Stuff, but not lots of it

I went to a Stampin' Up workshop last night and made these fun cards.  When I got home my husband asked me if I ordered all sorts of wonderful SU goodies.  You know what?  I didn't.
No, no, no need to call a doctor.  I'm not sick.  I just haven't gotten to it yet.  I'm not sure what I want besides pretty much one of everything.  Do you have any good suggestions?  I hear the SU magnetic plate for the Big Shot is being restocked and will be available to purchasing starting tomorrow.  That's a must have or so the few lucky people who got it the first time say.
I feel sort of bad that I didn't link up to What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, because I actually have stuff on my desk. I was gearing up to teach a little card class this evening.  You can see the card in the plastic shoe box.  I have a few other random things on my desk like finished cards, cling stamp sets, two glasses cases, a spirelli kit, my new SU chevron embossing folder and Charles' ears.  Okay, he isn't on the desk but he is in the right hand corner of the photo.  He was all over me trying to get into every shot.
Here I tried to pull him out of the shot on my chair.
Here I tried to photograph the table but Charles intervened.  I like that it looks like he's trying to use the papercutter.  He's banned from it though as we chopped off his whiskers on one side with it when he was kitten.
The Fine Print: Probably most everything on those two cards are by Stampin' Up, with the possible except of that fancy lace ribbon on the second card.  And obviously, I did link up to WOYWW.  I'm just late to the party.

Oh a crafting kitty, hmm, he'd better not take over from crafting bears!

SU stuff, we don't know a lot about it but we did see a FAB chevron punch advertised as coming soon, it would go with your embossing folder, aren't we helpful?

Charles looks as if he's operating the guillotine!! Clever cat..put a video of him on YouTube, you'd get loads of hits and make a mint!! All my cats do is get entangled in my wool and try to sit in my fabric box.....little so and so's :-)
Hugs, LLJ 54 xx

Love the kitties! Your cards are wonderful.

I just started a stamping up class on Mondays for 6 weeks. Hoping to meet other gals who like to paper craft! Really enjoyed the Class Monday and looking forward the the other 5.

What a nice little neat box of tricks you have there!
Love that Charles wants in on the action! So cute!
The SU stocking die is pretty big, around 7 inches in height, I was impressed with the size!

Mary Jo Rhoda said...

Very pretty cards!
I haven't ordered anything from SU in so long, so I wouldn't be much help.
I always loved their inks though!

RosA said...

Love any of your pics where the kitties appear!
Thanks for dropping by and for your kind comments re the Stampscapes. A friend gave me a ton of gloss photo paper and this just really helps to make those stamps "pop"!
Have a good week,

Love how your kitty is looking thru all your fun things. I mean there has to be something neat in there for him to play with! :) Love that desk, with all of its cubby holes and I enjoyed looking at your space and your beautiful cards.

Ooh hello Charles, what a lovely kitty you are, keeping your momma from getting lonely while she crafts - now shift your butt you stupid cat so we can see the desk!! Honestly, what can you do with them? Vince somehow wormed his way between my boxes of stamps in the cupboard - and wondered why I didn't see him when I shut the door. Sigh. Gotta love em. Hugs Sxx PS. Fabbie cards babes!

Thanks for the lovely comment re Jacquie's workspace - she read my blog and the comments and was really touched by all the positivity. Thanks for the snoop round yours! x Jo

Kelly said...

I need to look back through my SU cattys and get my order ready for the first of November. I just keep saying I still have time. right?

How could we create without our furry muse? Though it sounds as if he needs some safety tips if he's going to be in the studio. :-)
Creative Blessings! ~Kelly #105

I usually come home with some SU stuff when I visit America but never get any here in the UK.
Charles is adorable (I mean your kitty not my other half).
Hugs, Neet 113 (and thanks for the visit you made to me. I am so late!)
