What's on my Workdesk Today

Morning folks it's Wednesday already and I should have been setting off on my travels again heading for another 4 fun filled days with Fiskars at the NEC but had to pass this time around as I have a hot date with 15 lovely crafters at a fun filled workshop at Simply Create this weekend and believe me the old body is mightily relieved that it is only travelling as far as Alford and will get home to it's own bed at the end of the day.
But time for some more fun over at Julia's place aka WOYWW where all us crafty addicts hang out to show off our crafty spaces...and what's on my workdesk today......more Fiskars samples this time for the website....just have the "how to" instructions to type up...not my most favourite job sitting looking through the catalogue for all the product's much easier to make the cards than explain how you made them....but job nearly done and another crafty job ticked off the list.  Loving these gorgeous cards from Craftwork Cards.....from their Back2Basics Range....a bumper pack of 50 with envelopes

Fiskars Large Scalloped Circle Squeeze Punch
Large Owl Squeeze Punch
Border Punch Ribbon Slits
Card..Back2Basics Elegant Square...Craftwork Cards
And what a lovely surprise in the mail yesterday morning......a beautiful thank you card from my lovely Flickr Hero Arts buddy....the very talented Lin using one of my favourite Hero Arts images....thank you so much Lin....I will treasure it forever.

It's a  special special day for me tomorrow and I must admit I am mega mega excited and very nervous all at the same see you all bright and early.

  11. you know Kath I always think Wow when I see your work and i just realised why -

    your designs have a really distinct crispness to it (sharp edges like pre storm when everything is ultra in focus)

    your lines in the designs are perfect - so easy on the eye and they take you straight to the focal points,

    look after the Bod and enjoy Class,
