what's on your workdesk? Wednesday . . .again!

(In the mood for some candy?--you can find it HERE!)

Last week went by far too quickly, eeeeeyah.


What's on my workdesk? Some awesome border stamps from
Lost Coast Designs, available at Blockheads.. My favorite right
now is this

tear drop border. I'm not very good at clean and simple, but thought
this was really fine embossed in black. Kind of art deco looking?

Have to admit, I'm looking forward to a good snoop to see what's
on YOUR workdesk! Thank you to Julia for being a wonderful
hostess for this weekly event. I think I got around to everyone
who left a comment in last week's round, but if not, will try and
track you down--better late than never!

:)

Okay, PS--the tin is full of embossing powders, didn't even think
to open it, just took a pic of what was there, you know?

Another PS--fixed the border link, sorry about that, I'm terrible
about checking before posting--thank you for the heads up. For only
$2 or $3, it IS really hard to resist these!

Hi Leslie! I see your secret messages Trisha, I wanna join in!! I like the border very much...try it on an orange card and I think it will speak of North Africa and the Casbah...so very versatile..clever design. And how could you not prop the tin open so we could all see?!!

My desk is back showing its true colours. I like the look of the border strips, but I would just lose them.

That is a lovely border but it is your tin that my eye was drawn to - wonderfully shabby.

Love that border design and it does look fabulous embossed in black. I have quite a few LCD stamps and borders, but I don't have that one! Enjoy!

It is a lovely border .... and great colours...

MaggieC said...

That black border on that colour looks really rich and opulent. I hope you show us the final result. Never mind showing you the rest of my desk, the floor is getting into dire straits again. A good tidy up is called for, I think. Thank you for your visit earlier and have a good week. xx Maggie #2

The border stamp is fab, just my style. I thought the tin was full of cash. . . to buy stash. Opps sorry about the rhyming
