Well, a desky share, two actually - many cards of varied techniques, I’ve been busy. To see other desks, please do pop over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and be surprised at how much you can learn .. all over the world!
The first desk is for a three year old.. had used this “Cheeky Monkey” stamp by Kraftin' Kimmie ten years ago here, but thought this card was passé now, so hunted for another idea and came up with this.
Second desk is my batch bake - I’m attacking my next lot of Christmas cards!
The Penny Black “Christmas in July” release in the three release videos I watched had not one real Christmas card on it - Jesus banned, it seems, from His own celebration! my heart is so sad, our world is so far from God.
I left comments on the Penny black Release videos as were “holiday cards” not “Christmas cards”.
Here’s the completed set.
I made two more lady birthday cards, another mauve shade one, for a dear friend, with a special verse, her favourite sweetpea.Digi are from web, verse is from Word Art Wednesday where they have new ones free each fortnight. Labels 28 SB are dies, bottom more lacy version of SB 28 are a gift years ago from Magpie, or Glenda on WOYWW.
Okay that’s it for this week! Busy in our garden at the moment, as it’s roses feed, mulch and sort out time, plus other like citrus and natives.Have ordered three new roses from S.A, which is always exciting. Like to have about three dozen bushes, and lost a few in our wet weather. It’s being prettied up with some nice edging too, the beds with none at the moment, and a few stepping pavers, as changing configurations a bit. My brother in law is a great help there.
Here’s some other Oz photos, my walks are mostly at the end of the day as you see!
Just to remind you spring is near, here - some very pretty yellow wattle. Wattle day is August 1st.
Thanks so much for popping over - I really appreciate it so much! I will visit as many as I can, but iPad now blocks all bloggers except those with pop up windows comment boxes.
May God bless you and all whom you love,
Shaz in Oz.x
