What's On Your Christmas Workdesk?!

Happy Wednesday! Time for a snoop around the desks again, visit Julia if you want and have time to join the fun.

I have a male card on my desk today, I used lots of TH stamps and Hero Arts grid pattern to make it. The design paper is MME Bella Bella, the metal thingie says Change Your Perspective and I think it's from one of hubby's shirts, it fits in with the travel them. I'm entering Sir Stampalots Challenge with it.

The finished coffee filter album is hidden again, I'll show it the 1st January. I'm altering Christmas tags with a free stamp from a magazine and have a pile of cardboard cut out from a box, will use bits of it for the tags.

My crafting and commenting has been slow since the two bombs here in Stockholm, I had plans to visit a shop just by one of the bomb sites that day but luckily I had to do something else and none of the shoppers was hurt. Just now I'm looking forward to a peaceful Christmas with family and lots of cakes and chocolate. The best cure for mojo downs :)

I wish you all the best for Christmas!

  2. I think I just lost my last post so will start again Marrit.

    It was so forunate you did not visit the shops that day, strange how things turn out sometimes.

    Your card is lovely, such a wonderful vintage feel to it - I am sure Sir Tim would thoroughly approve of your super work.

    I wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas.

  10. Beautiful, creative card. So sorry you are having to go through all that bomb stuff, when will it stop.

  11. Wonderful desk and card. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! #72

  12. Thank God you had something else to do. There are no words strong enough to describe the cowards that do things like that.

    I hope that is the end of it and your holidays and new year are blessed and peaceful.

  13. Great male card!

    Those bomb news was really frightening! We are coming to Stockholm in january...

    Onko keskustassa muita hyviä askartelu/leimailukauppoja kuin Panduro ja sitten se siinä Sveavägenillä kulman takana...? (olikohan Kreatima...)

    Oikein mukavaa Joulua ja onnellista vuotta 2011 sinne Ruotsinmaalle!

  14. Stunning work! Thanks for sharing with us at Sir stampalot and good luck!

  15. Glad your plans changed and you stayed safe.
    I adore your male card, its ace.
    Wishing you Happy Christmas :D

  16. Maarit - Glad that you are all safe following the bombs. Many years ago, we had a car bomb malfunction right outside our offices. Even though we too were safe, it certainly shakes you up a bit thinking of what might have been.

    Wishing you happy holidays, and lovely flights of imagination through those travel cards. Plus lots of cake, chocolate and family time, of course!
