Morning lovely WOYWWers from a chilly Yorkshire this morning. What happened to Spring? We had four seasons in one day yesterday, snow, hail, wind and brilliant sunshine!!!

Anyway, it's just grey and cold this morning so here's my desk.

I am in the middle of making Easter cards. Nor something I used to do but after someone pointed out that although I don't send them, plenty do, it's now one of my busiest times. I sold all the ones I've made up to now and have an order for 4 more so it's keeping me busy. As you can see lots of cutting out happening.

Here's one I made yesterday.

Along with my Mother's Day cards

I had a snazzy new camera for Christmas and have had little chance to try it out so I took it in the garden yesterday when the sun was out to capture the cheerful colour that is appearing.

The happy Tete a Tete daffodils nodding their heads in the wind.

My white Camellia for once unblemished by frost and turning brown. It was looking lovely but that might not be the case after the cold night we've just had.

Tibby was keeping a eye on what I was up too and enjoying the fresh air.

Well, that's me this week. If you want to share your crafty desk with us, then pop over to see Julia at WOYWW headquarters HERE.

I have a morning of appointments with my Mum so hopefully will be round to see what you've been up to this afternoon.

Have a great Wednesday and Happy Crafting!

Lovely cards. Is that a stamp and die set for the Easter wreath or a topper? Nice camera work too. Sarah #26

Hi Lisa. Two beautiful cards there, and lovely photos. I only send about 4 Easter cards, but have made many more this year already - and still need some more!
Take care. God bless.

Pretty Easter cards.

That's the problem with Spring - the up and down weather. Drives me and my body crazy. Can't seem to get warm with all the ups and downs. This morning when I went for my walk it was -8C and on Friday they are forecasting 18c. Crazy!

Oh wow, that camellia is BEAUTIFUL! You really have caught that freshness that only seems to last for such a short time. The Easter card is gorgeous too, the lavender gingham ribbon is perfect :-D

Two fabulous cards in gorgeous colours, one of the best wreaths I have seen and gorgeous flowers on the second card.
Like the look of the cut flowers on your desk, I can see they will make a stunning card too.
Your cat is looking very mischievous.

Hi Lisa, Tibby is gorgeous! I do like the camellia, isn't it beautiful? And I'm also fond of the miniature daffs, much more than their larger cousins. Lovely cards, I need to get two Mothers day cards made superfast! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #5 XxXx

Hya Lisa - Tibby made me smile, peering under that twig as if to say "how dare you take my photo for your blog". Those are beautiful cards, no wonder you have sold so many, they will brighten up any corner of a room that the recipients put them in.
Love the Mother's Day card too, gorgeous coloured stamping.
Hugs, and thanks for visiting me, sorry I am so late xx 8
