WOYWW #286

Wow…it’s another WOYWW…time is flyin’ by!  To see what it’s all about, stop off atJulia’s Stamping Ground,  and then join in the fun.

OK, even I’m a bit shocked by the look of my desk...didn't think it was that bad when I left it Sunday night.  What you see are my fav Distress Markers (hope the caps are on tight!)  which I was using to watercolor the dragonfly, from Impression Obsession…which you can see on the acrylic block to the front right…

The Lady Slipper and Lupine are left-overs from some note cards I was commissioned to make with an “Adirondacky” feel, as it’s a gift for her mother who lives on Lake George.  I can’t remember the company, but I bought them on one of our Maine trips, and I think they are now out of business.  The distressing tool was used on the lupine card, the lattice (die back a bit) where used on the lady slipper.  Ink pads scattered all over the place…some brown velvet ribbon…being horded….almost broke down to use it! LOL!  Still might as it matches the cat tails….

With luck I’ll have some serious time from Thurs. evening on to finish this job and my own holiday cards, if I’m not in a turkey coma!  So Happy Thanksgiving everyone! For those in the North East, I hope the storm coming in today won’t ruin everyone’s plans! ( love adding plowing the driveway to the list with baking pumpkin pies!)
Oh, as typing this , it has just arrived in Albany NY...and it is coming down fast!!  Take care everyone!


  1. Love that lupin card. It's so elegant and I love the muted colours. Hope you enjoy thanksgiving tomorrow, despite the snow falling...hope it doesn't get too deep!

  6. Beautiful card there and Love that stamp. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Save me some of that pumpkin pie or make me one when I am next over please!! Or even better...I can be at yours for Thanksgiving!! LOL!

  7. That purple card is beautiful.
    Mooching around your blog I found that moon phase thing. Do your animals go crazy at full moon? I was a nurse and I dreaded doing night shift when it was full moon. My elderly patients would be extra confused.
    I have now managed to get this moon thing on my blog too!
    Thanks for letting me look over your shoulder,
    Sorry I'm a bit late but I always take my time and I love to look and read, click on links etc and that sometimes takes me all week!
    Have a good one,

  8. Hi Kim,

    We need some of that snowfall here in New Mexico! The day here today was just beautiful; no jacket required.

    You'll have to give us a close up of the dragonfly. The lupine is beautiful so I can just imagine the wonderful job you did on the dragonfly.

    I'm done with my Thanksgiving meal and it was either visiting desks or taking a nap! tee hee Jeopardy just started and Los Alamos is a category - hope I get them right!

    Thank you for visiting me already! Happy belated WOYWW

  10. Well I hope you're warm and safe, the thought of snow right now just fills me with despair! Love that you've made time away from Christmas crafting to make these cards..and I'm with you on the brown ribbon -totally understand!!
