What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday # 140

So, just exactly where was I working?
And how many pairs of scissors
does one girl need?

Oh dear.

What a mess!!

ALL my desks were fine and dandy until I got a call to make an emergency card. I recently did a commission for a 'shoe' card (here).

Great idea, use the guillotine as a
storage shelf. Ah, another pair of
 scissors. You can never have too
 many pairs of scissors.
Someone else saw it and asked if I could make another one - first catch, it needed to be there for Thursday, so meant making and posting out on the same day.

Second catch - it was for a guy!!

I'm saying nothing.

Good job I've got another one
(guillotine I mean)
But this is what happens when I'm in a rush and my crazy takes over. So this is my workdesk this Wednesday. The thing I was working on before I got the call is buried. It will stay like this until Friday now, think I'll just shut the door.....

Why am I telling you this? Well, it's all down to Julia of Stamping Ground who hosts this weekly blog hop known as WOYWW. Hop over first to Julia's to read what's what and find out how to join in.  
Oh, here's the card:- 

Do you think he'll like it LOL? (I actually like it better than the original. And it took me half as long to make. Perhaps I do work better under pressure. Or to unusual briefs.(!?!))

P.S. February Art Draw is open.
Have you entered? If not, why not?
Go on, you know you want to!!HAPPY WOYWW.

That is a sexy card!! LOVE the zip flower and animal print, mmmmm
When my DH was in hospital a few years back, my boys and I used to have to pass a shop en route to visiting him. In the window were all sorts of kinky boots - my sons asked me why the ladies of Bristol had such big feet......!!!!! That was an interesting conversation in the car on the way home... :)

Hi Cindy,

Oh, wouldn't I love to have a go at your desk!!! Not to straighten but to explore -- ahhh yes!

That card is quite something. Love the zipper rose. I've actually been collecting zippers from the thrift store in the hopes of making some of these flowers. Is it hard to do?
