WOYWW 147

Hi Everyone , lots of sunshine around for most of us and long may it last x x
Well on my desk this week woo-hoo I got a Spellbinders Grand Calibur from my DH yipee!! I am very happy with it as I can cut more than one spellbinder at any one time, I would like to get the grand circles  to make mini albums, so hopefully they will have some at Ally Pally, which is not long now!! I love my trips there, I shall be wearing my WOYWW badge and hopefully can meet some of you guys!!! well on my desk is some of the cut outs I have done as I needed to play with the calibur as soon as it arrived!!!
If you are wondering why I am showing whats on my desk it is all down to the lovely Julia over at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/   come over and have a look at desks from all over the world (great fun) and dont be shy join in !!! be warned its addictive..... Hugs May x x x x

Lucky, lucky you May!! Am pea green here :(

Thankfully, most stamps are self adhesive now, even the silly denominations - thank goodness! Tales of what goes into the glue don't bear thinking about :(

Wow - you lucky girl. What a lovely DH to buy you such a lovely and useful present. With the GC, the world really is open to lots of creativity, like you say, the grand circles will enable you to make mini albums - then you can start to collect the other shapes.

Loads of things to play with - that you busy for a while!

Hi May,
Thank you for your sweet words. Yes, I believe in Rainbow Bridge and I'll have an entire pack waiting for me. I've had pets all my life and each one brings so much joy, but heartbreak in the end. It is still worth it.

Look at all the fun things on your desk!! Your DH did well!!! Have fun crafting.

Hugs,
Kay

Hi May, well look at you with your lovely new GC and all those gorgeous dies - I recognise Sue Wilson's own designs there too. I love my Cuttlebug but I can see the advantages of the GC and have added it to my wishlist and dropped mammoth hints so we shall see. In the meantime, I wish you many happy hours die-cutting :) Elizabeth x #145

Thank you for your visit this week. We have had another couple of bees but nowhere near the number of last week, so I hope we are coming to the end of that, although I went to pick up my toothbrush the other day to find a wasp staring back at me - seriously scary. have a good time at Ally Pally when you get there. xx Maggie #7
