My Desk and a Card Carrier

We are having spring!  The temps have been in the low 70s F. and the sun has been shining!  Last week I planted a bunch of onions and have put out the plants I brought in for the winter.  I need to get outside more! But today I'm prepping for a class on Friday and getting ready to get together with friends to craft on Saturday. Busy busy!  Today, also, I'll be checking out some desks all over Europe and the U.S. as part of What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday put together by head desker Julia at the Stamping Ground.

This was my desk yesterday.  I had just finished a card and took it to my photo cube to get pictures.  I'll be sharing that later.  But you can see a magnetic sheet with dies on the far left,  the direction book and a die in its envelope just off the center to the left.  My work spot is clear but my tools are to the right.  And far right is a card kit sitting on my paper trimmer then my Amaze machine way to the right.  If you enlarge my picture you can see some assorted decorated Dum Dum suckers just to the right of my Cricut. I need about 6 more to send out for Easter.

I got a new die from my company a couple months ago had finally, yes finally, played with it! I will be teaching this to my team on Saturday.

I used some retired card stock since I didn't want to screw up my current stuff.  This is pretty cool! It's big enough to hold a few A2 cards.

The top is serrated and I used mini brads to attach the handles.

These are my stamped images. I added Glaze and Sparkle Dust (a prisma glitter).  I think it turned out pretty nice.  Today and tomorrow I'll be kitting some for the gals I'm meeting with. We're also working on some other projects.

I hope you head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the other desks!  There's usually some really great projects shared!

Afternoon Carol. A great bag there - well done. To be out in the garden. Wow! It's been so cold here there has not been the opportunity - then it snowed - and snowed - and snowed! Now it has gone, but the wind is still bitter. Don't think Spring has really hit the North Wales coastline quite yet!!
Take care. have fun with friends this week. God bless.
