What's On your Workdesk? Wednesday #679

Goodness, how these weeks fly! I know there will be grumbles about the temperature by the weekend but for me, two consecutive days of blue skies have lifted my spirits exponentially - long may it continue in my book!! 

Here's the desk - I have just  caught it in mid tidy so not v interesting, but I have been making boxed cards this week - more later!

First a few more of those mainly white with a splash of colour cards. Some of them are a bit random, but I am really just using up bits and making stock, not for anyone IRL. 

My preferred way of working I have discovered.

Ages ago someone gifted me a whole bundle of pretty brads, one of which were these pretty 'acrylic' roses - sadly they are really a bit too bulky to use on an envelope-destined card.   Filled with an inexplicable urge to use some of them up, I decided to make some boxed cards for sale and use them as centres for larger flowers.  

Every year in advance of my three main card selling events (a local fair, Macmillan, and the farm at Christmas) I say I will take some 'special' cards with me. But I never get around to making them. So while I had this need to used up those brads I thought I would start early. This is what I have done so far. (Bit OTT for using up a bit of stash maybe?)

So, why am I showing you my desk? Well it's our weekly Wednesday Blog Hop - WOYWW. Here's the link to the one responsible, the lovely Julia at Stamping Ground - pop on over and join in, see what it's all about and have a go yourself. 

Well that's me for this week, sorry for the long post but it's nice to have something creative to share. I have visitors today so probably won't be round till this evening or tomorrow, but have a lovely Wednesday. Keep cool!! 

Happy WOYWW!! Cindy

Oh my word what stunning cards. I love the simple background so that the artwork stands out so beautifully. The "specials" are really fab. xx Jo

Oh me oh my Cindy, using up stash really suits you, those cards are just lovely, and to have a stash of specials will really be useful at the selling points…Shopkeeper Gal tries to do the same and they/always sell out before the more regular styles. Those floral brads are just lovely anyway, not sure I’d have thought to use them as centres, they look great. Glad the sun has lifted too, it’s just the business isn’t it!

Wow Cindy, those cards are fab-u-lous! I love the style, really floats my boat. They’ll sell like hot cakes, keep up the good work!

Thanks for the visit - found your comment in my general comments section but sadly still not on actual blog???? BJ#21

BJ said...

actually your comment did appear on my blog - yippee - must have been after I looked initially. Only one missing this week so far then and not yours. I'll shut up now......BJ

Wow. Those boxed cards are fabulous - as are the "regular" ones, although they are nothing like "regular!" stunning. And PS I would check to see if you have been hacked/change your password as I have gotten a few spammy emails with you as the sender but different emails inserted.
Happy desk hop day!
