This is a quick one for a change as I am actually in the mood to be crafting and with a deadline to meet, that is a good thing.
The items I was working on last week all had to be put on hold when I learned that a lovely couple from my church are about to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary. Of course my first thought was to make them a card. So I had just started on that when I had an e-mail inviting us to a surprise party for them on Saturday, along with a request for me to make a card for everyone at the party to sign (about 30 I think), so now I have two cards to finish for Saturday. That sounds like plenty of time, but with our thermometer registering 38 degrees on our shady porch this week - goodness knows what it is out in the sun - I have to work in the early morning or the evening as I can't touch any of the papers when I am so hot.
So here is my desk on Tuesday evening.
I have turned to the lovely Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose set of stamps and dies again, this time working in yellows and browns. My copic markers are out as usual when I am working, and on the left is my set of Coloursoft pencils. On top of them is one of my folders of magnetic sheets to hold dies. Then there's a couple of ink pads and a messy, inky sponge, my copic pen colour chart, and an empty tea mug. Tea is still my drink of choice. Even on the hottest days it is more refreshing than anything else. In the background is a grumpy Arwen, ousted from her desk again, and sulking by the window. I had better get on and move my work because she'll be back and sitting on it, the minute I take my eyes off her.
Do visit our lovely hostess Julia over at her Stamping Ground if you would like to see what other crafter's are up to this week. I shall be linking up with them first thing tomorrow morning.
