WOYWW & Cooking it Up with Katie

Bit messy today!
I've been trying to combine a couple of challenges and having a bit of a struggle, I'm not sure if it will come off or not.  This is how I left my desk last night when we went out to a fab restaurant for dinner.
As usual I've been working in about 6 square inches, with stuff pushed to either side and I daren't show you the floor.
The lego is there together with a piece of acetate packaging as my stamp positioner and it's invaluable in getting stamps just where I want them.
To see work desks across the world check out Julia's blog, the link is on my sidebar, she's the co-ordinator extraordinaire!
This is  my DT card for Cooking it Up with Katie, where the challenge is to include the recipe of  something girly, lilac and a bow. The sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish, so do pop over and see what you could win.
I thought that this embossing folder looked a bit like the piggies curly tails!

  3. Actually, I thought it didn't look cluttered at all, Chrissie. Is that nail polish remover I spy in the back? Thanks so much for your wonderful words today. It means a lot and makes me feel almost human. Happy WOYWW (#15).

  15. Wow, so cute and funny card.
    Free place on the desk must be enough for the card, no more. :))))))))

  16. Making your own stamp positioner is just taking craftiness too far! And don't we all work in about 6 inches of space? No matter how big our table is? But as long as we create beautiful stuff, it doesn't really matter.

  17. That card is really coming out well!

  21. cute card, scruffy desk LOL, but it doesn't matter - because its caused by lots (and lots) of creativity - a card per hour it seems... loving the one on your desk that you appear to be working on - and off to the left - that dandilion clock is really up my street.

    keep up the good work Chrissie - 6 inches to work in or not - its all good that comes out of it.

  64. Now that ‘is’ a desk top reminiscent of mine, although I think your clear space is a bit smaller than mine. But having said that, I think by the sound of it your floor might be in the same state as mine Lol!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog

  65. What a fun card!!

    I hope the card you are/were putting together on the photo of your desk comes together right for you!!

    I see a lot of scissors (sorry, I should have mentioned.. I have a complex about the lack of scissors I own. Three pairs, an appalling low amount!!)
