This was earlier today, I’m getting ready for PanPastel background so have out pastels, sponges, and Xpress-it card which is lovely and smooth for it. Always best to lay down a light colour down first before adding more, makes it easier, with inks, pastels etc. here used light mauve.
Desk 2 this is PanPastel part finished and heat embossed the Numbers verse from few weeks back (here - answered **PanPastel questions** at end of this post) by Stampendous. I used the T section of the Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure I’d lined up wooden stamp correctly, with the measure twice stamp once technique!
Here is the offering for Mo’s challenge...
An upcycled Card, I started it on 25th would you believe, did bit each day and finally done by 31st! The verse “For unto Is A Child is Born” is by Unity an Itty Bitty Set, used SU Oval punches for the greeting.
A few Aussie photos today, firstly sweet pea in our garden, it’s totally confused, it thinks it’s 1st Sept and spring not 31st July, and winter. The plant normally grows to 5 feet+, it's less than 2 feet.. and flowering.
The rest, are courtesy of a travelling family member, firstly a double rainbow from their beach view campsite this afternoon.
Secondly a lovely (thankfully from a distance) lace monitor lizard also near their camp. Amazing markings.
Lastly ‘tis some fairy penguins from a visit at end of last week to Preservation Park (caring injured mammals, etc), when their grandies were in town.
Well, that’s me for today. I’m a lot better I think, but not counting my chickens really. Praising God and so thankful, legs are ok wondrously and am able to walk and even work in the garden, starting the roses on this Monday! just in time for winter work, eh?!!
Pray you’re all well, and thanks so much for popping over for a peek and chat. May God richly bless you wherever you maybe!
Prayer hugs, Shaz in Oz.x
Thought for Today:
Our God is never weary! This really grabbed me this week, I’m up to Isaiah, in reading my bible through in a year.
He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
