W O Y W W 159

Good afternoon crafters!!  Today I'm joining in with my very first "What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday".  Being quite new to blogging, I can see that I've got lots of "first" to come, so very exciting!  I was encouraged to do WOYWW by Lavinia who is a very dear friend of mine and a truly inspiring crafter, so thank you very much for introducing me to this crafty community.  So, what was on my workdesk?  The makings of a birthday card for one of my nephews who is 15 today.

He is very keen on drums and guitar so I thought that this Kenny K digi stamp was very appropriate!  As usual it has been coloured using promarkers!  Then I picked some co-ordinating cardstock from my stash and just matt and layered it up!  

Although, as you can see from the finished card I did change my mind at the eleventh hour about the black and white cardstock, and just went for something with more black on it (not quite sure that was the right decision now - hay ho)!  Finally I just embellished it with a few mulberry paper musical notes and the jobs done!  I hope he likes it :-)


  1. Love your card. Welcome to WOYWW. Thanks for sharing your workspace with us. Hope you have a good week. Hazel WOYWW #87 x

  9. Welcome to WOYWW and blogging! Your background is so richly intensely red so I clicked on your avatar photo to get a better idea of you and wow! If that's a shot from your wedding then I bet it was amazing! Otherwise its still a really cool picture, and by cool of course I mean awesomely romantical! ;) My original point was that I love your background. And hope you are able to join in many more WOYWWs and I'm going to follow you because your cards are pretty neat, and I am also hoping you share techniques in the future on using the markers. (hint, hint! lol)I'm completely amateur hour with them and from the comments above I hear you are brill with them! :)

  13. Hi Debs. Good to have you along. That is one wildman birthday card which I'm sure the nephew will enjoy.
    You have such an orderly and good-looking table to work at. I would rather like something the same but I don't think it would stay that way!
    Thanks for calling on me - glad you like the ATCs.
