WOYWW 92 - 9th March

Happy Wednesday all. Good to see you all again. What's on YOUR workdesk today? Once again we're all getting together at Julia's to check! Have you tidied? Have you re-organised? Have you shopped?

Well, I can answer yes to one of those.... bet you can't guess which one - go on, try!!

I know I said I wasn't going to before Ally Pally - but that's a month away (exactly a month) and - um - er - well you see I had such fun spraying colourwashes over the stencils last week I treated myself to a few more.
They're on the way to me, but not here yet.  What DID arrive today (sorry, on Tuesday) are the goodies I got courtesy of my random win on the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge a couple of weeks ago - and this is what I chose!

Some Tim Holtz stamps - for a change!  Some of his earlier designs, that I've not seen here before (good excuse, eh?!)



The prize was a massive $50 to spend in the Simon Says online store. Well, it would be rude not to... So this haul cost me the price of the postage and a few $$ over the 50. And it only took a week to get here from the States. I don't think that's too bad.
I still love wood mounted stamps the best, never mind that they take up more storage space!

Had to have a little play too - the tag background is a reject from a challenge from a few days ago that I kept because you can cover a multitude of sins with paper scraps!



So, that's me. I will get to as many of you as I can today or as soon as I can, till then, have a great hop!
Oh, and I went to Kew Gardens again on Saturday, there are a few photos on my other blog (click the fountain at the top of the sidebar if you're interested)

Sunshine Girl said...

What a fabulous prize to win - love those stamps and the tag you have done. Thanks for sharing.

MaggieC said...

Lovely tag. Tina Cox said recently that you cannot have too many butterflies on a card (to cover up the mistakes/deliberate changes to the design), so if anything is apparently a reject, there is always a way to lift it again.

Thanks for visiting me and leaving your lovely message. If you take a look at the PS, you will see that little Rosie has now made her appearance.

Dolly Daydreams said...

Another beauty, really love your art. Marie

Elizabeth said...
