What's on your Workdesk Wednesday - again ?

Well, I don't like to disappoint, so I have some (more) new stamps today!

This time - for a change, lol - it is a Tim Holtz set - and I am blaming Sioux as I saw her use the sentiment on something and was taken by it - she told me the name of the set and even somewhere I could get it - though I found it here in the UK in the end - so the rest is history!  Thanks, Sioux!

Looking forward to using it!**  My excuse - not that I need one, you realise - is that it's my birthday on Sunday so I owed myself a present! Well, someone's got to....

I have been strangely non-crafty this week - not done anything since last week - though I have some cards I need to get done, and a couple of challenges I have made something for but don't like, so may do it again!

**Used the new stamps - this is my  cousin's birthday card - love that paisley pattern! It doesan't show up very well but it is on a 6x6 base cardstock!

So, as there is nothing else happening around it I will let you get on your way back to Julia's to check out some much more interesting craft spaces to see what's up!

I'm not so sure that the lack of craftyness is missing for a lot of people. It's been a hard time for lots of folks it seems. Not feeling crafty, that is. I'm STILL very impressed with your stamp collection. It grows bigger each day.

That's a great sentiment, and I can see why you like it.

I think that should have read a lack of craftiness happening to a lot of people. I think faster than I type.

Hi Helen - That is a lovely stamp and why not treat yourself - you couldn't treat anyone better.
Thanks for sharing your new goodies and your lovely card for your cousin.
Hugs, neet #9

Don’t you just love it when someone sends you on a shopping spree. Lol!
It’s all too easy to get carried away though especially as we now visit so many inspiring people so we need to have a ‘little’ bit of control I think……but not much!
Love the card you’ve made, so simple and elegant.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your lovely message. Today is going to be hard but a very rewarding one.
Happy Crafting!

First, while it's in my head - could I have your snail mail so I can inflict a dodgy card on you for your birthday?

Secondly... there was a Tim Holtz set you DIDN'T have and hadn't heard of? Blimey! I never thought I'd see that day.

I do like that sentiment though ;)

Twiglet said...

That Tim Holtz has a lot to answer for - Wipso and I bought the tattered flowers die so that we can make fabric flowers - its brill!!

jodpea said...

Oh phew, all is right with the world - Helen has been buying! I've just checked my bank balance, sadly I'll have to live vicariously for the rest of the month...:(

Cardarian said...

Oh yet another lovely stamp! You are right - the sentiment is really good - I might have to get that one too! :-)...
Lots of hugs,
Cardarian

NatashaMay said...

Fantastic stamps. I think there are a few of us out there suffering with the crafting mojo thing. I'm making myself paint etc but my hearts not in it.
Thanks for stopping by

Wishing you a very happy birthday for Sunday! I would send a card, but I don't have your address and I'm crap at getting these things out on time, TBH! ROFL. SO, have a very great and wonderful day, and enjoy those stamps!

voodoo vixen said...

I bought some stamps last week and now you show me another one I want... not good for the pocket book all this visiting and seeing lovely stuff!! LOL

minnie_mac said...

Of course you have to buy yourself a birthday present. It's a crafter's tradition. And why stop at one I say !

I think I erased my comment going to search for the stamp set! I don't remember seeing this stamp before. Evidently it is one of the earlier Tim Holtz stamps...007. Lovely card. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #107
