Good morning people, once again I am trying to do the blog thing and this morning I am having to fight technology to do it.
So on my desk are these flowers, coloured with Distress inks


  and the card they were designed for, and I didn't need all the pink ones, so now I have a dozen pink flowers to use, sometime, along with lots of other "sometime" use stuff.
 The rest of the desk has a lot of other 'sometime' stuff on the desk, but it really isn't very exciting.

There are piles of half made Christmas cards that I can't decide how to finish, dies I am trying to work out how to store in already full storage folders, and lots stamps I am telling myself to put on Ebay because I will never use them. However the squirrel part of me tells me that
 "they are very pretty, shame to part with them"
 and the sensible part is saying
 "get rid, you know you will never use them, you are so uncomfortable with stamping that you only ever use the same easy ones"
I know the sensible part of the brain is right, but I'm just not very good at getting rid of things
Anyway if you are visiting me, thank you for your time and effort, and suggest that you pop over to Julia's page where you will be able to snoop at far more interesting desk than mine.
Bless you all

That card is GORGEOUS!!! So pretty, the flowers are really lovely :-)
Regarding the sort-out, I'd sort them into definitely keeps and a pile of ones that you haven't used for the past year. If you haven't, you probably won't again. It's cathartic making space in your crafting life - and then you'll have room for something new. Grin!!
Hugs, LLJ 14 xx

Hi there. Well done on the card. Lovely. And all those spare flowers - why not make a 2nd card - but leave it generic until you know what sentiment to put on it? Or is that just a little too logical for my rapidly diminishing grey cells? Thanks for your comment - yes - I'm talking to Serif about the pictures!! Hopefully I can sort it when I've a few more mins. Will we see you on Saturday for the team feedback meal??
Take care. God bless.

Hi Chris, lovely card. I always end up making more bits than I need for a card, got loads squirrelled away in little drawers and tubs.Totally with you on the stamps, I have quite a few I know I'll never use, just not my style, but equally can't bring myself to get rid of. Have a great week, hugs, Shaz #11 xx

Not sure if you get notification of reply so i will put it on here and on you site. The pink was a mixture of Victorian velvet and Tattered lace as I couldn't find the colour I want either.
