Hi everyone, well the days are rattling by in January, am combining this post - for WOYWW and Butterfly challenge over here Z is for Zero and/ or Z is for Zucchini
As we're far ahead of UK could still make this an early Wednesday post + catch it for Mrs A's challenge. I'd been seeing so many nice zucchini cards ( Mrs A. defined it as greens through to yellows, so favourite shades there) I just wanted to enter.
So without any more chat here's my desky share for WOYWW or What is on your Workdesk Wednesday (pop over to Julia's and please join in - in about 17+ hours when it is posted in UK c. 6am GMT !).
|Yes, it's a bit of a mess, I'm blaming Jules for this. You see, Jules had brushos for Christmas and over on this post HERE she made a card with her new toys. She explains on next post how it was made it |
So out come my brushos, have couple of challenges in minds. I really should be doing DT cards, but here I am playing!! I went for greens and yellows, of course. First stamped two sheets of cut watercolour paper with Versamark + discontinued S.U. background called "On the Spot" (now Spots and circles are like zeros, or so I think?). Used white embossing powder on Versamark, then sprinkled the brushos dry on card. *Lime green, *olive green, moss green, *yellow ochre + yellow were used. *these are mixed coloured brushos, totally love the ones that are mixed colours that just go pop!
So these were my sheets, made a spare sheet for a Die cut with left over from watercolour pieces.
|I was also thinking of entering some other challenges hence the debossed
clear embossed snowflake folder in blue, still wet. We'll see if that happens...
watch this space (oh, and just a wee whisper, I've been accepted for GDT
too, from Here!!! Wow, still shocked!!! Very *thankful.) |
* thankful - my word for 2017 ... over at a dear friend Debbie's blog - see here - she was talking on her word for the year and asked us what our word was if we had to chose one?? Two weeks back I did a card, which had a thankful verse on it, and it was on my heart. A favourite verse of mine is:
"In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." 1Thess 5:18. Thankfulness is to be in rough times of illness or sorrow, as well as the smooth paths.. it can be very testing to be thankful in all things but
"we can do all things through Christ, which strengtheneth us". Phil 4:13
Note: the all things and everything.. )
| For my finished card I used a butterfly Die from China, only arrived yesterday, also my real favourite the Memory Box Pinpoint Circles. I
die cut the two pieces from butterfly adhered it on the Circles (or zeros?). Large piece cut with SB Pierced Rectangles. Left enough space for small "thanks" stamp on circle die ( also from set from China)
which I green embossed. I'm making a number |
of cards as a gift for friend, so making an assortment.
|This is my snippets card. Y'see, it started off the one above. When the butterfly die came yesterday decided to try it and the square set, so cut the two white pieces from snippets. Had on my desk a piece of gloss brusho left over from Christmas card, and used it on back so then hunted through the pile on left of my desk of pieces waiting to be carded and found the "On the Spot" piece made while back. It matched.. so this card was born. The happy birthday was from same stamp set as "thanks".|
|View north and south. We were under a casurina, so did not need our brolly (umbrella). :D|
|Some surfboard riders came down while we were sitting on the beach, and so put on a show the orange surfboarder (first shot) was amazing but only have one shot of him the other fellow on white one was pretty good too.|
|Also an update on our pineapple, (see here) it's grown a little but what I love is the purple flowers it has from all the recent rain and sunshine its loved it and so the bromeliad like flowers are showing.|
And may God bless your day wherever you may be!
