What's On Your Workspace Weds. and more Valentines...

Hello-o-o-o,

Time to show what's on the desk this winter Wednesday. Well, my deadline to get these Valentines in for the card drive (see more info HERE) is the end of the month, so I'm chugging along. I got very ambitious this weekend when I stamped a number of Paper Smooches (PS) cuties with the intention of making a card featuring each. While hubby watched his football games, I sat beside him coloring away with my Copics. Then, on Monday, I built a nice fire and sat and cut them all out. A fire compliments a foggy, rainy winter day, don't you think?

So that's why you see piles of cut up colored animals on my desk and last week's pile of Valentine appropriate papers.


I've told myself that if I'm going to make a card for each, they're going to have to start being clean and simple. Of course, I came to that conclusion after I made last week's hamster card and this next dragon card. Not the easiest, but they are sweet. This dragon started out as a dinosaur from PS's Party Posse set. I made him some wings and the fire that he's breathing (intending no harm). I used circles for the boulders. "Warm and fuzzy" and "wishes" come in the same set, but I needed "Valentine" so I stamped it with PS's Alphadots. It is so cool that you can create any word you want with their cute font this way. Those butterflies were needed for balance so I took them from a Unity KOTM called Picture Perfect.


Now starts the clean and simple. I've been hoarding this cute canvas ribbon with the print already on it for some time. I thought it went well with a bear offering a hug. *smile* He's from PS's Chubby Chum Pals and the paper is 7 Gypsies.


This silly duck is from the same set as the bear. I embossed the heart he's leaning on, gave him a little heart to hold and stamped the saying with Alphadots again. I couldn't resist this silly sentiment.


Well, I've got a few more animals to work with. But that's for another day.....
Thanks for visiting! If you'd like to see more workspaces, grab yourself a beverage and check out Julia's blog!
