WOYWW#254 and the Ole Gray Mare

Hi all, it's WOYWW again!!  The Fun starts here At Julia's blog and then travels all over the world!!

As Some of my readers know I went back to work last week in a vintage print shop.  After 3 days of working, lifting and cleaning I have come to realize this was perfect timing for the reconstruction of my constitution. 
 
 
The ole gray mare ain't what she used to be!!



Hahaha!  Actually if feels good to be working and I have a very pleasant job!  Now for my Work desk at home: it is quite calm!  I have been doing a lot of DT work and swaps and journals in the last couple weeks.  Today I am working on my sister act project (see last weeks WOYWW) and making a few cards. 
 
I just made this card for the Oriental Stamps Arts'  "Ikebana" swap.
Ikebana means art of flower arranging, This swap required an Asian floral image, a hand stamp and a die cut.
 
Here is my card:
 
It's pretty CAS
.
I also worked on getting my 12x12 paper under control today:
 
I like these sterilite containers, they are sturdy and keeps the paper dust free.  I'd like to replace the smaller with 12x12 in the by and by - buy and buy :o).
 
Thanks for stopping over and I hope you will have time to enjoy the hop, it usually takes me a whole week!!
Have a great day!
Ginny

  6. well good for you Ginny - I had the same constituional awareness moment when I started as an Aprrentice! Lawks! But, being busy with a job sure keeps me motivated to use my own time effectively. Although not as tidily as you do. Ahem. Love the die you used on the card..that would have been a challenge for me, I think I only own 2 vaguely Asian influenced images or dies!
