Morning lovely Crafters and Dear WOYWW friends.
Well, we've made it to another Wednesday hop around the desks a little bit soggier than last week but the thought of sharing some desk chatter is more than enough to banish these gloomy clouds. If you want to join in then you need to pop over to see our Desk Headmistress, Julia, HERE.
I hope I find you all safe and dry today after this awful rain. We have several roads under water and the river came out into the park but thankfully not into the homes that border it. We actually made it onto the BBC 10 O'Clock news last night!!!!! We got off lightly though compared with anyone living a bit further north. The pictures of the A1 are amazing.
It's certainly been perfect crafting weather so, without further ado, here's my desk today.
I've been playing with yet more previously uninked stamps, I told you I have many!! These are the Poppy Scene it set from Hobby Craft and I love them. My H20's are sitting there patiently activating while I took the photos. The mug is empty, a rare event.
Here is what I have been looking at out of the window, nothing to distract lately. I can't wait to visit all my Australian friends who'll have gorgeous blue sky photos to share I hope.
Also on my window sill is one of my Hoya cuttings. This poor plant has had a rough life after leaving his Mummy, my dear blogging friend, Jozarty.
She sent me two a couple of years ago and said they were an easy houseplant. They were nurtured and grew beautifully until this Spring when they started to look very sad. What was I going to tell, Jo, couldn't tell here I'd killed them. Desperate measures were called for so I tried taking cuttings from the ends of the poor plants and amazingly they grew. I now have two again growing very well but I knocked this one over on Monday spilling soil all over my little room. He has now been replanted and put on the window ledge where hopefully he'll be safe. His brother is on another shelf. I promise I will take better care of them, Jo.
And finally, here is the cared I as working on. A birthday card for my lovely Neighbour who is Poppy mad. I can't take any credit for this one as I took the scene from a card that was on Jenny May's stand at Harrogate in March. I painted the scene with Distress inks and the Poppies with H20's to make them shine.
Sorry not to be so brief today but thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely, Crafty Wednesday.
