Desks and Valentines

Well, it's Wednesday.  Hump Day. VALENTINE'S DAY! Desk day. Desk day???  Yep, today you get a look at my desk and, by visiting Julia at the Stamping Ground, you get the links to many other desks and frequently, great projects!  Today I'll share my desk, the Valentine I made for my hubby, and a couple other Valentine-y things..

My desk is pretty boring.  I just cleaned it from making a couple sample cards for a March class.  I'm not ready to share those yet.  But, my desk and my shadow as I photographed it...  Far left, one of the 2 cards, a package of red & pink pom poms, paper, then dies & stamps sitting on some white card stock.  Middle... nothing but behind the grid paper is a pile of Easter cards I need to package to take to the store where I sell them.  Far right, my OTT light, my ATG adhesive roller, a pile of scraps, and the edge of my Amaze machine.  Yep, boring.  But I will be busy later this morning as I work on 2 more cards so I can advertise my class. And I already have 7 gals signed up!

And now my hubby's card...

I made a Z Fold Box Card.  I taught a class last Friday on how to make this style of card and my 5 gals did an amazing job of decorating their cards! I should have taken pictures but we were having so much fun!

I used all Fun Stampers Journey products to make my card.

Yesterday I helped supply treats to our ladies Bible Study.  I made these candy covered Pretzel rods to celebrate Valentine's Day.  They were a big hit!  Came home with about 10 as the ladies were taking some home to share and save!  What a hoot!

And to celebrate this Love holiday I changed out my pendant (FSJ products) to hearts with a red background. I'll wear it to church tonight, too.

I hope now that you've reached the end of my post that you'll head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the other desks involved in this weekly get together!

Your desk cannot be rated as boring, ever! But it may have a panic've completed March workshop cards and have Easter cards ready! Good grief girl, you are on the ball! The pendant is lovely, so nice to be able to switch stuff in and out. Pretzel rods eh...brilliant idea. Very surprised that you cam back with any to be honest!

Love that card!! I never seem able to get far enough ahead to advertise what cards I am going to make at class, and I NEVER remember to take photos. Could kick myself sometimes. Love the z card fold - my ladies can never believe how easy it is to create something with extra 'wow' that still folds flat!! Happy Wednesday cindy #22
