What's on your workdesk Wednesday.

I'm joining the lovely Julia for our weekly nose at everyone else's crafting chaos ( I can hope that everyone is as chaotic as me right?).
On the kitchen table today you can see that I've been doing some stamping with a cute lili of the valley bunny stamp which I've been making into ATC's for a swap by masking off part of the image. My EK tools scissors are in evidence - they are my absolute favourites for fussy cutting, I love them far too much! The cardboard box on the right contains my set of 48 distress reinkers that Hubby bought me for Christmas (I know, so spoilt right?). On the left hand side in front of my cut n boss machine is my bargain of the weekend. Hubby wanted to get some electronic bits on Sunday and the shop, just happens to be round the corner from Inspirations in Preston, the craft shop owned by Hunkydory. In the shop they have a section for create and craft returns. 3 for £10. I got that whole brick of 3 packs (one pack is trying to make an escape bid on the top) of adorable scorable 300gsm patterned card in a mix of florals and knitted designs for just £10! They even threw in a free gift pack with some stickers, card, toppers and inserts when I got to the till. All Hubby's fault of course! Have a great Wednesday x


  1. Well done getting your bargain buys on Sunday and how lucky you are having all those reinkers - very special. You can do so much with them. I really like your bunny image. Have lots of fun making your ATCs. Barbxx

  2. It is always such a special feeling to get things you love at a lower prince. Makes them even better! Have a great Wednesday :) Shel/PaperOcotilloStudio #48

  3. That was definitely a good bargain!
    I made sure I had all my re-inkers before I took early retirement so at least I know I will never suffer from dry pads now LOL!!
    Happy WOYWW


  4. A bargain buy indeed there. Well found. I always try to take hubby with me when I go to Abakhan in Mostyn - he's so willing to let me spend money there....
    Have fun with those bunnies!!
    Thanks for visiting.
    Take care. God bless.

  10. Happy WOYWW. I am jealous - but then it is definitely sensible that I do not live near that shop, as I would spend far too much. Loving the cute bunny. Distress reinkers are something I have not experienced, but it sounds brilliant to have the full set. Ali x #42

  11. Got to love a bargain - especially if approved by the fella (or at least tolerate because he's buying too!) Enjoy! x

  12. Some lucky finds there! Good that you have a craft shop near you! Lucky for me that I don't! I have enough temptation online! Thanks for visiting earlier! zsuzsa #38

  13. That's far too neat and organised Cara, you need to visit my bomb, I mean craft room.

    Hugs Erika.

  14. Looks like some great purchases! And a very busy table! I spy a TV remote! I enjoy crafting to a good movie! Thanks for your visit and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
