Tweet, tweet! What's on your workdesk Wednesday 144?!

It's that time again and it's what's on your work desk Wednesday?

First my next card from the demo at the weekend.  I had lots of fun making this one. 

I am liking this style of making up your own scenes just now.


For this card I first hand drew some clouds on paper and attached them to my white card with low tack tape.  I then created the sky using Stormy sky distress ink removing my cloud masks when finished.  The Marion Emberson stamps are from the PI sets Birds and trees plus Build a tree and the sentiment is from Find joy in everyday.  I created a stencil with the tree stamp so I could colour the green without marking the sky and used Distress inks Peeled paint and Crushed olive.  I also used the same two greens for the grass with a stamp from the Birthday kisses stamp set.  The frame was cut and 3d foamed over the image and a Spellbinder shapeabilities fancy tag was added with a sentiment also from Find joy stamp set.  Phew!
It is much easier just to show you how to rather than try and write out basic instructions, LOL.  :)

Now on to the fun bit and my desk...what state is it this week...no better I'm afraid...


Still in the process of unpacking after the busy weekend crafting.  Distress inks waiting to go away as is my heat gun.  Samples waiting to be completed and sent off to my line manager. 
I also have a few big family birthdays over the next week so really should be cracking on with some personal cards.

Why not pop on over to Julia's blog to see what other like minded crafters are up to.  Every week I promise I will go along and check out lots of other blogs, I tend to start with folk who leave comments with me and work back...one of these days I will get around everyone.
Enough waffle from me....have a great Wednesday whatever you are up to.
I'm away to be a "lady wot lunches!" 
Then I must get back and crack on with some more cards....housework?!  What's that?

Wonderful crafty visit with you. I love that you try to explain how you "did things".
I have been cutting and pasting all these little directions from you and some others, to help guide me in cardmaking.
Although I have scrapbooked for 10 years I just got into cardmaking. I haven't taken a course although i perhaps should!!!
I can't post most of my scrapbook layouts on my blog as everyone in my immediate family is anal about not posting their pictures.

There are only so many layouts you can do of the garden etc!

Have a great week Erika...the card is just great.
