WOYWW139 Thanks Dotty and a busy desk

hi world
 This week I received a very nice  award from     dotty The Leibster Award. Thanks Dotty I'm touched you enjoy my blog (just touched some would say!)
The idea is to highlight 5 blogs (with less than 200 followers) that you visit regularly and find inspiring.
Mmm that's hard! so many to choose from
I dont usually 'do' chains , but I thought this one is for sharing, so here goes ( also  I need something to do while I'm sat here waiting for my crackle paint to dry on my grungy monday challenge piece he! he! )
  So, in the spirit of good fun I am passing this award on to five other bloggers. Please stop by and visit them.
The Rules:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

2. Reveal your five picks for the award and let them know.

3. Post the award on your blog.

4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogshare-other bloggers.

5. Finally and the best rule of all..........have fun and spread the love!
 Here are my choices

Anyway that done back to my desk.
Why? visit   JULIA to find out  out why and see more fab desks and inspirational people.

The handyman and I are on holiday this week (staying at 'our gate', lovely but coldddddd out)
So I have time to play.
I finished a couple of projects this Monday
First from a couple of weeks ago a memory book from my nephews wedding.

Some of the embellishments in this book were 'stolen ' from the wedding, so was the table plan at the end. I didn't think they would mind.

This card is for my friend's her birthday today, she loves purple and flowers. But no fear of her seeing it before I give it to her...... she hates blogging!
On the left of my desk is a little bag with a silver tag in it.

On the left is a foot print from my Granddaughter when she was only a week old.
I made a stamp using my imagepac kit (I've had mixed results with this system, but this one turned out ok).
On the right is the silver tag I made with PMC silver . It turned out ok and is a birthday present for her Mum (daughter no 3).
Talking of Erin, I had her for the morning yesterday, here she is playing with her new favouite toy


Cute Huh!
Oh my this is a long post
Finally on my desk is the (almost) finished piece for Linda Ledbetters Grungy Monday. studiol3
 challenge is all about Mr H (you know..... The Distress Guy!) TIM HOLTZ

This is the first tag I started . . .  it's a bit (very yuk) yuk! So I started again. I dont think I have really 'cracked ' this technique!

This is also for D3 she's a bit of 'Pink Princess'.
 I think I still have a bit to do yet
Anyway I've shown you mine , now it's time to see yours
Hopefully blogger will be kinder this week and bin the white screen.
Someone put a link to fix that, but I forgot  who. Doh!
