What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #443

November is a month with five Wednesdays, which finds me with no class and a little breathing space this week.

























Yesterday I completed a few cards for upcoming birthdays. I always get more requests at this time of year. The selection of birthday cards in the shops diminishes as Christmas approaches.

























I'll leave you with this matching set we made in class a couple of weeks ago.

Linking up with Julia and the Deskers on this frosty morning.

Good, I'm glad you've got a chance to stop and catch a breath. What a lovely card you've made and that matching set is so elegant and simply beautiful. Love it! I know it's a common technique but I do love it when stamped images go off the edges :-D

Lovely cards and interesting observations! Indeed this is the 5th Wednesday this month - I never thought about it - and I also never noticed that there are fewer birthday cards on offer at this time of year - but it makes sense! Thanks so much for visiting earlier, Fiona! Have a lovely week! zsuzsa #24
