What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday! Time to pop over to Julia and have some fun! Didn't manage to visit so many last week as I had a bad cold, but aiming for all of you this week :)

The pic is very gloomy today, not much light outdoors as it's snowing today.
So from the left you can see the last Christmas card waiting for the finishing touches, storage for larger dies, cell phone, a tin with cut'n dry nibs and inks, stamps and adhesives. And not much more as there's no room for more, but it's easily cleaned! And half of it falls down to the floor, he he.

To my right I have a storage box with inks, an old rag to wipe off ink from craft sheet and stamps, the weights for weekly training, large pockets for paper scraps and a note board with thread storage.

And here's the finished card:
Image, scroll, snowflake and text are Penny Black (Christmas treasure set)
Versa Fine black ink, Distress Inks, Sakura glaze pens and Liquid Pearls
Cuttlebug snowflakes and Spellbinders ovals
Ribbon, gems, charm, threads and papers are from my stash

I'm entering:
Colour Create Challenge: Robin Egg Blue, Sea Foam Green, Cream and Winter
A Spoon Full of Sugar: Anything goes!
For Fun Challenges: Anything goes!
Penny Black Saturday Challenge: A fab sketch by Pauline
Simon Says Stamps Challenge: Let it snow!
Stampin' for The Weekend: Winter
