Here we are again. It is late on Tuesday night and I have just cleared away my desk so I could do this post before I go to bed. But I took this photo first so you can see I really was doing something!
We have been invited to a friend's 70th birthday on Saturday, and it is also her wedding anniversary so I have two cards to make in a hurry. I want her birthday card to be a bit special so I am just trying out a few ideas before I get started on it. The three big fat folders are full of stamps on foam mount. One folder is Corners, Flourishes and Swirls, one is Floral and the third is Words. On the top of the pile is my magnetic storage for large or long dies, and I've chosen a few that I will probably be working with. Then there are some of my memento ink pads, a rocker-block for the stamps, and some trial runs done on scrap paper. Now I have a fair idea of what I am going to do, so next time I can get stuck in straight away.
A certain little puss-cat, Arwen by name, has suddenly got tired of her throne on the printer - it is probably a bit warm - and she has taken to lying on my desk in direct line with my fan instead, so tonight she is very peeved as she got sent off so I had somewhere to work. She is sitting on the floor glaring at me! Yesterday she went to the vets where she was given an anesthetic so they could shave her, (she is not friendly enough to do it while she is awake). She was very woozy and wobbly for the rest of the day, and hasn't yet forgiven me for depriving her of food! But she is actually much more comfortable in the summer without all that fur, so she will soon get over it and be quite amiable for a while. I always ask them to leave her fluffy on her face, feet and tail so now everyone calls her a 'poodle-cat'. I think she looks rather sweet.
Right now I am off to bed, and in the morning I will link this up to Julia's Stamping Ground. If you would like to see what everyone else has on their workdesk this Wednesday, follow me over there and see for yourself.
