WOYWDW and stuff!

Hi Bloggettes!

How you all doing? I hope no one has any or too much of that nasty white stuff, they do keep threatening us with more though!

I don't want any! Not even a flake :)) We had a smattering again last night but that's gone now thank goodness.

So anyway here's my card for this weeks Softpencil challenge. Is'nt this little pirate cute? Of course he has his parrot on his shoulder lol He's been coloured with Copics and I went over the pattern on his bandana with a white pen. The papers are Costco specials, punching a la Martha Stewart, paper raffia and a magnolia skull! I think the punch gives a sort of wave effect.... well that was the plan anyway. I hope you like him ;))

Now this is a sneak of WOYWW - you can just see my mess behind this box! I think it shows enough of my usual mess! It'll be tidy one day and you'll all faint..... Don't hold your breath waiting though.

Now as it was Valentines day I decided to make a box to pop the OM's present in, which was 2 CDS... so I made the box and it was about 1/2 an inch too narrow! How annoying was that? Yes VERY annoying is the answer. Anyway I'd got him some opera tickets so I put those in instead.

This is a one piece box - a pizza style box I suppose. Punched around with good old Marthas, the danger then is then when its been decorated that it becomes too girly for a man.... OK I know its bright pink! I like him to be in touch with his feminine side. Actually that would be hard - I don't think he has one.

Anyway I opted for some black raffia, an assortment of flowers from Wild Orchid crafts and a Magnolia heart stamp which was Copic'd.

My 'arty' shot! Hmm I'm thinking that's looking a bit tidier! Yup the brads have moved.

Pop over to Julia's and check out the other messes, er sorry desks!
