Morning lovely Crafters and dear WOYWW friends.
I really look forward to Wednesdays when we all catch up with each others desks. It never fails to cheer me up and I always find something unexpected or a new friend every week. There are not many places you can go that will do that is there? If you haven't joined in yet pop over to see our esteemed Deskmistress, Julia, HERE.
Just before I show you my not very interesting desk this week can I just say thank you for all the lovely comments on the card I showed you last week. You were all so lovely and Patsy from HeARTworks asked how the white flowers were done. Just to clear that up, they were clear embossed before any ink was added and then buffed up to remove any residual ink at the end. It's a lovely technique and one I shall definitely be playing with again.
Well, here is my desk today. Nothing happening I'm afraid due to my spotty dotty daughter in the corner who has been really miserable with chicken pox this week and also very fed up that she missed all the snow at the weekend after waiting for months for it to arrive. We had more tears over that I think than her itchy spots!!
You might be able to spot some of my lovely Birthday presents that I haven't really had time to play with yet. Hubby bought me some flexmarkers, I was really impressed. He didn't ask me what I wanted but chose those all by himself. I have him well trained. He also bought me a gorgeous wallet to store all my dies in.The rest is stuff waiting to find a home, a tissue box waiting to be turned into something interesting, DD's toothbrush being charged and a new CD waiting to be listened too.
If you've just popped over for WOYWW I won't be offended if you leave now without reading any further. I was going to do a separate post to show you some new Paint Fusion flowers I have been working on but, call me lazy, I'm just going to tag them on here.
Sheena Douglass is releasing three new paint fusion flower stamps as Pick Of The Week on Friday 10th Feb on Create and Craft and they are beautiful. As a flower lover I'm in my element when we get these to work on although I only had two days to do my samples this time so there are not many to show you yet.
The first set is a lilac and is so easy to paint. I promise you I am no master with a brush but these are a doddle.
Well thanks for stopping by and keep warm in these chilly temperatures. I haven' t been outside all week as we are in quarantine and for once it's quite nice to be kept inside warm and cosy.
