Desks and a Set of Cards

It's pretty chilly here in southern Arizona.  We even had some snow flurries yesterday which turned to rain and was over in a half hour.  It was a good opportunity to work on some projects and, late afternoon, take my desk picture.  Desk picture, you say??  Yep, every Wednesday I join a group of crafters brought together by Julia at the Stamping Ground to show you, my cherished reader, where we craft. If you would like more info on this weekly get together please click on Julia's page tab at the top of the Stamping Ground blog  called What is WOYWW?.  And now on to my desk...


Here I've just finished making a Valentine card with a new stamp set available Friday in our FSJ Spring Mini catalog.  You can see the dies and stamps center front and the card on my white paper stack on the left (this is where I actually stamp as the paper is scrap and gets tossed when "dirty".  I'll show you the card later.  There's 3 rolls of glue dots on the far left and a bag of chocolates (was here last week too) in front of the Cricut.    And now on to what I was working on last Wednesday...


I have so much 6" x 6" paper pads that I've acquired over the last 4 - 5 years and I really need to use them.  I found a couple templates on Pinterest for a 6" x 6" OSW that made 4 cards per sheet.  This fun sunflower paper is by Graphic 45.  I used both sides of the paper and a stamp set from FSJ called Hello Lovely.


This is the flower center from the card on the right.  I used my Stardust Black gel pen on the lettering for bling.


A bit of Stardust Clear gel pen on the wings...  I added some Glaze to all bees after pictures were taken and it really made the bees pop.

I'll post the other 2 cards tomorrow if you want to come back and see them.  I plan on making a little box for the 4 cards and envelopes to possibly sell or give as a gift to someone.

Now please click on over to the Stamping Ground to get the links to all who are involved in this revealing of desks.  Some are very neat, some are very busy, and some, well, their work area may not be their desk this week.   I hope you had a great Christmas!  And, can you believe it that Friday is next year?? We usually don't go anywhere and stay home to watch movies and eat popcorn.  Hope you have a safe New Year's Eve!

Aaagghh! Valentine cards? Help. I confess to having at least four family January birthday cards before I even think about Valentine cards... I like the cards on your desk - they are great fun.
Thanks for your visit and thoughts. No, the medics can't do any more for John - other than continue to pile in the same antibiotics which are only just managing to deal with the infections but not clear them - but we are in God's hands, and He knows our future. He has given us a fantastic Christmas, during which John has got stronger and is moving around the house more - an extremely good thing for his condition!!
Take care. God bless.

I keep meaning to rejoin WOYWW, but I can never seem to figure out when Wednesday is anymore. I was ready to do it today!.... Ah, maybe next week. You must point me in the direction of the pinterest OSW templates! These cards are just as wonderful as the ones from today.
