WOYWW 380 & 50th

Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."


Good morning!  How are all my crafty friends?  :)  I missed last week, I guess my excuse is it was our 50th wedding anniversary on the third and we went on a short get-a-way.  Would you believe we went back to where we went on our honeymoon?  We went back to the same restaurant, too.  We have the original ticket; it was $2.50 each.  This time for same thing as then, it was $16.00!  We had a delightful time!

First photo is of my desk for the What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, as we show our desks.  Check our hostess Julia's Stamping Ground to see what the rest of the deskers are doing.

I got a goodie envelope from my Stampin' Up! demo, Kelly, this week , just for ordering!
Beautiful Christmas and fun Halloween papers, ribbon, enamel dots, and the cutest little charm from the Christmas Trinkets. Best of all a sweet little note thanking me for my business!  Other items, some cut, fold, & tuck dies from Spellbinders that I picked up at Tuesday Morning.  A LOTV image I am going to color for a Christmas card.  Oh, and I tried using the brass stencils thru the Big Shot, didn't do anything  I must doing something wrong!  Well, you get an idea what is going on here.  Now, I must go see what you are doing!




Next is a photo of some of the gorgeous hand made cards for us and the other kind too.  I made the box and matching card for my husband. The card to the left of the box is from my BFF whose 50th was earlier this Summer.  She and I have known each other since 7th grade, (57 yrs.) She is 24 days older than me.  Just saying.  Thank you to my lovely friends for all your best wishes and cards! Oh, the background for the cards is a photo our son took and  had enlarged and put on wood for us.  It is on our mantle.  Of course the cards are in front of the statue of liberty and a ship in front of it. :)


Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments.  Off to see you!

WOYWW 378

Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Good Morning!  Another Wednesday look at desks all around the world!  You can check out the others at Stamping Ground.  But here is a quick look at mine.  I have been working on a Tea Party card for the Splitcoast Stampers' Teapotter Tickle Challenge.  I was trying to make a pocket card.  hmmm.    I see, that it is time to change my calendar out.  What happened to August? Oh, and there is my Color Coach from SU!  Did they stop making them? I didn't see one or cards for the new In Colors in the new catty.  Then you see how  I ruined three sheets of 12x12 trying to make this card.  I have never been good at special folds and special cuts cards.  But it is almost done now.  I wanted it to be special.

Happy WOYWW!  Have a great week!  Thank you for stopping by and your very nice comments.  I am on the way to see your desks!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 377

Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Good Morning Deskers!  Oh, my goodness, it is Wednesday, again!  It is time to show our desks.  We all sign up over at Stamping Ground and Ms. Julia is our wonderful hostess! It just makes me smile this morning that I am going to get to visit you and you are going to visit me.  For those who are wondering what I am talking about, just check out the link above and you will have so much fun looking at what everyone is doing on their desks this morning.
 
I have been going through a photo box of the 1980s.  I am trying to get these photos scrapped.  Two pages done so far, as you see below.  It is an overwhelming project!  The photos are in envelopes with the year or event written on them.  They are in these envelopes in a box, because someone told me about 20 years ago, to take them out of those sticky albums, because they would be ruined.  So I did. Sometimes, I wished I had left them in there! Also, this is just one box; I have boxes for the 70s and 90s, too!   Oh, well! Here is my desk this morning.  I have to add that it has been a fun time going down memory lane!  Even my husband has enjoyed looking at these again!



Thank you for stopping by!  I hope to stop by your space today, too! Have a great week!

WOYWW 376 ( What is On Your Workdesk? Wednesday)

Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Good morning, fellow deskers!  It is finally cooling down a bit.  Maybe just lower nineties today! If I go early enough, I will be able to walk before it warms up.  It is difficult to get  steps in when it is so hot.  I can usually walk three miles in an hour. If I can get out this morning before it warms up  that will help with the steps. You can check out my virtual walk on Walking 4 Fun on my sidebar. I am virtually walking the Appalachian Trail.    I hope you are having a blessed day.  The reason we are here,  is to show our desks.  So here is what mine looks like ths morning.
I have been working on a card for a challenge on SCS, using a SU! set that I have had for a year, but not used.  You can see a container of sequins that are fun to play with.  A SCS friend sent a lot of them to me.  I didn't even know sequins came in so many shapes!  Also, you see a stamp set I purchased at Michaels this week, a smaller version of the Crazy Birds.



That is all that is going on here.  You can see more deskers at Ms. Julia's.  Happy Wednesday!  Hope to run by your space and see you, after I walk!  Thank you for stopping by and for your comments.

DTGD Cards & What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 375

Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."


Hello fellow Deskers!

I have just survived a marathon week of Dare To Get Dirty Challenges on Splitcoast Stampers. We had 42 challenges in 8 days, plus two bonus challenges before the week began! I learned new techniques like Faux Metal and plastic paper background.  I used some stash of backgrounds up from my Gelli plate and other backgrounds. I used stamps I have not used in years.  There is something about DTGD that inspires you to use your stash and your stamps and your supplies of embellishments!  These challenges really get the creative juices going!  I have so much fun every year doing these challenges.  Splitcoast Stampers does this for their Fan Club Members as a reward!  The Dirty Girls or Dirty Dozen and alumni are fabulous hostesses!   I had so much fun chatting with the other participants as we encouraged each other to the finish line! The fruits of my labor are  8 more Christmas cards, 9 birthday cards, 3 thinking of you cards, 2 sympathy cards, 1 very special anniversary card, and gift box, (for my husband for our anniversary) 1 thank you, and 17 friendship cards, that could be birthday or any occasion cards. I have already mailed out 8 or 9 of the cards.  Here is the photo I promised:



Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to stop by Julia's to check out the other deskers!  Have a lovely day!

New Stash & Misti and What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 374

Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."


Good morning fellow deskers!  I don't know what happened last week, but Wednesday came and went and I didn't post!  These weeks just seem to fly by!  This week I am playing Dare To Get Dirty at Splitcoast Stamper!  So far we have had 21 challenges not counting today's.  I have done 20 so far.  We still have 21 to go through Friday!  Love this week of challenges to which they treat their  Fan Club!  This week, I will show my new things!  Next week, I will have the photo of all my cards made this week!
See my new Misti?  I have been having a great time with this new  tool!
Hop over to Julia's if you want to see more deskers.  It is so fun to hop around the world virtually to see what the other crafters are doing.  Thanks for stopping by!  See you next time.
