WOYWW 177

Oh my goodness...surely it hasn't been a week already!

My desk is still covered with teensy, weensy, fussy cut, bits and bobs of gardening themed papers. I am proud to say that there are not quite so many of them as there were last week!

Somehow, I have managed to finish up 3 cards and almost have a 4th one ready to glue. There are a zillion scraps of other diecuts etc but I am not bothering to clean them up till I have 2 more gardening cards finished!!! Hopefully, I get some time again tomorrow to do just that

This was a good project to regain my mojo...I finally have a few card ideas racing around in my brain...anxious to be put to the test with cardstock and designer paper. I've got to get them made as they will all be bumping into each other soon...My brain is not all that big, you know!

I think I have won a Scrappymo! record for this being my shortest WOYWW post ever:) Julia will be proud of me for following the rules. If you are wondering what I am rambling on about, check out Julia's blog  http://stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/ and see just what all the other creative crafters have on their workdesks too!l

ooooh, that looks like fun!

Tracy said...

Your card is beautiful.
It is such a nice feeling to get some projects completed.
I think you should write down your ideas, I think I have forgotten more then I can remember, and still I don't write them down because most of them come to me when I am about to fall asleep.

Love your desk this week, Mo! All those gorgeous little scraps of fabulous colour! Also the framed pieces behind - beautiful, and all those fabby little drawers full of goodies. A real feast for the eyes, and a wonderfully busy, productive desk.

Thanks for your visit, and your nice comment. Apparently I was linked to the wrong WOYWW, but Julia has fixed it, so if you want to pop back you can see what I've been up to this week, and also the subsequent post with the completed page.

Happy WOYWW,

As pretty as those cards are I still can't believe how much fussy cutting you did for them! I wouldn't have lasted half an hour. No doubt my productivity will go down once hubby is home as I'll actually have someone to talk to in the evenings now!!

Daniella said...

I love those cards!! They are super sweet!!
And you are super sweet too, for giving me so many ideas for my pumpkin! You know, I have 2 small gourds and a small green glittery pumpkin that I was going to add on top, but quit while I was ahead! Maybe I will put them in. The gourds go out the sides....hmm.....
Thanks again! You are awesome!

I always wonder how you card makers really do come up with your wonderful ideas! I love the gardening papers so much. Thanks for visiting me--I'm waving my magic wand in your direction so you'll get plenty more creative inspiration! Hugs! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #13

While your diecuts are gorgeous, it was the clear boxes full of lovely bits in the background that caught my eye. I love it when stuff is sorted out by colour - it satisfies my OCD tendencies, LOL!!

Gorgeous cards and so pleased Mr Mojo has returned. Yes, piccalilli is a yellow coloured relish - but despite having all the windows open (on a chilly Autumn day) the house still smells like a pickle factory :(

Happy WOYWW!!

Sorry you had so much trouble getting the freebie. I'm not sure why, other people have been getting them ok. If you e-mail me at alamom@rocketmail.com and let me know which one you want I'll just e-mail it to you. Sorry again for the trouble and thanks for letting me know about the issue. Have a great day!

Belinda said...

Oh I want reach in my screen and grab a few of those goodies on your desk. So cute with endless possibilities.

Which reminds me, another summer season in my garden gone and I didn't scrap any of it. I take the pictures but never sit down to document the beauties.

I hope you have a blessed week. See you next week.

Barb King said...

Glad you got your creative mojo going again, looks like you are going to get lots accomplished. Thanks for your kind comments about my sledding ornaments, I agree with you, every kid should feel the joy of flying down a hill over the snow. Sad how some kids never even get out to play outside....
Have a crafty week. Barb

Bridget Larsen said...

Heather said...

Good for you! You are making great progress. Thanks for the kind words on my photo albums. I am a year behind (or more) in our family albums but they take a lot longer than the school ones do. I do chronological as well.

butterfly said...

Beautiful die-cuts everywhere, and your card looks an absolute delight. Gorgeous layouts up at the back there too - hurrah for the return of the Mojo!!

Paula Gale said...

Snap!

I think I have also broken my own record for the shortest post ever. I don't do short!

Glad you have regained your mojo. Sometimes the oddest or smallest thing can burn that flame again - lets hope it doesn't blow out anytime soon.

Oh, the image you saw on my desk (the coloured in one that is a Tiddly Inks digi)... it is now a card so I'll be blogging that soon to enter it into a few challenges (If i'm not too late).

Carry in crafting (not sure that ever was a film - but can you imagine what it would be like if it was) Barbara would get lots of paper bits stuck and Sid James would be going to crops and lusting after all the lady crafters) lol.

Happy WOYWW

I have an idea, instead of cleaning up, just sweep all those die cuts in an envelope and send them to me! lol, just teasing! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Laura said...

Love the bright and cheerful cards! Good for you using up scraps and fussy cutting. I like the results, but not doing the work, but I've been in that mode myself lately. Happy Wednesday, happy crafting, and thanks for visiting me already! ~Laura #155

Great that you have your mojo back, nothing worse than losing that. I really love those gardening cards. That wheelbarrow is so cute and the flowers are gorgeous. It's spring here so they are perfect for this end of the world :)
Have a great week.

VonnyK said...

Just doing an extra comment as the last comment disappeared before I hit publish. I guess it is doing the rounds of the blogasphere.

I'm glad you got your mojo back, nothing worse than losing that.
I really love your gardeny cards, especially the wheelbarrow and gorgeous flowers. It's spring at this end of the world and they are perfect.

Have a great week.

Ha! Julia probably cringes when she pops into my blog...I can be somewhat chatty too! Seems you are steamrolling right ahead...and finishing up unfinished projects as well...your snowflake card about turned out quiet festive!!! ♥ Sue Kment

Shoshi said...

Thanks for your second visit, Mo, after Julia fixed the wonky link! Glad you enjoyed seeing the progress of my art journal page. If you go back again, your wish will be granted and you can see the completed tyger page in my next post.

Your cards are adorable. I love the corrugated paper. I also like your spring garden framed layout in the background. Thanks for visiting my blog too. Have a great week. LisaDV #164

SandyD said...

Thanks for stopping by. Your worktop looked very interesting. The poinsettia die I used is The Layered poinsettia made by Spellbinders Shapeabilities which has 4 different sized leaves which enables you to be more flexible. I used it to make a holly leaf wreath by cutting it up. Will try and put that pic on my blog. Sandy Dallas

Sandy said...

Love your garden cards they are so pretty. I really like all the little letter boxes that I spy on there, so cute. Thanks for visiting me already I did get to use that new stamp set today and have a bit a crafty fun. Sandy :)

Beautiful work, Maureen, and so nice to see you back at it! Julia WILL be proud of you; I know I'm always on her "naughty" list and need to get my wrist slapped for talking too much ...!

G'day Maureen,
Thank you for visiting me. Love the idea of bundling gift cards with raffia.
Your cards are really lovely, and I would love to tease out all the die-cuts in a pile there. They look gorgeous. Your storage drawers in clear plastic are a hit too.
Take care,
Ros. #165
