Hi Everyone,
Firstly a big HELLO and WELCOME to my new followers joining me on my crafty journey.
Its that time of the week again, where we all have a little snoop around other desks to see what everyone is up to with WOYWW.  If you want to join in the fun and need to know more, pop over to find out how with our lovely host Julia here .
 On my desk today, I have been playing with my some new Anna Marie stamps and flower stamens  I bought at the paper craft show in Harrogate last Saturday that I went to with Anne.  The flowers are made up of paper rings cut and wrapped around the stamen as Anna Marie was showing on Create and Craft last monday.   I have done a quick tutorial in case anyone missed the programme for my next post as I think they are so pretty.  The fairy rubber stamp in the centre of the desk are from Stamp Addicts I am going to use her with the flowers on a couple of birthday cards, there are 3 backgrounds of which have been stamped ready at the back of the desk, although I dont think they are very clear on the photo. I will post them when I have finished them.  Meanwhile here is a sneak peek of some I made up earlier ready to go on to a card. It love it when you see something like this from a bit of card, ink & ribbon and little bit of time.

At the back you can see finished Mr Owl I was working on from my last desk, see my last post for a better view.  He is sat on my desk watching what I am doing  with his lovely big eyes.  Just out of view you can see lace, I might use this too but am not sure yet.  I have some owl ribbon you can see at the back left that I could not resist, and some felt owls which are in the packet at the back awaiting construction. Anyway I must say toodle pip for now as I have a workshop today so must get organised, I will catch up with everyone that visits me and as many others as I can later today.
Crafty Hugs till then and have a great Day!

  14. Hi Mo thank you so much for popping by and for your good wishes for my audition. You are right it was the perfect excuse to get a full Graphic 45 emersion!!! I love your daisy corsage - how pretty they look. I have done this technique with a strip of paper and the come out looking like cornflowers.
