WOYWW 9-30-15

Here is what I've been working on this week. I decided that I will do some scrapbooking on Sunday afternoons. I've been so busy with cardmaking than I have neglected my scrapping! I got married 4 1/2 years ago and still have barely begun our album.

Well, you can't scrap without pictures. I had problems with my printer on Sunday, so I only got as far as editing and printing out the photos. Oh, well.

I read a great tip somewhere about using the extra ink on stamps to decorate tags, so I have a couple of those on my desk too.

Thanks for the visit! Head on over to stamping to check out some more talented people from WOYWW!

Birthday Card for One Year Old Girl

Here is the card that I made from the materials I had last Wednesday. I placed two patterned papers on white cardstock and placed a button made of varying degrees of pink cardstock, using die cuts of scalloped circles. I traced the number one from a sticker and colored it in with a bronze gel pen. The tag was stamped with the sentiment Happy Birthday with bronze ink. Then I placed two gold rhinestones on the bottom and top of the patterned papers. I love how the rainbow patterned paper complements the pink plaid paper. Hope you enjoy my card!

WOYWW 9-23-15

I joined a link party called WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?). (What's the fun of having a blog if you can't play with it?) This is my workdesk today. I'm working on a card for another granddaughter who is turning one soon - and whose party is on Saturday!. As you can see, it will have quite a bit of pink in it. I'll post a picture of it when I'm finished.

The pile of papers on the right are things I need to file - soon. My craft area is also my office and writing retreat. While I would love to have a separate room for each,
that is just not going to work right now!

Cute Birthday Card for Little Girl

Here's a cute little birthday card that I made for one of my granddaughters who was celebrating her first birthday. Three white ovals with the stamped sentiment (Happy Birthday) are set on top of lilac ovals, positioned on a pink and lavender plaid panel. Pink and purple embellishments adorn the corners. Inside, a white panel set on lavender is blank for a personalized message. The card is 5 1/2" x 7 3/4". Now, off to make two more birthday cards for two more granddaughters! Whew, my family keeps me busy!

'Tis the Season!
