Hello Everyone

Another Wednesday, another reason to join in with Julia at the Stamping Ground with her What's On Your Workdesk.
But, as you can see, there's not much on my desk. No crafting anyway. I've had a busy few days so there's just been no time, or inclination, to do much more than leave the supplies used to make the card  posted here, some new goodies, and the invitation to my grandson's wedding - it's waiting for our RSVP - electronically! My, how we have moved on. The days are gone when we sent a little card in response.

At the risk of being accused of enabling here's a couple of pics of the new goodies.
These stamps and dies are gifts from a couple of magazines found at my local supermarket this weekend. Perfect for all the Christmas cards I need to make before time runs out.
Being a bit of a sucker for stationery I couldn't resist this A5 size notebook from Tesco's. The gold foiled decoration on the cover made it irresistible, as was the pack of sticky notes - very colourful.

Yesterday was spent with these lovely people - that's our dear friends, Annie, aka Wipso, and her husband who are touring Scotland this week. We had a great time catching up and showing them some of the sights around Ayrshire.

I would have finished this post hours ago but for the very welcome distraction of a visit from my grandson, the one that's getting married, and great-grandson. It was lovely to see them but it does mean that I'm very much later in posting this than anticipated. So no book bit and no 'and ... finally ...'

... instead, I'll wish you a very happy WOYWW and a great week ahead.

Enjoying time with friends and family certainly takes preference over crafting Elizabeth. Nice goodies with magazines lately too. Happy belated WOYWW. Sarah #2
