WOYWW and Quick Card

I've been good lately that I tidy my bit of working craft mat each time I finish, of course that doesn't mean that I'm not surrounded by mess. The pile on my right looks very similar to last weeks WOYWW even though I have put the stamps in a drawer.
Someone last week mentioned that they had those tags too, I had to check the picture cos I hadn't been using any tags. They got left out of one of the drawers when I was looking for scrapbooking embellishments the other week, the tags are in pristine condition and will eventually find themselves back in said drawer.

To the left another mess, the pile of stamps are all sentiments and behind them are the scraplings from making square cards can't bear to part with them but they're overtaking the space. On top of my desk tidy is coloured scraps and in the folder I try and I do mean try to keep all the green scraps in there even tiny ones cos they work for punched leaves.
I leave you with a card I made for the Less is More Circle challenge, I was going to sneak it on the challenge blog because the  flowers are not quite circles and its a bit of cheat but I decided against it cos I'm sure the ladies in charge will catch me out.
The stamps is a large Hero Arts Cling stamp  from Simon Says Stamps. I inked it first in brown and then wipes any brown of the flowers I wanted in gold. In hindsight perhaps I should of tried the other way round it might have been less stressful. The sentiment is from Hobby Art.


  1. Love the quick card Debby! Looks great!
    Hugs Kristel

  2. Ehehehe so your desk is a caos, too!! Mine everytime I decide to make something becomes a battle field, you can see punch, copic, flowers, paper everywhere!!

  3. Love the beautiful card, it's awesome and your workdesk looks like fun. It's a lot of fun looking at other's workdesks. Tee hee. Take care. Happy WOYWW!

  4. Your card is beautiful, the golds and browns go so well together, it was well worth the 'stress'. I think it would be fine for a circle challenge.

  24. Hi Debbby

    I am completely the opposite I can't bear any mess - even during a card making run I end up putting things away that I still need again..

    I am really lucky though we have a joinery shop so I had some lovely storage and furniture made for my craft room - I should take some pictures sometime.... everything has a place and most of it is behind cupboards or sand blasted glass. It's very clinical and would be too much for most but being untidy just freaks me out.
