What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - Valentine's Day

Hello Everyone,

It's not just WOYWW but also St Valentine's Day and my desk looked just a bit different this morning. On it was quite a surprise!!!
Roses! Not usual for a Wednesday morning. The roses were totally unexpected but aren't they lovely. I especially like that it is a mix of pink and red - so pretty. The hearts, as you can probably guess, were left out after making a Valentine's card as was the box of Spectrum Aquas. There's also a ton of stamps - most featuring hearts too - an ink pad and the scraps of card used as testers. Mr Romantic now has the card so I can share it here too.
I've steered away from traditional colours this year, though there is a touch of red - hearts just have to be red!

Right, that's it for me this week. Short and sweet. I'm going to take Mr Romantic out to our favourite coffee haunt for a treat. Well, after those roses, I think he deserves it,

Happy WOYWW and have a wonderful Valentine's Day whatever you're doing.

Edit Note: Readers, he declined my invitation. He says it's blowing a gale out there and freezing cold so he's opted to 'stay home and snuggle' just as it says on his card!

  2. Happy WOYWW. A lovely card - and those roses are gorgeous. I don't blame Mr Romantic for wanting to stay in. Sadly my gorgeous hubby is outside for most of the day - getting cold and soaking wet whilst sorting out the cows/calves/other jobs on the farm. At this time of year he is out from 6 am through to the following 1 am (with a few short breaks for food/shower/naps). We are both looking forward to when we no longer have the farm business, and can relax in Spain. Ali x #30

  3. What beautiful roses Ellie...such a romantic. Love the card you made....I made one too but didn’t take a pic (it’s not as posh as yours of course but it made him smile). Enjoy snuggling up in the warm and cosy both.
    Hugs,

  6. D'awww, you romantic things you!! I love the card but don't blame the EM for wanting to stay in the warm, it's freezy down here too. Gorgeous roses, the colours are so soft and pretty - I had some too, but yellow and white, they look lovely. We're lucky girls eh?!

  8. I think staying home and snuggling would have been much the best thing to do today, given the awful weather (again!) love the card, and the flowers are gorgeous. Have a great week.. Helen #1

  18. Oh I love a man who turns out to be a cheap date! Gorgeous roses, how lovely a surprise for you. I did wonder if perhaps the dies were there because he had done a runpelstiltkin overnight and made a card himself!
