Wednesday post

Morning everyone,

I hope this finds you all well.

I love this new computer, I enjoy being able to do more than one thing at a time and it its so quick I get more done,  I also love the crafting and with the challenges its taking me into different things.

As it word desk Wednesday this is what it on my desk today. I was up late last night and playing with the gilding flakes. I think there is more on the floor than anywhere but it was fun. I just have to use them more often to get used to them, I am also loving the stencils I have a lot but never really used them, I will put some on the things I have played about with on Fridays blog,

  1. WOW - that is a fully loaded craft desk you have there Lilian! Have you been getting tips from Kathy?????

    Love the layout of your brown card. Great use of snippets.

    Hope to see you at the Playground's Bonfire Party tomorrow night. Sure to be lots of fun and fireworks!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  2. It IS a great use of snippets and it's interesting to see your desk too - don't forget to add it to the clubhouse


  3. Hi Lilian! Lovely to see you in the Playground again.Your link has worked fine - love the cards you entered! Sometimes it seems that the link hasn't worked but if you refresh the page (the curved arrow to the right of the URL line at the top of the screen) You'll see that it has in fact worked fine. I think it's Mr Linky teasing us - nothing that you did Lillian!

    I did grin about the gilding flakes - I adore using them but the mess I make is incredible! They seem to take on a life of their own once the lid is off the container :)
