Playing with Serenade by Flowerdisco and Friends - Week 3

Hello everyone! It's week 3 of Playing with Serenade by Flowerdisco and Friends.

This week I did a simple card with image no. 21. I got to use more scraps for the image (mostly K&Co.), and used all 4 layers. The card is an A2 made from Papertrey Ink's Spring Moss cardstock which I had stamped with a stamp from the Four of a Kind stamp set (it really is a favorite) using Versamark.

 Be sure to check out what everyone else made!

What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday

Okay, this is chaotic, even for me lol. Out of deference to those with delicate sensibilities, I've kept the picture smaller. Of course if you want to see it up close, you can just click on it. The remote is for my CD player. At the moment I'm listening to an audio book. I'm still sad I finished The Graveyard by Neil Gaiman, but didn't want to listen to it twice back to back lol.

About the pink mystery paint last week, the color was an unintended red herring.  It's chalkboard paint. But... I forgot to buy regular chalk so I could test it out in a card setting.  And I spent the last two days mostly looking for my Martha Stewart foils and getting distracted by all the other things I found instead (see picture above lol), so that project got put on a back burner.

I also moved a lovely box with little shelves off one desk to another space close enough to put heavily stickled items safely away from the perils of gravity or forgetfulness. I was reminded to do this by my stickles chart with the three smooshed lines (icicle, crystal and diamond) where I dropped my pen when I was taking the cap off.  Did I mention Grace is one of my nicknames?  The chart is really handy for deciding which "clear" stickles to use and what they all look like out of the bottle.

In the Cricut realm of  my existence this week, I've been using my Superman cartridge a lot. Only with a twist, that I can't show it to you yet.  You can see my test boxes (the grey ones) from the Happy Hauntings cartridge. After I figure out all the bits, I'll make them in Lovely Halloween colors. I love the takeout box with the hand coming out of the graveyard, but I think it needs to be cut from a stiffer cardstock as the hand is very floppy after it goes through the slot!

It's also week three of Playing with Serenade by Flowerdisco and Friends which is in a separate post after this one, should you care to check it out. Thanks for looking!

WOYWW is a blog hop hosted by Julia at The Stamping Ground, and this, I believe, is week 69. So hop over if you want to see how more crafty people house work and join in  :D.
