WOYWW #325


Good Morning Deskers.

Wednesday morning again when we get a chance to link up with Julia's Stamping Ground and visit work desks around the world.

I've been unable to join in for the past couple of weeks but did manage to have a little look round at some desks.

On Monday I made a card for a friend who is a keen gardener.  I posted the card on my blog on Monday then decided I would  make four similar, but slightly different cards for my charity box.

I used pages from an old gardening book, Paper Artsy stamps and a set of dies from Sizzix which arrived last Friday.  They are three gardening tools, a trowel, fork & hoe.  I cut them out from black card, added metallic rub ons to give a metallic effect and added kraft card handles.

I'm off to make a cuppa then start my visits to see what everyone else has been up to.

  8. I love the garden-cards, they look very 'brittish' to me... we Dutchies have the feeling all Brittish people are gardeners and plant roses all the time, ha! (I guess that is as much an unreal image as the idea that all Dutchies wear wooden shoes and the country is filled with windmills...) Anyway, the cards are awesome! Thanks for your comment and compliment on my blog today! Happy woyww and a hug from windy Holland, Marit #33

  13. Great little forks you have made for your cards. That is a really good idea to make copiers for charity cards - something I must adopt one of these days. Where does time go?

  16. Oh Barb, I LOVE that sentiment. Gosh, that's really struck a chord. I'm busy trying to make as many memories as I can at the moment, I feel that time is just whooshing away from me. I love the background as well. Clever you!

  20. Beautiful pages, Barb, and the garden tools are really fun! Your scratch paper, where the outlines are from the inking, could be made into a nice background too, so I hope you won't throw it out!

    Thank you for your lovely comment. I'm feeling a bit better now, and hopefully will have a few days during which I can do things before the next treatment.

    Happy WOYWW,
