My goodness, it's Wednesday again already!! And that means its time for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday over at the Stamping Ground.

First off, I want to say a big thank you to the lovely ladies that left me comments last week when my mojo had abandoned me; they really made me smile. And I took Julia's advice and put crafting aside for a while and focused on other things (namely getting excited about the fact that filming has started on The Hobbit - cue girlie squeal and clapping.... yes I am a geek at heart!)

Anyway, this week.... look! I've started making things (mostly a mess!!) again.

On my cutting mat you can see a couple of little bookmarks I've been working on; a great experiment with using different colours together for me, and I love playing with my little spray bottle - it belonged to my hubby but once it was empty I liberated it. It gives a really fine mist.

To the right and in the clear CD case at the back are stamps that I've played with on the bookmarks.

And over to the left is a WIP. One of my friends is having an engagement party in a few weeks time and thankfully she told me the decorations and cake are going to be in her chosen wedding colours; of course I had to ask what those colours were in order to make a special card that matches lol. She has chosen white and aqua.... making me realise I have nothing aqua!!! So far I have these panels done (you can see the masks I made to make the bouquet) and coloured the roses with a 'kingfisher blue' watercolour pencil - hopefully it'll be close enough to her chosen colour. Just need to find some backing paper to layer the main panel onto, though I think silver would compliment it too.

Thanks for stopping by. I will definitely stop by a few more desks this afternoon now I'm back in the flow.
Take care and happy crafting,
Charli x

EDIT: Oh my goodness, I do appologise for the state of my cutting mat! I never realised it was so filthy lol!! Think I'd better give it a clean before next week!!

That bouquet you've done is fab - is that just one singlebud stamp like on the post it and you've stamped it into a bouquet style?? Love everything else that's going on , especially the clock face and colours - very vintage.

What i don't realize is if truth be told how you're no longer really much
more smartly-preferred than you might be now. You're very intelligent. You recognize therefore significantly on the subject of this subject, produced me in my view imagine it from so many various angles. Its like women and men are not interested unless it's something to
accomplish with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. Always deal with it up!
