Way OUT Wednesday features a card that pops up or OUT and that’s just what I’ve done with this adorable Pollycraft Sharing Sherbet “Secrets” stamped girl.  I popped her, the mushroom, the large metal “Friends Forever” embellishment and I wired the little fly for a WAY OUT effect!

Inside the card, I cut from a template and folded the pop-out element so when the card is opened her little OWL friend pops out with the flower!  I love these Pollycraft Sherbert stamps.   I colored her in bright spring colors and she’s a GINGER with her freckles and strawberry blond hair! 

I’m off to clean the leaves out of my garden beds and plant some flowers in pots for our deck as we may hit 80 degrees today in Kansas City.
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone!

Today I’m sharing some photos of my craft room and office. These pictures were taken a few days ago, when it was actually tidy. . . not so much now, so after this post I will straighten up again!  Keep scrolling. . .lots of pictures today and today’s Girl Cards is at the very end!

Above:  Most of my stamps are stored where I can see them in the shelves of this corner! 
I love all the natural light that comes in through the four windows. Above: A close up of my stamping supplies-I like to label my bins.  There is much more in the cabinets under the shelves.  The other side of my office (above, right photo) is more my books about fine art and architecture with a couple of owls peeking out, some of my fiber art, my T.V. , my PC where I do all my posting, and my paper crafting table.
Left: My display case. I need more room. . .its cramed full!  Below, Left: Close up of my work space.  
Some of my drawings, oil  and watercolor painting. 
Below:  The nightmare Barn House I designed and built a model for in my undergrad program.  See inside below, yes I cut all those tiny pieces for furniture.  Thank goodnes my model building days are over!  Now I just cut paper!  Whooo Whooo. . .more owls peeking out.
I LOVE this little girl stamp and have used it quite often.  This card has a clear overlay with a preprinted image of flowers and a border that I added some stickles to and bling. 
I colored her again in more pastel colors.  I need to work on simplfying. . .Less is More, but she was calling out for lots of flowers around her!
One more Bella!
Have a great Tuesday!
