Today Is the day to start your international work desk blog hop! Start Here; http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ At Julia's blog where every week she so kindly hosts' this around the world craft desk tour!
My Desk today : Fun, clean and simple stuff!
I'm working on two cards tonight, this is my stand up work area and I am making my entry for the CAS Blog, this week's theme is GOLD.
I love gold, so this was easy, and it would have been a ten minute card if I hadn't taken 20 minutes to "sand off" smudged liquid pearls!!
Here is the card, it is a 5x7 and I used Elizabeth dies for the Koi (Gold Fish). I used wrapping paper for the gold work!

The Next challenge is for a cause near and dear to my heart, Operation Write Home!
With this challenge, OWH supplies a card sketch for the card and you choose everything else.
Take a moment to go over to the OWH Blog. This is a Non Profit organization dedicated to sending our military Heroes beautiful cards so that they have something to write home on. OWH has teaching videos, classes, challenges and even a weekly TV show to help us become better card makers. So while we are helping others, Sandy Allnock is helping us become better card makers and crafters! It is a total Win - Win!!
This is the sketch for this week;
This was the first picture, I decided I didn't like the white showing.
So here is my tip: the terrific edge coloring tool
It is the edge of my distress pad, I just rub it along the edge and I get a perfect cover up every time!!
The edgw was actually supposed to be black, but alas, I am pretty nearsighted and the dog just can't do colors yet, he keeps telling me everything is black or gray!
We are both working on it!
Just in case you were wondering:
