What's on your Workdesk? Wednesday 196

Its Wednesday!  Time to hop around the world and see what is going on with everyone's desks! If you are wondering what on earth I am talking about, then pop over to Julia's Place and all will be explained!


No crafting going on at the moment.  I went to Farnborough Make It show on Friday and my desk is covered with my new stash!  I had a fabulous day and managed to pick up a good variety of stuff.  I emptied my bag and just heaped everything on my desk and there it has stayed.  This afternoon I hope to sort it all out and play!  Last week I had the elements for my Husband's birthday card on my desk so I thought I would show you the finished card.


The image is a picture I found on the internet and is Miles Davis.  The trumpet is from Tando Creative and I coloured it with Brushed Pewter Distress Stain.  The background card is stamped with a little stamp I have had for ages, I can't remember which make, its stamped with black Versafine and embossed with clear powder and the silver embossing is done with the Spellbinders M-bossibilities Music folder.

Thank you for visiting my desk - have a good day and take care.  Christine xx

We love to leave new stash on the desk for a few days before using it. It's almost as nice to admire it as it is to create with it. Love your card by the way.

Waving hi from the house of bears @#80 this week.

OOh you did well at Farnborough. I was there on Friday and the only thing I brought was a cup of coffee! Couldn't get in the swing of it, so just cruised around chatting to anyone I knew!

awesome desk with all that fun stash! Love the Miles Davis card. I keep seeing stamps and folders from the UK I would love to have but postage is way too high to have them shipped over. Thanks for dropping by and visiting at my desk! I enjoyed getting a peak at your projects and looking yours! Have a great week. Vickie #11
