What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #463

Thanks for the warm welcome back. I didn't mean to leave it another month before joining in again. I blame the weather.

Despite being notorious for not sticking to things (see above!) I got it into my head that I wanted to try The 100 Day Project this year. I decided to go with something small and easily manageable, even on days when I only had 10 minutes to spare. DIY Project Life cards seemed to fit to bill.

To keep things simple, I picked a favourite set of stamps and a couple of ink pads to start me off....

























....swapped the pink for yellow and changed the focal image....

























....added some kraft into the mix and a little bee....

























....to make a coordinating set of cards. I  have three more that I haven't got round to photographing yet which makes twelve* in total. I can't quite believe I've kept up....so far. Now to pick another set of stamps for the next group of cards.

Anyone else taking part in this project? Let me know and I'll come check you out. I'm sharing mine on Instagram every few days. Linking up with the lovely Julia and the equally lovely deskers on this glorious sunny morning.

*For the eagle eyed among you, who have counted ten cards here, I put the taupe lace background into two photos. My maths isn't quite that terrible!

Afternoon Fiona. How lovely to meet you today. How are you doing? You have done well to keep up - I would have had a disastrous time with doing that - the little cards you have made are beautiful - so simple looking, but so effective.
Take care. God bless.

Those are gorgeous! I love the lace effect of the stamps, it makes a pretty background which is enhanced by those lovely little bees. Are they ATC sized? They'd be perfect for it!
Lovely to see you on the desks again :-D

I like your cards & that stamp that you used for the pink floral spray is really a nice one. Try as I do, stamping still does not come easy to me - you do such a neat job of stamping.

Great cards and choice of stamp! Not in instagram or doing the challenge but see a lot of entries around! Helen #2

Seriously impressed at your keepy uppy, and no counting here, too bedazzled by the thought of the lovely collection that you’re amassing! And one of the reasons I never stick to these things is because I don’t think about them enough first - and end up not wanting to make something that’s not going to be useful!

These are really pretty! I once did an ATC a day for a year challenge - did finish, but sometimes it was a real struggle! Good Luck!Happy Wednesday Cindy #20

Hmmm. I'm blaming the weather for almost everything right now, and it deserves it. It's snowed every day this week but one, and that day it poured all day long. We even had an ice storm on Sunday. Yuck. I love your PL cards. I'm trying to get caught up with PL, so I'm glad for the inspiration. I'm also doing the 100 Day Project and I have two posts up --one for each week. I can't keep up with a daily Instagram post so I'm trying to do a weekly blog summary.

Love those patterns with the flowers stamped on them. They look awesome.

Beautiful background papers and stamps, it's such a rewarding feeling when we manage to catch up with stuff although i'm often chasing my tail. I am on instagram, i'll have to try and find you. Thank you for sharing WOYWW.
Creative wishes for the week ahead Tracey #13

Lovely cards you have made and I love the ones with the little bees especially! I have heard of the project but have enough on my plate, so not feasable for me to do at the moment,but love seeing everyone else's projects! Hope you're having a fantastic day! xo Cheetarah #24

These are so pretty - you are so creative!

Sarah Brennan said...

Love these Fiona; it's amazing how a change of colour and stamp can alter the whole feel of a card. I particularly like the ones with the bees. Happy WOYWW. Sarah #17

Kelly said...

Those PL cards are gorgeous! Simplicity at it's most elegant. Love your approach to the 100 days. I never know when it starts until after it's begun. Maybe next year I can hop in. 'Course I'm not sure I need another project hehe. I'll look you up on IG. I'm KellysCountry. - cowboy boot with a cowboy hat avatar. Creative Blessings! Kelly #27

They are looking lovely and fair play for signing up (I found inktober was the limit of my concentration!!).
