WOYWW 316

So, it's Wednesday again, and time we meet at Julia's Stamping Ground and see what everyone's been up to and share our workspaces... Julia's will look very different this week as she's taking a break in the sun, lucky lady!
 A pile  is what's on my desk today... a pile of early birthday cards (keeping them for Friday) , some MDF arches some die cuts, some wooden stamps and the new distress ink...




You may have seen here the report of my weekend away I mentioned last week - it was fabulous!!



The wooden stamps came from there, as Lin was getting rid of some duplicates she had had from her days of her shop and the die cuts were from Lesley, one of my friends I went away with.  They're the scribbly heart/splats from Tim that I hadn't even seen before, not sure why....Lesley also collected the arches from the MDF man that we'd ordered and brought down for us.

my canvas we were working on is sitting on the stamps to my right of where I work, waiting for time time to finish it off... probably not till the weekend though

Handing you back to the link up at Julia's, thanks for stopping by. .

Your weekend looked great, how lucky you are to be in with such a great bunch of people who get to go to Lin B's. I cannot begin to imagine how wonderful it must be to craft under Lin's direction in such small numbers. Can you tell I am going 'green'?
Have a wonderful day on Friday and don't forget we want to see all that you get.
Hugs, Neet xx 9

Have a wonderful birthday! Lots of goodies to look at on your desk. I spy something with ladies on it. I always like those kinds of stamps. I think I "collect", because I pick things up at sales like that, but haven't used them! LOL Well, I am off to the next desk! #41

Hello Helen, It's my first time playing and I really enjoyed looking at your work desk. You've certainly got some goodies there. I was interested reading your profile. Watching football on tv is my 2nd passion. I don't support a particular team but watch as much as I can including German and Spanish football when it's on.

Enjoy the rest of your day,
