WOYWW #190

I have been making flowers with my new Tim Holtz Tattered Flower garland die cut.. I am so happy I bought this die it makes it so easy to make them as the little holes are already in the middle.  I have been inking edges and curling and crumpling..  I have also been making a tag someone asked last week that I show them so its hanging up there. Its the one with the little boathouses. The other one is from Judith from the 'Aussie 12 Month tag swap' that I have joined this year trying to challenge myself to do different things. More details here.
Eliza from WOYWW Queenartoypia her daughter Myreen and I got together last week and went shopping at the Kaisercraft warehouse It was so much fun, then we went to the Chocolate factory for lunch fantastic coffee, chocolate and more of the wonderful lemonade scones.  The clear stamping blocks on my desk are from Eliza she cut them out, isn't she clever to be able to do this.. I only had one of these so going to make my stamping a lot easier now. 
So here is my desk...


So you don't have to squint..

My other workdesk is thriving here is the tomatoes...


So have you all popped over yet to have a peek around desks.  Make sure you have a cuppa ready before you venture into the wonderful world of Julia's Stamping Ground
Thanks for visiting my blog and all the lovely comments I enjoy reading every one..

Have a great day
Sandy :)

  14. Your desk looks lovely! The yellow tag is great, might make something like it, if I work up the nerve to create with such bright colors! You really got it right. =)

    Happy Wednesday!

  15. What a happy looking desk! The die sounds perfect! I looked at one over the weekend and decided not to get it - it's one that you have to score and fold. The flowers look great but couldn't tell if the die actually scores the flower or not.

    The tags look great - there's so many different things that I want to try. Unfortunately my job just keeps me from having more time.

    Happy WOYWW

  16. Those tags are really something. love the bright colours in them. Also like the look of your flowers and am wondering if you did the ones on the black and white card on your desk? Great friend to cut you those blocks, I know you will treasure them.

  26. Hi Sandy,

    Just left a message for Eliza, and now one for you :-) Enjoyed the desk, the blocks, tags, TH die and so on. Do you have ribbons on a coffee mug hanger thingy? I've thinking to make one for my ribbons and just keeping ideas - this looks good.

    Dangerous going to outlet factories with an ally or two!! And chocolate to follow; I'm aghast, would never do it myself. Envious of the tomatoes; I didn't make it with vegies this year except for a great crop of rhubarb.

    Cheers,
    Ros. #3
