WOYWW 74

Welcome back to another lovely installment of What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday! I still love doing this because I am so sloth-like and slow at making cards.... I feel disappointed that I don't have something new to show off everyday, like I haven't accomplished anything. Well I haven't done much more this past few days that straighten up and put away all my halloween supplies and oh yeah and it is very cold here in the northeast so I have taken to hibernating in my snuggie every night afterwork. It has sleeves though so I don't really have an excuse for not making a card... So I have made a pact with myself to make sure that every tuesday night I set about starting a card and taking a picture of my desk so I can play along with WOYWW. Then hopefully your lovely comments will encourage me to actually finish the card.

Above you will see that yes- I have a fully colored image ( I actually have many neatly filed away in a folder). I don't really understand what possessed me to color her outfit orange and blue...and give her green eyes...but I did. So finding paper to match this was a bit of a stretch. As you can see I did come up with some, now I have to decide on a layout...which is always the most difficult part for me. I think I will use the Wednesday sketch on splitcoast stampers just so I don't have to design my own layout. What can I say, you all knew I was a lazy stamper. Love to color...hate to actually make the card! At least the challenge this week over at Kenny K Krafty Girlz challenge is 'Anything Goes'! Can't go wrong with that.

  1. Oh wow, the colouring on your stamp is so fantastic! And it looks like you managed to find the perfect matching papers to make a card with the stamp.
    And don't feel disappointed about not making a card everyday, you are creative and talented at whatever pace you go!
    Happy WOYWW !
