Workdesk Wednesday... Oh my!

I decided to take part in this international blog hop today.  My desk is rather busy...

Let's see....  Tonic paper trimmer in the middle,  card kits to the left, sheets of green card stock to the right, flamingo tape dispenser to the far right.  Yep that's the mess! My class today got canceled so I'm needing to make kits for those who requested them plus an extra to sell.  The green paper is to use to die cut some Cheery Lynn flourish dies as what I planned on using was too thick and wasn't cutting through.  I even talked to Mike at DiecutCentral (made the Cheery Lynn dies) and he couldn't get them to work in his Wizard either so I now have a Big Shot on order.  I'm looking forward to it coming in as I just purchased a French Lattice and Chicken Wire dies along with some little corner dies and my poor Wizard just WON'T work on the intricate dies.  Bummer.

Here's another gate fold card.  It's a traditional style.  I had to use the paper clip to hold it closed for the photo.  The stamped image is by Nina Brackett. (In fact, she is using a stamp from this set on her first card on her blog today!) I purchased this set through Layers of Color which has closed this past year.  Paper is from a pack I got through Memory Works.  I colored with Copics.

Here's a closer look at the flower.  I need to practice a bit more with my coloring....

And the opening.  You can see a bit of the inside.

So, now that you've seen my desk and a card please leave me a comment and go on to Julia's blog, the Stamping Ground.  She has over 100 bloggers showing their desks today.  I did remove the Word Verification but I'm getting about 20 pornographic and spam messages daily.  So disgusting.  I am moderating all comments as I don't want you to read these disgusting messages. (In fact, I hate reading them but must as some of my comments are legitimate from Anonymous.)

Lovely busy desk Carol and very pretty card. Shame about the dies not working in the Wizard but at least you get a shiny new craft tool out of it! Thanks for popping by already.
