What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #373

Hello. It's been over a month since I showed you my kitchen table. How very remiss of me. The party is now back at Julia's place, after a few weeks of being capably hosted by the lovely Jan.

























This was the scene yesterday afternoon. I was making a batch of cards using my new Jar of Love stamps and dies. It started to rain before I had a chance to take any photos.

























Instead I'll show you the card I gave Darnell, when I had the good fortune to meet up with her (along with Jan, Julia and Morti) last week. What a lovely afternoon and evening we had. I never imagined the connections I would make when I started this little blog of mine. On Friday, I'm off to London to make some more. Can't wait.

Love the watery feel to this, and how you've used the same paper/card for the background and the jar. The little pops of orange against them are perfect. Yes, aren't blog friendships great?

It was a fun time meeting Darnell - I don't think we drew breath for six hours! A trip to London sounds fun - what are you getting up to there? And I love the card you made me, it's on the piano along with one from Shaz Silverwolf :-D

Jars are currently a favourite of mine - I have just bought about 4 different jar related sheets of paper. I like your fish card - ties in with the Finding Dory movie.

A really lovely card - and I'm loving your backgrounds too, I really like this splashy one! Great photos of your day in Salisbury, it looks like you had a fab time - WOYWW has certainly brought so many people together.

Missus Wookie said...

I do like those stamps - and adding the goldfish is perfect :)

Neet said...

I so wish I could just travel around and meet people like you have. Did visit Darnell's Knutsford meet but I don't think there were any names I recognised from woyww.
Love that jar - what a fab idea and perfect for capturing Crazy Birds in (my latest craze).
Hugs, and thanks for the visit to mine earlier
