Almost halfway through the year and still the great Wednesday blog hop grows and grows. If any crafty person doesn't know about this - where have you been hiding? Pop over to Julia at the Stamping Ground to join in, or just for a snoop.
A full-on mess today (or yesterday afternoon when I took the photo) as the postman delivered my summer distress inks, the ones I swore I would not buy, yes those. I'm a sucker, but a happy one as I love the bright colours, just what I need now the sun has decided to poke out it's face and remind us that it doesn't rain all the time - that's put the kybosh on it now.
The ink pads are hiding a couple of journal pages, the card is one I made (and blogged) yesterday as soon as I could rip the packaging from the pads and get going - love that salty ocean blue, especially when it's mixed with the spring peacock feathers (yes I bought that set as well, double sucker).
As it's summer(?) the summer stamps are also out, beach, sun, sand and fishes. I have my autumn ones in reserve for next week when the English summer is over.
What else? Fabric and pattern as I want to make an owl doorstop, some beautiful hand marbled paper that I'm saving up for a special project, and have been since I bought it in Florence 5 years ago, empty paper bag, pink glue gun, oh, and some new stamps in the centre, yes, more new stamps.
Some of you may know that the England Football team (I use the term loosely) are involved in a tournament, or were yesterday as I wrote this. Today they are probably licking their wounds, complaining about the ref and making excuses for once again being bundled out of the Euros early....on the other hand?????.... we live in hope.
(EDIT: Well they actually won and it wasn't us who were complaining about the ref, the Ukraines were. Still it's only a game, isn't it?)
Happy Wednesday all you WOWWyers
