DTGD Cards for 2017 & WOYWW 427


Joshua 1:9 "Have not I commanded thee?  Be strong and of a good courage:  be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:  for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."



I am home again for a short time! Just spent a couple of weeks of staying with my teenage grandchildren while our daughter and husband were on a missions trip to Germany.    I thought I would show you the 35 cards that I with  help from my Granddaughter did last week for the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges on SplitcoastStampers.

Some of the challenges were technique challenges, some sketch, some color, just a variety of challenges.  Now I have my stash built up again for birthdays, praying for you, and even anniversary cards. All these cards were made with items I took to my daughter's with me in a suitcase on a plane.  I took no tools, stamps, or inkpads.  I just took, pre folded bases, pre embossed panels, pre made technique panels, precut die cuts, and some embellishments. I just hoped I would have what I needed to meet the challenge.  Again, I didn't know what the challenge would be!  For a couple of the challenges, we used granddaughter's school paints. It really felt good to be using stash!  I should try this more often!

Our granddaughter, when she had time would take a break from all her activities and we would work together to do a challenge.  Then during the day I would show her my idea and ask advice between her music lessons, practice and home school work.  She really had a lot of good  input,  on five of these cards in particular and I left those with her to use. Particularly the drippy paint one!  She named it Icing on the Cake!


Thanks for stopping by!  So glad I could share with you!  Now to get ready to go to a 4 day Scrap Retreat tomorrow!
     Be sure and check out Stamping Ground to see more deskers!   Happy WOYWW!

Temporary Desk WOYWW # 426


Joshua 1:9 "Have not I commanded thee?  Be strong and of a good courage:  be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:  for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."

As you can see, I am still not in my craft room.  Today's photo is what my daughter's formal dining room table looks like.  I am taking part in the Fan Club's Dare To Get Dirty Challenges this week on SplitcoastStampers 

I have taken over my daughter's dining room, and getting dirty!  Granddaughter is even involved!  We will have to clean it up before Mom and Dad come home!



So, what a mess!  So what does your workdesk look like on this Wednesday?  Check out or even join up at Stamping Ground.  Julia is our hostess and would love you to join up.  As soon as I feed the grandkids, I will check out your desks.  Have a great week, and thanks for stopping by!
