WOYWW 321 and Beatrix Potter

   Col. 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God and the Father, by him.

   It is Wednesday again! And that means it is time for What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday!  I cannot believe how quickly time passes.  In retirement, it even goes quicker!
I don't know, maybe it is because I am having so much fun or am so busy.  It doesn't seem like I am that busy!  But here it is again, WOYWW!  Some of the things I have done since I last posted is sort through stamped images, scraps of papers, and die cuts.  I am trying to organize them for our upcoming DTGD Challenges.  We will have maybe up to  7 challenges a day for a whole week! I even colored a couple of images, so they would be done, if I need them.  That is when I found out some of my Copics are dried out.  I don't even use them that often!  So I am wondering what to do.  It seems like it would be cheaper to buy new ones with a coupon at a local store, than to send off for refills and pay shipping.  If I even need to do that!  Maybe I will just live with the ones I have.  I have never been into them as big as some are.  I like to water color and to use gelatos and chalks, also.  What do you think:?

      I also made a card for our Tickle a Teapotter Challenge this week on Splitcoast Stamper. I used an old stamp set for the main image (one that I had intended to sell, but now will keep) Tea For Two, and then two other newer stamp sets for the sentiment and label, Tea Shoppe, and Layered Labels, all Stampin' Up! sets.  Our challenge was to honor Beatrix Potter.  So, my card is supposed to be  Flopsy and Mopsy. It was a fun challenge.  I stitched one of the panels under the Copic colored image and put lace under the sentiment.  I used retired Baja Breeze, my favorite SU! color,  card stock as well as Whisper White.

My desk this morning.
I will send this to another Teapotter as a tickle. 

It was nice of you to stop by.  Be sure and stop by Julia's Stamping Ground and see the rest of the deskers.  I will try to get by and see as many of the deskers as I can. Right now, I am posting this at 1:00 a.m. on wednesday morning, and am headed to bed!  :)

  3. Oh I love your 'Flopsy and Mopsy'. And the teapot too. Great!

  10. Oh that's so cute. I love it when a stamp redeems itself!! I rushed about and bought Copics in a fit of needing them, and I can honestly say that I wanted my money. Barely used them but can't sell them because I don't know how much of a shelf life they have left. Turns out I want to colour in without having to learn how to colour in! So, in your shoes, I think I'd just use a couple and buy replacements...or live without those colours! Helpful, huh!!

  11. Cute card! I like that tea stamp set. I have never heard of Copics drying out. Did you leave the lids off? Maybe you used all the ink ;) The refills are way cheaper than the entire pen.

  12. It is sure FanTASTIC.... I love all your cards... I wish I could do the same :) - Thank you EVER so much for sharing.
    Kind regards
