WOYWW – 26/1/2011


Working on a tricky card today – I must say it is going better than my experiments of yesterday! You can see my little Distress Ink tools, from my Sunday-someplace-else, made with dolls house signs (actually just little wooded rectangles, but that’s what they are sold as), Cut ‘n Dry foam, a bit of sticky backed Velcro and old chess pieces – so cheap compared to the “real thing” and they work perfectly) and lots of rubbish strewn about.  What the card is all about is all hidden inside but after the Shaped slider card from last week I am into things that move so experimenting with something else – we’ll see if it works, although with the day I had yesterday, I have my doubts…

Have a happy WOYWW and pop over to Julia‘s to see what everyone has on THEIR desk – it’s fun and neat desks give you something to aspire to and messy ones make you feel virtuous, so def. WIN/WIN.
