Autumn Leaves and Desks, Part 2

Wednesday, Wednesday... seems like it comes faster than every 7 days when I'm taking part in the weekly What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.  Seems like it was just a couple days ago I took a picture of my desk and joined in this fun global blog hop put together by Julia at the Stamping Ground.  My desk is kinda empty as I just finished up a project for a FSJ Blog Hop this Sunday.  But there is something new and different on my desk today.


Look close...   It's in the upper right on a shelf.  Yep,  it's a little green Monster!  I'm planning on making him my mascot for my team in the company.  But on the lower left you can see my paper trimmer and a pile of stamp sets and dies from the projects I just finished.  Far right... my ATG adhesive gun.  Back left, my red Cricut and a shelf of all kinds of things, then moving right, my Copic markers then my ink pads.  I will be working on a special project today that I need for a challenge.

But I think I've also held you in suspense long enough about the Autumn Leaves.


Someone last week thought she knew what I made from last week's teaser picture.  This card is one of four that I'll be teaching in a class on October 28.  It will be a good distraction for me as that's my mom's birthday and she died just over 2 years ago.  But it's also a very busy week.  Between working that Monday and Thursday, I have a doctor appt. to schedule a colonoscopy (mom had colon cancer twice) and I have a home party Saturday afternoon.  I'll be cutting paper like a crazy woman prepping for the class and party.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my completed card.  I'll be sharing the other 3 soon.  Please head over to the Stamping Ground to get the links to all the others joining in today.

(And since I'm involved in a Blog Hop on Saturday there will be no Friday post.)

Hi Carol, first off, I really hope the colonoscopy reveals no problems, but very wise of you to be checked regularly. Card is looking good, so looks like you'll be a busy lady. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #6 xxx

Carol, I agree with Shaz, I pray your report is a good one from the colonoscopy! I love your little monster, too cute and that card is gorgeous! I love doing "leaf" projects! Have a good rest of the week. Blessings to you, Felicia #35

Happy WOYWW. I hope the colonoscopy does not show up anything to worry about. Can you take your little green monster as a mascot?! I love all autumn colours and images, so in love with your card. I wish I could come to a workshop. Ali x #10

Hi Carol, I've just popped back because you mentioned the Misti. I do like it although I've only had it a few days and I know I will use it lots however since getting it I have found the same thing by another company at half the price. I don't know if it's available where you are but this is the link if you would like to have a look. http://www.stampaddicts.com/stampers-friend-stamp-positioner-stampaddicts
