A Desk and A Challenge

Well, it's Wednesday.  That hump day that says we're between weekends. And it's the day so many of us reveal our desks in whatever shape they're in. And this fun view of my desk and many others is put together by our head desker Julia at the Stamping Ground.  And, I was challenged by a friend to answer a challenge put on by another blogger!  So I looked around and found Tuesday Morning Sketches #429.  I used to do their sketches a year ago and I think it's about time I do it again! So, along with my desk you'll see my answer to their challenge.


This picture was taken yesterday afternoon as I just completed the challenge card.  There is some interesting things besides the card supplies I used.  In front of my red Cricut is a mug I made at a group I get together with when I can (and I did Nov. 4). It used the Envelope Punch Board.  I have seen these on Pinterest (and I do have it pinned!). In front of it is a pile of paper packages but the top one is the one I used the most, a brushed gold. (Oh, all supplies are from Fun Stampers Journey.) The little black thing is a piece of magnetic sheet for the die in the center of my white paper work space. There is also some glue dots and their box, my Bloom Tool, scissors, gold ink and ATG adhesive roller. Toward the back center are gold dots, white liner tape, 2 of our small adhesive rollers, and my OTT light. Far right are the plates to my Amaze machine.

Ok. Are you ready for my card?  First I'll share the sketch (TMS #429)...


And my card....


Does it follow the sketch? I wanted to play with gold as I usually play with silver!  I love how this turned out!  Again, all products are from Fun Stampers Journey.


And a close up of the poinsettias. I love how this turned out and today it will be in the mail to a friend as a special swap.  I'm sure she'll love it!

Ok, now you're at the end of my post.  Please check out both blogs, the Stamping Ground and Tuesday Morning Sketches, for lots more!!!

Hi Carol, I have no idea how the Pinterest thing works, not sure if it's because I'm on Pinterest, or that I have the Follow me on Pinterest widget. It appears on your pictures too- just hover over one and you'll see it appear.
Hugs, Shaz XXX

Actually, it's really nice to see something in gold as so much tends to be whites, blues and silvers this year. Pinterest is wonderful isn't it? I love getting free patterns from there, but oh my, it's a time gobbler, that's for sure!

Hi Carol. That's a great card - well done. I love working with gold - I tend to use that much more than silver.
Take care. God bless.

Oh nice job Carol, lovely take on the sketch and gorgeous colour! Niiiice. And good for you for taking on the challenge, and nailing it, frankly!
I wanna get me one of those die brush tool thingies...they must be quite good because I am starting to see them quite a lot.
