What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #254

Still a mess, but at least I have removed the top layer, of sewing related stuff, and it’s just the paper crafting gubbins that’s left behind. Mostly the off cuts from kitting for classes and making Easter treats for nieces and nephews.

The eagle eyed among you may have spotted the Love Hearts, towards the middle of the desk, otherwise not much of interest. I taught a class this morning and the boxes of crafting goodies are all underneath, waiting to be unpacked….tomorrow.

This was our twenty minute card today. A tried and tested design, you will have seen me use before in other forms. We don’t need to reinvent the wheel every time.

Keeping it short for today. I’ll be back on Friday with a quick tutorial for the Easter treats I’ve made this year. Off to check on the other desk hoppers at Julia’s place.

PS. For those who showed an interest in my sewing project last week, you can read all about it here.

What an adorable card. I can never seem to make simple ones that look good. But that design could be the base of so many variations. Love it.
Better late than never :)
Happy WOYWW!

What a lovely little card - no need for anything else on it - great! Been to peek at your sewing, Fiona. Beautifully neat. Will we be allowed to see it modelled when all is finished?
Have a special Easter.

Andrea said...

great card I love its simplicity i really like the font for the sentiment it is so pretty.Although I'm no good with simple as it need to be perfect which your is ..me and straight lines dont mix well my attempts would be wonky hence why I do lots of layer lol..distracts from the interesting angles !. hope you have a great Easter weekend Andrea #24

Julia Dunnit said...

I agree about the card formula...although I haven't actually seen this 'recipe' on your blog before...maybe it's the way you interpret it so well. like the colour of the dotty papers for this, really fresh.

Sweet card, and at least there is lots of potential in that collection on your desk.
