Hope everyone is well this fine What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!

This week my desk is looking pretty untidy but I assure you it's all in the name of creativity :o) got a couple of cards on the go which is never good for the organisation of my desk. I will post the cards once they are finished, the Baby one will hopefully be posted later today as it's very nearly done.

You will see some Pebbles chalks, I have just got these so am just having a little go with them, I struggle a little getting my backgrounds of stamped / digi stamp images to look right if I use my Promarkers so decided to give chalks a go for a softer finish. There are a couple of Nesties which I've been using for the Baby card sentiments, along with some inks which I've been using with the Nesties to sponge a bit of colour onto the setiment tags. the usual stuff is pushed to the back of my desk, regular viewers will notice this "stuff" rarely changes, I really need to find a place to put it!

Think that's about it for this week, have a good day, I'll be calling in at Julia's later on today to pay a few visits.

Lovely cards. Must get my chalks out. Haven't used them in ages !

I know what you mean about finding space to put things. :) I need everything handy so it's rarely they are where they should be but I just throw everything in a clear box to "tidy up" and for my dogs not to chew up expensive stuff. :))

Oh there are parts of my desk that never change...even the parts that should often don't! Chalks are in my 'to be dusted off' pile, so wil be interested to read about how you get on with them.

You're the second person I've come across today using chalks - I think I might get mine out again soon. x Hazel 130

Interesting desk. I might give my chalks a go...and I like Colorbox chalk inks too for some backgrounds on gloss paper. I quite like the back of my desk to stay as it is. I have things there that I want in view to remind me they exist.
Take care,
Ros. (140)

Have never really got into chalks, even though I have a set, should probably give them another go. Pretty cards on show and I like that Nestie shape, don't think I've seen that one before, but then again, there are so many these days!

What a great looking desk, those cards I can spot look absolutely gorgeous. I haven't had those chalks out for ages, not even sure where they are. What a great idea to use them for backgrounds. I'll have to have a hunt for them now.
Happy WOYWW.
