my WOWYW post

 It is time for What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, sponsored by Julia at Stamping Ground. today is #275. It has been awhile since I made it while its still Wednesday. LOL

big shot
box of boxes of die cuts. clearly labeled
cabinet doors. i love cabinet doors. covers up all the stuff. not that whats in it isnt organized, it just looks better.

Proof Today was a GOOD DAY

Inky fingers !!!

A new post OMG

Yes, beloved readers I actually have something to see.
these are merely a circle die cut and a scalloped circle die cut . combined they sorta look like flowers . these are actually a medium size. wrong scale for an A2 sized card tho. i'll show you in a few more pics
these are smaller but the same thing
these are oval die cuts and lacy oval die cuts combined
here we have a stamped rose that has been stickled and mounted on a lacy oval die cut . oops no watermark.
Sorry about the bad pic. here we have 4 dif sized scalloped cirle die cuts. i edged them to give it shadows.
here's the concept that uses the above pieces. almost as good as a stick figure drawing LOL
the piece de resistance.....the mock up. see what i mean about being off scale? its almost off scale for a a4 card. the mock up is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2

Finally A little productivity

Yes, It has been a while
You may have seen this particular card front. I added the insides today.
both inner and outer sentiments are from SU. This card is now complete.
This card front may look familiar. Even Christmas-y.
Looks like it is a Christmas Card. Even on the inside. LOL. When you make your own cards, you don't have to wait for an approaching Holiday. You can have Christmas cards in JUNE ! I love making Christmas cards any time of year
This particular card was originally made in a SU workshop. I made a few changes to
make it my own.
Its designed so you can slip a gift card in there. I added some snow flakes using an EF from Paper Studio . And of course a little sentiment.

That's enough for this post. i'll save some for the next post
