Good morning everyone from a cold and snowy East Tennessee. It snowed all day yesterday and I have to admit it was beautiful to see. I love snow and this one is beautiful but the very cold temps coming along with the snow are difficult to deal with! It is 5 degrees at my house this morning and that can be tough. Some areas in the states below Tennessee are not equipped for this kind of weather and it can be very hard for them, so keep them in your prayers as they struggle through this cold.
I'm here this morning to share what my desk looks like as we speak! I'm working on a card and making dogwood flowers to go on it and I will share it with you a little later in the week. If you would like to join us on Wednesdays just head over to Julia's blog . She has all the details listed so you can learn how to participate. It's really easy and I get to visit so many desks all over the world and I love getting to see what everyone is doing. There are all kinds of crafts and crafters and we are all passionate about what we do. So come join us please!
I have out quite a bit of "stuff" on my desk and I am just now adding the elements to the card front. I also need to choose a sentiment and get that ready for the front as well. You can see the Flower Soft I colored with distress inks to achieve the color I wanted for the center of the dogwood petals. I have some yellow and ivory Flower Soft that takes the color well and makes gorgeous centers. Give it a try sometime. Also the green and tan tool you see on the left is a tool used to draw veins in leaves and petals to give them a more lifelike appearance..(Susan's Gardens).
Well fellow snoopers there you have it. I am off to visit as many of you as I can today as I sit looking out my window at the beautiful gift Mother Nature gave us yesterday. I'm not sure how many inches arrived here but we weren't expecting anything so this is a beautiful surprise
