My desk is not too messy only a few stamps left out that need to be cleaned!
I decided to play along with Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday this week. I hope you like my card and what's on my desk....I actually made a card this week. Woo Hoo! I am on a roll.
It is a birthday card for my manager's birthday on Friday. I made this cardbase about a year ago when I first got my Janome Sew Mini Sewing Machine.... I was cleaning up a bit over the weekend and found this and a few other cardbases so I decided to use it. I thought the colors were dark enough that I could use it for a card for a man. I hope he likes it! While making my card, I learned a little something that I never noticed before. Distress ink does not play nicely with my clear stamps! I must have tried stamping the sentiment 4 times before I realized it was the ink and not me or the stamp. I finally tried again with Memento ink and got a perfectly clear image.

Stamps: Tiddly Inks digi, Inkadinkadoo Cardstock and Paper: Stampin' Up Crushed Curry, PTI Stampers Select White, Paper and random yellow cardstock from stash... Ink and Accessories: Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink, Memento Rich Cocoa dew drop, Janome Sew Mini, Making Memories Buttons, Martha Stewart Foam Dots, Ric Rac and rhinestone from stash, Copics: BG000, BG05, BG07, E40-E43, E50-E53, Y000, Y13, Y15
