My Desk Doesn't look Too Messy...does it?

See, I'm creating and it isn't too messy yet...note, yet is the key word.  I stopped to take this photo before I forgot and cleaned up.  Trust me, by the time I finish making two cards, you will not see the top of the desk.  What I'm making will go live on 9/1/2014 so, hidden under the rubber stamp is the beginning of the card.  A hint, could be a Christmas Card or two.  Another hint, could be on Sparkles Christmas Challenge. 

Nuff said.....so, what do you see?  My electric die cutter, some sticky embossing powder that is supposed to be perfect to use with gilding flakes.  I haven't used it yet, but I hope it does work as advertized.  Then there is a bag of things I cut off last years Christmas cards.  I am hoping to upcycle them at some point.  Paper pieces, paper cutter, glue, my iPad, an Iris foled star that I made several years ago, just can't part with it.  And stuff.  So now you know what's on my desk....so what's on yours? 

I am heading over to shamelessly share my work desk with the world.  I stand loud and proud.  Not because it's a mess, but because I am actually creating something!  How about you get creative and hop over to get all the how's and why's from Ms. Julia. 

Out I go to have a look around and see who is messy and who is way too neat!
Until next time....Hugs from me to you,

A Little Butterfly Note

Hello.....It's my day to post on the Poppystamps blog page.  I'll show you the front of the card.  If you want to see the inside and know how it was made, you're just going to have to check it out HERE
I hope your day is WONDERFUL and your week is SPECTACULAR!

Update:  I was just popping around the world wide web and realized I'd not visited Ms. Valery and she is one of my very favorite stops.  While checking out her site, I realize....my card would fit this challenge.  I love these summer colors, cantaloupe says summer to me and the pastel green reflects the coolness of the morning time.  If you have a summer themed butterfly card, how about entering this challenge.  There is always inspiration fluttering around.  Tell Valery I said hi!  

Happy Crafting from my world to yours...

Let It Snow.....

This month the Sparkle Christmas Challenge is Snowflakes....Thanks go out to Amy for this fun challenge.   And thanks to, to Di's Digi Downloads for sponsoring this month's challenge. 
This month the prize is a $10.00 voucher....wow! 
 It wasn't all that long ago and the snows were falling.  In some areas of the country folks were shoveling their way through daily.  Here in California we do get snow, but ours comes, stays long enough to be enjoyed and then it melts away.  Last year we had no snow and very little rain.  We are in a drought now and I think all Californian's are praying for lots of snow and lots of rain.  So, to think about snow in August, is the thought of a Celebration of the Winter  Season!  I do hope Mr. Winter is impressed with my snowflakes and sends us many of his.

My card is 6x6.  The paper is Bo Bunny, My snowflakes were made using Poppystamps, Memory Box and IO dies and  Martha Stewart punches.  The background die is from the new Poppystamps release Big Bubble Background.  The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is one of my favorite Stampabilities rubber stamps that I stamped in white ink and heat embossed it using a white pearl embossing powder. 

I hope to see lots of snowflake cards this month.  How about joining in.  It's easy, it's fun, and it's a great way to stay focused on getting those holiday cards completed.  Come see what everyone has been creating.....Here.  Until next time.....

Hugs to all,
