What's On Your Workdesk Wdnesday #243

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

Hi Glenda. I am so envious - I love snow and all we seem to get where I live is the odd dusting that quickly turns to horrible grey slushy stuff. I know you are probably saying be careful what you wish for!!! On the upside great day to keep warm and desk hop! Love your card so far. It looks so feminine. Great idea to colour the flowersoft - didn't it get all over the ink pad though? WOYWW Hugs from Helen 74 x

Goodness, that sounds cold. Keep warm and toasty if you can. We haven't seen a flake of snow here in the UK this winter much to my daughter' disappointment.
What a great idea to colour your flower soft, I must try that, thanks for the tip.

Thanks for stopping by, We left the house for lunch out..29 here and so much sunshine. Seems like a breath of spring. Sounds like Atlanta got hit hard.
You amaze me with all your flowers. So many kinds and they are all lovely. I like the colors you are using on the card too. Enjoy your week and the snow.

Good morning, Glenda. That card is lovely - is the trellis a stamp or a stencil - it's gorgeous. I, too, like snow - not that we have had any yet this winter - rain, rain and more rain, has been our lot so far. Snow in Scotland in the Highlands - but not this far south.. boo hoo!
Have a great week.

You have the makings of a very pretty card. Hope the weather improves for you. I was in Tennessee in November and loved your beautiful state. We missed the really cold weather thank goodness.

Well, I'm not a part of the WOW group (yet) but I still had to comment! This looks like the starts of a card I'm really going to LOVE. Why you ask ... because it starts out with my favorite color ... purple! How can you go wrong! LOL!
Can't wait to see the finished product and your desk looks fine to me!! STAY WARM!

Well, I'm a day late. My Wednesday went by in a flash. Been watching the news about the weather conditions back there. Good weather for staying home. I would love some snow, but not if I have to drive to work in it. Your dogwood flowers look like they're going to be beautiful!
