Observant ones might know well that today’s Wednesday AND the 25th of September, yes, folks three months till my favourite day of the year - Christmas! Twelve or so rapidly disappearing weeks.
To my desk(s):
Desk 2: have just worked out good way to correct a EF attempt I don’t like. I’d used a CB folder not liked it on card base which is 5x7", folder too small. Decided to water spritz both sides of card front, then multiple emboss with my fav Embossalicious Swirls folder! Wow, what a great result. No evidence of previous embossing.
Here’s finished card. Gold is CCD extended die cut, bought set while ago, very versatile. Joy to world stamp die set by Poppy Stamps. Greeting says "Tidings of Comfort and JOY" to complement the wise men image.
A "Mo Manning Digital Pencil" mermaid digi, called "Naunet. Inverted image in Picasa (as Cntrl + Shift +H keystrokes inverts an image or photo). Coloured them with glimmery gelly roll pens, used 3 weeks ago. Wanted glimmer on image so perfect solution. Fussy cut 2 images to make it strong, put a silver embroidery thread between middle of joined images, as planned to suspend it in shaker card (see Jennifer McGuire video here). Have shaker sequins, etc. on left in bowl. Had printed an background underwater sea digi via Google. Edited it on phone, as couldn’t on computer.
In the midst of life storms, our Heavenly Father longs to help comfort, just as we love to comfort help our children - so He longs that we might turn to Him for peace, help in the midst of storm.
