Busy! (WOYWW)

Why is it when you are due to go on holiday the workload suddenly increases?  I have been running round like a headless chicken this week to try and get things finished off at work before I go on my holiday on Saturday.  It has been mad.  Here is my desk as part of WOYWW.  This photo was taken yesterday evening after I had spent a day working at home, which is why it is comparatively tidy.  The photo was taken when I was in the planning phase of making a card for my Aunt who turns 75 next week.  I was looking at papers and stamps to try and decide what to make.  Despite temperatures of 27-28oC yesterday I was still drinking tea...hence the half drunk mug on the desk.
Here is the card, taken late last night.  I used two Hot off the Press papers (left overs from a scrapbooking project), some lace, a prima flower and a three gem flower centre.  The stamped image is from Crafty Individuals.  I am entering this into SSSS 'for a lady', and Ooh La La '1 image, 2 design papers & 3 embellishments' (I used three types of embellishments so hope this is OK). That is all from me for now.  Have a great week everyone.
