What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #147

Morning all and what a glorious sunny one it is here. Still the decorating saga continues. I have no desk, which is why I didn’t join in last week. But I missed the desk hopping, so I’m back without a desk and I hope you don’t mind.

We’ve had birthday celebrations in the meantime, of the sweet sixteen and big four-O varieties. The above was made for my niece, but I saw the perfect card for my husband a couple of months ago and bought it….from a shop….I know!

The day of the party also happened to be Mother’s Day/Mothering Sunday and this is the card I made for my lovely Mum.

OK, I’ve kept it brief as instructed and I’ll be round to visit later. There is washing to be hung out first and sunshine to be enjoyed, while it’s here.

Nice bunting, I made some myself at a workshop on Saturday. Not posted pics yet as I havent finished it but I did finish a bird canvas, a card and a little stuffed bird.
Hope you get your desk back soon. In the meantime you can share mine (virtually I mean)

I'm just enjoying a coffee break while my little munchkins take their nap so thought I'd catch up with a few of my blogging friends and check out what you've been up to this week.
Love the bunting and the card and it's good to see you here with or without a desk :-)
Hugs,

Love your bunting and love the simplicity of your card, nice for a change, everyone seems to be cramming stuff onto them and it sometimes is a bit much.

Happy crafting

Neet said...

Great bunting - well impressed with that. Lovely card for mum and what's wrong with DH getting a bought card? Bet it cost more than it would had you had time to make one.

The decorating takes time doesn't it..but when you look back, it'll be worth it because it has to last so long!! Love your two cards - what's the wood effect - a stamp I need?
