What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 216

Welcome if you are visiting here via Stamping Ground Blogspot 
If you wish to find out more about WOYWW hosted by Julia x
please check them out and join in the fun.

Hi Everyone it has been a few weeks since my last WOYWW post and hope this one finds you all well. We have been busy with many things, gardening and some DIY - refreshing  paintwork. Visiting and helping family members etc. I celebrated my 43rd Birthday and went out for a meal and a little trip to Hobbycraft x So now have some new glitters, material, buttons and plenty of adhesive for some new projects. It has certainly been warm so hand crafting a little less at the moment, mostly digital and a few handmade things for friends and family. I made a simple little beaded bracelet, card and matching gift wrap for my friend Michelle so here's the photos, now she has received it...
Artwork on card with credit to Fizzy Moon - With Friends Digi kit. Printed, matted and layered onto card, made a bow and then printed onto paper for the gift wrap to match. 
 On the Digital front have been trying lots of different styles and experimenting. I am a real fan of the threshold effect. This page was created using that on the image and a kit called Feel Artsy by NBK Designs. 
 Hope you are all having a Great Summer, cool drinks and maybe a few G&T's or your favourite tipple when time permits to stay cool  - Have a Great week Heather x

Hi Heather and Happy WOYWW!

Thanks for visiting, yes the pancakes were scrummy, made with rice flour, and the Greek yogurt was fat free.

I have more eggs so I must make that again soon, maybe tomorrow!

Happy belated birthday, did I say it before?

Pretty bracelet and card, and your digital art work is very interesting.

Hope you had a great birthday Heather. Love the bracelet, I like making button brooches...I like to make easy things that don't involve beads, as my FurChildren steal beads... Thanks for swinging by my blog earlier. Cx #60

Oh, I love that effect - wish I was a bit more digital and could do things like this.

Hi, Heather, thanks for your visit. :) I'm sure your friend will be pleased with her pretty new bracelet -- I agree with Claire that the variation in the sizes of the beads adds such a nice touch. I never think to use digital images to make a hybrid card -- good idea. Happy WOYWW! ~ Laura #101

Beautiful digital art, Heather - really striking in black and white, and what a pretty bracelet and card. She will be delighted with that.

Many thanks for your visit and your lovely comment. Glad you're enjoying the photos of our new house - my new bathroom suite is beautiful and I can't wait to start using it! It is tremendous fun watching the whole project taking shape, as you say, and each time we go, more has been done.

I am NOT enjoying the heat - too much to bear!!

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #112
