WOYWW 416 - 8 years!

I just have to join in with the celebrations - Julia has been the most wonderful 'Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday' hostess for 8 years now over at The Stamping Ground!
I haven't joined in so much recently - I mentioned my reasons a couple of weeks ago and had so many kind comments that I'm here again with the same promise - I will visit as many desks as I can!

I do have an ATC for my follow on *number but unfortunately that will be it this year (there may be few extra goodies with it though)
Here is a clue as to what the ATC may be like…
 …and here is my secret - hidden under the napkin!
I will tell you that this is a very last minute affair and I used some of my under paper to stamp onto. The heart stamp is one I carved myself.
I'm keeping this brief - if you would like to see some of the gardens we have been visiting they are here and there will be more in the post after this one tomorrow!

Thanks for looking, Chris

You carved a stamp yourself?! Was it easy I wonder?
Beautiful colours youre using - everyone seems to have this beautiful vibrant blue... makes me feel quite left out lol.

Hello Chris, Happy 8th WOYWW anniversary! We are so lucky to be part of such a friendly and caring community as WOYWW and may it continue indefinitely too! I like the look of the stamps on your desk - especially the handmade heart. It looks like I'm sending you an ATC so do be sure to email me with your postal address so I can send it off to you. Have a lovely week. Elizabeth x #45/46

Hi Chris. Of all the days to choose my friends came round and we've been out most of the day so I am trying to catch-up with the visits before bed. The blue images on your desk is gorgeous, looks very interesting and maybe we will get to see what you've made another week. Many thanks for the visit to mine. Happy woyww anniversary, Angela x17x

I am SO jealous that you carved that heart. It is simply INCREDIBLE. Like you, I also had to join today. And like you, I only made enough ATCs for my PIF and Julia. I didn't even think to make one for myself.

Sorry I'm late in visiting. I had a commitment today (seeing my friend's children the last day they were in Wichita), so had to be away from the computer. Happy 8th Anniversary from # 1.

Diana Taylor said...

Love the hand carved stamp, it looks very professionally carved, you must have a steady hand - it's something I try occasionally and they never turn out how I want them to - my carving is very erratic!
Hope you have a great week and Happy WOYWW Anniversary,
Diana x #21

Hi Chris, I love the heart stamp you made. The glimpse of the gubbins for the ATC are intriguing.

Neet said...

I just keep thinking of all those lovely people who cannot share this sun with us in the north. Devastating!@
Glad you are joining in again, I do miss you you know. So happy when I know we are going to meet up at Port Sunny - maybe we should do an atc swap then. Then I can see your carved heart?
Thanks for visiting me and Happy 8th Anniversary - Hugs, Neet xx
