What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday? 86

OMgosh not sure what happened last week, I messed up  and may have skipped a few. I am sorry if I missed your posting.  I tried to stop by the ones I thought I skipped.  Guess that's what happens from time to time.  I know of only one that had a bad link that I could not find. 

Once again I had loads of fun visiting everyone.  A big thank you to all that came by to visit and left such nice comments.  My post will be short and sweet.

On my workspace this week is the start of a new project, of course I am using my cuttlebug.. The cardboard you see is only used to protect my plates, I don't like all the cutting lines and I hate replacing plates...lol 


This is the retro project now completed, posted on Sunday.  Had a great time making it.


Thanks for stopping by, can't wait to see what everyone's workdesk!  Oops almost forgot, if you want to join in all the fun hop on over to Julia's at the Stamping Ground.  

Hugs, Marjo

Wow, that is one colorful and hippy card!! Is the image a hippy? Or is that hippie? Whichever, I love it. Sorry I missed you last week. This was a colorful post and looks like you have some nice blog candy for some lucky follower. Happy WOYWW from #10.

card looks amazing and one hing I can say about the cuttlebug it fits on your desk, my bigshot is great but I can never find any room for it! (Me too, covers plates with card, it helps with the embossing line too.

MaggieC said...

Love your pink bug, mine is just the plain green one - still it works so I will be satisfied for now. The retro card brings back a lot of memories.

karen said...

Your retro card is fabulous! I love the flowers especially!
And the pink Cuttlebug is so cute! The flourish on the front is pretty. I have the green one and it works great, so I don't have an excuse to get the pink one I guess, lol.
Happy WOYWW!

Andria said...

Your retro project looks fab, lots of work in it.

What a cool retro card!! I love your idea of using cardboard on the cutting plates - I had those lines as well!
Thanks for stopping by earlier.

great card - love the peace sign and flower power flowers! happy WOYWW!

Cardarian said...

Hmmm so a peace of cardboard protects the plates??? Must test that theory! My plates look quite bad and it is hard to find B plates so I am getting a bit desperate! Your desk looks busy and I really like your retro project!
Hugs,

Wonderfully colourful project! Love the shape you used for your journalling - is that cut with the Cuttlebug? And you have what looks like a great collection of pens ...

Kezzy said...

Oh Marjo the retro card is fantastic, you have such fab ideas. I can't wait to see the project your working on finished. Thanks for worrying about me, even I was worried about me!!! Lol. I really missed everyone. I'm going to work on your email this weekend, I'd also like to get emails to say when the crafters I follow make a post. Is this possible? Thanks for all your help, I've been so lucky meeting such wonderful people who like to help.

Di said...

Thanks so much for commenting on my first venture into WOYWW Marjo! I should have guessed you'd also have a pink CB - so cute aren't they. And, like others, I never thought about protecting that poor scarred plate with card!

Love your blog! Di x

Tracey Brossart said...

Awesome groovy card! And I never thought of using cardboard for a buffer to the plates. I don't like the cutting lines either and I have a b plate that will be do to break any day now. Question though...does the cardboard affect the thickness of the way everything moves through? I would be afraid of breaking my cuttlebug.

Happy be-lated WOYWW and
Thanks for the peek! :D

Groovy Project girl. Thanks for leaving me a comment on my blog, you had said that the font was to hard to read. SO I changed it today, you were right, I read my blog and other blogs at 150% so its big for me and I can read it, but not every one has there computer set that way.
