What's on my Workdesk Wednesday 282? Coffee!

Hello fellow Desker from Julia's place, welcome to my rather uninteresting desk today!  I have cleaned and tidied and am ready for my next project...whatever takes my fancy!

I have been very busy with entries to challenges and along the way I experimented with some leather off-cuts I bought at a hobby Xpo recently with the aim of trying them out through my dies.  Then I had a brain wave and tried the die cut pieces through my embossing folders.  It works like a treat!

 The front and back of the embossed leather wings I used for the dress form above which I entered into the latest CC3 challenge.

 This is a couture Creation folder which fits Tims pocket watch die perfectly!
 So that's my desk this week...off to see what I can see on yours!
