WOYWW # 268

It's Wednesday and that means it's WOYWW  which stands for .......
'What's On Your Work desk Wednesday'.
If you too would like to join in the fun then, take a picture of your work desk, table, etc. and share it with lots of other like minded people.
Hop on over to Julia's blog   Stamping Ground  for more info. Hope to see you there
Hello again,
So here we are again, it's Wednesday and we are having another beautiful day. My hubby finishes work on Friday for two weeks, what's the betting the weather breaks on Friday tea time. Can you tell I am a pessimist?  I shall keep my fingers crossed and see if that works, lol.
Any way lets get down to business here is my desk
To the left. My very sophisticated set up for taking the pics of my cards etc. The little tub on the windowsill is a decorated tub of cotton buds, ok until it needs refilling, I can NEVER transfer the contents over successfully! Most of the schtuff on my desk is the fallout from another pop up box card I made for my bloggie friend Anne's birthday 
scroll down for pics of her card.
The centre. The little pots hold Black and Gold glitter, in front of them are a set of files, and my monica that I have stamped onto sticky label sheets and punched out ready to use, then more leftovers from the box card.

To the right. Bits of coloured waste from some of the flowers and butterflies I used on the box card, tools, washie tape, foam pads, embossing tools  under the papers sits a black stationary tray for rulers, erasers and othe bits n pieces. There's a mock up of the box card, my printer, which decided it would no longer accept card and refuses to work ! score boards on top,  and on the windowsill the box where my scissors, knives, tweezers etc live. My notepad is at the ready for noting down the names of the WOYWWers I visit (my memory is not what it used to be). Where was I ?? Oh yes, well that's about it for this weeks desk, thank you for paying me a visit today and I will do my best to come visit you and your desk.
For those of you that would like to take a peek at Anne's card ..........Here it is...............

                                          Front     underneath key hole flap        
                                                    Left side
                                          Left side under heartwings              
                                                 Right side
                                         Right side under frame and crown
                                         and back to the front again       

 I must apologise for the quality of these photo's, I kept retaking them but just couldn't seem to  make them any better. I think maybe I need to upgrade my very sophisticated photography set up!!!
I tried to make this card using everything t!m holtz as Anne is a t!m  groupie, I mean fan lol, I almost managed it apart from the tiny butterflies (stampin up) the hello my friend which was computer generated to fit the film strip. Also the Take time sentiment, which is from Paulette over at was printed on to tissue paper and adhered with Ranger multi matte medium , and the scrolls above and below are a spellbinder die.
Phew!! I don't know about you but I think I need a cup of tea after all that.
Thank you if you stuck it out till the end, I hope you have fun desk hopping and have a great weekend, come rain or shine! or should that be shine or rain, I wonder if whoever thought that up was a pessimist??
Happy Art making
Hugs Lottie x

  9. This is the most amazing Pop-Up card I have seen so far, it is gorgeous Lottie. I spy a new embossing folder Lol!
    I'm late getting round this week as there have been other more pressing jobs but I'll get there in the end.
    Have a great week and happy crafting my friend, Angela x #44

  10. Ha ha well spotted with the heat mat. Yes I did accidentally and the other edge too I would love to get a new one but just cannot justify it as the A1 ones are soooo expensive now ... So
    I'll just live with it

  11. Better late than never, I am finally able to come and tell you how stunning your popup card is, Lottie! I saw it over on Annie's blog and I was blown away. Now I'm even more amazed to see the closeups and views from all angles that you have shown here. You really are a card ARTIST, my friend!! I feel so honored that I have one of your creations first-hand!! I hope you enjoy hubby's time off and that the weather is glorious. (Trying to counter your negativism - is it working??!!) Hugs, Darnell

  12. Love your card box so bright and cheery. I am so sorry for getting back to you so late in the week I am doing a last minute dash to make up for my very busy crazy week, i do hope you forgive me.
