What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #254

Good morning all you happy Wednesday snoopers and welcome to WOYWW!  I am here to show off my desk this morning and let you have a small glimpse into my little world.  If you would like the details on this little get together, just head over to Julia's blog and have a look around.  She created this and has all the instructions posted there to help you if you want to join us.  We are all a little snoopy at heart and I do love to visit every one's desk and see what you have going on.

There is not a lot going on here.  I've just finished a project that I cannot share with you right now but this is the leftover mess.  Since then I have just been cutting die cuts, lots of die cuts and will be listing them in my shop soon.  I did recently purchase a paper towel holder for my desk so now I don't have to go rummaging into a drawer to get one when my hands are all dirty.  A pretty good thing to have.

Well that's it for me this morning.  Hopefully next week I'll have something wonderfully creative to show you, but for today....this is it.  Now I'm off to visit as many desks as I can this morning!

We have been enjoying gorgeous weather in these parts the last couple of days and suddenly I'm feeling overwhelmed with yard work.  Easter is just around the corner and I have one last Easter card to share with you.  I used the Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments paper and a sparkly flourish from Heartfelt Creations to make this special card.

The bottom of the card is finished off with some crinkled seam binding and a bow.  Lots of distressing  and layers with the sweet flourish peeping out from under the corner.

Now I'm off for more coffee and to visit some blogs.  It's still early so I can linger over my cuppa and visit a spell!

WOYWW # 253

Good morning everyone and welcome to WOYWW!  Now if you are wondering about this you can head over to Julia's blog and she has all the specifics there.  Julia is the creator of this little bit of madness we all have on Wednesdays!

Front and center is a little grapevine wreath that I am going to re-work.  It has some of the colors I need but it also had peach colored bows that don't match anything in my house anymore.  I will add some burgundy colored flowers and maybe some green ribbon and it should work better for me.

Also you can see my new We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper with the teal colored handles.   I am learning to love this new tool.  And right behind the wreath you can see my new Tim Holtz Sponge holders.  They are small enough to handle even for flower petals.  I love them!

OK that's it for me today.  I'm off to visit as many of the desks as I can!

One of the earliest “art stamp” companies, Hampton has transformed over the years to become a complete provider of creative products such as stamps, inks, papers, kids crafts, stationery, scrapbooking supplies, and card making accessories for crafters of every age and skill level. We focus on working together with other companies through strong, personal relationships and licensing partnerships to consistently bring fun, inspiring products to market.

Hampton was acquired by National Spinning Co, Inc. of Washington, NC, our current home, in 2008. For more information, visit our Website.

This wonderful craft caddy will be given away without the supplies shown inside.  (Just the caddy will be given away).  So if you participate in both challenges for April  you will have a better chance to win.

The stamp I chose to work with is from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea 1 set made by Hampton Art.  I also used the Botanical Tea paper collection in making my card.

A Better look....

This is a card that was on my desk last Wednesday when I did the WOYWW party!  I just wanted to give you a better look at this one.  I just love the sweet image from G45 and the sentiment also and I handmade the flowers and dipped the centers in glitter.

I have been busy working on stripping wall paper from a bathroom and I've been down on my knees, not a bad thing and up on a ladder until this tired old body was screaming calf rope!  So I just sat for a whole day and looked at the wall and I could see the color I was wanting in my mind.  A sort of soft yellow very close to these yellow flowers.

Thus I have not been in my craft room much in the last several days.  Hoping I can finish up this week and have a wonderful fresh happy bathroom soon!
