WOYWW 153

Hi everyone, welcome to my usual messy desk.... A special warm welcome to all of my new followers, you are much appreciated!!!
This week I have been busy working on a mini album I was commisioned to make for someone (see post below). The basic album is done, so on my desk you can see some of the tags to go with it. Work in progress as you can see.
I am going to keep this short, thanks for visiting and if you want to find out what this is all this messy desk business is about, have a look HERE
Work in progress. Available work space 6 square inches??


After a bit of a tidy

  25. Hey Astrid!

    What lovely tags - the rest of the mini book must be gorgeous!

    Thought I'd let you know that I gave Mr B an appropriate prod and made him go brush his teeth and get into bed properly after undressing - so so I could have a comfy night!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
