Quick Cute Card for Thursday!!

Hello bloggers! Well the weather can't seem to make its mind up today. One minute the sun is out the next hail stones!!! Tonight I have made a quick card just using a stamp & no paper as the challenge over at  Cute Card Thursday is just that - No designer papers..... I've gone for no papers at all (apart from the one to make my photo look pretty!!!) Hope you all have a good evening.  Don't forget I have blog candy on offer with up to 3 entries - if you want to play along

Say it with words monochrome card

Tonight I was feeling inspired by Susie's challenge over at Die cut Dreams so I made this card. I have used Paper Makeup Stamps that I won from a challenge & Versa brown ink Brown ribbon is from my stash
I am entering this card into the Die cut Dreams challenge - Words no stamped images & Kaboodle Doodle challenge - monochrome ( I hope this counts as monochrome?!!)
looks a bit cockeyed in the photo!!

A little bit of knitting!

This is an order I did for a couple recently. The male has a watch & wooden beads as part of his detail as requested. The female has a slim silver watch, hoop earrings, flowered top, necklace & glasses as her requested detail. They were well recieved & it brings a smile to my face knowing I have brought a smile to someone elses face with my work.

WOYWDW??? - a ha - not "What" but "Where" is my Workdesk????

This is a picture of where my desk use to be in the front room. Please excuse the stuff! Ok now can you guess where I have moved my work desk (& stash) too??? You will never guess!!! You will think I am crazy too!! my new craft room is now in my Bathroom!!!!! No joke!! here's pictures The knitted clown & cowboy are on top of the toilet (the lid is obviously shut!!) My knitting & dirty washing!! Is IN the bath!! You can just see my desk on the right & corner of bath on the left That is pictures of the whole room totally rammed full of my craft stuff!! Have I gone crazy? Probably!! As you may already know I live in a static caravan & we have a shower room, seperate toilet & then a bathroom with a second toilet. Because of the lack of space the bathroom was just a constant dumping ground for stuff. So I shuffled everything around & moved myself into here instead. Obviously I can't use my bath, but then I couldn't use it before either :-( oh well its worth it to …
