What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #188

Hello Friends and Happy New Year!  I missed seeing all of your creative goodness the passed few weeks while on vacation.  But I am back and ready to play. Unfortunately, at the end of my vacation I managed to catch a bad cold and have spent all of last week and the beginning of this one coughing myself to sleep.  Yuk!  So I haven’t been able to jump right in to all the projects I had dreamed up while away for each day, exhaustion takes hold.

The start of some new things on my desk.

On to my desk, well on the left you can see some stamps I am gathering. I am trying to decide whether I want to make my own Project Life cards or buy them like I usually do. I have a box of Journaling cards from last year, that  did not use so I don’t even have to cut the paper. I just need to ink and stamp.  I know it will be economically smart to make my own but will I stick with it? Or should I make a whole bunch while watching TV and then have them ready?  Hmmm.. so much to think about.

In the middle of the screen I have a box containing my recent cutting phase with my Cricut. I cut up a bunch of Valentines images and now you can see me playing around with different inks before I use them on some cards. I am using Distress  inks and Pigment inks and I also have a great new embossing folder that says love to use on them.  I will share photos when I complete some cards.

Well I am off to go see what you all have been up to while I was away!

If you haven’t learned about this amazing creative journey you can take every Wednesday, then head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Have a blessed day!



‘Anything Goes’ Challenge with Mo’s Digital Designs

My first Mo’s Digital Contest entry!! Isn’t she cute?

I decided that this year, I will enter some contests.  A few months back I entered my first contest and it was a fun experience. I am looking forward to pushing myself to participate in 2013.

I love Mo’s digital designs they are great for me to continue to stretch my Copic skills.

This card could be a New Year’s card or anytime card. That is what I like about the message.  It makes for a more versatile card.

I colored the image in with my Copic Markers and used a grass die cut and popped it with dots for more design interest.

Card ingredients:

Copics: B00, B02, G21, YR24, E00, E11, E13, E79, E47, E74, G21, G28, R24, R22

Dies: Spellbinder Large circle, MFT Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax,  Taylored Expressions Grass Border
