WOYWW- New stash and sunshine!

Hello everyone and welcome.

I hope you all had a lovely Easter, the weather here was glorious and lots of gardening and decorating got done. (Poor hubby's worn out and he's going back to work for a rest!  
I have last week's desk to show you today as I didn't get around to joining in last week. It's covered with all the lovely things that happened to find their way into my bag at Ally Pally!

A variety of pretty things!

These beautiful stamps from Inkylicious

JOFY stamps (I have wanted these for ages!) and more Fresco Paints to add to my collection of 2! 

Yummy stencils from Clarity Stamps and Doobadoo. 

Well… being on holiday I have had a little time to play and so….

Trying out the Inkylicious stamps…. This one is 'Poppy Lea" I made the poppies from the TH tattered floral die. It's amazing how versatile these flowers are and can be inked, scrunched and cut to look like a number of different flowers. 
  Below is the other stamp 'Windswept' and I experimented with Fresco paints for the background. (needs a bit of work still) Sorry about the awful photo!

Windswept again but using DIs…

I made up this MDF heart (see desk) with papers from House of Zaron which was so easy… I cut out the butterfly from paper left over and inked around the edge with DI  - Dusty Concord and then some Treasure Gold and lastly added the rub on LOVE sticker.

A Spring birthday card for a friend...

And lastly someone who has also been enjoying the Easter sunshine… Maddie our Labrador who is 12 now and an old lady, a bit stiff and deaf when she wants to be! but loves nothing more than a snooze in the sunshine!

Have a happy week

  2. You got some gorgeous stuff at Ally Pally - those stamps and stencils are really lovely! I like what you've done with them too :-)
    My hubby and boys did sterling work in the garden too, laying slabs, making a new compost heap and shifting the log stores and logs. Think my boys know what hard work is now!!! I supervised :-)
    Are you going to try and come to the Crop? You'd really enjoy it you know, lots of lovely ladies and cake...tempt, tempt :-)
