Afternoon dear WOYWW friends. I'm a little late to the party today. I've had a lovely day out with my Mum which included coffee and cake and some craft shopping, what could be better and have only just got home, so, here is my desk just as I left it first thing this morning.

My very long awaited Altenew stamps (well half of them anyway) arrived on Monday and as I've been waiting so long for them I had to ink them up straight away. Not much else to see this week. I'm on water instead of coffee today and there is also a list there for some DT samples I have to make.

I finished my Prima girl card from last week. Here's how she turned out.

And I also finished the quilled initial for my Mum. I'm now on another one for a friend's birthday next week. I'm finding this quite addictive.

Well that's me this week. If you want to share your desk with us then pop over to WOYWW headquarters and link up.

I hope your Wednesday has been as lovely as mine. Happy Crafting!

Well Lisa, if I was any good at it, I'd have found quilling addictive too! How lovely the G is, I expect your Mum is very happy! And I can't think of a nicer reason to be late to anything!

Here's hoping you had a fab day out with your mum.
Your quilling is gorgeous! I have never done any quilling but that initial looks stunning.
Your POrima girl is lovely too. I have one of the stamps but i haven't used it much yet.
Thanks for visiting and your kind comment,

Hi Lisa, I love both projects and I don't know how you find the patience for quilling but the end result is stunning. I am late getting around this week and always amazed at the gorgeous projects on your desk. I have a few altenew stamps and they really are lovely. Looks like those flowers are going to be stunning.
Have a lovely week/end :)

Oh wow, that paper initial (quilling) is fabulous! And yes, atlasses and maps are great to use in projects but I can dream above those maps too... would love to take a trip to Great Britain! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier - happy woyww and a hug from Holland, Marit #26
