WOYWW Feb 29/12

It is Wednesday, the day when you get to see crafters' desks from all over the internet from the WOYWW homebase, The Stamping Ground.
It is Wednesday afternoon and I am playing with ATCs today.  The purple and blue ones at the top right corner of my craft mat are now in the recycling bin because I just wasn't "feeling" them but I replaced them with two more like the copper and black one in the center.  I will post them when they are done!
Happy WOYWW everyone!!

I love the MFT Banner Dies!

Here is the card I made with the MFT Banner Dies and PaperSmooches stamps.  It was for a guy so I used darker colours for the design paper so it would temper the cutesy-factor of these adorable stamps :)
It was well received which is what I had hoped for!

Valentine's Day Card

Oops, I forgot to take a picture of the Valentine's Day card I made for my DH!  I couldn't craft today as I seem to have done something bad to the muscle in my shoulder/neck but I was able to take a picture of this card.  I hope that tomorrow I will be able to finish the card I was working on in my last post :)  This stamp is called Cupig (ha ha) and is from CC Designs.  Too cute!

WOYWW Feb 22/12

WOYWW!  If you haven't heard, that stands for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!  Take a picture of your workspace, blog a little bit about it and then head over to The Stamping Ground and add your link to the list! You will get to see lots of fun and fabulous spaces and meet wonderful crafters and artists! 
I am making a birthday card today and using my new MFT Die-namics banner die.  I glued the banners to some twine, was waiting for the glue to dry and decided it was a good time to take a picture for WOYWW.  
Thanks for dropping by and Happy WOYWW to everyone!

Smash-ish Book Finished

 I did it!  I finished making the smash type book for my sister!  And now it is in the mail and on its way to her.  I used my Bind It All to bind it and lots of different design papers inside.  I added a a couple of envelopes inside to hold little bits so she can add them in how she likes and also to store anything she wants to "smash" in.  I tried not to add too much ephemera inside so that she will be able to make it her own vision and not mine.  
I sure hope she will like it!

WOYWW Feb 15/12

It is Wednesday and that means it is time to go snooping around the internet and see loads of fun and crafty workdesks!  All you have to do is go to the Stamping Ground, hosted by the lovely Miss Julia, and you can hop around and see what everyone is up to!  It's fun and you can join in too!
Today on my desk is the Smash-type book I have made for my sister.  I was just putting a few final touches on it with ribbon and a bit of blingy pieces hanging on the coil binding.  Ooh, and that is my Tim Holtz Trinket Box you can see open at the top right!  I love that little box!  I use it to hold all sorts of little bits and pieces and have been known to just sit with it open and play with all the bits inside, ha ha!
Thanks for visiting!  I am off to go visit as many WOYWWers as I can now!

Get Well Card

This a a Get Well card for a friend's mom.  For the stamped image, I coloured a stamp with Pitt Big Brush pens and then stamped the image.  I really like how this technique turned out here, even the blue corner which started to dry out by the time I stamped gives it a nice effect.

Two Cards

 These are two cards I made this week.  
The first is a birthday card for my niece made with a cute Mimi stamp by Penny Black.
And the second one is a card for some friends that got a new puppy! The puppy stamp is a Smoochables stamp.  And the dog has stripes
because the new puppy has brindle colouring and that is as close as I could get to his colouring, lol!    The sentiment on the card is by AmyR, I just love her sentiments!

WOYWW Feb 1/12

Happy WOYWW!  It is Wednesday and that means you should zip over to The Stamping Ground where you can see what is on crafty workdesks from all over the world! 
Today on my desk is the mess where I dumped all the paper and envelopes to work on this "smash" type book for my sister that you see pictured on the right.  I finally did the background for the covers of the book and wire bound it and now I just have to add bits and pieces to the inside and finish the covers!  I had started this at the end of October and then put it all to the side to work on xmas cards but I will finish it now.  Really I will, ha ha!
Thanks for visiting and I will visit as many desks as I can in between working on this book and a couple of cards I have to make!
