What's On Your Work Desk? Wednesday #279

Hello, hello and good afternoon on this rather grey but dry Wednesday.  I'm a tad late posting this weeks WOYWW post - want to know more about WOYWW or fancy joining in the fun then pop over the Stamping Ground where all will be revealed.

On my desk today are 2 shop bought cards............yes yes I know but these are so cute.  Well okay I'll let you into a secret I'm not actually going to send them to anyone.  I bought them to use as stencils!!! innovative or what eh?  Want to know where I got them from?  Ahhh heck okay I like to share and I'm nice like that hahaha - Paperchase yep good old Paperchase.  There were a few other designs but I opted for these two (for now) and at £2.50 each you can't grumble.  It's a nice weight so can easily get some good use from them.

Well that's me for today.  I'm going to link this to #blogtoberfest14 for day #8 of blogging - find out more here at Shells in the Bush

Hi Anita,

I must confess, I buy cards AND actually use them! tee hee. I can see why these two caught your eye and aren't you the clever one! You'll have to show us how they work.

Good new on the phone front. I actually HAVE insurance so will be getting my new phone today! yay.

Thank you for visiting me already!
Happy belated WOYWW
Peace, Kay (66)

PS If you took off the verifyer I bet you'd get more comments...

Hi Anita, I am always on the look out for cards which I can use for inspiration and Paperchase have some great examples.
Happy crafting, Angela x

Beautiful stencils! And I think it's a great idea! Please show us the results when you've played with them.
Sorry I'm a day late but I had to watch the great British Bake Off final yesterday!
Have a good week!

Good idea! And to think I actually ignored Paperchase at weekend.
Yes, remember Brusho's from years ago - now they have hit the papercrafting industry with a bang!
Please visit me today and join in the blog hop.
Hugs, Neet xx

Great idea, Anita. They are beautiful and will make great stencils. I've never bought cards to use or repurpose like that, but I have used ones that have been sent to me - there are quite a lot of commercial cards now with quite good embellishments on them that are worth recycling, and bits that can be cut out and re-used.

Happy belated WOYWW,
