Happy Wednesday! I have this morning arrived back from a few days away at the beach and with not much else needing my attention thought I would join in the fun again this week. With being away my work desk hasn't really changed much in the past fortnight since my last WOYWW post. What's the big deal about my desk? Well head over here to our hostess Julia's blog and find out!
One supply item which was in good use prior to my departure was my Distress Stains. They are perfect for when you are time poor and I just love using them for quick random and colorful backgrounds. I have been combining them with lots of background and Christmas Stamps for some fun tags like the one shown above which are perfect for gift giving. You will find my tutorial for these tags over at Unruly Paper Arts
And they also make fabulous backgrounds for cards too!
Heading into the new year I have decided my word for 2014 is Time, so I was playing with some of the stamps from the new Time on Your Side Stamp Set from Altered Pages, they are perfect to mark so many different occasions with the various time related sentiments out there. Like Time to Celebrate, Time to Dream, etc.
Speaking of Time - this past week as mentioned I have taken some time out; and yesterday we spent the day exploring Mt Tamborine part of the Gold Coast Hinterland which included a walk through the rain-forest, a nice lunch and some wine tasting. So in finishing my post today I thought I would share one of my favorite photos taken yesterday.
This is the Richmond Bird Wing Butterfly which is native to my home region of the Northern Rivers of NSW and also parts of Queensland but sadly endangered. Here she is in all her glory just having landed on the Lantana. Unfortunately this photo doesn't do her colors of red and yellow justice but I love it all the same.
Wishing all my fellow deskers and their families a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and I look forward to popping by your desks in 2014.
