What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #220

Here we are again on this desk sharing day of the week and again I have failed to blog in between. Anyone would think it was the school holidays. No desk shot today. We’ve been out and about on day trips and plugging away at the front of the house. I’ve found time for a few quick projects in the evenings once dinner is cleared.

First up a Thank You card to send to our Queen of Desks…..

P1020918-001

…..gift card holders for a couple of Birthday girls…..

P1020922

…..and the note book I mentioned last week, made for Gemma, obviously!

It came together quite quickly and I felt like I hadn’t put much effort in so I made a matching book mark to go with it. I stamped another piece of card for the back cover.

We’re off to the cinema today. As yet undecided between Despicable Me 2 and Monsters University. I’ll be round to visit this evening.

Sounds like you're having fun. We're having a quiet holiday, lots of chilling. Not been far or done much but my boy wants to have a good rest (he has CFS) before he starts his GCSE's in September. Fab makes I do love that script stamps and it just shows how versatile it is. I'm loving SU stuff at mo. Take care Zo xx 93
