Not much accomplished since last week - just this special order card (now the desk is in a mess again and will need tidied!). I had four boxes from SU delivered last Thursday but haven't made anything with them yet and as most my own 'stuff'' (ie not for customers) was pre-ordered from the new Autumn/Winter catalogue (which doesn't go live until the 1st Sept) I'm not allowed to show pictures of the actual products!! I have to do a lecture to young teachers on the teaching of craft this afternoon so I've been a bit stressed about that, but will maybe be able to focus on my own crafting when I get that over with!

A fairly tidy desk this week - just a decoupage design I intend to use for a couple of Anniversary cards.  I am expecting a big delivery of new SU pre-order goodies tomorrow so hopefully it will help to stir me up to make a few more cards - my energy levels have been very low and I haven't achieved much this week!!

Best Wishes

I made this card using a digital download stamp from Polkadoodles - it was really difficult to find a suitable image to wish my daughter well in her work placement year from uni in a virology lab - she is doing a degree in microbiology.  There is certainly a big shortage of science based stamps out there.  I used Promarkers for colouring and the paper is from a Carta Bella 6 x 6 pad called 'Rough and Tumble.' I used my favourite colour duo of red and duck egg again (suits all types of cards and can be used for both males and females) so I can enter the As you like it challenge.  I am also entering a couple of Anything Goes Challenges - Crafty Creations and Wednesday's Creative Inspirations.



I had a bit of a tidy up after making some sympathy cards and congratulations on passing exams cards for the shop.  I am currently working on a card for my daughter who has recently started her work placement year from uni in the virology part of a veterinary science research lab.  Its really very difficult to find suitable stamps for science themed cards but I found this digital stamp on Polkadoodles and coloured it using Promarkers,  although I would love a microscope stamp as her degree is in microbiology. I have chosen my papers and coloured the image but now have to put it all together - I think I will have  look at the Sketch Saturday challenge as they have loads of ideas for layouts and I find that I tend to stick to a few 'tried and trusted' designs, so a change would be nice!  Visit the other desks this week at Julia's blog HERE.
