WOYWW 245

        Hi everyone! :)  I cannot believe how quickly a week goes!  We have had 14 inches of snow here in the past week.  Today, it has begun go melt a little.  And after being "in" for a week, I got out and shopped! :)  I went down town to our local craft store and found me a Gelli  Printing Plate.  Ever since I saw it on one of your workdesks, I have wanted one. I am even going to a demonstration on Saturday!  Who knows, maybe I will have a project done with it next week. Anyway, that is one of the new things on my area.  I also found some Graphic 45 paper, and a new stamp.  Then on the way home from there I went to Tuesday Morning, and they were unpacking these cute little jars of flowers, which I wished I had when I was making my red & Blue scrap page!  Well now I have them. I have jars of flowers, but never the color I want. :)   That is what cabin fever does to you.  You go out and spend, or at least that is what it did to me!   But I also got some scrapping done for the Virtual Scrap Book Night on Splitcoast Stampers, and even some cards for Virtual Stamp Night.  It all took place this past week-end.  So here is a photo of my area, and some photos of the finished products.
      If you are wondering about why I am showing you my desk, hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and get all the information.





This page was done for VSBN Recipe For Love, and February's Scraplift Challenge, and for February week 0ne Stash Buster Challenges on Splitcoast Stampers.  The blue printed paper is SU Regal Paper Pack
The rest is just from my stash.  A fun page of my 50th High School Reunion.  I have several other pages to do that will go with it. 

This card was made for VSN Weather Word Play Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. The cardstock is Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, and Just Add Cake DP, all from SU!  The image is also SU! Lean On Me.  I colored the image with SU! Pastels. I used the Spellbinders Labels nine die for the layers. The ribbon is just from my stash.



So this is what I have done this week, besides my online Bible study, Made To Crave.  I am learning that I was made to crave God, not food.  Psalm 84:2  "My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord, my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God"

Thanks for stopping by, and for your encouraging comments.  I have learned so much from all of you since I started coming to these Wednesday Blog Parties! :)  Well, I am off to visit all of you that I can.

  7. Sharon, a Gelli plate at last, I´ll be looking forward to seeing your efforts, hope they are better than mine are. I have those flowers too and you are so right, they are never the right colour, maybe we should pick a flower first and make a project to match!!

  13. You certainly haven't used the snow as an excuse for watching films under a blankie! Lovely stuff going on your desk, and I don't know what it's like, but I LOVE the sound of a shop called tuesday afternoon...,

  14. The little jar of flowers was the first thing I spotted on your desk! How pretty are they? I'd want a jar for every colour - not to use, you understand, just to look at!!
    Hope the snow has melted a little more...
    Hugs, LLJ 39 xx

  15. Cabin fever makes you do crazy things, only I don't think the things you did were too crazy. Now if you would have gotten one bottle of flowers of every color, that might be crazy. I noticed them right off and loved the fresh colors-red, white and blue! You are so right that you never have the right color of flower. The graphic 45 paper looks great to play with, warm happy colors. Your rainy day card is very sweet.

  19. Love you layout and cards. the first thing I show on your desk was the colorful 6x6 paper pad . I am addict to paper I guess that's why I saw it first. Those flowers in the jar are going to come in handy for Presidents day tomorrow :)

  22. Hi Sharon, thanks for visiting me last week, and liking the decor and hat! I haven't joined in this week because I was in hospital yesterday having an operation, and I locked my phone! I have been trying to catch up as my computer was broken, and I am still trying to find all the software to reload.
    I too had to have a Gelli Plate, got it months ago and still not used it yet! I even bought acrylic ink to use with it!

  23. Looks like you have a lot of fun stuff to play with. I can't wait to see what you do with the Gelli Plate. I'm not at all familiar with that. Hope that the snow has started to melt and go away.
