WOYWW 195 Tale of 2 desks

 Hi everyone, Fistly I want to Thank all of you who have visited my little blog in the last week and left such lovely comments, I really do appreciate them and read them all, they mean such a lot to me.
Well, Its Wednesday again time for a snoop around the crafty desks of the world and see what everyone else is up too. Visit our host Julia and see how to join in the this very addictive weekly bit of fun. 
 I am busy with my workshops today so I took this photo last night.  I am making a birthday card for a friend (ITS NOW FINISHED SEE MY NEXT POST FOR A SNOOP)initially using a technique through the aperture from a die cut shape as shown in Craft Stamper (you can see this at the back of the desk).  I started off ok, then I got a bit carried away and ended up filling the card not just the aperture! There are 2 Indigo blu Rubber stamps I used on the card and a bag full of promarkers that are awaiting filing.  The die on the bottom is one of my new purchases and has been used to cut out the shape next to the wet wipes which is really pretty and I am going to use on another card, the die  just peeking out above the left hand distress pad is the one I have used for the card, you can see the frame (mask) on top of the promarkers which is quite nice on its own. Under the Craft Stamper you can see my workshop reminder file which is a photo album of future workshop projects so I have a reference of what I used when I come to prep them.  The red book under the frame is my step by step notes which brings me on to......
Desk number 2 -  my dining room table on Tuesday night.  I had been frantically prepping for my workshop yesterday before I started the birthday card and the elements are all laid out ready to be bagged .    Lots and lots of die-cutting and lacy bits,buttons,ribbons,flowers stamping embossing and distressing. The ladies are going to be very busy playing with all these elements whilst they make up their cards which when finished will hopefully look like these ones. 
For those eagle eyed amongst you their is one small detail missing on a sewing theme card, scissors, but there is a little gold di-cut pair that is to be added.  The card sample above however was taken before I bought the die and was up on display in the shop so I could not add it on for the photo.  Ok I will have to fly now and get on with my busy day, but I will be back later and I will try to visit as many desks as I can. Have a great day, Happy WOWW. Hugs Mo x

  13. Hi Mo,

    Wow! You've been very busy!!!

    When I go to Julia's blog I can't see the list of people that joined in. Bummer.

    Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment!

    Happy WOYWW

  14. Very busy, lots of prep for you - I pre-cut most stuff but always leave some stuff for the girls to do themselves so they get experience of the various machines on the market..but it sure slows down a class!! Lovely cards, I'm sure the workshop was a hit.

  15. You have lots going on, Maureen, and beautiful cards for showing! They are lucky ladies who will be coming to your workshop! You have put an enormous amount of time and attention to their kits. Have fun and thanks for coming by to visit me already! Darnell #34

  16. Wow you sound really busy! The cards look lovely - wish I could come!! Thanks for stoppig by, Cindy

  17. Loving the workshop cards. The spools of thread are too cute. And who doesn't love a bird in the cage. April #151

  18. oooh the cards for the workshops look fabulous and your desk is brimming with lovely things. Thanks for sharing Tracy #72

  19. Some beautiful stuff on your desk this week Mo, vibrant backgrounds and a perfect sewing themed card.

    You guessed right about the background and Flitter glue on my desk. A new (another one) purchase a few weeks ago and I have been itching to try it out. Did so today as my back is tons better, and I loved the results - but not all the mess with a metal flake storm. Made a couple of pages for a deco swap I am in and a birthday card so a very productive day today.

    Thanks for visiting yesterday - much appreciated.
