Killer Heels!

Here is a card I have made for my Daughter Sarah's birthday.  Her birthday isn't until Friday but she has promised not to sneek a peek on my blog until then.  Sarah always wears 'killer heels' so I thought this card would be perfect.

The image is from my 'mad cow' folder (see my last post). I stamped it a few years ago at a craft club held at a local craft shop (now closed).  I borrowed the stamp from a friend so I can't remember the make.  I coloured the shoe in with Festive Berries DI and glazed it with glossy accents.  The label and corners are from Spellbinders Parisian Accents and the red card is embossed with a polka dot mask from Creative Expressions.  The ribbon, stones and corner brads are from my stash. I also distressed the image and the sentiment with the DI.  I'm trying to improve my photo's - tried the 'card in a box and an ottlite' suggestion from a fellow blogger.  Hopefully a slight improvement. I do admit I am no photographer though!!

What's on your Workdesk? Wednesday 138

First of all, thank you to all my blogging friends who gave me advice to help with my inspiration block. I am still having problems but have started crafting again!  Now to my desk - the folder (my husband says it is very apt) contains all sorts of images.  Some are pre-printed and some are stamped by me.  I was looking through and found a stamped image that will be cool for my Daughters birthday next week.  I can't show you as Sarah might visit my blog and there will go the surprise!  To the left is a simple card using a stamp from a new clear set from Craftwork Cards and some Spellbinder dies.  I made it yesterday but added stickles this morning.  A very warm welcome to my new followers, I'm very excited to be in double figures! Lou, I have been trying to leave comments but blogger doesn't seem to be playing - I am reading all your posts though and will keep trying!  To join in the Wednesday fun hop along to Julia's place.  Have a fabulous Wednesday and a brilliant week xxx

What's on your Workdesk? 137

Help! I need inspiration!

I am feeling better than last week and want (and need) to make some cards but seem to have no ideas!  So today, my desk is covered with magazines, mostly Craft Stamper, to try and kick my creativity into action.  I am also hoping that peeking into your lovely craft spaces will inspire me as you all seem to constantly come up with amazing creations.  Maybe some of your talent will rub off on me.  I can but hope!  If you want to get inspired too and have not joined in the Wednesday fun before, head over to Julia's Fab Blog  and have a look at everone's crafty desks. Have a fab Wednesday everyone and a happy and creative week! xx

What's on your Workdesk? Wednesday 136

So sorry that there is nothing for you to look a today.  I am an M.E. sufferer and have been having a particularly bad time with it and have not been able to craft at all - boo hoo!!  I would also like to apologise to my wonderful followers for the lack of posts, hopefully soon I will be able to do lots more and make my blog more interesting, thank you for sticking with me!  I will be late scooting round my desk buddies as I have a family funeral to attend today but I will get there.  Have a good WOYWW and a fab week. Join in the fun at Julia's Place  Thank you for visiting my 'neglected' desk! xxx

What's on your Workdesk? Wednesday 135

I am ashamed to say that no crafting has been done on my desk, or anywhere else, this last week.  Today I thought I would just play.  I was very late getting started and wasn't sure what to do but decided on tags.  I have never tried these before so not sure if I will end up with a finished project or a fuller bin - we shall see! To join in the WOYWW fun, head over to Julia's  wonderful blog.  Have a fab day and thank you for calling in xx
