WOYWW For Garry's Birthday

Morning girls and Happy Birthday to Garry !!! Yes its my Darling Crafty Husband's 56th Birthday today ......oh he won't be happy I told you his age , I keep teasing him about how much OLDER!! he is than me !! he he I'm a wicked minx , bless him, well I'm hoping his Birthday present will be here before he get home from work at lunch time.
As you know I haven't been to well over the last few weeks so I haven't been out to buy him anything so I have ordered him a new toy, its due to arrive today, its a ............Big shot Pro die cutting machine !!, we've been looking at Demos on The You Tube and Garry has been weighing whether we need one or not !!! lol or not !!!....coz we do !!! so while he's been making up his mind I bought him one !! he he, Its going to make his cutting so much easier and it means I can now design bigger dies as well. But I'm not that mean I will be getting Garry a little something else for himself and I'll take him out for a meal just as soon as my cough is better .....you didn't think I was just getting him the cutting machine did you !! ?
Anyway back to my desk you can see I bought the new greetings farm set of ten sprouts and sentiments they are lovely but such great quality rubber and cling foam I haven't had the strength to cut them all up yet, but its on my to do list.
Also I treated myself to 6 of the new Tim Holtz embossing folders ....you gotta get them they are great, other than that its just the same old clutter on my desk this week
Hope you have a lovely crafty day 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 we can all come and have a peek at what you've been buying or creating today.

Happy Birthday to Garry and I hope he enjoys the new toy you bought him. I've been wanting a die machine for many years (since the first one came on the market) and I'm STILL trying to decide which one and IF I need one. LOL So I'm glad to see you decided for him.

Your desk always looks interesting!
