What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #402

Things were happening at the kitchen table yesterday. Prepping for class this morning. Cutting and scoring blanks for 32 cards and packing all the supplies.
























We'll be inking up a brand new set of stamps and I've chosen colours that I usually wouldn't put together. I think it worked. It's all too easy to reach for the tried and tested and get stuck in a rut. Here's to breaking out.

Linking up with Julia and the Deskers before I head out this morning. It's Half Term here so that means 9am instead of 7am, which is a bonus. Happy Wednesday.

Hi Fiona, like everyone else, loving the balloon set. really versatile. It is good to step away from the tried and tested sometimes, I agree. Otherwise, all my cards would be black and white, lol. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #5 XxXxX

Would love to see what the finished article is with the balloons. I agree about colours have some purchased inks in the past and then thought what every made me buy this but after experimenting some fantastic cards have been produced.

Up Up & Away, what a wonderful theme to be working with & it is good to sometimes shake things up with colour.
