Hello peeps.  Wednesday again?  Yep, that means its time for the legal snoop at desks across the globe courtesy of the queen of desks Julia.

On my desk are my almost finished November pages for the 365 Challenge (see previous post for my October pages).  I thought I would do pages to represent fireworks in a dark sky.

The eagle eyed amongst you may spot a new stamp at the back of the desk I have carved.  Its chevrons and I thought it would be a good background but also good to represent tyre tread for congratulation cards for passing driving tests etc (it all came about from a design I spotted on Pinterest and thought I could adapt it and make it myself...I can (and often do) spend HOURS on pinterest looking at stuff....I buy so few magazines now as pinterest does it all!!).

"Man Bites Dog" cards this week is 'Model Shoots Wanted Mob Boss'!! Once again a blinder!

If you'd like to join in with Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday all the deets can be found here

Happy crafting

Its ridiculous how much time I spend on there, pinning cards I want to make, then don't have enough time because I'm spending too much time on Pinterest! Love the colours on your page, by the way. Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #56 xx

    Hugs, robin #74

  4. Well I'll be there at the Pinterest own up thing! Lol. I spend ages looking, but it is good inspiration and many an idea has develop from it. Love the chevrons, I have a chevron stamp and it's fab for most things especially backgrounds. Take care Zo xx 81

  5. Fun pages, Kyla--oh wow, I wanna see your hand carved stamp close up!

    Happy WOYWW to you,
    #79 this week with
    a mess, bunting, and
    tiny book

  7. I'm impressed that you have carved a stamp, this is an exciting new development in stamping.... the possibilities are endless
    thanks for sharing

  8. Hummmm. This wee I see a classified ad rather than a headline: Wanted: Mob Boss Model Shoots. Pinterest is such a time suck - I do love it for inspiration but I tended to do all my pinning from my iPad. That stopped working with some upgrade or another so now I sort of gave up. Still LOOK at it a lot, so no real time savings, but I really need to get my pinning ability sorted again. Hunting around for things (Now where did I see that?) or using up serious Bookmark space (when there is no photo to remind you WHY you marked it) takes so much more time!

    Busy with DS's visit yesterday so Happy (late) WOYWW!
