WOYWW and Marion Smith Designs

Good Wednesday know that means What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, but before I share I desk, I want to share a card I made using Marion Smith Designs papers.  This collection is called Garment District.  I was lucky enough to meet Marion when she was visiting Chico and came by Paradise Scrapbook Boutique.  She and her husband are the sweetest people, anyway, last year, during the Paradise Scrapbook Boutique Anniversary Party,  I was gifted papers and instruction for an album made from the Mad Tea Party papers.  Well, I loved the papers and the album.....thanks to Deb was beautifully created.  Well, long story short....I am hooked on Marion's designs.  And I am soooo excited because she is coming to PSB in February to teach and I can not wait to see what she and Karen have planned for us....Ok, so this is what the inside of the card looks like...
I wanted to have a tag that would give lots of room for a note.  I think this fits the bill!  I'm happy with this card.  I can't wait to find a minute to start another card.....Ok, so moving on......

Last night I was trying to catch up on my blog reading, which by the way I am so far behind.  Well, I hopped over to have a look at what Mrs. A was up to.  She said she'd not been posting as she was organizing her craft room. Well, she created her first card and it is stunning.  I hope you hop over to see what she's made.

Well, that's what I've been up to.  And when I show the photo you will probably say, which item did you move?  Trust me, I've been very busy, getting rid of things I don't need, to make room for the things I do.  What started as just down sizing my papers, move to getting rid of two paper holders that never seem to get used, then it went to organizing envelopes, and then ribbon, and then Christmas embellishments, and then, and then and then!  Seems the more I organized the more messy my room became.  Until finally it was looking pretty good.  I still am trying to put 20 pounds of goods into a 2 pound bag...hmmmm!  Does this make me a hoarder?  Maybe!  Are you ready?  Here it is....
So, now that I have my room cleaned, I guess it's time to make a mess.  Before I do, I want to tell's your turn to share and after you've done so, I you'll need to head over to Julia's Place and link your share.  There you can see all of the other desks.  Trust me, you'll be glad you did!  Be sure to leave a comment.

Until next time, and I think next time will be soon, as I am going to head to my craft room and make a snippet Christmas card.  A goal for this year, 10 Christmas cards a month....let's hope I stick to it.  And I want most of them to be made from snippets.  Note, that's my goal, Di, please don't hold me to it!

Hugs from me to you,  Happy crafting!
