WOYWW 28.07

           
Morning All

Time for WOYWW again.  Here's my desk today.


I really do need to get some Christmas Cards made, so I've stamped this HM image in the hope that it will get me in the mood.  I really cannot seem to get into gear for Christmas yet. 

I made the roses using Grunge Paper and Distress Inks - I not really sure about them, they have turned out rather dark.  I'll have to have another go.   

I've not got any new kitty pictures this week, but I couldn't do a WOYWW post without any, so here are a couple of repeats !!!!




Anyway, thanks for stopping by today.  Don't forget to hop on over the Julia's place for a list of all the WOYWWers.
