WOYWW 140

So, it is that time of the week, where we get to sneak into people's homes and catch a glimpse at what they are working on. If you don't know what I am talking about, then head on over to Julia's and find out what it is all about.

Not much going on in here today. My desk is being used as a catchall for all of the goodies I have been buying the past couple of days. There is two kits from Scrapbook Circle that need to be put away. I found some Thickers on clearance at Michael's last night for $1.29 that I couldn't pass up. The candy is for some treat bags that I need to start working on. The glass ornaments from last week are still on my desk, along with a few extra things from my shopping trip last night. And the e-book that I printed yesterday is waiting for me to bind it. I need to clean it today and start those treat bags.


Below is the card from my self-imposed 52 card challenge. I am not sure if I like this one yet, but the more I look at it, the more that I think I do. I used some leftover paper by Echo Park from last week's layout to create the card and to stamp the sentiment on. I also punched the butterflies from another scrap. The flower is supposed to represent the sun against the cloudy background. The inside sentiment reads, "makes me smile".

Card #5


Hope you are having a good week!

Love the card, it's so vibrant and colorful! Your desk looks like my craft area at the moment...mine is probably worse. :)

Oh how fun to get a peek at your desk! And now I want to go back to my Michael's and see if any Thickers ore on clearance. Can never have too many of those. ;) And your card is adorable. Those butterflies are the perfect touch of whimsy.

I've been steering clear of Mikes and JoAnns! Way too much temptation there. I love the card you've made, really cute and bold colours too.

Cor Dani, score with the thickers, you've got five packs for the price that I paid for one last week! yikes! Your nice neat desk..even the treats are neatly arranged! I was curious that you'd printed an ebook for binding...but now I see why, it's a visual one for sure!

I hope you are having a great day. Elizabeth x #2
