WOYWW #212

Hi folks, I missed last week- didn't do any crafting last week, as we went to the Download festival at Donington at the weekend. And here's the evidence!
 

Epic weekend, and the weather was quite good to us too. A bit of drizzle on Friday night, a bit on Saturday, and Sunday was glorious. I came home with a tan.And a T-shirt. And some really funky socks. Aren't these just the most awesome socks ever? So much so, I ordered some more when I got back, for Merlins birthday next month. She will love them. Turning into a little Goth, is Merlin. Beck said she calls me her Goth Nanny, rofl!

 So, to the desk then. I've been stamping some tags this week, decided it was time I did something with all the tags I'd inked.







Looking its usual untidy self, my desk. DI Markers at the back, various inkpads here, there & everywhere.A few stamped tags littering the back of the desk. Posted a couple already, more to follow.
Had some great stamps in the post today, thanks Fiona. Not had any Stampin' Up stamps before, but I'd coveted this humungous Swallowtail Butterfly for a while, and Fiona (Staring at the Sea) was using this script stamp at the crop, and I loved it.
Apology here to Debs Willis, sorry I linked to the wrong Debs to thank her for my card a couple of weeks ago. Probably wasn't awake at the time,lol. Still loving my night shifts, which some of you are finding very strange. But thats me all over. Normal, I'm not. I sleep like a log, in fact I sleep better and longer than I ever did when trying to sleep at night. It probably helps that its permanent nights, so I don't have to adjust between day & night shift.
If you've got this far and wonder what I'm rambling about my desk for, pop over to our Glorious Leaders blog, The Stamping Ground, say Hi to Julia, link up and come stalk with us. In the nicest possible way, of course. Its all done in the best possible taste! :)

Krisha said...

What a wonderful weekend you had! Stamping Up stamps are, or used to be very good stamps. I've had a few for 20 yrs, and they are still good as new. This butterfly would be one I could not pass up either.

Those socks are fantastic. I have a bit of thing for stripy socks and purple is my favourite colour. Glad the stamps arrived safely. The butterfly is gorgeous. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

The socks are fab and are those some lavinia stamps I spy on your desk? The butterfly stamp is wonderful. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#132)

KatzElbows said...

They are gorgeous stamps. I can imagine you colouring the butterfly and then masking it to stamp the text stamp. Your very own stamped collage. And with your colouring, its bound to be beautiful.

Thank you so much for visiting and happy WOYWW,
Cheers, Rachel #53
