Good morning fellow deskers, and it is looking like a lovely morning so far, at
Well on my desk today are just the beginnings of the ATC's for the swap, my stamp folder, some inks and a few part made cards.
Not very exciting at all, so if you want exciting pop over to the desk Queen Julia where you can see loads of far more interesting desks.

 Meantime during the week I had a blitz of finished cards and filed them tidily in a box so that I can see what I have at a glance.

And just a few of the cards I have filed in there.
The two purple ones are made using the card from which I have die cut flourishes and it seemed to be a waste to throw them away

Sorry Julia it seems to have got a bit heavy on pics.
 Anyway that's all for now, thanks for reading my ramblings, now it is time for a cup of tea and some snooping.

Nice cards! And good use of the due cut leftovers. I'll make a note that you would like to swap ATCs and we can swap details later.
Have a good week.

Such beautiful cards and no don't throw away die cuts there is always something to use them on. Love the card with the dragonflies on it.

Oh, how funny - I commented on someone else's blog earlier asking them if they used the die cut waste to make any more cards....and here you are having already done it!! I love the effect with the purple and silver, very elegant indeed!
Hugs, LLJ 14 xx

A whole box of finished cards? I'm very impressed. I don't think I have one finished card, let alone a box of them. Very impressed.

Happy WOYWW,

Lovely cards. Especially the butterfly one. The dark blue thing with leaves on is a coaster.

Thanks for your visit earlier - I found something else I need from Paris, net curtains! French ones are excellent.
I haven't even started on my ATCs for this swap yet .... I love your idea for using the negatives of the diecuts .... excellent.
