It’s WOYWDW and my prize has arrived…..yah!

.
Two things to celebrate in one day……I’ve never had it so good!

I actually remembered to take my photo this morning and I made a special effort because I’ve not joined in for the last couple of weeks and I didn’t want Julie chasing me to find out where I was and what I’ve been up.....she does like to keep an eye on all of us.

So here in all it’s glory is my WOMWDW photo
.

.
and if look closely you can see the afore mentioned prize from the blog hop over at at Stamping Fantasies

I can’t begin to tell you how happy I was when I opened it and although I didn’t know what stamp I would be getting I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed because I’m yet to see a Penny Black stamp that I don’t like.
True to form the stamp is an absolutely gorgeous.
It’s a Christmas one and who knows, it may well encourage me to start my Christmas cards early this year!

Oh ok, I can't be that mean to you…………. I’ll show you a close up and make you all jealous.
.

.Now how lucky am I and how fantastic is that!

So, what else is lurking on my table today?

All the paraphernalia involved in making my first ever card for the Cupcake Challenge Blog this week, which incidentally I’ll show you in the following post if you want to see a close up of it.

There’s also a big plastic box full of rubber stamps.
I’ve been promising myself for ages that I would have a really good sort out of my stamps and it was quite shocking when I realized just how many I actually had. Some of them had never even been used, which makes me wonder why I brought them in the first place but I’ve decided to try and sell some on eBay and make a few pennies to buy some new ones that are on my wish list.

So there you have it What’s on my Work Desk Wednesday.
Why not pop along and join in with the fun….Julie’s not really as scary as I made out…..honest!
See you all soon and thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful prize, I love PB too. Yeah, when I got my little crafty space and put the shelves up I was amazed at all the stash I had that I couldn't remember buying and hadn't used, I have at least been using some of the stuff recently, now that I know I have it and where it is.
