What's On My Work Desk? Glad you asked!

Good Morning.....My desk doesn't look too productive this morning, but it was buzzing with activity I'll be putting together a few of the items I cut out yesterday. So, here it is....
My friend Brenda came yesterday and she worked on a birthday card for my husband. I'll post that card on Friday, as his birthday isn't until tomorrow. She did a great job and I think surprised herself with her speed....If you knew her, you'd know that she is the queen of perfection and she really struggles to make every card perfect. Her cards are beautiful....

I think I must be hung up on twisted easel cards....I made one for my husband for his BD and yesterday decided to get busy on two of my best friend's husband's cards. I hope they don't mind getting the same card (they don't know each other, so I think it will be ok.)

I made a birthday for my step-granddaughter who is turning 17. I recently purchased Pink Paislee DP and I love, I patterned this card after one I'd seen on the Flourishes blog page. I really liked the corner that was used and personalized the card using my computer and the Tango font. Of course I used Spellbinder dies, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Martha punches and EK Success border punch. ribbon and DP from Karen at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique. I liked how the card turned out, soooooo I made another this time adding Gina K to the mix.This card is for a friend who is having a 17 plus birthday. I hope she doesn't read my blog before Saturday....that's her BD. So, mum is the word...OK?In the past, I've talked about my friend Lynette. She is fighting the battle of her life and I am so proud of her...I've been trying to send cards of encouragement and this is the latest. To this card I used all of the above and added Prima pearls. Please keep Lynette in your prayers....she's one strong woman!

Here's a close up of my buddy's husband's card. I know it's not soooo masculine, but everyone who knows me knows, I make men's cards with flowers. Hey they deserve them too.... I made the flower using BossKut dies and curled the DP to fluff it up a bit....

Well, now you know what I've been up's time to pop on over to Stamping-Ground to see what everyone else has been up to.

Have a great week...see you soon!




  1. Like the twisted easel cards, never come across them before, and I agree, as long as they are done right there is no reason a man can't have flowers.
