What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday? Week 86

I've been looking agog at so many other crafters' workdesks for more Wednesdays than I can remember. So, finally it's time to stop being timid, be brave and dip a toe in the water to join in the fun!

First up is what seems like a really clear space. I cleared other stuff away - how good is that - before showing my first kind of serious attempt at a style of card  which is totally outside my little comfort zone.  I loved making this though, playing with some distressing inks and such and what's even better is that it's easier to hide any mistakes.....err, don't look TOO closely 'cos I made a couple at least :)


And this is how those of us with  no fine gizmos probably improvise to take piccies of what we've produced. Aha, and my wonderful ATG Gun that Santa brought me is also in shot (I just love how much easier and quicker it is to use than DST although other glues and of course Ultra Strong DST are still in use).
That's my ever present mug of coffee - Piglet in pink (my fave colour!).

A close up of the card wot I made - told you not to look TOO closely. The background on the card itself is stamped but taking piccies in this light is seriously not easy!

And finally, in case you think it's all too orderly for me to join in the fun of WOYWW, this is SOME of the rest of my mess! And it's very tidy for me....a bit like first day at school when you have a tidy satchel :)


Right, I'm off to have my weekly nosey round everyone else's workdesks!! You can join me for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW), hosted by the lovely Julia, here http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/  :)

Thank you so much for joining my blog. It means so much.

Suddenly realised that I had not left a comment on your desk. By the way, you need to understand something vital. It is not a mistake, it is just your variation on the theme, making the design truly your own. (That is what I am telling myself about my latest parchment card. I have changed the design a lot.) Never admit to a mistake.
