What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday???

Hello All! well this week finds me finishing off my Mum's Mothersday card, it's taken me an age, but it's now almost done :o) There's oodles of glamour dust on it but you can't see that in the photo.

You will  see I have finally crumbled and given into the tempation of 'Distress Ink', my lovely Mum has treated me to an ink pad and tool which I have been umming and ahhring over buying for a while, I have got one for now just to have a try, vintage photo, as I will use that colour most for aging papers but I'm sure I will end up with more :o)

The cards I was working on last week are propped up at the back, they really need to go in the post pronto!

That's about all this week, I'll be hopping over to Julia's later to see some desks, have a lovely day x

What a pretty card! And lots of good things on your desk too. I'm still on the fence about those distress inks myself. I have a few of them and like what people do with them.
