What's on your Workdesk? Wednesday - Just

I know I'm a bit late today for WOYWW #174, but I have been to my sister who lives over 60 miles from me and got back to pick the little grandchildren from school as the eldest is back in hospital and will probably be in for a while again. Since her big op she has been sick (physically) and the doctors don't seem to know what's going on. I hope they get it sorted soon.

As my desk has everything piled on it that was on the floor, ready for hoovering, I thought I would show you some of the shelves behind my chair. Not that interesting I know but maybe the next picture will be.

If you visited me last week for WOYWW #173 you saw part of a canvas peeking out and many of you said you would like to see it finished, so this is it.

It was the canvas we made at my workshop on Saturday and the ladies just loved it. 

Text paper and scrumpled tissue paper texture for the background, patterned paper squares edged with glitter, The Eiffel Tower image and die-cut and some embellishing.

Ooh, la, la.

I am entering this canvas into the Make My Monday challenge of Paris.

Happy WOYWW, hope you have had a good day if you are in the UK or ahead of us in time, and having a good day if you are behind us.

Please pop over to Julia's lovely blog at the Stamping Ground, she who organises and hosts this great opportunity to visit people's work stations all round the world. If you haven't yet ventured into desk hopping I have to say it's great fun.

See you soon.
