WOYWW#195

I've been very busy all week doing things and not blogging and thankfully not shoveling snow!! But I have been busy in my craft room! I have a few things to post the rest of the week, a product review and a project review.  I love product reviews, If I can get experienced advice about some of the products out there and save $$ I am very happy to spend the few minutes it takes to acquire that information! But Right now it is time to check out every one's Workdesk,  If you'd like to join the fun, go over to Julia's Blog at  http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/!

I've been cutting and scoring and folding since Sunday, and I needed to give my eyes a break so I made this card:

These cards were made on 130# cold pressed water color paper.  my Favorite is the Canson XL pads.  this paper is wonderful for cards and you can letter press with it!!  I purchase it when it goes on sale at Michael's.  I get the9x12 and from that I can cut 60 A6ish  cards.
I wait until the pads go on sale  and use a 20% for entire purchase , which brings them to about 5.00 per pad, .08 per card.   This paper has a wonderful weight and feel to it!
 
 
 
This isn't my product review, just wanted to share this excellent product with you!
 
and then I made a couple of kiddie cards:
 
 
The kids cards were speedy to make as I used my 4.5x6.5 mat stacks to make bases and then added the embellishments.
 
I did start something yesterday and I am almost done with it, hopefully that will be tomorrows' post .  This is a picture of Tink at the start of the project .  I can't do anything in my craft room , it would seem, with out Tink sitting on it first!
 
I don't know why, but that is how it is!! Thankfully he thinks he is only in charge of my craft room, if he had this attitude about the kitchen or dining room. He'd be in big trouble!1
Thanks for stopping by, check back tomorrow for my review!
