Desks, Butterflies, and Hearts

Wednesday, Wednesday, Wednesday.  Every morning just as I get up I have to remind myself what day it is so that I can remind myself what is on my agenda that day.  Today, yeah, Workdesk Wednesday!!  A day I've been doing for over a year of showing you my desk in whatever shape it's in at the time!  This is part of an international blog tour of desks put together by head desker Julia at the Stamping Ground.

I was gone all last week so my desk was lonely.  Last night I got in my Fun Stampers Journey order and the Kit of the Month but I only got the products unpacked.  Today I have a class to teach so I have to get my crate ready of the tools I need (Big Shot, dies, stamps, etc) I need so no playing until tomorrow after work.  Such a bummer!!   I WANNA PLAY!

Also today I'll show you a card I recently made for either Valentine's Day or an anniversary, or whatever.  I haven't yet stamped inside so it can go any direction.

I have some heart dies by Sizzix that I used, the mini butterfly is by Elizabeth Crafts Designs, the foliage embossing by Darice, and the text by Fun Stampers Journey.

I'm not real sure about the 4 butterflies in a row.  I was trying to get them to look like they were taking off in flight but maybe they're too much in a line.  But they're adhered down with glue dots so doubtful I can move them without destroying the paper.  Oh well!

Today I have a class to teach on "Spring Loaded Cards".  This card has a spiral or two or three inside that one adheres something to and it seems to float.  I have punched out circles of acetate for my "students" to use.  Should be fun!

Now that you've gotten to the end of my post be sure to click through to the Stamping Ground to get the links to all the other desks.  And, if you are new to this blog tour, please click on the WOYWW logo in my sidebar or Julia's blog tab for more info!

Hi Carole, I love the card and the butterflys look good to me. I think we always think we could do better but the recipient will love it I'm sure. Have a great week, Angela x 37

Your card is beautiful, but if you don't like the butterflies to form a line you can always add one or two to brak up the formation.
Thanks for your earlier visit!

Lovely card! You're right, it could be either for Valentine's or for an anniversary. I know how frustrating it is when you want to play and you can't! But here comes the weekend soon! Thanks for visiting earlier! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #27

Happy crafting and Happy WOYWW

Love how your card can be for Both VD or A till you stamp the inside. I need to start doing that more,leaving the inside blank till I need the card....
Thanks for stopping by and the kind words.
