Good Morning Friends!
It's Wednesday again. It comes round so quickly. My desk has ATCs on it and as we are going to exchange those soon, I cannot show them. If anyone would like to exchange with me next week, I have a few spare. Please contact me and we can sort out snail mail addresses.
Here is my desk (with the ATCs covered by some paper and postcards):
I took the picture last night before going to bed and then I noticed I had left an envelope with my address clearly written on it for the world to see. So with my sleepy head I bravely opened Photoshop this morning and figured out how to erase the address.
The red book is a traveling notebook which has started in Australia in October and has already visited several countries. I was asked to share some recipes. So I will cook paella this week and take a picture to go in the book with the recipe.
The wedding card is one I made earlier, ah I mean last week and it is ready for this weekend when we are invited to a wedding. The daughter of one of our neighbours is getting married.
I used ribbons, brads and decoupaged the image.
The postcard of Colorado came out of the green envelope.
Here it is close up. It is the Mesa Verde national Park, which preserves the site of ancient communities of Anasazi Indians, including 800 year old dwellings carved high into the sandstone cliffs. Very interesting for me as I live in an area where people have carved cave dwellings in the cliffs and I live in one of those (modernised) cave houses. It is great to see ancient dwellings. The postage stamps are lovely too:
The red envelope is one from the bank. I was due a new debit card, but it never arrived. Annoyingly I had to suffer a week without my card before they decided they'd better order me another one. Within days I found a new card in my letterbox. Hurray! Today I got another red envelope with a new card in it. Now I have two! So I will have to go to the bank again tomorrow and explain that I now have two and I only need one. My bank is not usually this inefficient so I don't know what went wrong there....
I am going to link up with Julia at Stamping Ground and join 'What's on your workdesk Wednesday' where we show and tell (what's on our desk).
I've shown and told. Now it is your turn.
Have a great week,
