WOYWW 192 and a Truck

Another Wednesday and again it's What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!  I'm late today getting my post going but here it is!  And thanks to Julia at the Stamping Ground for organizing this huge tour of blogs to see other crafters' desks and spaces.  You even get to see some cool projects in progress!  So, without further ado, here's my desk:


There is a lot going on. I have stamps off to the left, paper in the center, adhesives at the top, and a pencil right in the middle.  I'm working on some card samples for a class on Feb. 27 at the scrapbook store in Green Valley, AZ.  I'm so far behind and this week is no better.  Today I have a private class with a gal to teach her the Magic Card.  I haven't made this card for a month so, with instructions in hand, we'll have a blast getting it made. I'll post our cards later as I've got my camera packed with the supplies. Now for a card sample in progress...


This truck is from a Hero Arts set  that I use frequently.  But can you guess what that shiny embossed piece is??  Its the seal from a coffee can that I die cut then used the Cuttleblug Diamond Grid embossing folder!  I save every seal like this as they are wonderful to use!!!  I don't know why but I have an easier time making masculine cards than feminine... must be the "tomboy" in me!

So now that you've toured my desk (wait 'til I show you my closet!!) click HERE to go to the Stamping Ground.  Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!

I am really liking the masculine feel of your card with the diamond grid,brilliant idea! I struggle with cards for males if you don't know already. I am guessed that was aluminum foil but never a coffee can seal neat. Now I am going to scour for some. Tamika #125

I love how we crafters save all kinds of things to re-purpose in our hobby/work!! Have a great day. Helen, 14

Whoa,that tartan made my eyes go funny!!! It's great but I bet you have to use it in small quantities :) I LOVE that metallic looking background to the truck, so funky. I find it easier doing masculine stuff too, have never been the sweet girly type. As a youngster I was always on my bike or riding horses, never playing with dolls. Maybe that's why I was happy raising my two boys....I loved doing all the boy stuff with them!!
Hugs, LLJ 44 xx

Lovin that truck. I have the opposite issue - I have trouble making masculine cards. I would have guessed the metal look was tin foil, but I need to start saving mine.
