WOYWW - I didn't want to, but I was forced to!.

Horror of all horrors, I cleaned my scraproom! I really didn't want to, but my scrapping group is coming over tonight for the first play date of the year and there was NO space for them at the table, so I had to clean. ('the table' is actually two tables pushed together to form one)
Whats left on my workdesk? Some happy mail. I won some blog candy from Tilly McLeod in Nieu Zeeland and that arrived yesterday. She gave away her extra copy of a magazine she was published in (beautiful cards!) and added some gems - some fantastic ribbon, some flowers and gems and some wonderful charms, even a stamp with my initial, Thank you so much Tilly.
You will also see a coloured Mo manning digi. Can you believe that I have 11 shades of green cardstock (I kid you not!) and none of them is the right shade of green!! I had to go and buy some today. If you think I am joking, cast your eyes to the left of 'the table' and you will see my collection of cardstock and my ribbons too.
If you have no idea why I am showing you my workdesk, hop over to Julia's blog and all will become clear. ( http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ ) I made it through the whole list again last week. Could not leave comments for two of you because mr. Blogger was being rude. Will try again this week, but I am not making any promises.
Don't you just love this little fairy, I found her at Funky kits. She is coloured with my Copics and cut out with a Nestie. Cardstock is Bazzil and dp is from Basic Grey. Ribbon and flowers are from my stash.

The next fairy is a freebie I found somewhere in the early days of blogging before I knew to remember who designed them, so if you recognise her, please let me know so that I can give credit. I think she is absolutely gorgeous Cardstock is Bazzil again and the dp from a DCW glitterstack. Flowers and ribbon are from my stash.
I covered her wings in Stickles, hope you can see in the close up. If you spotted it, yes, I forgot to colour her pencil and only noticed now.
Have a great day everybody, I am off to stalk all the other WOYWWers.

  5. Well organised paper - no problems finding a colour then. Well OK sometimes the colour is not the right one and one has to buy some more. Crafters the world over have this problem.

  8. I always clean before company comes too. Though the only visitors I get are relatives and backdoor friends - backdoor friends don't care about your mess they come to see you not your house. But it's always good to give someone a place to sit and work. Love the ribbon and paper racks.

  15. Even if you print your own backing paper or card, you will still not have exactly the right shade. Your fairies are so pretty with lovely facial expressions, just the kind I like.

  19. Great candy win, I'm sure I also saw your name somewhere else this week for a challenge win, or a blog hop or something!!! Hope you know about it and I haven't made a mistake! Lol. Beautiful cards, I need to ask, what's the best way to stick flower sprays on to cards, like the one on your photo? What's the best adhesive do you think? I'd like to try it but don't want the to fall off!!

    Hugs

  21. Wooo - that's a seriously lovely stash of ribbon and card (although I can see what you mean about the right shade of green proving elusive). Nice to see the stickles - I've just ordered my first set, and I think I'm going to have fun with them.

  28. The colouring on your cards is so beautiful! And the fairy stamps are cute! I like the 2nd one most of all! And your paper and ribbon is better than going to the store! Over xmas I found that green and red papers are sometimes difficult to match as they are so many different shades of them!
    thanks for visiting me!

  29. ah those fairy cards are just so cute. I love the way you manage to get your flowers sitting too. I can never manage to get them to look anything other than 'thrown together'.

    i soooooo want your paper storage rack, actually and all the paper in it - hee hee. I quite agree there are never enough shades in my cardstock collection.
    thanks for popping over earlier. caroline #53

  40. That’s serious storage you have there for your ribbons and cardstock Tertia and as you say, hard to believe that you couldn’t find the right shade in amongst all of that.

    Two beautiful cards to. I love the subtle shades of the second one and all the glittering…….you can never have too much glitter. Lol!

  44. Great happy mail. Love your little "nook" with your paper rack and ribbon rack. Love that fairy. So fun that she is knitting a spider web. That would be a cute image for a sweet Halloween card too. The other fairy is just as cute, and your coloring is wonderful. Hope you are well! Best, Curt
