WOYWW - number 519!

I'm creeping in and hoping that you still remember me.....
It's been a while since I joined in at Julia's Stamping Ground and as it's almost Crop time I thought I'd better pitch in and do what I oughta!!

I met up with some lovely WOYWWers at Happy Stampers last Saturday!
Sarah, Shaz Silverwolf and me....obvious who is the big spender here!!
I also met Neet later in today but no photos - silly me, she was with Cath, one of my teams from TIOT so a total missed chance!!

Now, my desk..first there was this..
 I've been playing with some new alcohol ink colours!
Then there was this ....
I have been making efforts recently to clean way anything I have used and won't use again next session
Some new goodies...bought at HS!

I do hope I can get around to visit - my phone has been stopping me from commenting so if I don't visit today I may have to wait until Sunday!!!

Thanks for dropping by, Chris

Oh Chris, these are incredible stamps. You really ARE the stamping queen.

Yes, I would have loved to have "met" Cath, too. She is such a sweetie from her comments she leaves me. Glad to see you are making an effort to keep things clean and tidy on your desk, too. BTW, this is 519, not 219 (grin). Happy WOYWW from #2.

Lol, Chris - just giggling at your number...the ones I visited earlier were in the top ten ;-) It's a long time since I played on WOYWW, though I do still have my lovely card stand, made for me by Julia's hubby :-) I keep forgetting to use it!
You're right - I never even thought of getting a photo/photos...duh! We must do that next time - if we're there again....I hope we are. Jo's thinking of going next time, so we could have an official meet up if Joan's there, too.
You got some great stash - which reminds me, I forgot to mount my one and only CI stamp...must do that now :-) Hope your comments start to go through okay. Such a shame because you always leave such lovely comments. Enjoy the rest of the week :-)

A lovely meet up Chris with an added bonus of crafty take homes.. Look forward to seeing what you create with them especially the lace stamps, can't get enough of anything like that even if I never use them they are so nice to look at. Good to see you here today, shame I can not make the Anniversary meet up.
Hugs Tracey xx

That's a great pic and a testament to the power of friendship and the Interwebs 😊 Your comment about seeing who spent the most made me laugh, Shaz doesn't look remotely guilty, lol! Your new stash is lovely, you'll have fun playing with those.

What wonderful stamps! And what a lovely photo of you with Sarah & Shaz ... although I had no doubts just who would be partaking of a little shopping - it wouldn't be like Shaz to let the side down :) Thanks for popping by my desk yesterday, it was lovely having you visit. Love Debbie xXx

Hi Chris! Of course, I remember you! I even recognised you in the photos on Shaz's and Sarah's blog. Nice to see you again. Lovely that you were able to meet up with some WOYWW-ers and thanks for visiting yesterday. Perhaps I'll see you again next week for #520! zsuzsa #21

It looks like you had a wonderful time at Happy Stampers and all those goodies look amazing! I can't wait to see what you create with them 😀. Creative wishes! Jo x

Neet said...

I think by the time we got to you Cath and I were both aching so photos were the last thing on our minds. Do you know we never even went in the other hall. My word, you had a good spend - AI's no doubt because of Sarah - and I never saw her demo.
See you soon.
Hugs, Neet 6 xx
