Happy Anniversary WOYWW! 364

I will post to say Happy Anniversary, but I didn't get any ATCs made.  I was gone last week, but foud out I could post my Blog from an iPad mini!  This week I am home again, but haven't done much yet. I will show you my desk this morning, since that is what we do for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?  You can check the rest of the bloggers desks here.  I have been stamping insides of previously made cards so I can get them into the mail this morning!  When will I learn to do the insides right when I make the card? One thing  I have been doing is stamping insides and  envelopes as I go on my Christmas cards.  I hope by December to have everything done on my Christmas cards, but the mailing.

We had an owl for 10 hours in our backyard recently.  Our other birds were going crazy, wanting him gone, but we enjoyed our visitor.  He was a Barred Owl. My husband looked it up.

Thank you for stopping by and commenting to let me know you were here.  See you at your place.
Have a great week!  P.S.  I can't figure out how to get the Anniversary Badge on here.  I had the same problem last time, but someone nice told me how to do it.  Hint.  :)

WOYWW 363 & more Scrapbooking

Does anyone else have problems with automatic tape dispensers? I love to use them, but sometimes they don't work right! Or maybe it is the operator!  Anyway, this is what my desk looked like earlier!  But I was able to get it working by just starting with a new roll!  And then I finished my scrap page.
If you are wondering why I am showing my desk, pop over to Lunch Lady's blog for details and see more desks.

I used recycled some old homemade Christmas cards on this page.  I used some old retired SU! paper on here.  For the title I used letters made with the SU! Alphabet die.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 362 & More Scrapbooking

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

Good morning WOYWW deskers!  Thank you for letting me be part of this blog community.  Also thank you for your comments when you stop by.  That is how we communicate at this international blog hop.  It is so fun and I really enjoy it. Okay, down to business!  If you don't know what I am talking about, skip over to Julia's Stamping Ground and check out WOYWW, and the other deskers.

Here is what is on my workdesk this morning.  I have been scraping for Virtual Scrapbook Night May Challenges over at SplitcoastStampers, and this is what is left after I was finished some pages yesterday.  Also, on my desk you will notice a new addition, a white storage cube that came with a lazy susan like turntable.  I got it Saturday at a garage sale for $3.00!   I decided to store my SU! dies and Embossing Folders in it so they would be handy, and there are drawers on the bottom, where I stored some other brand dies.  I thought this was a great find.  I don't look for garage sales, but if I see one when I take my walk, I stop.  I found this and some white book-ends too, which I am using with my notebooks for my Spellbinder dies. I had to ask the lady to hold these for me, and walk back home and get my money.

   I scrapped these pages yesterday. Trying to get
past years caught up.  I used BoBunny papers and cordinating stickers for the title on this layout.  I used SU! butterfly dies and SU! punches.  See, I am already using my dies more since they are right there by my work area.
   On the layout below, I used a bookmark I got in Alaska for the title on one side and I used a ticket punch for the date that the ranger had stamped on a piece of paper the date we ere in Glacier Bay.  I also used our tickets from the gardens in Victoria on the other side and a copy of the cruise paper for the date of the cruise.  I like using actual memorabilia from our trips.

That is what is going on in my space! Thank you for stopping by!  Happy WOYWW!

WOYWW 361 & Unfinished Projects

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

I am not doing much yet this morning, so the photo of today's desk isn't very interesting.  There are just some unfinished projects, some backgrounds I haven't used yet and a new House Mouse stamp I haven't used yet.  It is setting there to remind me.  I have had it for a couple of months, already. Oh, and some trash that I might re-cycle into some use.  There is a project I want to try that uses toilet roll cardboard. It is a cardboard roll album, I think.  That is it!  Go by Julia's Stamping Ground and check out more deskers while you are blog hopping.

Have a great week!  Thank you for stopping by and for your comments.

Remembering Mom & WOYWW 360

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

Good morning, almost afternoon! I have been thinking I wanted to remember my late Mother today.  It is her birthday and she would have been 91.  She has been gone since March 2014, and I miss her very much.  I am always wanting to call her and tell her something.  She was a faithful prayer warrior, and I miss her prayers, too! No one prays for you like your Mother does!  She was interested in everything about me, unlike any other person in the world.  I know my heavenly Father is interested in everything about me.  So thankful for him and for the fact that because of my hope in his Son, Jesus Christ, I will see my Mom again.  Because of that hope in him, I know she is with him.  So, as I remember her today, I look forward to seeing her again, someday. 

Now, why are you here?  To look at my desk, of course!  Check out Julia's Stamping Ground and see more deskers from all over the world!  I am working on a scrap layout for two challenges. As you can see, I have some papers out and my sticker storage out.  I even have my color coach out.  Down below are some cards I made this week for challenges on Splitcoast Stampers. 

O is for Ornament is a card I made for
the Alphabet Challenge and for the Christmas
Card Challenge.  It also qualifies for the USEIT2016
I used the Alcohol Ink Technique for the background.
The stamp set is an old 2009 set, Holy Triptch.
I colored the image with Copics.
The "Peace" is a stamp from RiverCity Rubberworks.
The inside and envelope are stamped with O Come
To Bethlehem.  The ornament is a Spellbinder Die
I bought a couple of months ago from Tuesday Mornings
for $4.99.  The paper is Lavender Lace  S.U.
This card was made for the Teapotter Challenge.
The theme was Wizard of Oz.  Since I didn't have
any Oz Stamps, I went with this theme.  Can't you hear them chanting this? I used Chocolate Chip with the woodgrain EF.  The card base is Crushed Curry.  The lion is from Wild About You, the Tiger is Art Gone Wild, and the bear is unknown.  The sentiment is computer generated.  The charms are off a broken bracelet! 

Thanks for looking.  I am late to the party, but will try to visit you!  I want to see what everyone else is doing! Have a great week!

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday? 359

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

Good morning Bloggers!  We finally got some much needed rain here!  You can just see everything greening up wonderfully!  The downside is no walking outside today, so will do my walking inside.  Or maybe I will just craft.  Below is a photo of what my desk looks like this morning for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?  I am working on a seocnd layout for my April Scraplift Challenge and the Stash Buster Challenge on  Splitcoast Stampers.  I am using some very old SU! stamp sets for my layout.  I even had to check out an old catalog to  see how they did the Christmas lights.  I stamped, embossed, drew tops on them,  and fussy cut them out and used fiber for a cord to string them across the page.   Also on the top left are some backgrounds I made using watercolor powders that a friend sent me.  She sent me very small amounts so I could see if I like them, before making a large purchase.  Also, below is a card I made using one of the Color Burst backgrounds.  I used Tim Holtz Crazy Bird stamp & die and the sentiment is from CC's Designs.  The eyes are  homemade enamel dots.  If you want to know about them check out my post from Oct. 8, 2014.

  So what is on your workdesk this morning?  Go to Stamping Ground and check out the other deskers and link a photo of yours.

Well, I am off to check out some deskers!  Thank you so much for stopping by and saying "hi".

Have a wonderful week!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 358 & Back to Normal

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

Good Morning!  As you can see by photo below, things are back to normal.  Carpet is dried out, and room is put back to rights. I even found some surprises when moving items out and back into their places!   With the interest in adult coloring books, I had picked up a few. And now, I have  found pencils and markers that were hiding in my stash and have never been used.  I have started using them.  I especially like the glaze and the glitter markers.  Isn't it fun to rediscover items in your stash!

Have a wonderful week, and if you want to see more craft desks check out Stamping Ground, where there are a number of Bloggers connecting from all over the world.

Thanks for stopping by! Off to see what your desk looks like. Happy WOYWW!
