More Prepping for Convention at My Desk

We're having some fabulous weather here in AZ.  The temperature is in the low to mid 80's F, a nice comfy temperature.  Sun is shining.  Light breeze.  Just can't get any better.  And today we're enjoying the global blog tour of desks put together by Julia at the Stamping Ground.  The tour is coming up on its 6th year!!  Amazing!  If this is new to you please click on the WOYWW logo in my side bar or at a button at the top of the Stamping Ground  to learn more and how to join in.  Now on to my desk....

I have the start of my "Fancy Fold" swap cards started.  I doing a side step style card which is the beautiful blue cut pieces to the left.  The stamps I'm using are next to them and I'm stamping the pieces which will go across the bottom using matching blue ink.

Here's a photo of the main image I'll be using...

Again, stamped with the same blue ink.  I'll add some text in the bottle then glaze to look like glass.  At least, that's my plan so far.  I also just got my FSJ "Kit of the Month" and the flower set that came in it is FAB!!  Gotta play with that, now, too!  Gorgeous lillies!  Maybe I"ll have a card or two made for next week's blog tour....

Now you're at the end of my post.  Please pop over to the Stamping Ground and tour the wide world of desks.... and fascinating projects!  Bon voyage!

Carole! surely mid 80s is hot!
We just don't get weather like that in the UK, you could cook in that temperature. My little English body would never cope with it though I would love to visit, just have to hope Lol! Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 23

I've never tried any fancy folds on my cards... I'm still satisfied with ready made card blanks, but perhaps the day will come! Our weather is awful: April showers turned to May showers, but at least the rain is getting the trees shooting tiny mouse ear size leaves.
Happy woyww!
