Still got a messy desk this week.  Didn't do much crafting yesterday, but I managed to 'have a play' after my darling Grandson  Owen finally went to bed.  He is having a sleepover here tonight and we are going to have fun together tomorrow as he is having a day here at Granny's instead of with the childminder.
I was playing yet again with Spyders digi stamps.  Truth is I printed some out earlier for Owen to colour in and when I was clearing up last night I decided to colour in the ones that were left.
Then I had a 'lightbulb' moment and remembered I had some coaster blanks from my cross stitch days so decided to make a coaster, name card and napkin ring set, and this is what is lying in the middle of my desk.
So here is a better picture of them

Might even pop these into Spyders October challenge.  I have had stern words with myself as I need to get down to some actual cardmaking.  Oh dear Mr Linkz is telling me I have already entered Spyders challenge, never mind, I enjoyed making them but will need to make more for using on Christmas day.
Hope you all have a great day


  1. I love that penguin, he is cute. Great lightbulb moment put to good use!

  2. Well on track with the Christmas things - well done - and looks very tidy to me!

  4. oh great desk love the cracker you have on there love cheryl xxx

  5. well done on your xmas makes, im still in denial its fast approaching lol

  6. aw, Carolynne these are fantastic, what a fabulous idea, (going to have to borrow these to show off in the store!!I've added your card to Mr Linky, (smacked his wrists) and you are in the challenge now! Thank you sooo much for joining in!


  7. I can now see why he wouldn't work Carolynne, it's because you used your blog addy (carolynnesblog) and not your 'post title' addy, on your first card, so, this card was ok on the post title which is carolynnesblog/2010/10woyww (plus a bit more) If you click on the title of all your posts you will see they have your blog addy and then the post title, so Mr Linky thought you were adding the same card again! (aw, bless him!)


  8. Hi Carolyn, great set, lots of fun to eat with them around! A Christmas set would be wonderful, don't you just love Christmas?
