Time to be nosy and check out the crafty desks from all over the world.  Further details can be found here at Julia's blog.

This is mine - I've been making a card for my future daughter in law to welcome her into our family.

  I've used the same colours and papers for her card as all their wedding stationery but used butterflies instead of the gerberas for a change.  I also made the card very simple as the one I have made for their actual wedding card is quite full on.

It's a funny size too so I will have to wrap it in tissue paper - it's quite big - A3 cut in half length wise then folded.

The inside. 

On the guillotine is a card for my son - again quite simple.  I got the idea of this one from Pinterest but I can't find it anywhere in my pins so I apologise for not giving the person who came up with the idea, the recognition it deserves.

I used a real match and my husband said " that is a used match isn't it?"  Me: "no?"  He just raised his eyebrows.  Is it really a fire hazzard?

The insert.

If you click on the photos you can read the words which I found on the internet.

Well, that's my desk for this week, I'm going to go and have a snoop at some others now:)

Beautiful cards, the butterflies are stunning and the match made in heaven is fabulous! (don't think you have to worry about the match as long as it isn't one of the red headed swan vesta type). Happy WOYWW4 Anniversary! Annette #2

It’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

That’s a very busy desk Susi, the Gerberas look really pretty but I really love the butterflies on your card.

Enjoy your weekly snoop, especially as we’re celebrating WOYWW’s 4th Anniversary.
Happy Crafting!

Hi Susi - I don't think a live match is too much to worry about lol - unless someone strikes it at just the right angle! I am slowly getting to visit everyone this week - Happy 4th WOYWW Birthday... Mxx #137
