Sunflowers Everywhere..........

Good morning everyone!  Friday has rolled around once again and I'm here to share another project with you before we jump into the weekend.  I'm making boxes for the nursing home and I am having so much fun just letting my creative side run wild!  In the coming days I will share some of them with you just for fun.  After all, this journey of mine has become about doing what I want when I want.  When I said I would make these boxes, I didn't realize I was going to have so much fun!


I just love these pretty sunflowers from Heartfelt Creations.  They are so much fun to color and shape and did you notice these cute little lady bugs?


Here is a close up of the top of the box and another cute little ladybug!  The center of the flowers is a combination of seed beads and glitter and Gala Glitz colored with Ink to make a wonderful medium for flower centers.


A good close up of the front of the box.  The pretty bows are seam binding colored with Orange Marmalade Distress Ink so they match the flowers.

I have to admit, I went a bit overboard with this one and almost didn't stop decorating it.  There comes a point when it's just over kill.  Hope I didn't get to that point with this one.

Well that's all for me this morning.  Hope you have a great day and that you enjoy your weekend!

WOYWW #300

Good morning everyone and welcome to What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday #300.  Now that has to be some kind of milestone, to have started a little blog hop that has blossomed into this little bit of wonderful for Wednesday mornings! I am so totally addicted that if I miss a Wednesday I feel like my whole week is messed up!  If you need a little more information about this world wide blog hop and if you need all the rules and regulations about it, just hop over to Julia's blog and she has everything listed there. And a big congratulations to Julia for creating this blog hop for all of us!


I took this photo late yesterday afternoon and it still looks the same this morning. I am making flowers again, something that I love doing.  The black kit holds some of my flower shaping tools and I'm afraid it is covering my cut out flower petals.  I need flowers to decorate these pretty boxes I'm making for my sister.  The nursing home needs boxes to hold goodies and I'm loving every minute of this. I just love a pretty box.  See the re-inkers sitting there?  The two new Ranger Distress colors are showing.  The Cracked Pistachio and the Abandoned Coral are my latest additions to my hoard.  I use distress inks to color a lot of the flowers I make so new colors just take my away with possibilities!

Well that does it for me this morning.  I'm off to Julia's blog and then on to visit as many of you as I can!

Another Birthday Card.......

Good morning everyone.  Hope you are ready to begin another week.  It is raining here; how is it the song goes.....Rainy days and Monday's always get me down?  I have been trying to make birthday cards ahead and I had to send 4 cards during the month of February so I'm still behind I'm afraid.

Here is my latest card.  It's a quick and easy card without a lot of bells and whistles.  It will be easy to mail and can work for male or female alike.


The pretty paper is from a Prima paper stack then I added lots of die cuts over the top and to finish it all off a pretty yellow butterfly and it's all ready to be out the door.  I love how simple this card is and there is not a flower in sight.  I know, I know....it's hard to believe....I can hardly believe it myself!

Well that is it for me this morning.  Hope you have a good day and that wherever you find yourself and whatever you wind up doing that you take a moment and "Breathe".

Botanical Rose meets Cheery Lynn Designs......

Good morning everyone.  I'm here this morning to share a quick card I made using a beloved Cheery Lynn Designs die called Sophia's Heart.  I have used this die several times and love it.  It makes such a lovely background for my flowers.


My card is 6" X 6" and the base card is watercolor paper for strength and stability.  It will hold up to most anything you put on the front of your card and not buckle.  I have handmade flowers using dies and stamps from Heartfelt Creations Botanical Rose Collection..  I love the little lacey edges of these flowers and think they make a gorgeous flower.  The pretty paper in the background is from the Prima Botanical Collection.  I have had this hoarded back for some time and decided today was a good day to use some.  The bow is colored seam binding all scrunched up and colored to match the flowers!  Also the little seed beads in the center of my flowers started out clear and were colored with the Blackberry Bliss ink to match the flowers.

I will be entering this into the Cheery Lynn Designs Design Team Call.  Wish me luck!

Supply List:
Cheery Lynn Designs Sophia's Heart Die

WOYWW #299

Good morning everyone and welcome to our weekly WOYWW get together!  If you would like to join us, head over to Julia's blog and she will have the information you need to get you started.  Every Wednesday I take a photo of my space and blog about it then link it to Julia's blog.  Once you do that then you can join in all the fun and visit everyone's desk and see what they have going on.

I missed last week because of a very nasty bug and this was going on outside my window.  I was too sick to enjoy but the ice on everything was so beautiful.  It was also dangerous.  Mother Nature can be treacherous at times.


Then yesterday we had another little bit of snow on top of what was left from this one.  We received another 3-4 inches before it moved on.  Bella and I went for a little walk in the snow and she loves it!  She is two and this is really the first snow she has gotten to experience.


Now back to business...here is my desk this morning.


As you can see it's quite a mess there this morning.  I have several ideas floating around in my head at this time and it's about to get really muddled!  I need to focus on one thing at a time and get it done!  This crazy bit of this and that and nothing concrete is making me a little crazy this morning.  Right now I would like to put something in this small frame and use in my living room.  There are actually two of these frames and I just need to settle for something.  The pretty flowers in the background were printed off the internet and I'm thinking "paper toile".  Then the card with the die cut lying on the top of it is going to wind up being a birthday card.....I think.  The pretty lace just needs to be put away and the same goes for all the inks and seed beads, etc.  Just a bit of a mess right now and it totally is what I'm feeling in my head right now!  When I get like this, it is better for me to pick one and go with it and shuffle the rest off to the side for another day.

Now I'm off to visit your blogs and say a quick hello.  Have a good day and stay warm wherever you are!
