Morning dear WOYWW friends and what a beautiful morning it is. I am heading into the garden after I've posted this as we started our 2 week Easter holidays last Friday so lots of time for crafting and gardening, whey hey!!

Here's my desk this morning.

I'm in the middle of a card making session, trying to get ahead with birthdays for the rest of the year and having a play with the lovely big Prima girl stamps, I love these. An empty coffee mug...must put that right and just the general mess I live in on my craft desk.

I finished a card I am going to demo at craft club this week. Here's what they are going to be making. I love painting these daisies, I just hope my ladies do too. They did glass painting last session and enjoyed that so I hope this follows on nicely.

If you want to share your desk with us then pop over to WOYWW Headquarters and link up.

My garden is beginning to look lovely and springlike and I nipped out with my camera earlier. Tibby, our new kitty cat was also enjoying the breezy sunshine.

Well that's me today so. Enjoy your Wednesday and Happy Crafting!!

Ha ha that was my first though when I saw your desk- that coffee cup is empty! The card for your class is lovely - i would enjoy making it so I am sure your ladies will. Also love your doll - i have a few (cough) of these gorgeous stamps. Have a great week xx Soojay 23

The daisy card is absolutely beautiful - I'm sure your ladies will love making it. Did you paint the flowers free-hand, they are all slightly different which makes me think they aren't stamped. The background is so pretty too - I love the colours.
Hope you have a great week and thank you for stopping by earlier,

I'm having a lunchtime catch up with my fav blogs today as my curtain cutting assistant came early and I then went on to shorten the dreaded curtains first....they are all done now :-)
I love your card and such lovely photos too today. Your comment on my blog made me chuckle [worth rereading what you put ;-) ]

Well, that painted daisies card is just sooooo pretty💖💖. I'm sure your ladies will have fun learning how to do them! You must be having better weather than us cos it's alternating between blustery blue skies and downpours. And it's chilly too. That glimpse of Spring at the weekend has definitely gone!

Beautiful card. Daisies are my beautiful flowers. Looks like you have some beautiful flowers growing in your garden too. Just when I think Spring is on its way the snow comes again.

The card is lovely! I sometimes really marvel at creative card-makers. For some reason, I've tended to be stumped or out of ideas whenever faced with a blank card. I'll get merely partway into one and then I 'm stuck! Dunno why.
Lovely crocus cluster.

Julia Dunnit said...

I love the Prima girls too...mostly because whatever I do to them, they still work! I hope you got sometime in the garden. Today was nice here but the intermittent showers were hideous, and the wind about had me horizontal when I went out!

Kathleen said...

What a fabulous job you look to have made of cutting out the Lady image and love those daisy's and the gorgeous background.
Garden looking good, wish mine was, still looking dead but it is my fault as I don't spend as much time in it as I should.
Take care.

I hope the coffee mug was quickly refilled! That prima stamp looks lovely, I hadn't really liked them, but seeing yours has changed my mind! I hope you and yours have a happy and healthy week. Cara x

That daisies card is lovely. The turquoise and yellow background is so cheerful. Thanks for stopping by my desk earlier. Happy crafting, Max #26 :-)

April Story said...

I have seen the Prima ladies but haven't purchased any yet. You did a lovely job on the one sitting on your desk. Your flowers are beautiful - those on the card and the ones in your garden. Such a cute kitty. :-) Thank you for stopping by my blog earlier.

A beautiful card, gorgeous flowers and a very pretty kitty, Lisa! What a lovely post.

Thank you for your lovely comment - I am now fully recovered and can only think it was a 24-hour minor inner ear infection or something like that. Horrible while it lasted but soon over! Phoebe's bloods came back normal, and the vet has increased her dose slightly and we'll see how she gets on. The decorating is now finished and I am thrilled with how it came out - seeing my vision becoming a reality is marvellous and it couldn't be better. We still have a few things to bring back in but we are using it again and loving the new uncluttered feel. So glad you like the stencilling!

We've had an extremely busy couple of days because as well as the decorating and other odd jobs being done, the men came at very short notice yesterday to replace our blown double glazed units with nice new clear ones, and we had to move at high speed to clear the rooms ready for them. I am therefore very behind with all my WOYWW comments as I didn't have any time to be on the computer yesterday.

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #28
