All tidy on the Workdesk front..

I've driven myself to it; a need to tidy up and get things straight so that I can see what I'm doing. Amazing isn't it; it wasn't clutter city or overwhelmed with papers or the usual sort of WOYWW horror, more that I've been fiddling with more than two or three things and the sum of their parts was definitely greater than even my untidy brain could manage. So this afternoon with the door wide open, the sun warming my face and The Beatles causing me to whistle, I cleared up. And I finished the three unfinished things and gave myself permission to put away the non-starters for another day. I feel a little more in control now.

These inchies were coloured with my Ciaos and although you can't really see, each one has Glossy Accents on a different section. It's my entry for this week's Daring Cardmakers challenge. And the first inchies I've actually done - from a lovely Autumnal set by Inkadinkado. I don't know how many more - or more accurately, how much use the rest of the stamps in the set will get...I'm kinda struggling to see the point. Fun, I guess, on a smaller scale than a card or an ATC. Probably no more no less. Ask me what I think when I've seen the hundreds of beautiful samples these Dares attract - I'm so fickle! I guess the real bonus for me was colouring in time!

Thank you for your interest in 2 Scrap Ladies, it's exciting. I'm usually involved in an event of this nature locally every year, so you'd think that opening the bookings to a wider audience would be a natural progression, huh. Well it might make sense, but I'm feeling quite exposed at the moment! Still, we have worked hard to dot i's and cross t's and we know the venue works, so actually, the best way for us to deal with it is to bring it on! We'll be posting articles and more pics as the days go by.

Gorgeous inchies, the stamps are perfect and I am sure you will find other uses for them. I have a small mirror with a really wide flat fram that I intend to cover in inchies or twinchies at some point.

Julia, despite the fact that using inchies wasn’t your most favourite of dares, you’ve made one stunning card.
I love those little stamps and the colours look fab.

Thanks for joining in with the Daring Cardmakers this week.

They are lovely - they look like little porcelain mosaic tiles (or whatever tiles are made of) They don't look like pen & ink at all. Never tried inchies before but these are fabulous!

Ooooh, actual inchies, but on a card! Well done, Jules, I love the colours.
