Hi there! Guess what day it is...again? Wednesday! Time for What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday at I tried to cheat first and only take (somewhat of) a close-up but then I felt like it wasn't fair to the rest of those who are showing the "real thing" for this challenge.

As you can see, I've been working on two cards and preparing to work on another. The card with the birdcages was created in part several months ago, but I wasn't sure how to finish it until yesterday. I had to get a sentiment on there, so I added a piece of vellum with Thanks So Much that was heat-embossed in white. Because it's vellum, you can see some of the background patterned paper. This paper was a gift from my former sister-in-law a couple of years ago. I feel it is so special I can't waste any of it; therefore, I only use it on special cards. I love this Stampin Up! Aviary set. I used to have a pet parakeet, and the images remind me of that period of my youthful life.

The card with the hearts is for a color challenge at The Outlawz. We were to use Purple, Pink and Turquoise. I added some black for the hearts and some of the elements. I added a large brad for the "O" in Love at the bottom of the card. The Washi Tape matches the button.

All the inks that are out are for my next card, which will be a Birthday card for a male. I like the colors of brown and blue together for a guy, so I pulled out the inks to get ready for that. Wish me luck! (The red ink? Why is it out? I just seem to be reaching for it frequently, so I leave it out most of the time.)

You can tell what the rest of the stuff is. I really didn't mean for the cards to be the focus, but looking at those is better than looking at the rest of the mess around it!

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate your visits and comments VERY much! Take it easy and have a good day!


  1. Super cards...I love the bird houses and I often don't complete cards until something inspires me to. The heart card would work with "Wild Thing" as a sentiment.
