WOYWW - What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!

Hi All,

Hope you are all well. This week you may look at my desk think I've not been up to much at all as the card that was in mid flow last week is still in the process of being completed! BUT actually I have been quite busy crafting, I have made 2 cards since last WOYWW which is quite alot for me :o) one is the Father's Day card in my previous post and the other a Strawberry one, which I will be posting tomorrow. I had got a bit stuck on this "Mum" one as we couldn't settle on a verse that really stood out to my friend for her Mum and you know these Mum cards have to be just right, however now we have found the perfect one and it's under way again and will be finished very soon, will post when it's done.

You will see I have been putting my chalks to good use, and my lovely Mum very kindly picked a great selection of ribbon up from her local market so that's the brown paper bag at the back of my desk, the pink ribbon I am using is from the selection. My one and only set of Nesties is out ready to cut the verse out for the card! And my ever faithful Collall glue.... on that subject if anyone knows a "cheap" place to get Collall Photo glue from I'd be interested to know, I get mine from Joanna Sheen which is a pretty good price really but I'm always on the look out for bargains!

I'm looking forward to having a snoop round some desks this week over at Julia's to see what PiF's have been arriving with participants.... I didn't have the time or inspiration to participate so I don't have one to show, but have already got my thinking cap on for next year and am determined to take part! That's all for this week. Thanks for visiting :o)

I haven't used chalks for ages, although I did have a go with tinted charcoals recently on holiday - not the best place to do it. I had to be so careful how I stored it to get it back home to seal it. That is a very pretty card for your friend's Mum.

Pretty card - get you with the proper chalk tools...I don't think I could even lay my hands on my chalks, let alone the little sponges! Bet you'll have more than one set of nesties by the end of the summer!

Great desk - aren't those I.kan.dee chalks just the best? Thanks for stopping by!

You've reminded me that I have that very same set of chalks but I hardly ever think to use them. Maybe I should!

Sorry I'm late popping over, but better late than never!
