Fall Leaves.... And My Workdesk

I've been having issues with my Google Picassa where I keep my pictures so it's been a challenge to upload my desk picture.

I ended up having to upload directly from my computer files which is really weird.  Anyway, my desk. I've been working on my 3rd card (for a class) for the last few days.  Isn't that outrageous?  I finally got it started after trying about 5 different ideas but then, I have yet to do the cover and the inside easel design.  There are 2 Cheery Lynn dies, glue pen, scissors, ink pad, bone folder and some die cuts off the the right.  My Big Shot plates on the left along with paper.  I HAVE to get this done this week!  Why am I having such a brain burp? Well, now that I've kinda ranted and raved go to Julia's blog, the Stamping Ground, (but please finish my post first) and enjoy viewing a wonderful group of people showing their desks and great inspiration! I'll be heading back over there this afternoon to look around.

I did get my second of the three cards photographed a couple days ago for my Gatefold Easel card class scheduled for the end of this month. 

Again I needed a paper clip to hold the card closed.  (I'll use a slider on that 3rd card.)  The cool leaf is from a set by Inkadinkado called Fall Season.  And isn't the paper gorgeous??  I can't tell you who it's by as I cut off the label and tossed it.  Bad me.

Since I'm only got to have 3 cards for the class I thought I'd better get a bunch of fine cutting for my "students" to do to kill some time.  These cards use a lot of paper but since I'll be cutting most of it I need to stretch out the class.

How's this for the easel part?

And a touch of bling....

Wished I'd get some more mojo on the 3rd and final card, but at least it's started!  Don't forget to go to the Stamping Ground!!!!

You may not feel the mojo, but those cards have mojo written all over them. I just love the fall and the fall colors.

Thanks for the visit earlier and your kind comments, I was a bit concerned about the doyley. I managed to get a few more kits so I shall sit and fold while watching tv.
I love your fold cards, wish I could come to a card class, there aren't any by me, not even card shops so I use the web and Utube a lot.... a lot!!
