Morning Deskers,

A brief post this morning,  I wasn't going to do one, but Margaret asked me if I could. She asked me to, because she won't be able to,  she is in Essex, I  think, picking up Marian's mother in law, to take her to North Wales for Marian's funeral tomorrow,  and as soon as we have parked the cat at the cattery, we will also be on tne road, so I will not be able to make prompt responses to any visits.
So a brief pic of the desk,

 So what you can see, is on the left, the beginnings of some Christmas cards, in the centre some Martha Stewart punches I am selling on Facebook and on the right, the makings of an anniversary card for my sister.

This is the version of the same design I made for my daughter, as the picture does not do justice to it, it is in a soft mushroom colour with cream.
Well I must post this or you will never see it, and if anyone is reading this and wonders why I am doing "the full monty" with my desk, pop over to, can't get a link.

Well I must post this or you will never get to see it
Bless you for visiting,

Hi Chris, back again. That Condolence stamp is available, it's from Inkylicious, and there are 3 different ones in the pack. All different fonts, one of the others is Deepest Sympathy in a lovely Script font, and then the third one would be suitable for inside the card, or it could be used on the front.
Hugs, Shaz Xx

Hi Chris, thanks so much for your visit earlier in the week. Your desk looks nice and busy - I hope your kitty doesn't mind going to the cattery - we try to avoid putting Oreo in but sometimes it's unavoidable. Last time we were away, we left him in the house but we were only gone one night, 30 hrs in total and he slept through most of it. Lovely anniversary card and you're so disciplined to start on your C-cards. I couldn't put myself in the Christmas mood in this heat! Mind you, I've just had Silent Night playing in the background - my hubby has a habit of putting some music on and just leave me with it LOL! I had to change it for something more appropriate! Have a lovely Sunday afternoon! zsuzsa #9
