WOYWW #251

Good morning WOYWWers, had the lurgy (cold/flu type thingy) the last couple of weeks so haven't felt like doing much blogging, still got the lurgy but just a bad cough now. Had a great weekend as I used my birthday present from December - tickets to the Hobbycraft show at the NEC in Birmingham. not as good as in previous years and definitely more sewing/textiles than papercraft. Anyway, on my workdesk this week are all my crafty purchases:

I've cheated a bit as I have sneaked in some new Sheena stamps, which although not bought at the NEC arrived this week from C & C. The rest of my purchases consist of Lavinia stamps, Sweet Poppy stencils, masks, more DI's and some MDF hearts - bargain at 30p each. Here is a close up:

I have made cards this week but, as they are mothers day cards I can only show a sneak peak:

And as I can't show a finished card today how about two cute dogs instead?

This is my little madam Jess (the Westie) and her new "aunty" Molly, not sure if she looks as if she is sharing the ball or guarding it!

If you are wondering what all this WOYWW business is about visit Julia's blog to see what its all about.

That's all for now

  1. WOW now that is a haul of crafty goodness from the show. I always love new stamps, stencils and dies. Sneaky just showing us a bit of the cards! Look forward to seeing them soon. Cute fur babies! Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a crafty week! Vickie #49

  2. Hi Donna - your crafty kit looks fab - I'd love to have a play with all that! I especially like the fairy stamp. Don't forget to show your Mother's Day card after the event - I'm sure she'll love it. Your dogs are gorgeous - I'm hoping that DH will change his mind, and think that our having one would be a good idea! Thanks for visiting me for WOYWW today, and have a great week x

  3. Love that bare trees stencil on the left of your goodies! I wonder if the prevalence of sewing stuff at the NEC shows the rise of fabricky crafts or just the fact that the Great British Sewing Bee is on at the moment!?
    Hugs, LLJ 27 xx

  4. Loving your haul! Am looking forward myself to Ally Pally in a couple of weeks(not that I need anything at all). Hope your cough clears up soon but I know from bitter experience how those little b******s can hang about. Cute yorkies! Have a great WOYWW, Cindy #59

  5. What a wonderful haul of new toys to play with. I wish we had crafty shows around here, but I tend to do enough damage using the web....LOL
    Have fun with your new stash.

    Your Mother's Day sneak peak if very pretty, love your flowers.
    Thanks for visiting

  6. I am loving your desk. Unfortunately I was forced to go skiing so missed the NEC though I do prefer the one later in the year when they include Art Live.
    But you do seem to have managed to find some goodies to buy.
    Love your doggies, very sweet.
    Happy crafting, Angela #59
