WOYWW 473


It's Wednesday and that means a visit to Julia's lovely blog and lots of other lovely crafting spaces to explore and enjoy. If you don't know what I'm talking about, the head over to WOYWW 473 at Julia's lovely blog and find out ... and I hope you'll join in the fun.

This morning I'm posting really early because John has two cardiology appointments at the local hospital - the first is for an echo before seeing the consultant later and the appointment is 9 o'clock, which means we need to be ready for transport at 7 ... that alarm just keeps getting earlier and earlier.

Anyway, back to the purpose of this post ... to show what's in my workspace today. I confess that the stamps that needed cleaning had even been added to since last week's showing of my desk, but I've been shamed into dealing with them ... no, I haven't cleaned them ... I've just moved them - lol!

So, on the left hand side of my desk there just happen to be the five little circle stamps still there because I have a plan to use them again very soon. And then there's a few nice things that will be used on a card for my Patterned paper challenge and some of it will be used for a prize on there - if you haven't discovered my Pattered Paper challenge blog yet, then please click on the link, visit and then join in the fun using some of your patterned paper. And, of course, the all important fan that runs off the usb on the computer - it's only small, but does the job well.


Over on the right hand side of my desk are some more new goodies and underneath there are lots of offcuts as well as the Papermania Modern Deco paper pad that I've fallen in love with.


In the middle you can see four cards that I've made and blogged in the last couple of days:


 When I can I'll visit some of the blogs linked for WOYWW 473 and I hope you will too.
