WOYWW? Anyone for tennis?

It's Wednesday again and Julia is mustering the troops at the Stamping Ground for desk inspection...

The lovely people at Paperartsy are part way through a week of new releases, which are in the stores now and I "may" have bought some on Sunday (launch night)
 someone commented about the green canvas water bucket a few weeks ago which I forgot to reply to - sorry, can't remember who it was... it doesn't leak because it's lined with plastic


close up of the new stuff - one stencil and 3 new stamp plates (and another on order...)

well, it's been at least a couple of weeks since I bought anything!!




I won't be able to visit many desks until later in the week (or maybe after the weekend) because today will see me at Wimbledon watching the tennis again (love my boss!) and then at the weekend I am going to the Peak District to do a couple of workshops.. luckily I have next week off work to recover!  If any of you were interested in the Hampton Court flower show (I went on Saturday) there are 3 (yes, 3) posts on the "photosbyh" blog (click the picture of the fountain at the top of my blog... enjoy!

What a wonderful boss - and what a wonderful shopping spree. Gosh they arrived quickly didn't they?
Enjoy your workshop up in the Peak District - lovely countryside. Busting to know what you are doing.

Finally enough bandwidth to actually comment! Our internet in Spain is woeful..they think 6MBP is fast! I'm watching the Papertartsy releases too...lordy they are lovely arent they. Will purchase vicariously through you for a while, I haven't even made time to play with the birds you stamped for me yet - it's been workshop stuff and nothing else for a while. It was so much easier when I had a child at home and didn't work for real!
LOVING your Hampton Court pics...I think I've spent about 2 hours mulling through them now...I should comment but I go in through Facebook and then the bloody iPad or google or something makes the comment take about 3 days and OMG! Suffice..I'm LOVING them. |Hope you have a lovely Wimbledon day and a fantastic weekend in the Peaks.

Hi Helen, I may have got through this post without going off and spending any money, lol. But I do love that butterfly plate, so maybe not. My son was at Hampton Court all last week, editing the programme for TV airing. He said it was stunning- just a nightmare to get out at the end of the day. Your pics were amazing, by the way. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #10 xxx

Lucky you having new Paperartsy stamps, they look brill, not envious of a trip to Wimbledon, I think I'm the only person who hates it.
Have a great days watching.

Hi Helen, well I do hope you're enjoying the tennis, can't say much about the bad behavior of the young Aussies :-( Our TV is full of sport at present, tennis, cricket and we've just had a big state rugby match last night, yeah out team won. Thanks for visiting and enjoy your workshops Cheers RobynO#11
