WOYWW 24 October 2012

I can't believe it is Wednesday so soon, & that I missed last WOYWW last week... where is the time going to.

This week has been a bit mad and not enough hours in the day, but I have managed to do a bit of crafting, however you will just have to wait for some pictures as I don't want to show my nephew's card just yet.

So onto my workdesk, not that you can really see the desk this week!  On Sunday I visited the Simply Yours fair at Lincoln Showground, and although I did not get everything I had on my shopping list, I did find several bits that I just HAD to have (if you know what I mean)!

Of the bits on the desk here are my highlights...

A stamp & die set from Sizzix, I saw this over on the Hero Arts blog a while ago, but I loved the snowman & tree so much I just had to buy the set - after all I really do need to get cracking on making Christmas Cards!
I just HAD to buy both of these stamps - the Woodware Pirate set is mainly for my Nephew, he loves anything to do with Pirates (or Spiderman) and DH & I are planning a birthday treasure hunt using these images.

The Imagination Crafts stamp has the two super cute owls (complete with Christmas Hats) and they jumped into my hand and refused to go back on the shelf... I therefore HAD to bring them home with me!!!
I just hope I get time soon to have a play with my new goodies.  I also have plans to create another couple of photo tutorials, so keep an eye out for them in the near future.

BTW - I'm sorry if there are any daft spelling mistakes in this post... our keyboard died and we brought a new one, but I am sure the some of the keys are in the wrong places!!!  At least I know that the backspace key works ok LOL!

Happy Crafting.

  2. I was tempted by the die set at the Thetford show but resisted - not a good idea I will probably wish I had it when I see what odeas people come up with using it.
    Happy WOYWW

  7. Ah yes, I'm liking the stamp and die sets..specially the solid stamps, so much to be done with them. And is that one or two packets of Card Candy? Just so you don't run out, huh!!
