Another Wednesday and time for a snoop around WOYWW :-) If you haven't joined in ,, it is fun ! Not only do you get to see other crafty places but you can see what everyone uses and maybe get ideas for yourself :-) We all like a good snoop eh ! :-)

OOhh ,,,I ordered loads of fabby stuff from Simon Says Stamp and the parcel just arrived :-)I have plonked it all on my desk for you to see :-) I told hubby I just needed to order some papers and asked if I could use his card ,, instead of mine ,,, :-) Well ,, he didn't bat an eyelid ( he may do when the bank statement arrives lol ),, so I sort of took advantage and popped a few extras in my basket too (wicked eh !!):-) Doesn't that TH spinner look FAB on me new desk !!

I ordered all the Magnolia papers ,, they are in the white packs with the red stripes , a lovely Pure Innocence stamp ,, love them all ,,, a WOJ Wee with broken leg ,,the new TH tattered floral dies and embossing folders , BG paper pads ,,, oohh loads of yummy goodies for me to go and play with :-)

I am sorry I didn't make it around to many desks last week ,,,had new windows fitted and Amy has exams ,,, so am a taxi service at the mo ,,, hope to have more time this week :-)

OK going to link this to Julia's WOYWW blog and come and have a snoop around yours :-)

Tim Holtz ones from the Lost and Found pad ,, LOVE IT !! :-) I used a Tim Holtz mask on the backgound circle and swirled some gold brilliance ink around a bit :-) The flag pole is a skewer and the flag was made with a bit of Claudine Hellmuth sticky back canvas I used a Tim Holtz skull stamp on shrink plastic to make the Jolly Roger :-)I did the sentiment on the comp it says Arr tis yer Birthday ,:-) ,,, all inked with vintage photo distress ink. The charm is fab eh !! it is from a lovely Blue Moon set of Pirate Charms :-)

I just noticed the little bit of a 3D pop dot sticking out from underneath the map ,,, ignore that lol :-) I decoupaged the sword and the roll of the map :-)
