What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #261

Is it really a whole week since I last blogged? Darn you exam season, for sucking the life out of me right now! Nearly there and then we can all breathe again.

Oh look, it’s my *actual* desk. Now you can see why I’ve been showing you the kitchen table of late. This has become a dumping ground, for whatever I’ve just finished with. Class planning, card and box samples and ATC making.*

Here’s one of today’s class offerings. Everyone is always pleased to see a masculine card among the samples. Is there anyone who doesn’t struggle with these? I love these tiny stamps with their vintage feel.

A prettier version, made for my eldest niece, to wish her well on a year long adventure in Australia. We made this as an easel card in class and changed it up a bit to include a Happy Birthday sentiment. Why are easel cards so tricky to get a good shot of? I gave up and shared this one instead!

And finally, a little matching gift box. The sun was out, for about five minutes, so I took my chance with the camera. That’s it from me. My girl will be home any minute. Pop over to Julia’s to see what the rest of the deskers have been up to. I’ll be round to visit this evening.

I'm so impressed that you managed to use the same stamps for a male's card and an female's card. Both are really clever.

Guess I'm # 13 this week and happy WOYWW.

These are gorgeous cards Fiona, I love how you made a male/female card from the same supplies...very clever. I do like the look of your desk, the one that has become a dumping ground. It looks just like mine! I once read that all you really need from a desk is a space the size of the paper you are working on! That's been me of late. I notice you make ATC's What do you do with them? I keep mine in a folder..not very imaginative.

Shaz Silverwolf suggested that you might be able to help Debbie (Tattered Rocks) and me. We are both looking for the large Stampin' Up Swallowtail Butterfly rubber stamp. Please, can you tell us where to get it. If I had a choice I would choose a see through stamp, but if there is no choice, then I would take whatever is available. Hope to hear from you. xx Maggie
