A very happy WOYWW to everyone, it’s Wednesday again that day when we get to nosey look at everyone’s creative crafty workdesks and spaces around the globe. Hop over to the Stamping Ground, Julia the host will make you most welcome and there’s some fab sites you will not want to miss visiting. 
I have been busy with work and haven’t been around much the last few weeks, sorry that I also haven’t been visiting my regular favourite blogs recently either...I will be back to normal soon (I hope) I am still managing to make the odd car here and there and have made a few special birthday cards which I will post soon and the simple baby card below. 
latest card 
My desk isn’t too exciting this week as you can see in the pics taken yesterday before work there’s some magazine freebies to put away and a pile of scrap papers to sort. I had planned to do more scrapbooking this far it hasnt gone to plan and theres a pile of photos that I plan to start far I have finshed one scrap page in two years!... so progress is slow to say the least! I’ve also been doing some colouring with the cute Tatty Twinkle stamps,I don’t have any particular card in mind but I do enjoy colouring them and its something I can dip in and out of when I don't have much time. I have just finished and sent a baby card for one of my hubbys work colleagues, I kept the designs simple and decided to send the cute stork one above so I now I also have a spare card for the next baby girl that arrives(hiding in pile of scraps on desk), as usual I couldn’t resist using a button or two!

 waiting for action !

bits 'n' bobs too sort  and put away

I’m off too work soon and will be visiting when I get back later today, as usual at the minute it may take me a few days to come visit everyone but I will. I hope you have a good week ahead and are having lots of crafty fun.I will return the visit very soon and appreciate you popping in...crafty hugs Andrea X

  7. Hello Andrea. Lovely card there on your desk today. Well done. There's no rush - it often takes me 'til the next Tuesday to visit folk - and I VERY rarely get around everyone. I'm retired, so am not out at work - but still don't have time for that.
    Take care. God bless.

  9. Hi Andrea, I missed last week too because of work- irritating when life gets in the way of fun, isn't it? Love the baby card, Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz xx #19

  10. This is a fabulous baby card Andrea, I love your CAS design.
    It sounds like your scrapbooking is about as productive as mine - I have loads of photographs of hubby and the boys, but it takes me so long to finish a layout and they usually end up looking like a large card!

  11. Great space and so very much going on. Love the little images you have been coloring!

  12. Thanks for sharing you desk with us. The card is so cute.

  13. Hi Andrea, loving your card designs. Work can be such a spoil-sport when you want to craft but that's life Lol! Still, it does pay for all the lovely new craft stuff.
    Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x #41

  14. At least you are getting some cards made, it is always hard when you have to balance work and play with the necessity to create. Have a wonderful week and happy WOYWW

  15. Cool card! Love the textured cardstock you've used. We can't get anything like that here in the States. I have to second and third and....a white desk! Still white?! Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #76 a bit late

  16. Nice desk! it looks well used and loved : ) I really like your baby card. That stork is almost huggable! : )


  17. I can totally relate to being behind on the scrapbooking. I have a stack of photos that I am going to scrap Project Life style. That is one thing I plan on doing this weekend. The stork card is adorable. :-)

  18. Love your stork card! I really enjoy having some projects on hand that I can just do with the spare minute. Happy Belated WOYWW! #65

  19. How's this for a late visit, ha?! I've been gone (for those who don't know) and trying to catch up on my visits to my favorite blogs. I absolutely adore this baby card, Andrea! That buttoned bow is spectacular!! Great busy desk, too. I think it's fab that you get in some coloring when you can. Those images will always be there, even after you retire, and think how easy it will be to pop a card together in the future!! Hugs, Darnell


Thank you for commenting on my blog, I read and appreciate every one of them!
