WOYWW 165

Hi Everyone and welcome to Weds 1st Aug.. Time flies... or I'm getting older one of the two!! Well today on my desk I have had a wee stamping session with my new stamps from last week.. made a little card in the background.. need to do some more the papers are cut just got to cut out the fab images.. the two Gorjuss girl stamps are a gift to a friend.. so I will be popping them in the post soon.. I did treat myself to the set of nesties its called  Wings of hope.. I got it for the wings rather than the butterflies.. but I am sure they will be beautiful also... Well if you are wondering why I'm saying soooo much about my desk it's all down to the lovely Julie over at
 http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/  Pop over and have a trip around the world's desk's join in if you like... But be warned it's very addictive! but fun...Thank you for your visit... Hugs May x x x

These look really nice... never really thought about using this time of image, but they do make lovely cards and scrap pages. Have a great week! Happy WOYWW!?

The stamped off images look great. I like to stamp a few as well....if I get the stamp dirty I like to make it worthwhile!
Your card is lovely...I'm sure your friend is going to love it. Lucky girl.

Hi May,

When I stamp images I cut the paper before I stamp -- but I've noticed several WOYWWers stamp an entire sheet. Is that how you always do it?

Happy WOYWW

What fabulous stamps - must investigate those as I can't say I saw them last week. Did I miss you out? Sorry if I did.
The card in shades of brown looks wonderful at the back, as do the new dies you have got.
Thanks for sharing - Hugs, neet xx #27

Hi May, your card in the background is lovely and I want those butterfly dies so much - for me it is the butterflies though, not just the wings - lol. Gorgeous stamps too. Happy WoYwW, Crafty hugs, Anne x #58
