WOYWW #215

A quick phone update from me today so excuse the smaller pics.. Exhausted after a session at the gym and getting the laptop out is a little too much effort!

So what's on my work desk today... Of course mid-project! ... I have started stripping and putting back together my clock, which I have decided will be my magnolia special with a few flowers and quotes, I've started to colour a few of the stamps up ready to alter the clock, the clock background has been changed already from a purple butterfly... But I'll show some before and afters's once it's finished

Also if you cast your eye to the gorgeous pink paper of joy I have some gorgeous new stash! A shopping trip at The Ribbon Girl produced some new ribbon, flowers, pins, pearls. Lace... Oh it's just gorgeous stuff and can't wait to make use of them :)

I have also added a pic of the other side of my workdesk, which contains my melt pot, heat gun, glue gun... It's a rather hot area! lol and my smash book which finally I have some ideas for... Hoping for some crafting at the weekend, however I am also doing a SKYDIVE for charity on Sunday so crafting may not be the main thing on my mind this week lol

Hope you enjoyed my workdesk view, off to spy on some others :)

A quick wizz by to share my workdesk! after my describing last weeks desk as messy, and then seeing some actual messy desks, ive decided to not ever use the word again lol

however I wish I had taken a picture Sunday while I was mid-creation through my new magnolia card, it was a justified mess but i was quite conscious of the fact it was messy, i left it there because i was still working on a card but as I sat downstairs i was itching at the fact my room was a mess! so i have come to the conclusion i might be a bit weird lol i dont much like mess! i promptly went and tidied it up.... i cant be the only crafter to do this?

Anyway, not a mess but projects in mind, not started yet, My recent magnolia creation which can be found HERE... my new smash book ready for covering, have some fab ideas for this involving some of my new stamps also found on the desk, some magnolias, and The greeting Farm... a few cut frames for another magnolia card i have in mind, look forward to a spot of weekend crafting :)

off to check out some other desks, have fun all!

Magnolia has my heart!

Hey bloggers - im happy ot be blogging about my fave topic today: Magnolia!

Ive been a secret Magnolia fiend for years, i had a gorgeous collection once, im so pleased to pull them back out again, i recently had two of the newer stamps and im awaiting two more to arrive in the mail... i cant promise i'll stop at two more either lol

anyway, this card took its own transformation... it began as a stamped image on a die-cut and slowly developed into this little creation, I dont know why but i really wanted a fence lol and then once i added the fence the tree had to come next, and then, well - here it is!

I coloured the gorgeous Tilda with my ProMarkers. cut the fence, tree, leaves, cloud, apple and bird with my portrait and then got to sponging on some distress ink and coloured with my markers

I stickled Tilda to within an inch of her life lol, i felt her wings needed some glitter, and then of course her pretty shoes.... and then i couldn't miss her headband... or flower, or dress... so boy does she sparkle!!

The flowers along with the beautiful butterfly charm is from The Ribbon Girl
I added some lace and flowers from my stash and just happened to have the perfect card to back it all on, for a 'grass' and 'sky' scene. i wanted a tad bit of dimension to the card so i used some foam pads for the fence, and some of the branches on the tree, also with tilda and the fallen apple :)

Anyway heres a few more pics

I'll be entering this card to the following challenges
Addicted to Stamps and more - make your mark
As You Like it - fave3 embelishments (stickles, flowers + metal butterfly)
I Love promarkers - Photo

. im still debating weather to enter it into the Marvelous Magnolia DT call.. i have another card idea with another lovely Tilda in my head so might see if that comes out better

comments always welcome! hope your all having a great monday!

WOYWW #213

Hey bloggers, ive caved and thought it would be a good idea to play along with WOYWW (Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday) - taken inspiration from Fi over at Staring At The Sea
Also felt as i mainly blog at the weekend (just cause that's when i craft the most)  it'll be a good excuse to post a few things mid-week.
Alas i have some projects in the pipeline especially with my new arrivals:

My workdesk today is a bit messy because ive just dumped some new toys on there ready for the weekend, a haul of new markers and two new Magnolia stamps, one is Tilda with ballet shoes and seriously cute! I do love a good magnolia stamp!

Im also awaiting arrival of a new (and first) Smash book which i caved and ordered right before i was aware of a Stampin up!style smash book called This and That (sorry Fi) check it our for a cheaper alternative guys

Ive taken huge inspiration from Krys and her book - its so amazing! click her name to see it!

So thats my mess - a tidy up and some serious crafting will take place this weekend fo shaw! (my attempt at being all cool and stuff lol)

Happy Hump-Day everyone!
