Boy with Umbrella & more

So - I got a surprize package in the mail yesterday - HUGE thank you to Mary Ann - (Amaranthine on SCS) she sent me this stamp from Motivet, along with some other goodies!
I stamped him up with Memento Tuxedo black on PTI SSW, and colored with Copics - also I put paper glaze on the water, which you can't really see in the pic and sponged a little Gable Green around the circle. Inside I stamped "Water You Up To?" from my Kim Hughes Ocean Friends set ;) hehehe ~Card Recipe~

Saturday cards!

Well I put together quite a few cards yesterday & this morning.... these have all been in various stages of development ;) some totally fresh this week

This first one is Brent's favorite from all these..... I was thinking it is a more masculine feel. even with the Razzleberry. I also used some Core'dinations Chocolate Box cs, which I sanded. Some burgundy sheer ribbon & brown brads - Viola! ;) this card size is 6x3.5" (fits the "regular" envelope)

Here's some floraly Springy cards.... one actually Mother's Day, and the rest could fit the bill I think :)

This Geisha one, I've had this ribbon for EVAH! :) I knew I'd need it LOL

The "dream" was stamped in Rich Razzleberry on SSW then I inked over it with Pumpkin & Rust ;)

Red Riding Hood, bringing goodies for your Birthday :)

This one the image has been laying around a WHILE, even matted on the green with the Pacific Point base picked out, just didn't seem to like anything I put with it, so went simple! I did put Paper Glaze over the umbrella and all the hearts, so that's super shiny ;)

Here's the detail on that ;)

mage; ) man I love this one! :) I saw Julie use this combo with this stamp :)

Hoe you enjoyed them! I enjoyed making them :)

New Desk

OK so here's some pics of my new Desk from IKEA - I saw these drawers (especially the thin wide ones) and knew I MUST HAVE IT! ;)

I do like how the whole thing turned out and it really opened up the space to not have the hutch part of the desk

And here's some inside drawer views.... First one is the Ink ;) it's in the Wide Format drawer to the Left of the desk

Next here are three from the "leg" of the desk - this one is reinkers/stickles and I also have my sponges, but I've moved them already to the other drawer ;)

Patterned papers.... 4.5x6 and 6x6 and such small sizes

Extra Adhesives and blades, stuff that's not used ALL The TIME in the bottom drawer :)

Still working out how exactly I am going to have every thing laid out, but I think I am LOVING the ribbon situation!
Inside the wide format drawer I fit my two cropper hopper embellishment cases - I just took off the covers and now I can see my collection at a glance! no more pulling down the case, opening it and looking... I just slide open the drawer and there it is in all it's rainbow glory!! :)

hard embelishment cases (there are two layers stacked) large have bigger things and the small are brads & eyelets, sorted by color of course !
well hope you enjoyed looking at my new desk! :)


Curtain Call #24

OK, so here's my take on the Curtain Call-Act 24 Challenge for this week. This is a weekly color challenge and this week's is So Saffron, Kraft, Whisper White, Garden Green & Tempting Turquoise. I struggled a little to use all these color together and I am so not a big fan of Kraft, but luckily I did have one 1/4 sheet LOL! I also inked the image panel with Tempting Turquioise and Garden Green at the bottom.

Hope you like it!
