Do you realize that Father's Day is THIS Sunday??? I really spaced it so have been working like crazy getting cards made for our kids and in-laws. Plus today is Desker Wednesday #315!! Seems my brain is having trouble keeping up with all that's going on! Anyway, I'm not working today so I get to visit desks all over the world (well, mostly Europe and U.S.). I sure enjoy seeing other crafters work areas and their fun projects. And this is all put together by Julia, the queen desker at the Stamping Ground. If you haven't been following this fun blog tour for the last 6 years just click the WOYWW logo in my sidebar. Now to my desk....
I have an absolute mess! I've been purging card stock, Sizzix dies, embellies, etc. that haven't been used in the past few years. Yes, years. I have my 5 shelf case that is totally reorganized yet it still is full! But it now has my Big Shot and Wizard, 2 cases of dies, some old card stock that I do use, and more. This stuff on the desk will be weeded down, put into boxes to get rid of or to sell, whatever. Hopefully later today I'll be a bit more organized. Through the purging I found another 1" x 3' of floor space. Yep, lots of stuff off the floor and on the shelves. That helped a lot!
Here's 2 of the cards I made to send to family members. One of them might see these but he doesn't know if it's one of these or the others that he's getting. I do have links to my shopping cart listed, just letting you know.
I used 2 stamp sets to make this card, Scenic View and Rock Notes. I used 2 different card stocks, Oatmeal Cookie (a great kraft paper!) and Cocoa Powder and also Cocoa Powder ink. How do you like the Chevrons on the banner? Those were made with our new punch system! I LOVE it! The cool handle is so easy to use!! And the punches (I used the Chevron Trends) slide into the handle so easily. Ok, enough advertising but I'll be posting pics of the handle and punches later.
Now my 2nd card. I used the same paper and one of the same stamp sets.
I used the Scenic View set for the boot tracks but the text is from the My Chanp set. This one has a lot of sports items in it. The same card stocks and ink was used, too.
So please remember to head over to the Stamping Ground and check out more desks! And if you want to leave a comment I'd appreciate it! And does anyone get slammed with hundreds of blog hits in a single day? I had 150 hits yesterday in just minutes! Any idea what's going on?
