Hello lovely bloggers, happy Wednesday, here is my desk today,
bit of a mess as I have been making a new home card, a good luck
with your operation! and a Valentines card, I also have some
new goodies on there too! Hooray! One of my old favourite
border punches broke :0( ... it is the second one as they are a
tad fragile, any paper thicker than photocopy paper and it
creaks!!! oooh eek! anyway you know when you get a lovely
piece of thick paper and you think, shall I chance it? and you
do, then you regret it! well, that's exactly what happened!
The lever snapped, I tried to magic it back on by placing the
handle back where it belonged, that didn't work, I stared and
glared at it, that didn't work either! so, there was no other
option but to go searching for a replacement only to
find that ebay wanted a ridiculous price plus ridiculous
postage I thought "No Way Jose! they seem to be pretty
rare now, it's the Fiskars one to the right of the picture, can
you see it's sorry state?
So on my 3 hour journey through cyber space I came across
this little beauty by none other than MS, it is just the ticket,
so pretty and you get to keep the little hearts that punch
out too, I also found a brand new (to me anyway) craft store
that stocks goodies galore, and also wrap it up all nicely
with tissue paper with my very own label, what a delight!

I also got myself some paper stacks as well, because, well,
I, errrr.......liked the patterns!
One is Prima Melody and the other Websters pages, Spring
Market/Yacht Club & Country Estate, they even sound
wonderful don't you think :0) Happy Days, Happy WOYWW
and of course Happy Crafting, TFL, Sue xx

Sorry Sue, can see the photos it couldn't read the text, I think my iPad and blogger won't shake hands on dark backgrounds, this isn't the first time!!
Anyway, wanted to say what a lovely image you've got on your desk, beautifully coloured. I can't tell if the crafts B goodies are for you or from you..either way, what a marvellous way to present stock!
