WOYWW #90 – the one with all the cards

Here we are again! Greetings and salutations my fellow WOYWWers! And how are we all this fine Wednesday morning?

For those random individuals who’ve landed here totally by accident or out of general curiosity, and who haven’t got a CLUE what I’m on about, please go to the dazzling Mrs Dunnit’s page HERE to get more info and start the magical mystery tour. After you’ve read my entry, of course…. LOL….. mwahahahahah….

My desk this week is looking a trifle….sad…. There’s a lonely CJ on it, still awaiting my undivided attention. Mainly because my mojo is geared towards cards at the mo, but also because the idea I have is fermenting and I REALLY don’t want to screw up the final entry into Sarah’s CJ. And a fabulous one it is too, there’s so many brilliant entries! It’s unlikely to get done until the weekend, too, but more on that at the end of this thread.

This week has been all about the cards, and I have managed to turn out three. Three fab cards for three fab ladies in my world.

First up is a card for my bud Debs who is just amazing and has had a tough year and still come out smiling. I have a problem though – I cannot, for the life of me, remember who the stamp is by. But at any rate, it’s a tree of life (came with a set that said Goddess, if anyone can help me out!) and I’ve stamped it with Versamark and used one of the Moonglow embossing powders on it. Imperial purple I think. I really ought to make a note of these! I did also use a sketch from someone other than Sketch Saturday (shock horror!) but stoopid me also failed to note down which one. So, not only can I not tell you who, I cannot enter it into their list of participants. Definitely a Doh!-head-smacking moment. Oh well.

Second card was made for my gorgeous god-daughter Steph. I hope she liked it. In case you can’t tell, Steph is a bit of an emo/goth/rock chick. Image is one of Kenny K’s fabulous creations “Star” (coloured with Copics, and I know it’s not brilliant but I can live with it), and the “You Rock” is from the Inkadinkadoo Rock Star set. Papers were a free download from somewhere, punch is MS, plus some card candy. And a peel-off. See, judicious use of peel-offs CAN be acceptable. I really like this card, and Lil' Miss B is peeved that she’s not getting it herself.

Finally, a card for my buddy Jayne. I’ve know Jayne a LOOOONGGGG time. Long enough to remember when she was like the little girl on the card. Not that she ever did Irish dancing to my knowledge, but she was definitely “perky”. She is also Irish, so I kinda got a link/relevance thing going here. ROFL. The gorgeous little girl is by Mo Manning, papers by Papermania. Best Wishes is either Papermania or Inkadinkadoo or similar. My bad, I know…. More peel-offs, more card candy, some prima flowers, a little bit of bling, and the punch is a McGill one – pine branch.

Now all I need to do is work out how to convert my PSP watermark into one I can use with Photoshop Elements. Answers on a postcard to…..

Oh, sorry, I nearly forgot to say. This is my craft room.

Say goodbye….. This week (today and tomorrow) it’s being moved. We’ve booted Lil’ Miss B out of her big bedroom, and are shoving her into this little single bedroom, to give us more space for work. It’s not a bad thing – other than costing us a load for new furniture as the double bed she’s using will have to go into the loft, and we’ve bought a Cabin bed off eBay (she’s also going to need a wardrobe, desk, chest of drawers and a bookcase…. Ouch……and we will need to buy a sofa bed for guests. But it will mean we’re not cramped and can make better use of the space. We’ll also have more natural light as the room we’re going into has a BEEEG window. Hurrah.

See you next week from the new room!

Sounds like a big mess this week and a wonderful thing next week. I bet you are going to love the new room and Miss B might even be happy, too with all new furniture. Sorry this is brief, but wanted to let you know I was here. Happy WOYWW.

Love all the cards! Your desk looks so busy! I have decided to reorganize and that has led me to decide to take over another bedroom and use my now craft room as a guest room. Good luck with the changeover!

Such beautiful cards, that I think you deserve a bigger room. Love the moonglow embossing powders.

RosC said...

Groaning here at the prospect of moving your craft room, even though it will be larger in the new one. Like the purple tree lots.

Looking forward to seeing you CJ page! Love the cards, especially the one for your friend Debs. Congratulations on your crafty move! I sleep in the smallest of bedrooms and have set up my craft room in the largest. It's all about priorities :D. TFS! #67
