What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #493

Two weeks in a row. What's going on here?!

My desk hasn't seen any action since Sunday, when I had a little photo shoot.  Removing the table cloth and trying to make the most of the natural light from the kitchen window. White on white is so difficult to capture.

I've got a new embossing folder that gives the card stock a very subtle texture and I've been using it on all my card mats. Gives the background a little lift.

Here's the card that I shared a close up of last week. Still can't capture that glitter!

Linking up with Julia and the Deskers this sunny morning. Back to the hospital with Mum this afternoon, after a bit of a cock up yesterday. Thank you to everyone who visited last week. I'll try to do better at returning them today.


  1. Beautiful cards. I am so tempted to get that set of snowflake dies ...after all I do live in an area that gets lots of snow so it would get lots of scrap page layout use! In your wreath card I do see some glitter.

  2. Hi Fiona, that card is lovely, and the embossing folder is fab. Gives a lovely texture, without dominating the card. I take it it's an SU? I agree that getting sparkle to show in photos is almost impossible. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #9 X

  3. Afternoon Fiona. It does indeed seem like a long while since we communicated by WOYWW - but it's good to see you today. I've been away with family, so absent for three weeks - but you seem to be well in the swing of Christmas. I love the white on white card - and yes, that embossing folder gives a lovely effect.
    Hope all goes well with your mum.
    Take care. God bless.

  4. I like that embossed background, it's very subtle but enhances the card. I do like your style, elegant and not fussy! Hope all goes better with your mum today.

  5. What lovely cards - I especially love the second one. Hope the hospital trip is more successful today.

  6. Beautiful cards, Fiona. That's a brilliant idea to subtle emboss the background, think I may have to steal that idea!
    Hope all goes better with your Mam
    Take care

  10. Hi Fiona, hope the hospital appointment went ok. Your pictures have reminded me I bought a large snowflake die ... now where did I put it! I like the subtle texture from the embossing folder. Have a lovely week Heather x #13

  11. Gorgeous cards Fiona, love them to bits. Have a great woyww, Angela x16x

  12. Both cards are lovely, but the snowflake card is stunning!

  13. I love that little texture on the first card, makes the card pop! Happy, belated, woyww. Enjoy your week. Hug from Holland, Marit #20
