What's on my Workdesk Wednesday 200? Card box and Gorguss!

Hello there fellow desk hopper from Julia's place at Stamping Ground.

Welcome to my desk in Cape Town, South Africa!  I give you an overview of the chaos and then a close up of my Card organiser I made for my office where I sell my cards.  I am also trying to make stock for a market in September which is right round the corner at the rate at which this year is going!
I have recently bought some Gorjuss stamps and some cute little fairy baby stamps which I am colouring for the cards.  (I cut off the wings so they look like babies not fairies...)  We were away for the Easter week-end so I took them with to stamp and colour while I relaxed and chatted with the family, but still felt productive.

Here are a few finished ones.

I cut her rope away and added real chain so she can really swing on the card.

That's all from me.  Now I am off to Julia's place to see what you have put up for viewing on your desk.

Thanks for the visit

  3. I LOVE that you used real chain! That is so cool.

  4. Bella I love your card organizer. I have a store bought one but just have to have yours!! Thanks for the early visit. I woke up in the wee hours to go the bathroom and thought might as well post to Julia and then went back to bed. I hope I made sense on my comments on her site.

    I have some Gorjuss girls stamps. Aren't they so cute? I love your cards. Especially the swing.

    Have a wonderful day girlfriend,

Hugs Sharon p.s. love your TG stamps. Have you see the gorjuss TG bags at the Cape Arts and Crafts store at Century City. Awesome. The sells alot of TG products. My daughter bought me a pen.

  7. Hi Bella Glad that you had a fun Easter weekend too - and sneaked some crafting in ! We had fun but it is still freezing here - not much above 4oC all weekend ! Your cards are so lovely ! Sure they will sell like hot cakes ! Have a great week ! Hugs Ali x

  8. Hi Bella I love the gorgeous stamps, you did a great job on the colouring... I have the same stamp as the swing and it's a great idea to substitute the chain, very effective
