WOYW Wednesday

Well, I am only home one Wednesday in 4 so don't get around to this very often but thought I might just do a quick post. If you want to join in or find out what it's all about pop over to see Julia
you'll be most welcome and you never know who might pop in to see you!!

Well here it is in all its glory but actually quite tidy for me!! In fact it was pristine last night as I tidied for a friend who was coming over but for various reasons that didn't happen so I have done this in the last two hours. As we leap into March, which is set to be a busy month (apart from everything else I am starting to feel the call of the garden) I am feeling quite organised on the crafting front. I have nearly finished a 'Marie Antoinette' fan for a swap - you can see the blades to the left waiting to be put together. I've been doing lots of gold embossing using my new Anna Griffin Lace stamps - I saw them a while ago and was lusting after them and finally gave in last week when watching the QVC shopping channel (Ah the perils of being at home sick - TV and internet shopping is just too easy!!). I also succumbed to the temptation of some Tim Holtz embossing folders and you can see I have used one on a male birthday card I need for next week. You can also see that I am not very inspired when it comes to male cards lol. However I can see that particular folder becoming a favourite.

I have also been a very lucky bunny this week - I received two gifts in the post this week. One was a lovely stamped canvas from Georgina and the second is a geisha bookmark from Jinny for signing up to her Pay It Forward challenge. Thanks guys!!

I am going to be uploading my own PIF challenge and giveaway on Saturday so don't forget to come back. And speaking of giveaways, can I suggest you pop over to see Laura at Artfully Musing who has the most lovely Art Draw on her blog. Her work is really beautiful.

Hey Cindy, this is the first time I've been to your blog. I think your desk is lovely! Mine is a huge mess. Your card is great too, I've never used embossing folders but that has produced a really great result. I think I'll have to find out more about them now!

Hi Cindy, I love your flowery tablecloth. Your fan looks lovely. I've used that same embossing folder on a male birthday card too - great minds think alike - lol! I was really good last week when watching QVC and only bought one Tim Holtz item - the rosette die - and some Claudine H stamps too. I was so tempted by the Vagabond but managed to resist!
