What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday - 71

This week just flew by.  I have the remnants of my Playing with Serenade by Flowerdisco and Friends contribution for this week left on the table along with my acrylic blocks and some rubberstamps from my ongoing stamp book projects. I have one page set aside solely for Eiffel Tower stamps. I'd have a gnome page, but I only have one very small gnome stamp, so it would look a bit lost. I've been saving my new Tim Holtz rosette die for an incentive for finishing a few things. So after I write up my instructions for my "Take THAT Cancer" easel card, I get to make rosettes :D. I'll have a full post on it sometime, but it seemed like I should show you all since there's been hints and bits of it for a couple of weeks now.

This is the card I've been working on finally finished (see why I needed to find that foil?). Lots of stickles, pearl ex powder, foil and triple thick glaze. I'm thinking of entering it in the Woman Warrior contest. I was tickled pink that it really seemed to bright the recipient's day. All the cuts and lettering are made with my Cricut Superman cartridge.

I'm trying to tweak just a little bit more length out of the coffin boxes, then I have an order for 12 to put together. *tutting at myself* I almost forgot to say if you are wondering what WOYWW is, or you'd like to see more head over to Julia's blog at Stamping Ground.

Wow! The card really pops. The 3D effect of the word "ZAP" is cool. Very cool. Now I am inspired to experiment more project with my cricut too. Thanks for visiting my desk! I am also a Effiel Tower fan and hope to visit it soon. Happy WOYWW!

LOL - thanks for swinging by! The sign says "A dragon is for life, not just for Christmas." It's a bit of a cheap and nasty printed and laminated sign, and I intend to do my own artsy one at some point. I also need to do a outdoor-friendly one that says "Beware of the Snapdragons" ROFLMAO

Nancy said...

I love this card - how the elements "pop" as well as the wonderful message it conveys! I'm glad you entered it in the Warrior Women Flickr group.

Thank you for commenting on my blog thru the Warrior Women blog hop - I so enjoy meeting new people!

We curently have 2 dear ones being treated and I would really like to 'borrow# your basic idea please? ALso - yes! definitely enter the WArrior Woman..definitely.

Ohhh Snap said...

Borrow away as needed to fight or defend. I really liked this image from the Cricut Superman cartridge because of the force field image around the Icon. I posted directions in the Take THAT Cancer! post yesterday.:D.
