WOYWW 429

Up bright and early today as I have to go into work! I will do my WOYWW tour this evening or on my day off tomorrow.


I bought a baby clothes line stamp and die set this week.  I am planning on making several cards ready for all the pregnant ladies at work.  So I've been practising stamping the little die cuts.  Perfect way to use up scraps. They are on top of a white scrapbooking album that I plan to use as a wedding album, when I get round to printing out our wedding photos!  I was also inspired by Shaz and a few others to clear out most of my UFO box. 3 cards finished, which can just about be seen in the top LH corner of my desk.  2 cards left in my UFO box, which are both decoupage.  All cut out ready to layer together. And I gave in and started preparing for my first few Christmas cards.  I have a few die cut toppers that are gorgeous, and some stamps i have coloured in with watercolours, but not finished yet. Last year, I left it till November time and then a mad rush, but fellow deskers, you have convinced me to start early.  I also bought a few items on eBay and they arrived this week, on the RH side of my desk, but not had time to put them away.  The tattered lace shoe looks lovely! Not sure what I will do with it!  Have a wonderful week and thanks for visiting.   Please leave a comment and I will be sure to know you stopped by. Take care, Heather xx

  5. Hi Heather, smiled at being one for inspiring you to empty your UFO box- I'm usually in trouble for inspiring people to spend money, rofl! Love the baby cl;othes, and the Christmas trees. I always find I keep far too many tiny scraps, and have to have a clear out occasionally, but this is a great way to use them. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #7 XxX

  14. Decided not to beat myself up with Christmas card making this year and bought some in the sale last January, so I am covered if I don't get round to it!!! Smug or what? Will add some glitter and/or liquid pearls to lift the printed images or might even re-back some of the smaller ones, who knows. God Bless and thanks for visiting BJ#21
