What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday – #154

Auguri a tutte le mamme!  (Happy Mother’s Day to all moms!) I had a wonderful Mother’s day weekend this past week. The weather actually cooperated and we were able to spend much of the weekend outside.  Leao must have talked with the boys because they took me to breakfast for Mom’s day and they were so good the whole time I kept wondering where my kids were.  I hope you all had a great week and weekend.
I can not believe it is Wednesday again. Time flies way too fast.   Let’s guess what my weather is like yet again?  Yup, rain, rain, gloom….Grrrr….
I want to say thanks to everyone who posted last week. I had so much fun last week peeking at as many desks as I could.  I was so inspired by Michelle Webbs art journals that I am thinking about creating my own. I look forward to playing some more today and filling myself with more inspiration.

Well last week, I told you my Sister came to visit last week to help me with the boys while Leao was away. I had such a nice time while she was here.  The kids had a blast and I had the help and the laughter I desperately needed.  (Carol Norbey from Arizona – I am glad to report, I did not need to use the peepad but laughed so hard when I read your post.). My sister left on Friday and I stood at the door like a little baby and sadly watched her drive off. She is such an amazing woman.

By the way the ‘m’ on my laptop is refusing to cooperate (possibly due to cookie crumbs) so if I misspell a word and it doesn’t make any sense then just add an ‘m’ to it!

Well today I am working on more cards. This one I took pictures in process for added interest.

Thank you card

All the elements of the card.

I need more thank you cards for my shop so I thought there is no time like the present.  I snatched up my new Zinnia stamps, copics, twine and went to town.  I love Zinnias in my garden so I knew I had to have this stamp. It’s fun to color too.

Added some dimension

I have always loved twine on other people’s cards and I just bought a whole bunch to play with.  I love the colors and texture it adds to the cards. I can’t wait to try it again. I am probably the last crafter to use it but I am definately liking it.

Thank you card

Adding more dimension with the doily


I sprayed the doily and loved the color and look of it so much that I had to find a way to add it to the card.

Thank you card

The completed card

Well I am loving playing with the spray and twine so I think I will play some more.

Well I better get going so that I can start spanning the globe looking at other desks. If you haven’t learned about this amazing creative journey you can take every Wednesday, then head on over to Julia’s Stamping Ground and you will find desks from all around the world for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Have a blessed day!
