Work Desk Wednesday again.

Wednesday again and what's on my desk today. Well I thought I would do a spot of painting today.Need to start/finish my next card for the playing card challenge. Going to do the Ace of Diamonds. Only another 50 cards +jokers to produce but I have all yr so not panicking just yet.
Other goodies on my desk are what 'Bernie ' inticed me into buying from a very nice craft website. In the long box is a non stick craft sheet. I need that so that the Heat'n bond ultra will stop sticking to the ironing board! ! A stack of ATC's, have been cutting out my own so far and a new butterfly die cut . Also an ink blending tool to take me into the 21st century (was using kitchen roll paper crunched up into a ball). Naughty Bernie inticed me onto another site and I just had to order goodies from there too all in the name or art you understand. Will show them next time as I don't have any more room on my desk. I also have something I can't show you cos it's way too big my noo Omnigrid cutting mat. It's 18" x24" so just perfect for on the floor. 'Wipso and Twiglet' are on the naugthy step for showing off their embellisher machines.
I want one of those, I need one of those, I must have one of those. I'm off to go cry into my hankie and have a mini tantrum.
If you want to see what everyone else is up to this week head on over to Julia's blog.

You have some wonderful things to play with. I have butterfly die which I believe is no longer made. I don't think I could live without it. You may become very attached to your new butterfly die, keep it safe!!!

You might want to get that butterfly die security tagged, Sweet Cheeks has very light fingers. xxx

As the naughty step from Elf School has now returned to me, I shall go and place myself on it forthwith (and it will have to be for a very long time...)

Pleased to have led you astray. Might have to move onto a proper ink blending tool myself - kitchen roll bill would go down significantly.

A playing card challenge sounds fun; except for keeping up with 52 of anything would be quite challenging. Happy WOYWW!

I love my craft sheet! Couldn't do without it or would have glue everywhere. Your playing card project sounds really interesting! Will you post pictures?

MaggieC said...

Will you be using your playing cards for playing, or is there some other purpose for them? It sounds like a very lengthy project.
