What’s On Your Work Desk This Week? #316

Hello dear friends – can you believe that it’s time for another round of What’s On Your Work Desk Wednesday (WOYWW)?

Every week, it seems like time flies by faster and faster!

The other day, I was shocked to learn that Independence Day – one of our most festive holidays here in the States – is just a week and a half away! Time to clean house! Time to send out barbecue invitations! Time to make cards in anticipation of this great holiday!

I have a large collection of red, white and blue stuff since I love the 4th of July,, so I pulled out my Close To My Heart Cardstock and Paper (Blue Ribbon) – Stamps (July Word Puzzle, D1289) and Ink (Moonstruck) – created some fuzzy tags with patriotic mulberry paper and embellishments – added some ribbon and bling – and created the card you see before you!

For those of you who live in the States, how will you be celebrating the Fourth? For those of you who live outside of the States, when do you celebrate your country’s independence?

Now it’s your turn to share your creations with us! What have you created or acquired this week? Whether you’re showing off your desk, sharing your latest acquisitions, or spotlighting your latest creation – be sure to share it with our creative community at our weekly parties as well!
