Hello everyone. Lots of photos today of what is, and has been, on my workdesk. It was my birthday last Saturday, and Mrs D gave me two beautiful stamps – the Peace one and the bird one. Tuesday we went out for coffee and cake to Anglesey, and just HAD to go into the craft shop where some of my birthday money was spent on a couple of inks, a cosmic shimmer paint and some glitz. Also on my desk is a Christmas card made with a die John treated me to a couple of weeks ago, a border die which came in a package, and the Tonic Lantern box die. I have had this on order at my local craft centre – and finally it has arrived.

And this is how it looks when made up. I’m thrilled with it – even  if the ribbon isn’t the best for the job. This was just a trial run to see how the die worked. I used heavy paper rather than card – and it folds easily.

So, what else have I been up to? A dear friend’s birthday happened last week, too. I made a little pergamano box and popped her gift inside it. It is only about 2 1/2 tall by 3 inches long, so packing the little gift into it was quite a puzzle – but we got there! The card was also for her.

So that has been my somewhat unproductive workspace this week. I had all sorts of exciting things planned – a weekend away visiting friends and our family, a lot of time doing jigsaws and art work – but none of it materialised, I’m afraid – as I spent Saturday sitting in the A&E department of Ysbyty Glan Clwyd. Yes, John is back in hospital with yet another infection! I do trust they really get to the bottom of things this time – so that we can actually go to see our family and friends!! Preferably before winter sets in.

That’s me this week folks. Why not join in the fun of WOYWW – What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? Go to http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/ meet Julia our very efficient hostess, ands find out all the hows and whys.

Take care, my friends. God bless.

    Oh, Happy Birthday Pen Pal! So sorry to have missed it. And, so sorry to hear that John is back in the hospital. And, :), I don’t know who’s turn it is to write. LOL Great new things on your desk. I hope you get to play soon. I didn’t do WOYWW this week. Wednesday morning Bible study has started up again, and Wednesdays are difficult to have time to do a post. Maybe next week. Hugs and prayers.

    Sorry to hear your DH is back in hospital. Been away for a while but in this case it’s not good that it sounds like a echo of the past. I really like that lantern die. So cute. And you have been more productive than me … 🙂 glad to be back … finally! Mary Anne (33) http://scrappystickyinkymess.wordpress.com/

    Oh dear Margaret, so sorry to hear about John. I do hope they get him sorted once and for all. Nice to see that you managed a trip to our favourite island before though and congratulations and best wishes, belatedly, for your birthday. Love the lantern and the parchment box, is that all cut out? Hugs, and Blessings to you both Neet 6 xx

    I do hope that they sort out John,s problems and he’s soonwell and back home with you again. Your parchment box must have taken a long time to make with so much cut work. I’m sure your friend will treasure it. Hugs and Take care. Barb #24

    Argh..more plans scuppered. I hope John isnt feeling too bad by now, and that these infections can be given the heave ho, it’s very frustrating isn’t it. Maybe not AS productive as planned, but I think this lot proves that you did quite a lot really! The Pergamano box is a triumph – I hope your friend has a bit of knowledge about the hours you’ve spent on it! What a treasure.
