WOYWW 355 - What's on your Work Desk Wednesday?

Happy WOYWW Everyone!

Now I know that today's photograph looks like it's not that messy - but you can't see what's behind me... disaster, that's what. If you would like to see what us desk stalkers are all about, please check out Julia's amazing blog and say I sent you! 

I was in the process of making my neighbour's daughter a 1st Birthday Card, she's a little cutie and they are lovely people so I thought it would be nice to mark the occasion. 

I tried to break away from my usual layouts and again keeping away from my SLC stamps.  What do you guys think?  I like this layout, I will need to challenge myself to really keep mixing it up a bit. 

The ingredients for my card are as follows:

LOTV Papers
LOTV Stamp coloured with Copics
Ribbon Girl Ribbon
Glitter Paper from Papermania
LOTV Sentiment
Gems are Dovecraft
Button is from my stash
Glitter Glue

Lastly, here is a little up close of my colouring.

I hope you guys are all good, thanks for stopping by my blog, don't forget to comment so I can say hi to you too.  Take care, Lyns xx

That is such a cute card and I'm sure the parents will adore it - first birthdays are so special aren't they?! It's a lovely image too, cartoony but not too much so.
And your doggy header makes me smile each time I see it :-D
Hugs, LLJ 1 xx

Now that is such a pretty card and I am sure will be well received. I wish my desk was as tidy as yours...... so much clutter on my desk and yet I still haven't moved anything. I just crop the photo. ha ha.

Pretty card. One I'd keep in the baby book, for sure. Stray is doing fine. Hoping to move her to the shelter by Tuesday next week. In the mean time, my wreath card post for today did not go up. Next week. Creative Blessings! Kelly #49
