Good morning, everyone. I took these pictures last night so I could have them up in a timely fashion. After two exhausting days of taking care of a stray and not getting much work done, I did not foresee anything happening tonight.
That's my desk? What's on yours? When you are done visiting me in the Ozarks, please hop on over to Stamping Ground where Miss Julia has a long list of other studios you can peek into. No standing on an up-turned milk pail to look in the window. We open the doors wide and welcome you. We won’t touch.. just look. J I can't wait to peek but if Bob is home for I might be late again getting 'round. Please leave your number and you'll be first on my list.
A bit on the tidy side but all the tools still out from our quarterly Virtual Stamp Night weekend at Splitcoast Stampers. Five challenges on Friday night then eight on Saturday. I only got 2 of the cards done. I spent the first part of the day totally clearing off the work table, washing it down then staging the area with all the things I'd need to make cards. I have this week to complete the challenges so am hoping to work a little each evening.
The black bowls hold 2 different shades of green pine bough punch outs from Martha Stewart. One of the cards I made had a Christmas wreath on the front. I'll be showing that on Thursday.
The stamp pad is the new Gold Shine from Teresa Collins with Color Box. This pad is really juicy. Took a couple of scrubs to get the ink all off my stamp. What I fell in love with is that when you stamp with this ink then heat set it, you get about as close to an gold emboss look as you can get - without the embossing powder mess! She is going to be selling her new line through JoAnns Fabric and Crafts stores.
Here's another view of the desk:
I had 4x6' of space to work on. You can just see the corner of my Vagabond in the lower left corner. And I always put my trimmer on a shelf liner. Keeps it from sliding around on the desk.
I still have my granddaughter's spring cards to do. I'm doing a version of this one from LAWN FAWN:
I really like the flower border die. I might be able to get it on my Simon Says order.
