Sorry for the late post, but I had to work and this is the first chance I've had to load!

Here is my desk tonight

I was working on my weekly challenge over on UKS where we were tasked with creating a LO that featured a red cross as apparently  The International Red Cross was founded in this month in 1863.

In addition the popular British actor Richard Briers died this week last year. He was, of course, well known for his role in Ever Decreasing Circles (amongst others roles)  so we were asked to include circles or spirals.

As you can see I chose to add cross stitch stamped deer and I added buttons and bling spirals for the second element.

My desk is still quite clear from the tidy up I did last fact I've made more changes and I have moved a shelving unit on to my desk too... But there's still room for more stash!

In addition I am pleased that I was able to use the dregs from my February Counterfeit Kit 'Hearts and Flowers' . I used a piece of red and white paper and made red and white card stock Poinsettias  with my Spellbinders die and added the bling and ribbon from my kit too, finishing 
off with some buttons and brads from it too. 

Here is a close up of the Red Cross stitch deer stamp I added and you can see the circles on the background card stock too. 

Thanks for popping by.. and sorry I'm so late!


  1. You weren't as late as I was! I barely made it to WOWW before it got dark outside! Glad to see another that was late with me. I think your desk looks GREAT. Love that shelving unit. Looks like it holds LOTS of stuff! Keep up the good work!

    I'm late in getting around, well really this is the second half of the day. Got interrupted this morning by LIFE itself. LOL Glad it happened or I might not have seen your page.

  5. I wondered about the red cross part of the challenge, but you've done a great job. Lovely Scandinavian feel to it. I was an early woyww poster but a late commenter! I'm getting there now.
