WOYWW163 - My new best friend

It's time to peek at all the workdesks around the world via Julia's Stamping GroundI thought I'd give you a wide view of my room this week (while it's mostly clean!)

The center island has drawers that hold my ribbons.  It;s also where I pack and prepare to ship my Etsy store orders.  More about that later!

The big black cabinet was found at Goodwill a few years ago before I had the other pieces.  My DH made 
shelves for the inside and I painted it black. 

Thought I'd introduce you to my new best friend.


Sorry for the grainy photo it's a mirror shot.  I'm hoping this big boy and physical therapy (starts tomorrow) will keep me from knee replacement surgery.

Hubby is off tomorrow so I probably won't get around to see many desks until  later.  Don't forget about the post here.  wink, wink!

LaCoste Inspired

Welll, rats..I missed the deadline for the Runway Inspired Challenge ric #15, (drat that knee!) but I had this card in my head and it needed to come out. 

Here's the challenge photo anyway so you can see if I hit it or not.  :-)

I used a shoe and sentiment from Rubbernecker Stamps fun Hat, Shoe and Purses line.  I chose Papertrey's Soft Stone as my base to pick up the grey in the suit and khaki for the shoes.  The shoe design was made with Papertrey's older Faux Ribbon set.  I stamped the shoe, masked the flower, then stamped the stripes and cut it out.  It's popped on the card with foam tape.

I had a bottle of tiny beads that I picked up on clearance a couple of years ago.  Love those clearance buys!  A bit of glue on the flower holds them on nicely. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to check in here for "you know what"!  ;-)
