Another Wednesday, another hump day, another opportunity to tour desks around the world! Yep, today is your lucky day! If you don't know what this is all about check out this particular post at the Stamping Ground. So, here's my desk last night...
Let's see what's on my desk. Hmmm. Left to right: paper trimmers, paper, twine, stamps, stamp area with card I'm working on, more twine, ink pad, bone folders... Yeah, busy. I'm working on my 4 card samples for my March class. I have to have them all done with directions and supply list by Monday! I've gotta get it in gear but I just purchased the stamps and paper this past Monday.
I'm still needing some Valentines and adapted a cool sketch from 52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown for this one. I made my Christmas card last Saturday for the challenge and just kept on going.... like the Energizer Bunny.
Now, believe it or not, the stamped heart is very purple! I don't know why it comes out mostly blue when taking the photograph. I tried to fix it in Photoshop but I ended up with some real wonky colors! Oh well. Pattern paper is from a collection called Maggie which I purchased when The Angel Company was still in business. Stamped heart is from a set called Hearts by Inkadinkado. I added little hearts from a small punch then added a bunch of itty bitty rhinestones.
And a little bow made from twine from The Twinery and I'm all done! How's that for a non-traditional Valentine?
If you're so inclined to leave a comment, great! If not, that's ok too! But please go to the Stamping Ground and check out other desks and projects when you're finished here. It's great fun and you will get inspired!
As a special note.... today (Tuesday) is my birthday. My hubby and kids gave me the most amazing gift.... Hubby and I get to see George Strait in Phoenix, AZ this Friday night!!!! I love his pure country music and here's how he rates in our house...
This is a sign hanging at our back door. Yep. He can keep his boots on in my house. LOL! Hope you all have a great week and, if you're so inclined, please leave me a comment about my post. Then be sure you head off to the Stamping Ground and check out all the cool work areas linked there!
I hope to visit desks tonight and on Thursday as we'll be taking my mom to the hospital for a blood transfusion on Wednesday early, all day. She has MDS, a pre-leukemia, and the aranesp shots that she's been taking are not working. The doctor said this is the last thing we can do. Do appreciate your prayers.
