Another Wednesday another peek at my desk, not that there's much occurring but here it is. I made this card last night using a new glue stamp pad I had bought with some Glamour Dust sprinkled on top of it. It was the first use of both these things and I was really pleased with how it turned out. The stamp is from the Martha Stewart Polar Snowflake Stamp and Punch.

These are cards that I did last week I'm only showing the messages as I used my new toy the Hot Foil Wizard and I had some comments wanting me to keep you updated on what I thought of it. I was really pleased with how they turned out, these are written freehand, I just need to learn to write in a straight line and I will be sorted, I can see me getting a lot of use from it, no more trying to find just the write stamp or sticker for a message I can just write it.

Thank you to everyone who visited me last time, I really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave. I am off out crafting with friends today so will need to start my visits tomorrow. Have a great Wednesday everyone.

There's not too much happening on my desk this week, but at long last there is activity hurrah!
I've not had much time for crafting as we got a dog a little while ago and it's taken me this long to get used to having him, do all the house stuff I need to and find time to craft but I think I'm managing to get the balance right at long last. It hasn't helped I've wrenched the muscles in my back but enough of that. Two pictures of Ben our newest addition.

On the desk today you can see the Christmas baubles I made, I cut them with my Craft Robo, then embossed with various folders to give some texture, these are for Fiona to send out instead of Christmas cards so she was very pleased to see them finished yesterday.

I've some new stamps to play with too, the La Pashe flipping style where you have the back and the front, I liked these for some male cards at least they will get a smile every time (I hope!)

The last picture is of my new toy my lovely Mum and Dad have given me early for Christmas, it is a Hot Foil Wizard Pen. I have had a little play with it and am looking forward to really getting to grips with it as I think it will be fab for greetings and foiled images, no doubt you will see some examples in the next few weeks but I think it will be after Christmas before I really get going with it.

Thanks for looking and sorry for not being around for ages, any comments you leave are read with great appreciation. If you want to join in got to The Stamping Ground where you will find all you need to know.
