Desker Wednesday and a Senior Card

aIt's been one of those week.  I'm not normally a drinking person but I've had a few Dr. Pepper sodas this week.  I won't tell you what all has happened but yesterday I did get some good news about a sensor in my car.  Anyway, today is the day I share, along with a bunch of others, a look at my desk in whatever state it is when I grab my camera.  And this view is part of a desker tour de desks put together by head desker, Julia at the Stamping Ground.

I took this picture yesterday mid afternoon as I was working on finishing the last of the kits I need for Friday's "Halloween for the Young at Heart" class.  We'll be making 3 cards and a little treat box.  This is the treat box on my desk.  It's black with a dark orange decorated belly band.

So, there is a pile of stuff on the far left that needs to be put away.  You can see my punch (green and white) just to the front right of my covered Scan N Cut.  Then the start of the kits and my paper trimmer.  To the right is the sample in a plastic box and my Platinum 6 machine.  The back half of my desk never seems to change but you can click on the picture and enlarge it to look.

My other project is a birthday card for our pastor. Tonight we'll be celebrating his 70th birthday.  His wife said it's his 2nd Over the Hill birthday so I went with a fun card.  I used a page from our phone book yellow pages on Assisted Living places.  Oh yeah, I do have a weird sense of humor.

I've had the stamps for AGES! I have no idea where they're from.  I did add the Happy Birthday with a white pen and we'll add our signatures before I put this in an envelope. I think he'll have a good laugh when he sees this.

Now I'm done with my post and I hope you got a laugh from the card.  Please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the other desks involved in this fun desker get together!

That's a clever card Carol and I'm sure your pastor will love it. Genius idea to use a page from an advert for assisted living lol. Have a good week and hope your class goes well. Sarah #2

I love that you are doing Hallowe'en for the young at heart - so many Hallowe'en things these days are full of blood and murder and screams - I have to put up with it every day at work. And soon we will have the Hallowe'en music to go with it. Do kids even dress up as princesses and cowboys anymore? I'm beginning to hate Hallowe'en. I love treat box! Happy 70th to you pastor! Happy fall, have a great week, Lindart #21

Looks as if several of us really appreciate your sense of humour with the card, it’s great. Love the stamps! Sorry you’ve had a rough time lately, and if it drives you to several Dr Pepper drinks, then I accept that things are bad, that stuff tastes like medicine to me! I wish I could pop over and chat over a cuppa, got to be better for you. But maybe you needed the caffeine and sugar hit. Strength to you , girlfriend.
