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!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 357

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

Hello all!  I wasn't going to post today because I am not doing any crafting, but decided to show you why I am not crafting.   We had a leak in our hot water heater which is just on the other side of the wall of my craft room.  Got a new hot water heater right away, but am still drying out the carpet in a small area of my craft room.  I had to move all the cabinets on that wall, and of course had to move everything off the cabinets and from inside the cabinets so I could move them!  So, I can't even get to my craft area!  According to Stamping Ground Blog hop, we show our craft area on Wednesdays!  So, here it is! :)

Can't get to anything!  Thanks for stopping by.  I will come visit you, and hope your space is more in order!
