I've been playing around with these huge tags that my sister sent they are originally Party invites and I've been altering them into huge Pocket tags to hold something and there's my big old kitty keeping me company. Now he loves Pencils and you'll notice I forgot to put one away well as I stood there and watched him eyeing it. Less then a Min later he had it in his mouth and started to bite into it. Took that way quick he's already done it to a few of my pencils and broken others there got to be something about how soft the wood is around them that turns him into a big old dog lol If I throw one he chases it but doesn't bring it back ...ever. When he starts chewing on them and I have to try and save it from him lol This one only had a couple teeth marks in it
and my Coffee fix is French Vanilla mmm
The little white pail is full of little hand made organza flowers,
The tags are with my newest digi stamp I thought I'd make 3 tags
using up scraps

Thanks for peeking at my desk and I've got a little digi candy to win here just leave a comment to win till the 31st too only 2 ppl so far and 3 winners lol so they need a little competition ;)

What's on Your Work desk Wed Started by Julia For those of us who check out what everyone is creating and check out their newest or oldest stash .. Couple things I'm working on for a couple challenges  and a couple presents in the mix hoping I'll get them done in time :)
The Pink Skull is actually a halloween wooden cut-out from Micheals but I didn't want it scary I want it for a card I'll need for my niece she loves pink,glitter and skulls what a combo. Plus if it's pink how can it be scary.
These little Embellishments didnt' match the Red/Burgandy theme that's all about so
Little Versamark some embossing powder and Voila it matches
I'm really surprised my desk actually has stuff on it and I had to stop myself from cleaning it up before I grabbed my camera I just left it be..... it was hard to do lol
