WOYWW256 Cleaning & a Card

I have been slightly busy one thing you can see is I shot this mess last night before I cleaned it up. I had received this new MFT Graduation accents die set in the mail and wanted to see how it would look. if you are curious about why the mess is on display this morning you can read all the details on Julia's blog here and play along. 

one thing I did do last weekend was my friend Alice gave me a couple of large mouth vintage canning jars so, I re-organized all my store bought flowers and then I had some little jars empty so, I ended up sorting through all the jello molds of "stuff" that was in this old tool tray and moved a lot of it to little jars and just cleaned a little. 

now this is a closer look at something new coming to my blog starting tomorrow. I have been sitting on a secret for a little while and it goes live at midnight. 

you can click on these photos to enlarge them. 

now this is just a simple one, not sure If I will do another or not yet. hubs did not seem all that impressed with this one. the class of and the cap are all from the my favorite things graduation accents die set and the numbers are stamped from the Tim Holtz mini numeric cling set with some memento nautical blue which looks a lot like the pti enchanted evening cs to my eye.

I drew the white on the cap with an gelly roll pen and used an stardust one to trace around all the lettering and such on this. the cap was cut twice once in enchanted evening and once in white to paper piece the tassel. the top is up on pop dots. this card is A-6 in real life, the base is textured bazzill.

I really like the card, simple yet very elegant. Look like a lot of cleaning and tidying went on. Always nice to find somewhere to store things. I'm afraid I tend to store things in little piles all around my room :) Had a close look but can't work out what the secret is, will have to wait.
Have a great week,
Von #11
