What's On your Workbench? Wednesday

Another week of not much going on!! A card I finished for the Daring Cardmakers Dare, some coloured images that I intend to make bookmarks from (some time) and a pile of stamps I would love to use in the near future!!

I now apologize to my BFF Suze if you can make out the stamp on top of the pile. I know I vouched never to buy one of them but I succumbed to peer-group pressure. Please forgive me ooxo

For those that don't understand why I am posting a pic of my desk you need to check out the Stamping Ground and have a happy WOYWW!!
