12.12.12 WOYWW 138

It's the 12th of December 2012 and as I type this its 12.12pm a.n.d it's my birthday! So what do do you do on your birthday?- you make a card for someone else while listening to Joe Brown's Ukelele album - a present from hubby!
Of course before that you take a photo of your work desk for the fabulous event that is WOYWW hosted by Julia and then you wait while hubby uses the computer, by which time you think "Oh well! I might as well take another piccie" So the photo here for you to come and peek at (Oh! and by the way, this is your chance - if you don't already- to join the fun at the Stamping Ground blog - you can travel the world you know!) was taken about 15 minutes ago!
As you can see I had several attempts at stamping this image onto a selection of prepared backgrounds(which is what you would have seen earlier) and you can now see what a messy crafter I am - just push it aside if it doesn't work! The phone is there too as I've not taken it back yet - must remember as I know I won't find it when it rings again - I confess to having to ring my mobile the other day from the home phone as I couldn't find it!!
So my next part to this card is to make a Hels flower and dip it in my melt pot - yep! got to watch Hels this morning and she's got me going to my poor neglected melt pot!
Thanks for looking in here, I will come and visit you after hubby has taken me out to lunch - we are going to my very favourite place The Willow Pool in Lymm near Altrincham - they only open in the day time but the Christmas decorations are spectacular and the food is always yummy! I'll take my camera and pop back later if I can! Chrisx

Great looking desk! Happy Birthday! Special day all around! I am going to try and visit a lot of blogs this week and make up for missing last week. I had a great time on my cruise but now I am so feeling the crunch of the holiday season. I plan on getting the tree and decorations up by Friday and leaving them till...?? I hope you have your holiday plans more in control then I do! Have a great week! Vickie #3

Hi Chris - darn! I didn't realise it was your birthday, so here's wishing you many belated good wishes. I bet you had a lovely day - I know how much you like visiting The Willow Pool. Love, Lindsay x x x

Happy returns Chris, hope you had a lovely lunch, and a lovely day! We work the same way...I play and push back until it drives even me nuts, and I most certainly don't put dies etc away as I'm using them, I seem genuinely incapable! Happy Christmas!
