WOYWW


Will have to be a short post today as it has taken the grand total of 20 minutes to actually manage to get on the internet, grrr! I have exactly 5 minutes left now before I have to get ready to go to work :-(



So what's going on today? (Well, last night, the photos were taken about 7pm and how flipping dark and dreary was it outside?!) New stamps from S.W.A.L.K, that's what! The only thing is they are larger than I thought they were going to be and I only have one acrylic block currently (yes people, just one!) which unfortunately was too small. Therefore, I've improvised a bit and used an old CD box (Depeche Mode, showing my age!) The result wasn't too bad, but I think I will have to go and get a bigger block at the weekend, more shopping, hurrah!





If you are wondering what WOYWW is all about, check out Julia's blog at the Stamping Ground for all the info - just click on the badge on my side bar.

Have a great week and enjoy the crafting opportunities over the Bank Holiday :-)

Great idea to use the CD case - this is a method i've read about before - but there's no harm in a bit of shopping tee hee.
