Playtime

Morning folks....Christmas is just a distant memory now...I was itching to get the tree and decs down but being a superstitious old crone had to hang on until the 6th....it's that old Twelve Days of Christmas thing but the tree's been de-tinseled and de-baubled and is back in the loft and the decs are packed away for another year.
And before the Fiskars madness takes over again on Monday...I was determined to find some time over the weekend to have a little play but first the cubbyhole needed it's very own declutter...a place for everything and everything in it's place is my motto or otherwise I would spend hours looking for stuff... 

well as tidy as it's going to get at the moment but just enough room on my workdesk to have a little sneaky play with the new Heros...
two very different looks from the same stamps...



Catch up with you all tomorrow...with hopefully some more Hero Arts creations
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: .it looks like the "Black Squares with Exclamation Marks" syndrome is back...please leave me a comment if you can't see the pics....strange thing is that some folks can see them including me...others can't and to answer Janet's question...the inks used on the clock dial are Vintage Photo...Stormy Sky and Broken China....dabbed on with my fingers

So love to see other people's craft spaces. I'm a great believer in a place for everything too and have to tidy away after making something. Love these new stamps. Very into the clock, cog thing. Just bought the TH on the edge cog die and itching to use it.

Your craftroom is HEAVEN !!

Aud said...

Lovely cards Kath I got your pictures ok in this post but your pennyblack ones has an exclamation mark in them. Your craft room looks full of lush goodies, would be like putting a kid in a sweetie shop if you put me in there. Hope you get your blogger problem sorted I think lots of people are having problems with it. Audx

Paula (PEP) said...

I know exactly - when I move things about in my room I can't find where its new home is. Everything needs to be put back where it belongs. Have had a look at your posts in both Firefox & Safari - seems fine no black squares have returned. Not being a computer whiz I don't know if it makes a difference but I did clear my browsing history too.
Love the look of those stamps. Just spent my bookshop earnings on new PB in Sir Stamp sale!!

annanders said...

Kath, I'm very envious of your craft room. It looks absolutely fab. Only a little corner of the dinning room for me and I use the ironing board as a table when I'm watching t.v. Perhaps if I had a craft room I'd be a bit more creative and productive (only dreaming !!) Great cards as usual.
Take Care AnnX

Erika said...

Kath super cards loving the last one especially. Wish my room was as tidy as yours. Guess I might have to start making room to get in it today!!
Hugs Erika.

lilyf said...

What a tidy work room Kath - like the new Hero arts stamps on your desk and like what you have done with them too.

Dawn said...

Lovely cards! Can you come and do my craft room chaos for me? I started Christmas all neat and tidy and it now looks like we've been burgled in there!

Enfys said...

Your room looks fabulous Kath. Have spent the weekend doing a bit of organising in my tiny crafty cupboard myself. I love your cards, particularly the second one. Gorgeous combination of colours.

Hi Kath, I can see all the photos today and I think the first card is my favourite. Checked yesterdays post and I can see all the pics there too. I'm exhausted now after all my baking but I'm having a rest before my ironing. I've been good and haven't bought any of the new Hero Arts....yet!
