What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #175

Hello Everyone! I hope you are all well. I am feeling super happy because on Saturday morning my girlfriends are picking me up and we are going to an all day crop.  Love it!! A day filled with great conversations, loads of laughs and tons of great products at our fingertips (it will be held at a store).  So nothing pretty much should ruin this week while I daydream of the fun.  When you have two little ones around, crops are like little pieces of heaven.

Ok, no desk photo today but I want to share what I have been working on – a card for a card contest. I wouldn’t normally enter, I am more of a watcher. I always read the contests and that voice of mine talks me out of it but my dear friend Ashley pushed me to do it and it was just what I needed to squelch that procrastinator bug I get when I am scared of doing something.


My first card for a card contest.


If you click here you can see more about this card.  That is all I have to share today. Which is probably rather refreshing since I tend to ramble these days.

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!



MFT Guest Designer Contest – October 2012

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a Happy World Card Making day. I spent mine working on my very first contest entry.

The card I am sharing with you today is for the Guest Designer contest at My Favorite Things (MFT) using the MFTGUESTDT1012 sketch.

About a year ago I discovered the Pure Innnocence collection of My Favorite Things stamps at my LSS.  The quality of the impression was important for my coloring and the price was great. I purchased my first stamp and used my Copics to color the girl with brown skin. I loved the result and how easy I could paper pierce or color them.  My crafting girlfriends liked the way I changed her ethnicity with color.  I was hooked from that day forward.

This is my entry for the MFT Guest Designer Contest.

Isn’t she so cute set among the leaves?

I love using this Die-Namic because it is the perfect size for all of my cards and the edges are so elegant.  I paper pierced the little girl’s shirt and colored her and her pants with my Copics.  I used dimensional adhesive to raise the wagon for a 3D effect.  The Jillibean Soup label was just begging to be used with this stamp  so I kindly obliged. Twine was my go to instead of ribbon to compliment the theme. I just had to use the blossom gem since it echoed the blossoms in her shirt and who could resist a little bling?


I put the pop dots to make the wagon 3D
