WOYWW #221

It's Wednesday, which means its the day Julia from the Stamping Ground has designated as our weekly peek into others places day!

I've finally put some time in, first because I have cards that had to be made, then more so because I realize I only have a few weeks to stock up for a holiday craft show, and I sold almost everything last year. Now, that means you'll be seeing some Christmas cards in the very near future...I did get the stamp box out, and the papers, and yes, even ordered the holiday train stamp from Stampendous that matches the snowy scene postcard from last year.

But on the desk now, the card blanks that have been run through various texture folders for the patchwork patterned pieces I did weeks ago, which you can sorta see to the right. Towards the back, my die mask foe the butterfly branch die and stamp set from Our Daily Bread...starting to be my new fave company. A few ink pads that didn't make their way home, and in the front left is the cover a stamp roller, with the mattress ticking stamp from Impression Obsession. I really need to use that more often!

So there it go hit Julia's to visit some other great desks! Have a great week and Labor Day everyone.

WOYWW #219

Wow! Now that the weather has finally gotten nice (well for me, I love these nippy mornings)

summer is just flying by, as are the weeks. it's Wednesday that means its "what's on your work desk Wednesday" as envisioned by our hostess Julia at the StampingGround.

As I'm still trying to adapt to an iPad only world, this will be short.

Here I have some pieces-parts of some cards I'm making for my Brothers anniversary , as well as a few extras for the craft show in November. After selling out last year, then having to make a ton more Christmas cards for my own use, I'm being proactive! The main image is a branch of butterflies, which thankfully has a coordinating die, from Our Daily Bread, a great company I discovered at the Heirloom Rubber Stamp show.
I've done the coloring with a waterbrush and distress markers. My ovals ate all cut out, waiting for their turn.

Here is the first card, my template, if you will before I went Into "production". Not sure why its so blue...the base is actually a silver/gray, the butterflies are milled lavender, dusty concord and lilac.

So, there it is...if I can get the link thing to work, go hop over to Julia's to catch the rest of the WOYWW excitement, Have a good week everyone.
