It's Wed :) so it's time to show off your space last week I missed out seeing most of the day I thought Wed was Thurs ... yep it happens every once in a while you loose track of the days, also  had the week off so that didn't help at all lol .
So Last week we moved out of our upstairs and into the main floor where we are knee deep in Reno's I feel like I'm a little kid and living in a blanket fort. That's because we have the studs up no walls and we have the TV and sofa on the other side of that you can spot the old fridge that came with the house it's old and we are keeping it till the Reno's are done no point in recking a new fridge lol
So I moved us all downstairs and we are even tented in with plastic to keep all that dust out, my space is just a makeshift space for the time being don't know where it will be next
so this was add done after I had set up and tried to figure out where to put things (still working on that)

Here's my desk today yep coloring in some images Kenny K and Stamp fairy for upcoming challenges and you can see my lovely candy I won from Barbara she sent me the card too I LOVE IT all that is dark and scary it's my fave time of year that and  Christmas of course !! I love looking at all the little details in her card and box so kewl and very inspiring :)

So pop by Julia's and check out everyone Else's space and join in

Hugs Nikki
I'll be popping in to visit those that leave a message
so tomorrow I have to get my costume ready and crave these bad boys up
what was I thinking when I got 3 big pumpkins I am one of those crazy carvers that use power tools  must grab the dermel and carve them all up
I have no idea what to carve in them though wonder what they will become

Christmas Set with dies !!

Set of Christmas Cards Using Die Cuts for me I rarely do this but I wanted to try something do different. They where kind of quick to make if you take away all the drying time for everything to set. The Snowflakes and trees have been glitter glued then I used some white flocking over top to give a sparkly snow effect. Which I am totally loving at the moment so you'll be seeing more of this I'm sure.

 Little sparkle and softness of snow

Something Witchy Comes this way !!!

Well it's been a while since I've added a page into my book it's been feeling neglected.
I've used one of my digi's from "Limited Runs she's called Broom Hilda" I've used a white gel pen on her eyes to give her an eerie look or a zombie style if you like. I drew on the Pentagram star with Ranger then embossed it with WOW glow in the dark and it does glow but doesn't take a picture really well.

Hey all It's that time again for What's on your Workdesk Wed.
So here's my space for the week Not overly Crazy A couple halloween images I was playing with and perhaps going to make a few new pages for my book so I can flip thru and get some inspiring ideas.
and of course the dreaded xmas cards lol but I've got at least 2 holidays on the go :)
For those of you who popped in last week and seen my two new Ink Pads I've compared 4 of them 
 Versafine , Memento, MementoLuxe and Stampology
I also used 3 different markers to colour the hearts too
Faber Castell, Prismacolor, Shinhan Touch Twin.
Here are my results 

Now it could have been me if I moved or stamped to hard just to be on the safe side 
But I love my Versafine I've had  for years and it just keeps on going.
Stampology has always been light black - Dries super quick and it was also stored on it's side to fit in my box of inks :)
MementoLuxe - Will stamp on Material and heat it up to set it in.(I didn't do that)
Mostly I store my inks upside down so they stay good or so I've been told
 Short and quick this week seeing Julia has the link up early .
hugs Nikki
I'll pop by your blogs in a bit !!!
Oh and I'm Number 39 again was last week too .. Freaky lol

WOYWW it's that day of the week where we show off our desks and here's mine with some yummy new stash. I  am so looking forward to playing with all of this and I wanted to try the difference between Memento and MementoLUXE and see if I could even tell the difference so it will be interesting to see.
I've never tried Glossy Accents or the crackle before so that should be fun I've seen so many people use it I'm sure it will be fun to play with and that little holly die is so much smaller then I thought a dime is bigger then each leaf but it will make some tiny wreathes. 

I haven't used those images I coloured in last week but I did manage to finish this Christmas card 
It's a little clean and Simple but I loved how the blues and purples blended in her little outfit

Here's my Space this week I've working on colouring a couple images for creations. I will eventually get to or they end up going in a envelope to mail off to my sister when I have to many. Which happens every once in a while I send it off to her once or twice a year .
To my left all my 12 by 12 sheet holder with some glues that fit along the edge I'd knock them everywhere if i didnt' my little boxes filled with stash My Ink Box on the right
Digi's on my desk are Dr Digi,Tiddly Inks,Limited Runs. The Yellow Shammie is my lazy way to clean my stamps I wet it all up and just lay my stamps on it flat and then can wipe them up. I haven't even used it yet but it won't be yellow for long.

Close up.
So if you wanna check out everyone else's desk over at Julia's and take a peak into everyone else's crafting area.
