WOYWW - well this time I shopped

Two weeks without any new stash was WAY too  long for my willpower, so this week I have two lots of new things to show you!!  Oh, sorry, welcome to my desk (it's still on the floor, Julia - the previous shot you commented on was just from a VERY low angle...... ) So, it's Wednesday again (well it will be when this gets published!) and it's time for globe-trotting round the desks of the universe thanks to JULIA.


First, I got some new Tim'n'Wendy stamps (well, they were on special offer at the time, thanks to Dyan  at AFTH - and they'd have come super-duper quick if I hadn't typed the wrong postcode in the order..... oops!) but HOW beautifully they were wrapped - look - and yes, I have kept the heart (of course!) to re-use somewhere down the line....











 And then I kept seeing the new Dina Wakley stamps that I "had" to have some - I got them here but they are all over the place oh my they are just gorgeous.









I had a play on Monday - oh, yum!! I haven't finished this yet, but I had to get the ink open - Wendy has been raving about how fab the Vermillion ink looks over Wild Honey distress (stain here) ink - I think she's right!



So what have you been up to? Got any new 'toys' or re-organised your stash?  Do show us all, we're a nosy lot.... See you soon!

It’s fun getting new stash arriving in the post isn’t it Helen and in my case even more fun when it’s a prize that you don’t have to pay for!
