Welcome to What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday

Morning all,

How's your week coming along? I hope your lives haven't been too disrupted by Storm Angus this past week. We've had some terrific thunderstorms and some torrential rain. Thank heavens we've not personally been flooded but a number of homes in our city have been, thank heavens for our "accidental" choice to live at the top of a hill.

Still, it WAS a great excuse to stay in and craft!

My card
And a closer view, to show the Wink of Stella twinkle!

I've done a lot of sewing during the storms too - though we haven't suffered with floods like many parts of Bristol. Your cards are great, I like the graphic design aspect of them!

Hi Kathy, love that card. We too live at the top of a hill. In fact, if we ever got flooded, it would mean that the rest of the town would be totally under water! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #9 xx

Pat said...

A great stamp and the blue and gold work well together Kathy, also your workspace looks busy. x

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

Love your card and how you've staged it with the pebbles. We're looking to move house and we're very aware of the flood zones. Top of the hill is good - as long as it's not too steep! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa #22
