Happy Wednesday to all you WOYWWer's, no day off for me today so, have just stuffed myself with pizza and chocci biccies (note to self, start diet tomorrow, muffin top now turned into gateau top !!!), watched Hollyoaks, tis killing me just wanna know who shot Calvin, and now commandeered the pc to post my picci.
Those book covers which were on show last week are now partly decorated and must finish them off as have to make up my book ready to pop in the post, oops I forgot to move the bean tin which is now partly completed also, but more of that for the WOYWW celebrations in a couple of weeks. I have stolen taken inspiration from Linda E , a tin which she altered and appeared in an edition of Craft Stamper. Oh yes, a new set of stamps which I got from Inkylicious last weekend and are still in the packet, OH was watching over my shoulder all the way round the shop so had to be good, completed my spend with some Claudine Hellmuth matte medium and some petaloo flowers, I will return when it is safe to do so and on my own LOL.
Thank you to all who take time to visit my blog today and any other, I never manage to complete the list but do tackle it when I get the chance, join in the madness there are fabulous work spaces and gorgeous works of art, so join us all at Julias blog and have a good old nosey.
P.S. have been for my hair cut this evening and gone a bit modern, have gone for what I call a lop sided look, ya know, one of these shorter on one side than tother.......... "A" semetrical the hairdresser corrected. Only thing I don't like about it is that I cannot hide the blubber under me chin on the short side anymore.
Don't know why but all my post is not showing, am fed up with fiddling.

Morning all, yes I said morning! I have a GP appointment this afternoon so decided to treat myself to a day off work yaaaayyyyy. I have washed the pots, cleaned round the house, have washing drying, planted some carrot seeds and do need a shower but that can wait a while and am feeling very pleased with myself lol. Was so excited this morning too as while washing the pots I looked up to see a large bird on our fat feeder and it was a spotted woodpecker, we have seen it in the trees behind our house but never in the garden, of course there was no one here to share it with. I dashed to get the camera but it had gone by the time I got back. Back to business, make sure you visit Julia and all the other WOYWW er's and have a good old nosey.
What's on my desk other than the items that never move, a new pack of baby wipes and some covers I am preparing with gesso as part of a circle journal type challenge. My bean tean for altering is still there, unaltered and out of view is a canvas I have gesso'd (is that a word?), and still not entirely sure what I'm going to do with it.
Here is one of the cards I have made this week for a friend at works birthday, using some Blonde Moments papers, Bella stamp coloured using my pro markers, ribbon from the unmoved stash on my desk, message from Craftwork Cards and flowers and pearls from my stash. Have a lovely day WOYWW'ers

This is one of a couple of wedding cards I made as a friend of mine is getting married on Saturday and this is the one I decided to give to the Happy Couple. The Making Memories papers are so gorgeous and strokable, (is that a word LOL). I have had a bit of a card fest over the weekend as have lots to make, it's no wonder I don't get time to branch out, although I do have a book to make for a challenge.
And finally, at last, you say, there's not much different about the top of me desk this week so decided to show under my desk, stamps, dies and some christmas stash storage although I have some stamps which were bought with kits in more boxes and I think my quick kutz (hardly used, ummm, maybe my OH has a point when he won't let me have a cricut), is in the bag with my dies. Have a lovely week all.

As I had done a bird and anything goes, I thought I would do a cat too, as all that was going through my mind was Tweety and Sylvester, but the only only thing I could find was some decoupage, so we have a birthday cat and a birthday bird to celebrate 100 Sunday Stamper challenges.
