WOYWW - WOJ Beauties

Is it Wednesday, is it March? You have to be kidding me. Its WOYWW again and this time it gives me great pleasure to show you ladies and gentlemen..... behold .... my desk! Its a thing of beauty this week. It took me two of the four days of mid-term break to clean it up, but it was so worth it. Suddenly Mr. Mojo is back with a vengeance. Could it be because I can find things again? LOL
I finished a record number of cards in the last week. I have used every single image of my new WOJ kit on a card and as you can see I bought (don't tell DH, I used his credit card) the new Adorables from Sugar Nellie as soon as I woke up yesterday and started colouring as soon as I got home from school. To the left of my beautiful desk you will see my embellishment shelf (the recycled chocolate stand) and on the bookshelf my flower collection all neatly colour coded in containers. How did I manage to collect THREE containers of white flowers?
And here are some of the beauties from the WOJ Spring kit. They are all coloured with my Copics. I used Melissa Francis dp for this one. The flowers are paper flowers from my stash and the centre brads are fom WOJ and came with the stamps. The sentiment is also WOJ and the swirl is from Prima that I coloured with Copics. The pink lace was cut with a Martha Stewart punch.
Then, just as I finished, I remembered those awesome, tiny, flatback pearls I bought from Paola and I had to make another one. The dp is from my scrapbox and the swirl is the leftover from the previous card. The trimming is from my stash.
The next image is rather big and I did not think it needed any dp, so only Bazzil cardstock in this one. I cut the circle with my MM circle cutter (see what you find when you clean up?) and the scalloped circles were cut with my Cricut. The bling is from my local Habby store. Plain and simple, but very effective.
There are four more to show you, but this post is getting very long, so hop on over to Julia at )
Have a fantastic week everybody.

    Thanks for visiting me!

  20. Thank you for visiting me. I think maybe I need to bite the bullet and have a grand clear up too - love your blue stand by the way. you have produced some beautiful cards recently. Your piece about your Mum made me cry. I'm still lucky enough to still have my lovely Mum but I know that the time of her going is getting closer as she is 84and I do find the thought hard . I am a Christian too but not sure that she has quite the same strength of faith as your Mum.

  21. Hi Tertia

    Thank you so much for calling by, esp. when you haven't been feeling too well...hope the pills kick in ASAP for you. Your piece about your Mum made me cry too - it sums it all up so perfectly.
    Love your crafty space - and the stands are a great idea. Beautiful cards too! Am so glad I stopped by! Di x

  22. Hello Tertia - I really hope you feel the benefit of the meds soon and start to feel much better. Very sad post about your mum but I think it helps to get it all out sometimes, my Father died when I was just 5 and although my memories of him are very sketchy it's still painful 39 years later, not heart breakingly so but more wistfully if that makes sense. Hope you enjoy your weekend and return to full form ready for Monday. Beautiful cards you've been making too.


  23. Lovely cards, so sweet. I loved what you put on my blog - the "shove to the side" method of tidying up. Made me laugh :)

  24. Gorgeous cards Tertia and I have just picked myself up off the floor! How neat and tidy is your desk! Wow! My mess is now spilling onto my chair so I have nowhere to sit! I think a tidy up is on the cards!

  25. Lovely WOJ images Tertia, you sure can colour. If a display can't hold chocolate, I'm of the opinion that it's filled with the next best thing!
