WOYWW #252 - Inky Desk Fun

I can't believe it is Wednesday already!  Since it is Wednesday, I am sharing what is on my work desk with you. The desk is in stamping mode as you can see.  There is a little boy who is celebrating his birthday this weekend and I was asked to make his birthday card. When asked what he wants for his birthday he answered "A lizard, cat, dog and a squirrel!" So I am going to incorporate those animals into a card.


Also sitting on my desk is a new supply of fountain pen ink samples waiting for me to fill my pens with!  I am really loving sampling inks. It is an inexpensive way to get my ink fix!


I am looking forward to visiting with a lot of you today and catching up on what you are all working on.

Happy 5th Anniversary to WOYWW and a very special THANK YOU to Julia for making this desk hopping fun possible!

Until next time!

Ha ha! What a great response to the old, "what do you want for your birthday?" question! Looking forward to seeing the finished card in all it's lizard, cat, dog and squirrel glory!
Happy WOYWW!

Reminds me of the song 'There was an old woman who swallowed a fly ...' but I expect you're too young to remember that! Have a great week, and good luck with the card. Chrysalis 53

Hi Winnie - that's one interesting combination of animals and I'm sure these a little boy going to love his card. About the inks I've just been in my stash and dug out some Drawing Inks I've had for many years and going to see how they work compared to distress inks etc...maybe I can find my nibs too. Have a great week, Cheers RobynO#40

Hi Winnie,

I imagine the card will be a hit! I like the sheet of paper on your desk - very cute! I have a card for a seven year old that I need to make. Luckily I have a bit of time!

Thanks for sharing your desk with us this week! Happy belated WOYWW.

Love those ideas for the card- his birthday request reminds me of my youngest son, he was about 7, asking for a gorilla! They'd been to visit a wildlife organisation at school, and saw a baby one there. Took a lot of convincing him that they didn't stay that size, lol.Have a great week, running around late this week, I lost Wednesday completely, lol. Hugs Shaz #55 xx

Geri Neumann said...

Love the images you're using on the birthday card. He's going to love it. Can't wait to see what you do with your calligraphy! Hugs, Geri

Minxy said...

I don't know what's more impressive, the fact you're combining all those animals or that you had stamps of all those animals in the first place.
Happy WoYwW

Oh I love the lizard, he's well, like a lounge lizard!! Great idea to incorporate the 'wants'...and kinda proves your stamp collections is rich, huh!

What a terrific idea for a card! Wondering how you got into sampling ink? Sounds so fun. Many thanks for stopping by. Diane #69

If anyone can pull off a fabulous card with all those critters, it's you. Can't wait to see the final results!

Marcy said...

I can't wait to see what you make Winnie! You do such a great job of personalizing your cards to the recipients! I'm sure this little boy will love this! Have a wonderful weekend! :)
