What's On your Workbench? Wednesday

It is Wednesday isn't it? I hope so! I went back to work today after having a week and a half off and I don't know if I am coming or going!!

Today on my desk I have a couple of cards finished and a couple of the cards in the making. Also I tried my hand at shaped cards with the cricut design software....that's the Popsicle thing on the left of the screen.

Ooh I also have some origami boats that my daughter must of played with today and left out.

OK enough gibber jabber...I need to get some cards finished!!
