WOYWW #229...It's getting colder...


Brrr! Having had an extended Summer (or Fummer as Hubby is calling it - Fake Summer) the cooler Autumn weather has come as a bit of a shock.

I am sure that across the WOYWW community, you have been experiencing the same shock.

WOYWW for those of you that do not know is hosted by the lovely Julia on her blog Stamping Ground, we have a weekly global desk nose - why not join us?

My desk is a hive of activity this week - DT makes kicking around, 40 for 40 remnants, fabric squares - for Lavender sachets I am making, a card for a friend and another half coloured version, my automatic pencil (LOVE automatic pencils), some scanned in and printed out stamps and my glasses.

I thought I'd give you a sneak preview of one of the 40 for 40 cards -

Live, Love and Laugh
I love the paper on this card, it is from Michael's and I've used it several times - most notably for my Father's Day card last year. I used a Tim Holz stencil for the spotty / grid background, one of my beloved Range flowers and you can just see a teeny bit of doily poking out! I think he needs something else, so be warned wherever he ends up, he might look slightly different :)

I have also been wracking my brain for a way to decide who gets what..So I have decided to write out all the envelopes and turn them upside down and lay a card on top of them, that way it is completely random.

Oh and before I go, check out my shiny new Featured Stamper badge...isn't he gorgeous :) It's all thanks to JT.

  11. I am so with you on the paper, it's gorgeous. You certainly have a lot going on at your desk...am reassured by the presence of your glasses...makes me feel that our desks are similar..at a time when I'm not being very productive!
