Another Wednesday, another desk, another card. Yep, I managed to get some desk time yesterday and you get to see one of my cards along with the "famous" desk blog tour instigated by head desker Julia at the Stamping Ground almost 5 years ago! Are you ready? Get your favorite beverage to enjoy as you hop around the world? Here we go!!
I had just finished making 4 photo cards for Mother's Day and a card shown below. Therefore my desk isn't too busy. Let's see.... left to right: paper trimmers & Cricut, stamps, craft mat with cards & black ink pad, acrylic blocks, ATG gun with new package of foam mounting tape. At top are the shelves full of stuff. I really need to go through that stuff but no desire to do that yet. ( The photo cards will be the focus of my post on Friday.)
And along with my desk I have a card that I made to go with the Tuesday Morning Sketch #247. There's no stamping as the paper collection, Simple Story's "Summer Fresh", has some great stickers that I decided to use. This card will be for my mom on Mother's Day.
Mom and Dad have been to Albuquerque, NM a couple times to see the Balloon Fest. I think she will like this.
I added the 3 little red stickers under the text for some bling. I used my Spellbinders "Beaded Ovals" die for the red gingham piece. I should have had a red layer under the card-sized yellow but I wasn't planning on the red on the balloon and ribbon until they wouldn't stand out enough with just the yellow. Oh well.
I hope you enjoyed my desk and card and now, after you leave a comment if you so desire, pop on over to the Stamping Ground and Tuesday Morning Sketches to see more! I did get more visiting done last week for the desk blog tour than the week before but today I'll be taking care of mom while dad goes golfing for his birthday. I'll be taking mom out for lunch then a couple errands but won't have much computer time until Thursday after work. For those deskers who visit, I will get back to you this week.
P.S. Friday I'll be getting fast internet speeds! Going from 1.5 Mbps to at least 20! Amazon Prime Video will work again!
