Workdesk and a Cross

It's that day again.... Hump Day... Middle of the Week..... Workdesk Day...  Yep, it Wednesday and the day I share my desk with you along with links to oodles of other desks all joined together through Julia of the Stamping Ground!

My picture was taken midday yesterday as I started working on a new project.

I'm starting on a wedding card using a complicated Spellbinders die set. I have a card I received on my desk to help me figure out how to assemble. I hope to finish this card this week.  The wedding is May 4 so I do have some time.  I'll share a picture or the link when it is completed.

And along with my desk I do have a project to show you!  I finally got my cool Birch Press Design Nativity Star layered dies.  I purchased the set of 4 and here's my first card...

I used a variety of papers and the cross center is made from a pearled paper.

Look at all those layers!  It was a bit challenging gluing these together and I was all done when I remembered my Zig glue pen...  well, duh!  I need to use this die set more as it was pretty pricey but I did make an Easter card which will be shared Friday.

I hope you head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the links to the others who are brave enough to share their desks! Maybe we'll meet somewhere on the web!

Love the layered star on that card Carol. The zig pen would definitely make it easier to assemble. Good luck with the wedding card. HappyWOYWW. Sarah #2

Lovely stuff Carol, that layered star has loads of uses and potential, so I expect it will become a good investment purchase in the end! Good luck with the wedding card. My word you do give yourself a project!
