Morning dear WOYWW friends. I hope I find you well this Wednesday and if you live on the East coast of the USA, I hope you are slowly emerging from all that snow!!! Nothing like that here, just wind and rain!
I love the fact that Wednesdays are a little trip around the desk world so for my Australian Desk friends, Happy Australia Day for yesterday.

Right onto my desk today. I took this last night but it hasn't changed and isn't likely to today as it's my birthday so I may be busy eating cake.......

I've been asked to make a 50th birthday card and have nearly finished. I just need to find some number stamps to fit in with the design.

Last week I was in the middle of trying to come up with something for my craft ladies so thought I'd share what we did in the end. Thanks as always to Pinterest for inspiring me. They loved playing with the inks and stamps and creating their own backgrounds and every one was different. (Apologies for the poor photo)

Don't forget to share your desk with us by popping over to see the lovely Julia, HERE.

Well, that's me today. Enjoy what ever you are up to today and Happy Crafting!!

Hi there, Lisa, great desky share, like Ve the start of the teacup card, it's a growing creation. I don't know if you have a set idea or plan, but I often just start with a leaping off point and let the card take me where it will. But sometimes if on time schedule will have a sketches and lists. Great Pinterest creation too. Happy WOYWW, nice to be back in Deskland :D

Hi Lisa, your card/s are always beautiful and I can imagine your craft group had a wonderful inky time. Australia day was quiet in our household but we always have a BBQ and finish the day with pavlova at my daughter's insistence. Lots of time spent finishing the blossom painting. Pinterest is always inspiring and I have spent much time admiring other peoples work. Have a lovely week and hope your weather is better.

Happy WOYWW. Pinterest is such a good source of inspiration. Problem is my lack of talent and time to get most of them done! Happy Birthday also. Enjoy your cake. Ali x #37
