WOYWW165 & Make it Monday & BC Winner

It's Wednesday and that means it's time once again to hop around the world to snoop at workdesks on Julia's Stamping Ground (WOYWW165)I've sufficiently recovered from the pineapple escapade from last week!  ;-)

I thought you might be getting bored with my desk so I thought I'd share the new decal I put on the laundry room wall.  Now, mind you I do my laundry and ironing (I HATE ironing but I iron everything!) within 2 days but I did think this was fun.  It's on a wall above the window in the laundry room.

I found it on Etsy at a shop called Walls that Talk.  My only complaint is that it took ALOT of rubbing to get the letters to stick so it took over an hour to get this up. Otherwise, I love it and will probably buy more from this shop as she has some great sayings.

I also grabbed a few minutes..ok, more like an hour to make a card for Papertrey's Make it Monday #76 challenge. Yes, I know it's not Monday, but I didn't have any creative time the past two days.  This week's challenge is called "Double Time Bleach Stamping".  The idea is to bleach stamp then use ink over the bleach.  I figured most people would do flowers so I chose something different.  I had a hard time getting the bleach to take on some of the PTI paper colors for some reason but it liked the Melon Berry.

I stamped small solid circles with ink on the solid bleached circles.

Paper - Neenah Ivory; PTI Melon Berry
Ink- Versamagic Pink Grapefruit, Versafine Black
Stamps - PTI Polka Dot Basics, Signature Sentiments II
Other - bleach; PTI Fabulous Frames dies; ribbon

Finally, I have the winner of July's Blog Candy.

That Etsy saying for the laundry room is a hoot.
I am an ironer and some days i like it better than others. Not so much on a hot day though!

Pretty card. I have not heard of that technique.

The 'ironing: haha' bit would suit me down to the ground, I haven't ironed for about eight years! Looks like you've been working hard, what with rub-ons not rubbing on and bleach not bleaching! :P

Love your laundry room sign ~ so funny, yet so true in my laundry room :)
Your card is so pretty. This was my first attempt with the bleaching and also had a tough time with some colored cardstock.

Great card - the color is great! I had the same problem with the purple and the bleach so I had to flip the color choices I had made -It was fun though.

The ironing thing is definitely my idea of the way laundry should be done!
