This was my desk this morning, part way thru some landscapes in prep for a future class. Then I remembered a sample I'd seen at a recent show, I think it was the Lavinia Stamps stand, and a set of stamps from inkylicious that I've been wanting to play with, and I saw Deb Pen Pot use at the Crop ......

I love this image! Background blended with Inkylicious duster brushes using Spun  Sugar, Tumbled Glass, dusty Concord, and Black Soot Distress inks. Stamped in black soot & dusty concord, then added glitter with quickie glue pen. Then......the Tesco delivery man rang the doorbell & I spilled the glitter !!

Off to link this to Julia's WOYWW desk hop and will spend the next few days (ok, all week!!) visiting other crafters around the globe - see previous post for WOYWW crop homework sketch card!

Thanks for all the kind thoughts about my poorly knee - wearing a knee brace for now, waiting for referral to Ortho specialist. GP thinks maybe cartilage damaged :-(

Thanks for stopping by

Debs xx

  15. Hi Debs,

    The cat card is so pretty. I can see why you love it!

    Oh, good luck with the knee issue. I had one of my knees replaced in 2010 and the other is going to need a replacement in the next couple of years..... I hope yours is an easier fix!

    So sorry in being so late in getting around. Time management just wasn't on my side over the weekend.

    Happy WOYWW
