Happy Wednesday Everyone

And being Wednesday it's time to show all to Julia, over at the Stamping Ground, and to all the other WOYWWers joining in the fun this week. For a full explanation of what this is all about click on this link here.

This is what's on my desk now, in the wee small hours of the morning. I've just finished making a card and this is the fall-out! A dish of small stamps, seem to have been using an awful lot of dinky sized stamps recently so they have accumulated there for convenience. A dish of small ink cubes - I thought I'd use the shades of green there but didn't. Washi tape, stickles, punches, papers, scissors, stamps and black ink pads - all used. The enamel dots and green ribbon are still there from a previous cardmaking session - the finished card can be seen in the previous post.
And here's the card that contributed to what's on my desk now. The papers, Roses in Harmony, are from Hot of The Press and came free with a copy of Scrapbooking Magazine. The butterfly and flower stamps were also freebies, from Craft Stamper. The 'with love' fabric tape is from Docrafts Vintage Notes collection.

It's a brief post today ... I'm up way too late so should call it a day really. I'll be back later to visit as many of you as possible. Apologies to anyone left out last week - it's been a tough week, not been feeling too good but decidedly perkier today so anticipating a day of blog-hopping ahead.

In the meantime, happy WOYWW to you all.
