Well, if I didn’t know any better, I’d suspect that my friend, Jo and I had been colluding – but we didn’t and my desk’s much messier than hers – and the worst thing is I’ve been working on the dining room table this afternoon cos of the mess!!  In all honesty, I’d just piled some stuff on the desk as I’d finished with it, so it’s waiting to be put away.  Anyway,  here’s my WOYWW entry.

Here’s a close up where you can see one of my favourite stamps…
Queen of Last Minute!

But the main reason it may appear that Jo and I had been plotting was that I had to make a couple of Sympathy cards today, too!  Nothing fancy about mine, though.  They’re very simple, quick and very easy (hands won’t allow much else at the moment) made with felt tips, glossy paper and a favourite PSX stamp.  One on white, the other on lilac.

Oh you girls make me feel better. I can't work up the nerve to show my chaos, but I see I am in good company. That's the price of being a creative person....right? (LOL)

A woman after my own heart...a bit of mess never hurt anyone!
I spy maybe a tag with one of Jo Capper-Sandons stamps on? Do we get a better look of that soon!
Your sympathy cards are very elegant and classicly styled.

I just love looking at desks just like mine! Great sympathy cards :)

Julia Dunnit said...

Both cards are gorgeous, amazing the difference the final card colour makes. Loving rumaging round your desk this morning...only reason mine doesn't look the same is that my stamp shelves are within arm's reach!

I love that crown stamp. Queen of Last Minute seems appropriate for my comment, too. Sorry I'm so late getting here. It's been a full week, just like your desk! Happy beLATEd WOYWW.
