WOYWW 188 and more Valentines

Ah Wednesday....   That special day when you get to see my work desk and the desks of many other papercrafters around the world.  Julia at the Stamping Ground sure came up with something when she started this long ago!  My desk is a bit empty.  Some stuff has been put away but I do need to get some things pulled for blog candy for my upcoming blogiversary.  But anyway, here's my desk.  My desk lighting is a bit wonky.   Guess I need to turn off my OTT lamp and just let the camera flash do it's work.  I did scoot the small paper scraps off the the right.  I really need to get them either tosses in "file 13" or put in the bucket that's already overflowing.

You can see the hearts I'm getting ready to cut out and the stamps that I used just to the left of my Scor-Pal. I need a bunch of Valentines to sell and mail.  This card has been posted previously so I won't show any more of it. Soon my desk will be covered with stuff I need to teach to a class this afternoon. Can't forgot more stamps, acrylic blocks, ink, whatever.

I did get a couple more Valentines made this past week. 

Only the "Laugh" is stamped.  This little boy and the pattern paper is by Authentique.  The boy is from a group of "vintage" looking images.  They are so cute!

This little hedgehog is from a set by The Angel Company.  I have HUNDREDS of stamps from the company but then, I was an independent consultant for 10 years before they closed in August of 2011.  The paper is also from TAC.  I had some bakers twine from The Twinery that matched the card base very nicely and I used the Bubbles border punch from Fiskars. 

I colored the image with Copic markers.  If you look close you'll see the hedgehog's dark fur is "mottled" and the hearts in the wagon have a shiny spot. And I put rhinestones on the wheels for that touch of bling.  I think this card will be for one of our granddaughters.  I need to make a western one for our great-grandson so will have to go digging for just the right paper.

So now that you've reached the bottom of my post please leave a comment then click on Stamping Ground and check out the other desks.  You'll see a lot of cool ideas and will be inspired!

Love the Valentines - the hedgehog is so cute - I kept him too. There are way too many TAC stamps I can't part with just yet. Don't you love your OTT light, I got one for Christmas so hopefully it will improve my coloring - LOL!!!
