Desks and Snowflakes

We have had quite a cold snap lately with some hard freezes.  I have sensitive plants covered and hopefully they'll be ok.  We even got snow on our mountain here in southern AZ and snow north and east of us!  So, since today is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday I decided to show a snowflake tag I made for our grandson's Christmas gift.  Yep, I'm a bit late getting it mailed but I forgot to put it in the package I mailed over a week ago!  Oops!  And if you don't know about weekly desker day, please click on the WOYWW page button when you head over to Julia's blog, the Stamping Ground, when you finish here.

My desk shows the wrapped gift to the far left, the snowflake medallion stamp next to it, and the tag sitting on the spot where I work.  I've yet to sign the back and have just added the string to hang (if the son and daughter-in-law decide to to that).  My desk is a bit messy but for me it's almost tidy.

And here's the tag.  I used 5 different card stocks and lots of Silver embossing powder to make this.  I spent a lot of time fussy cutting, too.

Here's a close up of the center.  I added a silver sequin and a blue rhinestone to finish it out.  I think it looks great!  The stamp was made by Holly Berry House and I've had it and a few others for MANY years!  This one is called "Snowflake in Bloom."  I looked it up and it is still available for purchase!

Well, I'm done for today.  I hope you enjoyed seeing my work spot and tag.  Please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the other desks and projects to celebrate today.  I'll be visiting if my internet is nice.  I have a technician coming Monday as our lines outside the house are being very wonky and sometimes it works and most times it doesn't. Yesterday I had internet in the morning then, poof!  Nothing for the rest of the day.  This morning I have it so headed out to visit until it poofs again.

I totally love the Holly Berry medallion stamps. I've not seen this one before. It is wonderful! Now I want to get out my medallion stamps and play. I'm sure the boss won't mind. Ha, ha.

Hi Carol, gorgeous snowflake. Your desk looks pretty tidy to me but what would I know, don't think I can remember what a tidy desk looks like!

Happy WOYWW. What a beautiful tag. It looks like it was a lot of fiddly cutting. Ali x #13

Very pretty, Sistah! We have no snow in Menominee, Michigan. That is very unusual.

I would have been by sooner, especially after your nice comment on my desk and gifts, but my life took a major meltdown yesterday when my washing machine hose broke. After I got all the water and mess cleaned up, I was off to buy a new hose and install it.

I was really impressed with your snowflake tag. It is truly elegant and rich. You fussy cut well, too. I couldn't emboss if my life depended on it, unless it's to spread the EP all over the card (grin).

Happy belated WOYWW from #1.

What a beautiful medallion! I haven't seen this one before. You did a magnificent job there. I know, it is a lot of work but the result is stunning!
Thank you for visiting me earlier,
A belated happy WOYWW,

What a stunning tag, Carol - beautiful - and yes, a lot of cutting. But so effective. Your desk looks just fine to me, active and ready for use!
Thanks for visiting and for your comments and prayers.
Take care. God bless.

What a beautiful snowflake! But, hang on, wait a minute, it looks familiar. I reckon I've got the same one stashed here ... somewhere :)
