So, Whats on your Workdesk this Wednesday? Well, this is probably my most colourful desk for a while! It's a little bit like confetti exploded all over my desk!!
The reason is I have been spending this year trying to use up my stash. Lets be honest, many of us have TOO much. So if I do go to a craft fair or shop I am really stringent on what I buy. I take a list (as there are times I need to replace often used stock such as glue, varnish, card blanks etc) and sometimes a new bit of stash can be a good thing (so long as you think about it and its not a rash purchase!!). The last few shows I have been to I have stuck to my list and could carry my purchases in one bag...and not a massive bag either!!
So, when on Pinterest (my free housework distraction) I noticed some boards where people were using punches to make different things. Last week I used my circular and scallop punch to make sheep and pigs (in my last WOYWW post, and the card I cannot show quite yet as its not been opened by the recipient) and I noticed that a lot of people 'pinned' the Stampin' Up Owl punch and fellow coven member Bex has one so I borrowed it and spent the past few days punching out various colours and shapes. When they are all assembled I promise to share them.
I have made reindeer, bats these above are PAC MAN! These were not on Pinterest but as a massive fan (I was lucky enough to have the handheld game in the 80's....see, handheld games are not a new thing!) I was sat there looking at my coloured card when it suddenly dawned on me they looked like the ghosts in the game! Men's cards are always difficult but I reckon theses will go down a storm.
My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are 'Hero Nurse Shoots dead Mob Boss"...oooh!
So, if you'd like a legal snoop at desks across the globe then pop over to Julia's blog (link over on the right) and show your desks in all their glory!!
