What's on your workdesk? I got shopping...

Welcome back and thanks for all your kind words last week.  I was incredible to see so many wonderful PIF gifts last week - what a talented bunch you all are! Catch up with some more great desks at Julia's

Now that I know my PIF partner Ohhhsnap (Sally) has received her giant tag I can share it with you.

 I did it so long ago now I can't remember what colours I used but it's probably traditional tan by claudine hellmuth - and there is a bit of this and a bit of that! Metal, paint, die cut flowers & butterflies, stamping, tissue tape....

and the one I made Julia (which she shared last week as it didn't have so far to travel!)

Same idea, different colours!














But for ME this week, there are some treats - well, I had to didn't I! The dies arrived on Friday (good job they were wrapped in plastic as they were left on the doorstep in the rain...
and the stamps arrived today (Tuesday being WOYWW prep night!) so at the time of typing I haven't inked them up yet...  probably should have taken the protective bag off to avoid the glare... Its the Steampunk set - so now I can get to this week's Sunday Stamper challenge which has a theme of - steampunk!

So, has your PIF arrived yet?  Do you like it?  Share it with us - and check out loads more tidy (and some untidy) desks at Julia's Stamping Ground

P.S.  Had time to play - made a card (8x8) for Hels' Sunday Stamper challenge -  base paper is Graphic 45 and the stamps are from the new set above.

What a wonderful tag you made for Ohhh Snap. She sent MY PiF and I showed it last week. I also saw Nicky got hers from me. I love that large card you made for Sunday Stamper. It is awesome. I have the mask to that TH clock, but can't get it to work. Love what you did! Happy WOYWW from (don't ask how) #1.
