what's on your workdesk? Wednesday, #169

Some Rogue Redhead and Our Daily Bread stamps, making a card
for my friend Sharon's birthday:
Some hand made paper flowers, those are from book pages, and
some velvet Prima leaves and baubles, too.

Here is the finished card closed:
Rogue Redhead "Milliner Misses" plate

And here it is open:
The patterned papers are from an 8x8 paper pack I received as a gift from
the oldest son's girlfriend.  Well, okay, she WAS his girlfriend--now she's
his fiance!

And that's what's happening here--I am little late joining the fun this week,
but will still have a good blog snoop later on at Julia's.   If you leave me a
comment, I will be sure to come snoop at YOUR workdesk, too!

:)
Challenges:
Rogue Redhead Designs--use at least one square, circle, and rectangle
Word Art Wednesday--use any uplifting sentiment or verse
House That Stamps Built--flowers, stamped or otherwise
Simon Says Stamp--anything goes!

I DID make them myself, so very easy! Used this method: Super Simple Roses

trisha too said...

EXCEPT that the paper was so thin, I didn't need to do the dampening part, so it was even EASIER!
