What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday - 140

Well....here it is.  I spent the day playing in my craft room, enjoying the rain through the window and chatting with my daughter and friends.  This morning I went to Butler's Abroad to see what she's been up to.  I saw she had entered a card on Christmas Challenges with Sketches.  I liked her card and thought I'd give the challenge a go....  Still using scraps (this time from Graphic 45 - Christmas Emporium 8x8 paper pad.  I like how it turned out, and it's flat so mailing won't be too bad. 
I used the Spellbinder Beaded circle to frame the Santa graphic.  But wait....I felt it needed a bit of bling, so I cut gold mirror card stock using the Spellbinder Eyelet die.  I saved the die frame for later use and took the circles that were punched out.  That's what I glued to the frame.  I also used these circles to decorate one of the inside frames. 

How could I not pass this on to Pixie's Crafty Snippets.... this is becoming a favorite playground of mine.

Of course it's always my Wednesday haunt to post on What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday and check out what Julia and the gang are up to. 

Since this is a Christmas card....I thought I might just enter Crafty Hazel's Christmas Challenge after all, I love my dies and that's the challenge to use a die. 

Thanks again to Butlers Abroad...I found Sparkles Christmas Challenge.  Another fun blog to check out and I'm headed there next to do a bit more peeking around. 

I guess if I'm going to see what everyone is up to....I should get moving.  I may be away from the computer for a few days.  My son and his partner are coming on Friday, tomorrow my buddy Lynda and I will be working on recipes we can share at Weight Watchers and Saturday....it's an all day Valentine Crop at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique....oh, let's not forget Monday is my February Card Class.....whew, I think I need a nap....

  5. Beautiful Christmas card Mary, better than mine lol! I like my central image but not too happy with the other elements though, might try and make another one with that sketch at the weekend, it's a great one for using up scraps.


    1. It sure is a good way to use up scraps, and my scrap box is way to full. This one really, really worked out for me. I've got to tell you, until I added the black frame around the pieces, I was not so thrilled. I'm going to make a non Christmas one today and see what I come up with. If it works I'll post it. Thanks for stopping by....and thanks for the great comment.
