Challenges (again) and WOYWW 70

The first card was for a Unity color challenge. I think I actually used all the colors since they were all fall related. I got Little Owl in the August '10 KOTM and used him a lot. I thought once the next kit came I'd be able to put him away but he still wants to play! He wants in on the candy corn so he thought of the easiest costume he could make: a pumpkin on the top of his head. I made him a little trick or treat bag from lunch bag paper and one of the cute little pumpkins on the tree.

The second card challenge was to create a birthday card so I thought candy apples would be nice for my sister-in-law's autumn birthday. The glossy accents on the apples add a nice effect!

My workspace. Don't have a heart attack. This is what it looked like before I went to bed last night. When I finish a card, I take a picture of it and then run upstairs to the computer to upload it to SCS. I take a sampling of the supplies I used in order to jog my memory when I'm listing everything with the upload. So...when I'm done with that I just bring it all back down and put it on my desk for sorting. Believe me, before I started on my next card, I had sorted things and had a nice 12"x12" space to conduct my business, hee hee.

A few things you see: the Lacey Squares die from Spellbinders that I used to make my baby card in the previous post; Stampin Up markers; Hodgepodge Hardware in the blue SU box; ribbon sets from SU; rolled up ribbons, button sets and lots of Die-namics dies from a recent order from My Favorite Things.

Thanks for looking. I'm hoping to keep adding to this post as I complete more challenges today so bookmark me and check back! Supplies are listed on my SCS Gallery.

Thanks and have a nice WOYWW!

Ooh, I could get lost on your desk...I love it, so many interesting things going on. I am a bit of a neat freak so it is great to see what I should be aspiring to. Thanks so much for letting me have a nosey around your desk, you are welcome to have a look at mine too if you like.

That is a lot of memory on that desk :>) I was surprised to see what those nestables do. They must be dies. I never knew what they were for before. That's what I love about this blog hop. I learn So much art related stuff here. Happy belated WOYWW from #2.

Elizabeth said...

Thanks for sharing your desk - that's a lot of stuff to tidy away but it all looks like stuff that is necessary for a creative mind:) Elizabeth #87

Ha! No heart attack here - too busy looking at all the stuff you've got. Actually, you would have to tidy a bit inbetween because you don't have the luxury of being able to employ the 'push back' method, huh - there being no wall and all!! Love your cards, as always.
