WOYWW What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday??

Hi All,

Another weekly snap of my desk for you. This week I am on with a card which I have been asked to make, the request was a card that is teacher themed, for a lady who will be 60 and has been a teacher all of her working life, I decided to try and go with a blackboard theme for the message, it's been a bit of a head scratcher but I think it's coming together now.

Anyone who stopped by last week may recall I was part way through a football card which I wasn't too happy with, well I ended up changing the design on that one, there's photo's of the finished card in my last post if you want to take a peek to see how it turned out.

There's a few little bits and pieces towards the left hand side of my desk that I picked up at the Summer Crafting Show at Doncaster Racecourse on Saturday, some buttons, a little tag punch and some binding rings, I also picked up some Crafts Too Mister bottles and a snowflakes embossing folder and also a 12 x 12 cardstock stack but that's on the floor out of the way! Didn't spend any where near as much as I expected at the show, £23.75 to be precise! what a poor effort that was!!! it was so busy though you could hardly get to see any of the stalls! Bit of a shame really. there's still a few bits hanging around on my desk from last week that haven't moved or been used, such as the Cuttlebug alphabet dies and my silver charms, need to find a home for those!

Think that's about it for this week, I'll be over at Julia's later to visit some desks. Thanks for stopping by.

You were quite restrained at Doncaster, well done!
Your card is really imaginative and I'm sure it will be perfect.
Thanks for visiting me,
Love JoZarty x
Baker's twine is in the post BTW.

I think that card is very clever - a good combination of teacherly order and feminine flower. I'm sure she'll love it! xx

Pretty card! Viewing the WOYWW desks makes me want to just go to everyone's house and spend a few minutes creating something at their craft table!

I really like your card and am sure that the recipient will. Apart from 4years out when ihad my children I taught from leaving school myself until I retired (early) five years ago. I clocked up 30 years and I would love that card(smile) Anne x

Seems like we all share the same craft "clutter" around our desks. :-) Your card looks like it is coming along well.

You've become a sophisticated consumer, no panic buying of trends! Good for you! Love the card in progress - v clever! Do you use wet glue all the time or just for the flowers?

That is such a great card, love the black board idea. At least you got some things that you wanted at Doncaster, better than buying everything in site!
