WHAT'S ON YOUR WORKDESK WEDNESDAY???

 Well - here we are with both Wednesday AND February!!! Goodness me, soon be time to start on the Chrimbo cards again...
So there's the usual array of chaos, although I always clear up before bed...Brownie points for me! Been doing a bit of this and that...I seem to have be struck down with a serious case of Vintage Girlyitis and Shabby Chicitocis. I am all for the odd flower and oldy-worldy stuff but this is a bordering on very frilly, feminine ground for me..quite bizarre considering I was listening to some serious rock music during the frolics...
Second card design for my next workshop...I have resolved myself to the fact that my design process is not subject to the Law of Time. Not at all. In other words, I just luuuurve to play and 'officially' do not care if I spend a whole day on one little creation.
I don't know if it is the sight of daffodils, all this Valentine's what-not or just too many glue fumes but me is one big girly with today's card...pastel pinks and greens, hearts, lace, lovey-dovey sentiment and - swoon - flowers! By the weekend I will be strolling along the riverside in a Crinoline dress, reading poetry and awaiting Mr. Darcy...

  I picked up a really cheap paper-punch from a pound shop a while back (can't all have the Martha's). It only works on thin paper but I do love the lace effect it gives to paper-edges...

The flowers are just rolled strips of sticky-back canvas, pre-coloured with distress inks. I am glad I went for some distressed torn paper, the twine and random machine stitching around the edges as it does stop the whole thing being too sweet! Can't have that now....can I?

I am going to enter it into a few challenges seeing it is the month of love...

Time to sign off from nocturnal blogging. Enjoy the weekend and see you around...

Hello Sarah, You've clearly been afflicted with the same itis as Julia - it's the Valentine affect and it's contagious I'm afraid. Your card is a beauty and love those flowers. BTW, you'll recover completely on 15th. Elizabeth x #96

Yep, it's very girly but I do love it, which is odd... I'm not the 'girly type. I guess the colours speak to me, that pink is beautiful, and the stitching is awesome. I LOVE random stitching!!!
