It is Wednesday and I've been busy....

What Is On Your Workdesk?  Julia's desk is looking way too tidy....what's with that Julia?  It does feel good doesn't it?  Check out Julia's desk, and then hop around the world to see what everyone else is doing.  Grab your jumper and here we go....

So here's my desk.  Not too exciting, but I have to tell you I've had a VERY productive week.
April is a busy month for girlfriend birthdays.  three of my very favorite girls are within days of one another.  So,  Happy Birthday Dee Dee, Mary Jane and Brenda.  May we spend many, many more years with our fingers in glue, glitter, paper and ribbon.  I made the first card and I love, love, loved it.  Normally, I would not dream of making another the same way, but I was smitten by the first card, and so another and another were born.  The card stock is old and I'm not sure when or where I purchased it.  It did make  a beautiful card (if I do say so myself).
Of course there are Memory Box and Spellbinder dies, and Martha's Glitter gave lots of sparkle.  Ribbon and flower are from PSB, and the butterflies are also from Miss Martha.  Again, Happy Birthday Ladies!

As you know, I've been coloring with my Spectrum Noir pens.  Today I decided the images really needed to be placed onto cards.  So....here's what I did....
I planned on saving these Christmas cards for Rudoloph Day, but then that would be cheating, or would it be?  Ok, truth be known, I'm not good at keeping a secret, so now you know why you're seeing these....
and here's the inside
And this is my favorite.  I love snowmen and this is one of my very favorite rubber stamps.
And another inside...
And last, but most certainly not least....Meet Avery.  He made his grand appearance 4-9-2013.  My sister Becky is a very proud Grandma.  Congrats to Mom and Dad and Big Brother Rowan.
I'm about to shut my computer down and pack my bags for a day of card making.

Hugs to all,
Mary AKA:  Glitter Grammy

  4. Your cards are lovely. We often remake our favourite cards, then we have to try not to send a repeat card to the recipient the next year!!

  18. I can certainly see why you wanted to replicate your birthday card. It is absolutely lovely. I especially liked the technique of adhering design paper inside the white diecut. Very nice touch..that! And bringing it forward with the little butterfly. Loved all the other cards too, and the way you decorated the insides. Another nice touch, and one I'll CASE! An adorable little angel to round off all, and all-in-all, a wonderful, enjoyable post. Thanks for sharing. Bet you're counting down until your adventure, right? I would be! Hugs
