Sorry folks. Things have very busy, am slower so things take longer - you know the story! 😄 Been making lots of cards, but not sharing.. here's a quick post for Desky share for WOYWW - What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday, over HERE 😁 at Julia's, the first one for 2022!
Today sharing my desk from few days ago. Yes, you can see new calligraphy textas, permanent, yay! and paint pens, as I needed to go to Officeworks - dangerous!
I've been asked to teach some younger family the calligraphy course I've not done for years! So it is going to be most interesting as some is planned to be on Zoom! I have done the intro and lesson 1, while Brisbane family are here over Christmas/ New year.
Next are some cards done not shared.
These are a set of easy and light cards, for overseas mailing. I made quite a few of these using a Christmas topper, a pass it on card. The golden rectangle frame is an unused, NBUS Bo Bunny set from memory. Had for years, waiting for the right card!
Then are some of the alcohol an acetate cards, these are the two Christmas designs, the dies are old CCD, the acetate alcohol ink technique was shared back here. The verses are Digi I’ve made myself, and used SB older dies fir those. I’ve a lot of discontinued items, crafting for decades.
The last card is for challenge at Beccy’s place.. see here!
Special birthday was due quite a while back now, so using also a new to me Beccy’s Digi, it was bought on a flashback sale, I think. Miss 10 loves her ballet, and pink, so the idea was to make this cute image into a spinner card.However, I was really unwell at time (tooth infection), so did best I could. Created image too large, tricky with the mice to spin around with Ellie.
Realised too late to manage to resize, reprint, recut out two shapes in my unwell state.
It morphed into this simpler design. Still loved it but was disappointed, it would’ve made a great spinner card. Greetings are on computer.
Now to Aussie shots, it is summer here and some lovely skies these were taken by family member up at my sisters, you can see the contrasts.
My flowers are magnificent and this is one of multitude of rose bunches this season, the rains and extra TLC have contributed to them.
Thanks so much for popping over especially if you have time to say HI. I will do my best to return your kind encouragement.
May God bless you and all whom you love, in 2022. Especially praying for blessings abounding in health dept. - for us all!

Thought for the Day:
Today this verse popped into my mind, as I opened my mail with a loving missive from a friend.
so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend."
I love the book of Proverbs, next to Psalms in OT.
There are 31 chapters, so I used to read one chapter, the first on first of month, etc (x 12 in a year), for about 20 years. So a lot of times!
Read a Proverb a day, you get to know them well!
I love this verse.
It talks of how we all influence … or rub off on one another - either for good or not! To my mind this is the same for all in blogland and my wonderful friends here.
This year my aim is to blog more, God willing!
Time will tell.
