WOYWW 155

Hello again - welcome to another Wednesday desk snoop, brainchild of Julia at the Stamping Ground where 150 plus nosy crafters meet to see what and where we work.

I do have some new stash to share (there's a surprise!) but not as much as I thought - some more on the way... some pretty paper (and card blanks) from Craftwork cards.... and some little bits and pieces from the Artistic Stamper - a metal tag, an empty vaseline tin and a little spool thingy that Jennie found in France - no idea what I'll do with them yet but they were too good to pass on....
And it's also challenge time at the yahoo group Everything Wendy Vecchi  where Lori challenges us to make something inspired by Wendy - this time from her 3rd book page 36 - Wendy's original was an ATC but we are to make a tag, using a house - and of course, at least one Wendy Vecchi stamp.  I have used Dylusions sprays and apart from the house (Paperbag Studio) all stamps are Wendy's - I used Clearly for Art (whiteout) for the butterflies which I coloured with the new distress colours.  I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but I cut down inside the door to prise it slightly ajar....hinting at something inside!

So next week is the big 3rd anniversary of WOYWW - can't wait!! Till then, have a great day and show us what you've been doing.....

Love your tag, the colours zing. I was given a 'challenge' to use one of these spindles last year. Stumped me for a while and then I came up with this - http://anniestamper.blogspot.co.uk/2011/11/spindle-from-this.html

Love the colour, and that blue packaging (?) should be made into something cool. Love the colour and the design. I often make use of the Basic Grey cover sheets with the little images of the papers within - I'm soooo cheap :)

really lovely work good colours together and I have used one of those spool things in the spine of a book. I wrapped wire around it and mounted the book within the wire, it turned out fantastic, those spool things are great to have. I have another somewhere in my stash too.

So what's behind the door? I do like little surprises, always loved those kids books with tiny opening flaps. Never grew out of it I suppose. :-)
Those Dylusions are fabulous colours. If I'm over this flu/cold by the weekend I'll go Paper to Page (a small show) and see if there any available.
Smiles,

Ah you always have some new stash on your "desk" - lucky women! Your tag is great! It is hard for me to participate in Wendy Vecchi challenges as I only have 1 set of her stamps! Huh! I guess I should "expand"
Have a nice week,
Lots of hugs,

That's a great tag Helen - when you do something with that spool I will show you what my friends did when I gave them one and challenged them to come up with something.
