WOYWW 24/3

Hay peeps, sorry i'm late this week, had an old friend over to visit with her 2 strapping young boys of 3 and 5 bouncing all over the place.. which was fun lol
I have a little confession for Julia & the WOYWW'ers..
 This isn't actually a pic of my desk as it is today, I work shifts for the first part of the week so its very rare that you will ever see a messy desk on a wednesday....Soooooo i took a shot of things mid flow on a project last thursday/friday...
As you can see i have a bit of, well, everything out lol
The reason for the mess... The blue and orange piece you see was an attempt to make a Wendy Vecchi style project.. but without the use of any of her stamps as i dont own any.
Please note i said 'attempt'...I figured some of my fabby Artistic Stamper backgrounds would give me a great base to start, which they did but then it all went pear shaped, I just couldn't get her style no mater what i did..and believe me i tryed... for 2 days i tryed!
And then i gave up and made some cards instead.
I used the same inky background as mentioned in yesterdays card.
But todays stamps are the stunning window from the Architecture plate
A very cool jumbled letters from the Family Values plate and a couple of dog style tags from the alphabet and tags plate
I found it a little hard not to keep adding to this card as it seems so plain but i know anything else on it would just make it look fussy so it is what it is.
Thanks for stopping by x

Well my pear shaped stuff never results in cards as good looking as that - it's fab. Your desk look great, and no need for a confession - it really doesn't matter what or when, but Wednesday is just the day to show it!

I always take my desk photos at the weekend, so I don't think it matters. Great desk as usual, love all the ink and great stamps on that card.
