What's On Your Workdesk #96-Easter Carrots


I get to start back in blogging  after vacation with What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. Sorry I did not get around to say hello at all last week having been to Arizona , but I will try to catch up this week! Hi Julia!!!! I had perfect weather......90 to 100 degrees most days! Came home to 48°...will need to get my coat back on....

I made this cute Easter treat tonight. I had to finish this project just to get the feel of the paper in my hands LOL!  It was a little awkward to photograph, but I guess I managed! You get the idea any way...

Yep, desk is still somewhat messy, but I am working on it. I am going to make quite a few carrots--- so this is going to be a busy project...sort of like my svg pumpkin project. Luckily I have enough time to finish them up, provided I don't procrastinate too long!

 Here you can see what the svg cut looks like and the amount of candy that you can fit into it after it is rolled up....2 chocolate eggs and 8 jelly beans...just the right size carrot for good treats! I downloaded the svg from PaperScissorsInk blog. You should go browse and check out her creations...fun stuff! (oh by the way-- you can cut 4 carrots from one piece of 12 x 12 paper!)  (I just used my atg tape gun to hold this closed.)

 This stamp is made by Great Impressions...knew I had to have it!


Carrot details:
-----------------------------
Stamps: Great Impressions Jelly Bean
Cardstock: Orange dots from Boxer Scrapbook Productions LLC, garden green
Ink: Versafine black and Stampin Up markers
Misc: Mega rectangle nestie, Cheapo curly ribbon,
SVG: carrot freebie from PaperScissorsInk
