Hello, everyone! I'm back! What's on Your Workdesk? #211

Wedding #2 is now over--it was lovely and romantic, despite the rain.  
As you can probably imagine, I made a few things for the occasion, and
will be sharing some of them with you, the first being the wedding favors.
Both the bride and groom love the outdoors and nature, so these birdseed
cakes, made to hang from a tree, seemed a great idea.  They're not difficult
to make, but they are quite messy.  The most fun was stamping the little muslin
bags to hold them, using the little lovebirds from the new Rogue Redhead
Designs plate, This N' That.  (It's on sale until tomorrow, just saying. :)

They were pleased with how the favors turned out, and I heard lots
of nice comments about them, so now we just have to wait and see
what the birds think . . . what are you working on this summer?  I've
been away so long, it's going to be a while before I catch up with
everyone--see you soon!  :)
 I'm sharing this post over at:
What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday?--I'm excited to visit my woyww friends!
Word Art Wednesday--they have  free word art for you, and lots of it!
Frilly and Funkie, since their latest challenge is birds and nests.

Not very many, Krisha--only ten or so--we're calling them "squirrel cookies" now, and I saved the muslin bags for little gifties.
