Morning lovely crafters and dear WOYWW friends. Wednesday again and I find myself a year older this week after my birthday on Monday!!!!

I have lots of lovely new crafty goodies to play with but at the minute my desk is full of Valentine's Day. I need to get some cards made quick sharp for the baskets I have of cards to sell.

I am keeping things simple so there is not really much to see this week. Apologies for the dark state of the photo, it doesn't seem to get light around here often at the minute.

This is one of the finished cards, again the photo is terrible due to the darkness of the day but you get the idea.

Short and sweet from me this morning as I'm flying out the door so I'll see you at a desk near you later on.

If you want to join in with this lovely weekly desk hop that is WOYWW then pop over to see the lovely Julia, HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Tempus Fugit! No sooner has the year started than Valentines day arrived!
Your card is gorgeous and doesn't look simple at all.
Thanks for your lovely message, I had a wonderful time with my family. Life has been hectic but such fleeting joy.

Oh, that's a REALLY pretty card...I like that very much. Clever you! Sorry to hear you're feeling rough, so many peeps seem to have had a bad dose of the lurgy. Dose yourself up with lots of TLC!
Hmmm, scaffolders....we've got to have the gable end of our house repointed and weather sealed. An essential job, esp after this recent wet weather but oh, how I'd rather spend the money on something else...sigh...ah well, gotta be done and maybe the scaffolder will be eye candy. Knowing my luck, the builder's bum will be the size of the Grand Canyon... :-)
hugs, LLJ 51 xx

I'm running late with my visits today [well late for me :-) ].
Have had a busy morning playing with the twins but they are both down for their naps now so I'm having a quick catch up with my friends :-)
Good luck with the card making.

I know what you mean about the grey dull skies Lisa - we are the same here and it looks like we are set for more of the same over the coming days. I hope you have managed to make your valentines cards ready to sell. I forgot that was coming up so I will have to get my thinking cap on. Thanks for popping by. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 74 x

Hi Lisa Thanks for stopping by my blog to check out my work desk. I hope you had a great birthday and enjoy all your new goodies.

Julia Dunnit said...

Well many happy returns Lisa - hope you had a fab day! Loving the valentine - when you say simple, you don't really mean it do you!

BJ said...

If that card is "simple" I'd be amazed to see the "difficult" ones, as it looks quite involved to me. My birthday is 2 weeks Saturday, the big 50! Thanks for the visit BJ#72

Happy belated birthday - I hope you had a great day! I know just what you mean about trying to photograph at this time of year, sometimes the British weather does not want to cooperate! Your card looks lovely! Thanks for the visit to my blog :)

Claire Phillips said...

Hi Lisa and a very happy belated birthday to you. Once again time flies by and it seems an age since I popped over. Between Christmas and a couple of family birthdays January seems to have flown by. Off to see Caleb's assembly tomorrow....Chinese New Year....he is a monkey - think his teacher knows him all too well! Cheers Claire x

Thanked for visiting yesterday and for answering my white card query.

What lovely cards...the gold flourish capitvated me. I think I might be headed over to the gold side after decades with silver. Who knew! I appreciate you stopping by the Fun Room earlier - I can't draw to save my life, that's why doing it with my left hadn was so freeing....and I must confess, but other 2 attempts weren't quite as successful! Hope you're having a good week.

Belated Birthday Greetings. Hope you enjoyed Monday.
Your desk is fine, just a delight for we crafters to view. As for the card, I like it, it is just right and not too fussy.
Thanks for visiting me earlier, sorry I am running late but being in another country and 8 hours time difference I am not sure what day I am on.
Hugs, Neet xx
