What's On Your Workdesk, Week 166

Well, it's Wednesday!  Not only is it "hump" day but you get the opportunity to take a look at my work desk and other's through a huge blog hop sponsored by Julia at the Stamping Ground!  Are you ready?

I've been playing with a technique from my newest Technique Junkies newsletter!  You can see the newsletter just to the left of the card with a set of stamps sitting on it. If you chose to join us Junkies please let Pat know you heard of her newsletter from me, Carol Norby (thanks). Now, wanna see the card?

I used a stamp set from Red Rubber Designs called Nothing Is Better. Twine from The Twinery. Border punch by Fiskars and scalloped ovals by Spellbinders.  I did a minor adjustment after taking the photos of the card by coloring the leaves with a light green Copic marker.

There is some cool little texture stuff called Mini Mosaics by Suze Weinberg in the center of the flower.  Really added to the card.  This card will be sent to my swap partner in the Technique Junkies 1 on 1 swap that I participate in monthly.

We had one heck of a lightening/thunder storm last night.  Lasted for about an hour. Not much for rain but the thunder had the house shakin'. Kept us both awake but no close lightening strikes, thank you God!

Your card came out looking great! I need to do more experimenting with my crafts.

Yesterday was my blog anniversary - candy will be announced soon. As part of the candy I'm offering up something made by me -- so come visit and cast your vote (if you've already been - thank you. I'm trying to visit everyone this week so haven't checked in on my comments lately).

Wow, pretty card. I do like the mini mosiacs. I have a sunflower stamp that would look good using that. Keep up the good work. I enjoy looking at your creations. I don't always comment,mostly because I don't have time.
