WOYDW? - Flowers

Morning girls we have nasty wind down here in Gosport ....that's the weather not me personally !!! lol
Its a grey old day I have been up since 4.30 ish with Woody having Night terrors I think its coz big brother is away and he's worried about him, bless him.
Anyway its Wednesday again so its desk time , I was going to show you ribbon today as someone asked last week but I only just remembered so that will have to wait until next week.
Last night I was assembling flowers with brads and glittering them with stickels and Tim Holtz Distress stickels ........playing about really , they don't look much sat in this old biccy tin but I hope when they are added to my work they will add a touch of glamour .
The bit of my desk you can see is fairly tidy-ish but out of shot is piles and piles of "stuff" so don't be fooled into thinking I have gone over to the "Dark side" where all desks are tidy desks coz I ain't !!!! lol
Have a lovely crafty day I will be as its to horrid to go out and if you feel like showing your desk , post your photo on your blog and pop over to Julia's blog and leave a link in a comment on on the WOYDW post so everyone can all come and have a peek at what you've been creating today.

great idea to make the flowers in advance - I think this is about something i could manage at the mo!!!

we've had some bad weather in Chesterfield - heavy rain, but judging by the weather forecasts, we're going to be getting away lightly in comparison to other areas. Oh well, I'm not going out in it (just mainly because I can't!!!).

Happy Wednesday, and happy crafting - hope Woody is OK - bless him. See they DO love each other - mine just show the opposite!!!

Your flowers are lovely! I really should make some up in advance, it must save lots of time when you are making your cards... I have never thought about doing that... but I am going to give it ago.
I think the weather is horrible everywhere in Britain today... it's horrible, wet and cold here!!! Just when we were getting excited about the weather warming up, eh?!!!!
Hope everyone stays warm and safe!

Lovely lovely lovely lovely flowers!!!
Luv em'!!! I love that they are nice and safe in a little tin too. Mine would be ruined before I got to use them as I would leave them somewhere then forget they are there and squash them!

Wendi said...

How clever are you they are so pretty is there no end to your talent, my favourite is the pink one with the glitter round the edges with a hint of green in the middle of the flower, something else for my list now (flowers to decorate) I wish I was not going back to UK tomorrow the weather sounds horrible it's lovely here in France

Aussie Loz said...

They look really cute Susie, can't wait to see them on your cards! I know what it's like with the night terrors... my now 4yo dd has them each night, at the same time... we're now trying to break her sleep/brain cycle by waking her half hour before it happens, they're not nightmares - just something her brain's taught her to do!! Makes for a very tired Mummy!! Won't be around for a few days, so have a fabby Easter xx

Gosia said...

Fantastic idea!Beautiful flowers !

Claude said...

Julia Dunnit said...

Perhaps Suse, this is why I don't use flowers - it NEVER occured to me to fancy them up like this - they look fab, and I KNOW they'll be a real lovely addition to your work. Hope you and Woody get a full night tonight, bless him. x

Kat said...

Love your flowers. I never seem to think about them until I need to use them.

We've had a horrible windy snowy day here. Would have been perfect for crafting but I had to go to work first and then have my hair cut. And to crown my happiness my Tesco order was delivered! Roll on my day off tomorrow.

Kathy said...

Flippin' Heck Susie you've got a LOAD of messages on here today! Mind you, as those flowers are so gorgeous I'm not surprised everyone wanted to say hello!

Hope you're better now - I'm sure the last time I popped over you weren't doing so good - fingers crossed you're all sorted by now.

Happy Easter
