WOYWW 185 pots of gold

Hi wednesday world
Desk hopping time again.. is there really only 1 wednesday in a week?

Before I show you my desk this week please spare a few thoughts for the families in the US who have lost so many loved ones at the school shootings.
It was a  terrible tragedy and my heart goes out to them.  So many young lives wasted.

Here's my desk! I am keeping it very brief this week ..... lots to do.

There is actually real work going on for the first time in ages.... a Christmas pressie for a friend,
 she doesn't read my blog, so it won't spoil the surprise.
There is a lot of inka gold on the frame it looks very lush.
Here's a close up

There are  alcohol inks, embossing powders, old baby (wipes for applying the inka paste) and grunge paper flowers. . .  oh and a photo .... see the finished piece at the end.


 I also made a card for D2 . . . I used my new cute bear die cut and stamp set from memory box .
 She loves polar bears. A simple design but hey... time is short.
Here is the finished frame.... remember the picture of GD Erin from a  few weeks ago?

Anyway, usual rules apply, see you on a desk sometime soon.
Please leave your linky no. so I can get back to you.
