My Desk and a Foxy Card

I've been able to spend a bit of time at my desk this past week as I took in a Live YouTube Video party through the company I'm with and make 4 cards that were in the Registration box.  It was a HOOT! Four hours of demos and fun antics. So now I need to get a bit more serious as today you get to see what my desk looked like yesterday afternoon as I worked on a card sample for my August class.  And my desk view and many more are linked together by our head desker, Julia at the Stamping Ground.  Please head over to her place at the end of my place....

So what is going on here?  Far left front are the dies I used to add details to my card that is sitting front and center.  Between them are stamps. And far right front, packages of paper, some scraps, my Platinum machine, my ATG adhesive runner.  All across the back of my desk you'll find my Scan N Cut 2, acrylic blocks in a red container, 2 baskets full of liquid goodies, ink pads, and who knows what!

But this week we had to replace my ceiling light.  It has been burning out light bulbs at the rate of 1 a month (2 in the fixture so both were being replace frequently!) lately.  I've been using cool LED bulbs and the cost of replacing them this frequently is mounting.

The 1 bulb is putting out way more light than the 2 in the enclosed fixture that we replaced.  So much nicer.

This is one of the cards from our FSJ Live party that was in the registration box.  Cute stamps.

I stamped the fox and acorn using 2 different inks.  Different.  I will be playing with this stamp set more later. (All products by Fun Stampers Journey.)

Now my post has reached its end.  I hope you head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the links to lots more desks and oodles of great projects!

Hi Carol, I think I may end up replacing the light fitting in my room- seeing the flicker the camera picks up is annoying, to say the least.Awesome card too. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #4 XxX

glad you have solved your lighting problem; nothing worse than bulbs that blow all the time. Have a great week Helen #1

Sorry I'm late replying - been to Winchester to clear out my son's uni flat, visiting Julia en route! I'm so glad you had such a good time with he online party, it sounds very productive. Hopefully you'll have good results with your August class too! That was a good move replacing the light, I couldn't work without a decent light source now, aging eyes and all that!
Hugs LLJ 8 xx
