What's on my Workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks.....up with the birdies this morning and it's a gorgeous bright sunshiney morning here in the North East of Scotland but the question is....will it last the whole day...lots to do this week and already it's Wednesday but that means it's time to join in the fabulous fun over at WOYWW.
I must confess the week so far has not been exactly productive in the crafty department apart from a load of personal cards I had completely forgotten about and had to rustle up at the speed of light yesterday.  But you didn't pop across to listen to me waffling on about my crafty woes....so without any more ado here is what's on my workdesk today.
gorgeous Hero Arts Stamps that the lovely Jacqui from Simply Create gave me to play with.....
so I've been making some samples for the shop....can't wait to play with the gorgeous butterfly images and I love making these dinky little scrapling cards...a great way to use up the waste from an A4 card when you chop it down to make a square card.
all I have left of this fabulous Bistro Collection paper and nothing goes to waste in the cubbyhole so I stamped some poppy images all ready to make another Poppy 3D card which will probably also be winging it's way to Simply Create and hopefully this paper hasn't sold out and I can replenish the stocks
and look what the Postie brought yesterday......gorgeous MME Christmas papers and stamps and from Hero Arts the long-awaited Music Background Cling.....sometime ago Hero Arts asked us girls over at the Hero Arts Flickr Group if we had any suggestions for their Christmas 2010 stamps....this one was requested over and over again and Hero Arts being the great company that they are... listened....I just know this will become a real favourite and will be used over and over and over again.
finally look who is sitting right by my side at the computer as I finish off this post....yes it's my crafty buddy...the sweetest bundle of golden deliciousness.....is he awaiting his instructions for the day perhaps.....are you serious he's a Goldie....he's waiting for a bit of my breakfast toast and then he will desert his crafty post and head off for a power snooze. Can't wait to have a rummage around everyone else's crafty spaces this week....catch up with you all tomorrow if I can get the crafty fingers back up to speed and get some challenge cards done.   
Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: crikey I feel faint.....I left some comments this morning when I linked my post over at WOYWW and managed to do about 20 with great intentions of bettering my dismal total of last week...popped back a few minutes ago and now there are 119 desks to view....think I may have to go and lie down.

Morning Kath & Buddy
I see those stamps from yesterday are on your desk this morning. You certainly know how to tease and tempt Kath. Aww and I just adore the photo of Buddy, you feel as though you could just snuggle up with him and cuddle him all day. Bet he'd let me as well lol.

Doone said...

ooh Kath - I know you know I am a nutter, so Ic an share this thought with you: you are just what I need - if you read the comment I left for Julia on her 'skivving' blog I NEED a friend in Scotland to visit (just for a cuppa) so when we go to Cornwall we can come home via friends in Wales and then Scotland before we head back to Derby (you will probably have to read my other comment on Julia's blog to make any sense of this one...) I have this crazy idea that a conversation can be had across multiple blog sites?

PS
love the Scraplings
