WOYWW 159

Hi, everyone - hope this finds you well and ready for another Wednesday surfing the workdesks of the creative world, thanks to Julia's Stamping Ground. 

I am preparing this post early as my evenings are spent at the moment watching the European Championships football (soccer if you prefer) tournament from Poland and Ukraine. Not a lot of crafting is going on... but some shopping is..... look!!

mmm shopping! the larger one is from Craftyboots.com and the one on the right Art From the Heart... you can see what's in that one.....
and here they are opened!  I have had time to try the colours out on a tag... lush!!!  And sitting on the tag at the top right is the 'spare' tissue wrap flower from my previous post.

You can see the makings or plannings of a DT piece behind the sprays... wonder what she's up to here???!!! you'll have to come back sometime in the future!!

It may be late before I get to you this week as I won't have much time during the working day to sneak round some of you!!

Lovely colours of inks and sprays. I don't think we can ever have enough colours in our craft room. Please post a pic of the DT piece.

Neet said...

My inks are not opened yet so you are one step ahead of me and I have no excuse like football.
Lovely purchases all ready for when the football is over - will you watch to the end as what the outcome is?
Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet #21 xx

Indeed, those colours are gorgeous! I am totally oblivious to the footie but have seen it mentioned a few times so at least know who won LOL!

Have fun playing with your stash!

Cardarian said...

Oh so you are a football fan too?? England won last night - Rooney scored so happy, happy, happy!!!
I envy the summer seasonals you have there - I ordered them initially but the postage came up to 9 pounds - almost half the price of the inks so I cancelled the order - don't know what to do now - must find another way to get them!
Lots of hugs,
Cardarian

Miriam said...

I keep looking at those sprays and thinking that I should buy some. Loving the new distress inks too.

It's so nice to see bright, vivid colours instead of the grungy ones. Good result from the shopping trip, say I!! And I can't believe that it's a whole year gone either...that's been a full, busy 12 months, I can tell you!

Wonderful colourful desk Helen,
It looks like you're in for a fun time ahead with that stash!
I don't suppose you have to get up at 5am and other silly-o-clocks to watch the Euro footy...as we do in this house...or I should say my hubby does.
Try telling him to be quiet and he looks like ~ who me?...I'm so quiet already!!! Hmm... :$
Thanks for visiting my desk earlier. Happy WOYWW Neesie #26

Ann B said...

There is no better feeling than getting a parcel through the post, unless it is getting a beautifully wrapped parcel containing craft goodies.
I gave in to the Summer DIs as well, not had time to play with them yet but they are lovely colours.
Will have to have a go at the tissue roses, yours is perfect.
Bit late getting round the desks this week as we were out all yesterday, enjoying the sunshine while it lasts.
