Ah here we are everyone ~ another Wednesday!
Last one for September, suddenly realised it's three months Christmas - yes, I know some folks dont like mentioning it, but ostriches dont live here! :D
Happy WOYWW everyone!! (WOYWW = What is On your Workdesk, Wednesday?) Do join us peeking/stickybeaking at desks and work spaces around the world! over at Julia's hosting blog - Stamping Ground!!
Now I wonder how many of you do what I did yesterday?? I was supposed to making my gum blossom card (showed you the stamped images last week from RosA).
Suddenly I went off on a tangent on another card!
See below! There is the image in the centre - the brayered night scene?
Well, found it looking through my dies for the proper card. Immediately an idea for it jumped into my head and I was off!!
Here I am inking the mount card with foam for background to a deeper royal purple to match brayered ink colour. And yes, do work with dear monkeys + WOYWW frame there all the time :D
I will add the Christmas card in separate post (down below) as I will enter it Dis Snippets challenge and Sarn's Christmas Card Challenge. Here is my desk no 2! As you can see I finally worked out how to mount the coloured gumblossom image.
Caran D'ache pencils in centre of desk, as well as brads. Am trying to work out which one to use and yet to add greeting it. It is a thank you card to France. The tape is there as always use it when using dies. Need to attach them sometimes when lengthening or shortening die cuts in cutting them.
For those of you who may not know what real gumblossoms look like, here is one that is growing near our church, one of the WA species and is really beautiful. Most are yellow or red flowers, this one is clear pink.
I wonder if any are familiar with the story ~ the Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie - these were written by May Gibbs, an Aussie, written in 1930s for children (see more here and here).
Well, thank so VERY much everyone for popping over for peek and chat (you make my day). May God bless you day wherever you may be.
