WOYWW 95

It's turning out to be a busy week for me but not too much to show you at the moment (Lots of secrets!) My desk today is full of stuff from last weekends amazing retreat and other bits and pieces that I am enjoying looking at so hopefully you will too!
See, all lovely things that I am loving looking at! There's my Tailor dummy, some buttons and flowers, all made this weekend, along with my notebook. Some atc's and gifts from some of the lovely people at the retreat.... let's take a closer look shall we....

Altered pins, buttons and flowers......

I just love this stamp from Tim Holtz (Umbrella man) though I do not have it so when I saw it at the retreat I just HAD to use it to do the cover of my notebook which was part of our kit. The purple flower pin was made by Linda for everyone to attach their name badge to. Next to that is a little booklet with chocolates made by Siobhon. And some atc's from Angela and Janet and Michelle.

I did this for the play date cafe challenge but was too late to post it.... darn time zones get me every time! I made the flower over the weekend using the Tattered florals die and denim. soaked in a weak pva glue solution and sprayed with shimmer so now it will keep it's shape nicely.
So that's my desk this week, more of a show and tell really but I hope you enjoy the peek!
So, head of over to Julia at Stamping Ground and join in the fun!
Be blessed in your art today!

Oh lovely. Would love to have some of this stash. And time zones totally agree just had one this AM missed it by an hour. We should put those world clocks on our sidebars. Your card is so pretty, you'll no doubt be able to use it another time. Thanks for the fun. Always a great stop.
