I'm a bit slow getting back into crafting after a week's holiday so only works in progress to show this week via Julia's fantastic weekly global blog-hop over at The Stamping-Ground.
I have been spending, again, as on the way back from North Wales on Saturday I managed to squash in an hour at the Happy Stampers Festival at Port Sunlight and made good use of every minute. I managed to get a couple of IndigoBlu plates, some Chapel Road stamps and some of the recent releases from Crafty Individuals, plus a free stamp for being a follower of their blog. The Distress re-inkers just happened to fall into my bag - I have the inkpads and I really NEED the re-inkers as well.
Also on my desk - a couple of background papers I made, some peeping out from under the inks and the other on the left has feathers stamped over in Versamark and then chalks added. The shrine in the middle was supposed to be crackled but I made a complete mess so had to be removed - have just swiped over a bit of white acrylic to soften the blue paint underneath.
The knitting at the top is my finished fish and chips babies jumpers ready to go off - need to find out where to send them now.
Last on my desk is a pile of envelopes containing birthday cards from crafting friends as it's my birthday Thursday - can't wait to open them as I know so many talented people and love to get handmade cards.
Sorry for the lonf post but I wanted to show you this photo of a beautiful bluebell wood near our holiday cottage. I love the colour, smell and visual impact of a field full of bluebells so was thrilled to find this one, and although it was hard to miss WOYWW for the first time since I joined in this sight made up for it.
