WOYWW 188 - Making Card For Kids

Hi Everyone!
Here I am back with What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  I took a little break over the holidays and missed peeking into all the creative spaces.  Check out Julia's Blog Stamping Ground for all the details.  And, link up for a journey around the world having a look at all the busy work spaces!  On my desk are some of the cards I have been making for Operation Write Home.  The cards were all designed to appeal to Children.   I will take better photos later  and post them to my blog.  I decided that January will be a month when I make cards for card drives.  I started this morning on Valentine's cards that will be sent to hospitalized children.  I will share those as well when I get them made.  Here's my desk:

There are some My Favorite Things, Stampavie, Crafter's Companion, and Sweet N Sassy stamps.  And, lots of papers.  I am putting a little ribbon on the bunny card.   Below are a few more of the cards I made for Operation Write Home.  Stamps: My Favorite Things, ducks-Prairie Fairy digi, bird is a Sizzix die cut.

And, this last photo is a picture of a cutter I bought.  (One of my Christmas gifts from my husband--I picked it out and bought it.  LOL)  It works pretty good and the cuts are very accurate.

Hope you have enjoyed taking a peek at my work space.  Tomorrow I will be posting a card made with Stampsmith stamps.  Something to warm you up on a cold winter's day.  See you then.  Happy WOYWWing!!  Love ya.
