Hi folks, I am going to make the lovely Julia the WOYWW queen, a very happy lady today. A very short post because I have just finished some cards and posted them to great niece and nephew, and all that is on my desk is 50th birthday card for a friend and some general clutter.
 So there you have view of my tool box and bits beyond it, and the card on my glass cutting mat.
The eagle eyed might also see Max sitting on the floor in front of the cupboard. Didn't realise he was there.

And here you can see the card. She said she was 25 again so that's what the card says although there are very pale stamps of 50th on the paper.

Well that's all for now,
I'm out all day today, so probably will not be able to visit until Thursday, but will then I will have a whale of a time.

Bye for now

I love looking at the clutter to see what we all have in common on our desks... in fact one of those pairs of scissors looks very familiar.... unfortunately my pinflair isn't as neatly rolled as yours! I love the 50th card - 2 x 25 = 50 after all. Brilliant. Happy WOYWW and Happy Easter, Cindy #59

Great card, Chris, and lots of goodies to play with on your desk. Easter blessings, Chris # 31

Lolol - I love the idea behind that 50th card...she'll love it! I always say I'm 32 with 20 years' experience :-)
I know someone who puppy walks up in the Wirral so it was a cause that I think is important.
Hugs, LLJ 37 xx

Nice card! I like the 25th birthday on there twice, very clever! Luckily the snow is all but gone, it was a minor blip and Spring will soon march on again. That was my first attempt with the punchinella, I did tape it down so it wouldn't shift, and I dabbed the inks on to scrap paper to decide the colours, but that's all. Have a go! enjoy your Easter.

Thanks for the desk visit. Your Max and my Marmalade look related! He has fallen in the lap of luxury, that is for sure! No I am not raising funds for cancer, though just talking about it cos of my hair has saved two peeps I know who went for their mammograms and have just had lumpectomies...the more ladies I can save the better. Making peeps aware is what I am doing. Claire found her lump too late. She should have gone for mammograms and didn't. Your desk looks very inviting and come to think of it, I should be making some 21 again cards for a few people! #36
