WOYWW - pack up your troubles in your old suitcase



and smile, smile, smile ..... well try to, even if your desk is not quite as tidy as it was last week LOL.

Here's the close up of the suitcase:


and the top of it:


and the inside, which I've tried to make look old and stained:


The top lining just had rounded corners and only a little bit of puckering, but the bottom one is shaped and I've gone for a more puckered look (yes, on purpose, not just be being my usual slapdash self).  The idea is that it will have a Fimo vintage key inside and so it will be dispalyed an at angle.

The stamps used on this are the Very Vintage Set 2 - la Couture .... and that is the reason by desk is looking in dis-aray .... we've been working on the subs offer for Craft Stamper, and also as we have this featured in Craft Stamper this month, and our free image on the front of the mag, and 4 projects of mine inside, 2 of Katy's and some more featuring Play Time Set 4 - Nanny's Day off the shop has been quite busy .... ergo not time to tidy up or finish this suitcase - I need to do some labels with shrink plastic for the handle.  The mould hasn't turned up for the shoe yet, but the key one has - maybe if I can get the last of the subs stamps finished today early (off to Worcester early tomorrow with them) I have had a fiddle around later on.  Pray for cool weather it is the devil pressing rubbah in this heat!

I can't put any links to the stamps as it seems our website is temporarily down (tech guys are playing I HOPE), but you can click on any of the stamp images on the right and that will take you to the Toodles & Binks section to browse from there.

Right I'm off to grab a coffee and see quickly what all the other WOYWERs are up to over at Fair Queen Julia's.

EDITED TO ADD:  Just heard our server is down for Stamp Galaxy, Toodles and Binks and also UK STampers forum, sorry they are working on it at the moment, and will get up back on line asap
