Good morning everyone and welcome!  Come on in and lets have a cup of coffee and sit a spell!  Wednesday has once again rolled around and it is time to share my work desk over at Stampin Ground. Each Wednesday just take a photo of your space and link it over at Julia's blog and then you can visit many other crafters from all over the world.  

I took a moment and made a couple Christmas cards.  I find if I do a couple each month when late November rolls around I'm not in a panic wondering where I will find the time to finish.  So little by little I'm getting it done.  

If you have a bit of time head over to Stamping Ground and have a look around.  This might be something you want to participate in.  Everyone have a great rest of the week!

My Poppy....

Good morning everyone and welcome!  I'm here this morning to share a card I made to enter in the Can You Handle the Pressure Challenge. I love playing in this challenge.  I get to use some items in my craft room that have been needing a bit of love.  This pretty Poppy image is from Heartfelt Creations and I used Inktense watercolor pencils to color them.  I hope you enjoy.  Then, of course I used an embossing folder from long ago and I'm sorry but I do not remember the name.  

I hope you enjoy my card...I had so much fun making it.  It is so much fun to make something using some of the products I have stuck back in my closet.

WOYWW 742....

Good morning everyone and welcome to my blog.  Wednesday has once again rolled around and it is time to share a look at my work space. Miss Julia at Stamping Ground is the owner of this little get together and she allows us to use her space each and every week!  How generous is that? I have been pulling out stamps and dies from all the years of being with Heartfelt Creations and putting them where I can see what I have to play with.  They are in numerical order and the flower shaping moulds are also there so I can find what I'm looking for. This is only a portion of my products as the two towers sitting on my desk are also filled with Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies.  They are a very generous company and each and every month they sent me a big box filled with the complete release for that month!  I have enough product to last me the rest of my life.  

Also there are two crates of some of my decorative papers from Heartfelt Creations too.  Now that they have released the design team I have lots of time to play and do some of the things I have been wanting to do.  Below is one of the four boxes I made for the ladies in the group that meets at my sister's house once a month for lunch.  Now and then I go along and I like to make something with flowers for all four of them.

Like I said I made four boxes alike but with different papers.  I made quite a few sunflowers and of course each box had a dragonfly on it.  All Heartfelt Creations products.   I hope you enjoy!

A New Christmas Card.......

Here I am again with a new Christmas card for you.  This time the pretty papers and dies do all the heavy lifting.  Quick and easy and flat so it's easy to mail.  It is 5" X 7" and I think it's a stunner!  I'm entering this one in the Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge. This is such a fun challenge and so easy to participate in so if you  have some time go on over and check it out.  It will help you to get a jump on your holiday cards!

More Sunflowers.....

Good Monday morning everyone and welcome.  Today I'm sharing more sunflowers and a box I made.  I got the instructions for the core box from Liz Gaze, one of the ladies making videos for Heartfelt Creations but I chose the paper, flowers and that sweet little dragonfly.  I am entering this box on the Double D Challenge (Sunflowers).  I have always loved sunflowers and when I make them I make a bunch, so you may be seeing more in the coming days.  

I hope  you enjoy this box as I really enjoyed making it.  I actually made four of these boxes over a couple of weeks so I used many sunflowers in the process.  If you have time and would like to play along, hop over to the challenge and have a look around.  It's lots of fun!

I love when the sunflowers bloom and I love making them as well!  So here is a sunflower card made using lots of stamps, dies, papers, molds, inks etc.  This one has been received so I can post, as it is no longer a surprise!  I'm also playing along in the Double D Challenge which is "Sunflowers".  This is the first time I have entered this challenge ... I have been entering a few here and there.  It's nice to be on my own and making things that I love making.  I made a bunch of sunflowers lately so there is more to come in the next few days.  


I'm not going to list all the products as they are all Heartfelt Creations. (No surprise there)  Well that does it for me this morning.  Short and Sweet and off to the races.

WOYWW #741....

Good morning everyone and welcome.  Wednesday has once again rolled around and I'm here to share a quick look at my desk .  Julia over at Stamping Ground is the hostess for this little get together  so go check it out and if you have time play along with us.  

It is not a completely tidy desk but not too bad as I have a couple of projects going at once.  This is a sweet little box using Heartfelt Creations papers and dies and there are pre-made flowers and leaves in the clear plastic box.  I will pick out some that match these pretty papers and finish it off.  Nice size to hold a small gift or some candy to give to a neighbor.

I just went ahead and finished the box decorations and took the photo so I could share this morning.  I find I'm quite pleased with the outcome! 

I did a quick card for a challenge and it will be going in the mail tomorrow for a family member.  It is showing in the post below this one if you want to check it out.  

That's it for me this morning.  Thank you all for welcoming me back in.  What a lovely group of ladies!

A Card to Say Hello.....

Good morning everyone and welcome!  I'm here this morning to share a card I made for the Can You Handle the Pressure Challenge.   I have really been enjoying playing along in this challenge because it is so easy and I love using some of my embossing folders.  This morning's card uses the Spellbinders Floral embossing folder and the challenge has a twist of stripes.  So I did a purple strip down the middle of my card.  

It is a quick and easy card and you can mail with one postage stamp!  This one will be going in the mail tomorrow morning to a family member!  I hope you enjoy this one as I really enjoyed making it!

WOYWW 740....

Happy Wednesday everyone.  I'm sitting here this morning not knowing what to do with myself.  For many years every Wednesday was spent with Heartfelt Creations and now that the design team has been released I find I just sit here and stare at my computer screen.  I have a cyber friend Little Treasures by Sylvia who posts here a lot and I remembered I used to do this as well so here goes!   You just take a photo of your work space and link to this blog and you are off to the races.  

I'm going to have to work up the courage to show you my whole space as it has been a few years since I did this! Lots of ink pads out for coloring sunflowers that are cut out and waiting in the blue tray to the left and the blue tray in front has lots of watercolored images for Christmas cards! Miss Julia at Stamping Ground is the hostess of this little get together and it's a great bunch of like minded crafters coming together each and every Wednesday to visit.  All are welcome so you might also like to visit!

Now I'm off to visit some of the blogs listed as I remember many of the names from long ago.  Hello again ladies!
