WOYWW #704

       WOYWW

Wednesday again, so I am linking to the Stamping Ground

Follow the link to find out more about What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday and maybe join in... This is my post for WOYWW #704

Anyway here's my worktable:


I was making a quick card...and then a tag...


Those Noolibird stamps were still sitting on my desk and some of the leaves I made for the journal page I shared last week... 


I just put the things together and ended up with this:


I added some buttons I had made from bookpaper, tied with rafia.




I am hoping that tomorrow I will finally get an email connection to this house - but I am not holding my breath! So far I have had 3 cancelled appointments... I should then be able to upload pictures easier, comment more easily and everything else. Hotspotting from my phone is not efficient!

To finish - a picture of our grandson Ollie, who is now 15 months old. He seemed to like playing with Grandma's handbag!




Anyway, all for now - see you next week...

Happy WOYWW!

Beccy's Place: A Month of Holiday Cards Challenge - G

      

I have just discovered Beccy's Place: A Month Of Holiday Cards Challenge - and it's in its 10th year!

I will definitely look out for it next year - and I will try and add a couple of cards this November. Next time I will try to do it day by day...

This card follows the G prompt - G is for Gnome.

I have had these gnomes on my desk for days - finally today I have made a card with one of them...This card is based on an idea from Hillbilly Scrappin'.


I used a bronze card base matted with a paper from Echo Park Gnome for Christmas, and then with a layer of white card.
I then added a strip formed by another couple of papers from the same paper pad, adding it at an angle.


I added a  gnome from Scrapbookingncraft and a sentiment from Echo Park ephemera.

Finally I added the red nose.


I will add this to the challenge

Now on to the challenge!
Our Song/Rhyme this fortnight is from Susan

What a wonderful bird the frog are!
When he stands he sit almost;
When he hop he fly almost.
He ain't got no sense hardly;
He ain't got no tail hardly either.
When he sit, he sits on what he ain't got almost.
