A Quiet Place and A Desk

What a beautiful day here in southern Arizona!  Sun is shining, temperature is supposed to get to the high 70's F.  And it's the day when you get to see my desk and the desks of many other crafters (if you so desire).  This is all brought together by our head desker, Julia, at the Stamping Ground.  If you're new to this please click on the WOYWW logo in the sidebar when you're done reading my post to learn more.  And please click through to the Stamping Ground to get the links to up to 100 crafters who take part is this fun blog tour.

Here I just finished cutting out a couple banners and the matching stamps are sitting to the left with a little stamp on the acrylic block to the right of the ink pad.  The negative of the banners is at the top of my Scor-Pal.  I seen a cut card in our Fun Stampers Journey artwork page on FB and I wanted to try it.  Some days I have such brain burps getting ideas....

I was searching for a particular stamp set when I seen this on on my shelf.  I haven't used it in ages and decided to use it instead.  (And now I can't remember what I was looking for.)

I purchased it from The Angel Company years ago and the set is called Sit Quietly.  There are 9 stamps in the set and I'll use one of the text ones for the inside when I get that far.  I added the hot pink twine from The Twinery and a matching pillow along with the black rhinestones.  Doesn't this look inviting?

I used my Stardust Clear Gel pen on the lines of the pillow but I just couldn't get a good picture of the shimmer. I think you can get a hint of it in the lower right corner but you may need to click on the photo and enlarge it.

Now that you have reached the end of my post please click through to the Stamping Ground!  I get inspired and learn some organizational ideas, along with making friends all over the globe!  Enjoy!

For those of you who were praying for my 2nd mammogram and ultrasound last week.... I still haven't heard the results from my doctor but the 2 technicians were positive I have a benign cyst.  Why can't doctors be more speedy?  Anyway, I appreciate the prayers!

That is a very pretty card. I know what you mean about photos not showing how shimmery and shiny things are...maybe we should invent an ap for that and get rich! Happy WOYWW :) Shel#71

Warm sun - temperature of 70 degrees! Sigh. Here in WI I just finished cleaning the snow off of my car and we have sun but it is reflected off the ice! Sigh. :<) Wishing you a happy day today!

(It's quite warm here, for Missouri, so no complaints in that department!)

That is such a PRETTY stamp, and you've used it to its full advantage--the serene grey, it really is a lovely card.

Thank you for the visit--I'm particularly fond of how that leaf came out, and am trying to figure a way to use it again in the Valentine prints!

I so love this card. I hope you get good news soon. The only thing I can say is that bad news usually comes quicker, I don't understand why. Thanks for the visit and happy crafting, Angela x 28

Ah Carol...
No news is good news have few of those benign cysts too but not in breast. Usually only remove if a problem. Had 8cm one on liver removed as it was big.

Pray yours behaves.

Love two cards on post two above...
And well done on teaching two brand new crafters in post above.
Praying all is well,
Shaz in Oz.x #3ps thanks for popping over I really appreciate it.

Seems that being #1 this week would get me here earlier, but sadly, I'm running far behind. Glad to read your tests were benign, at least it's hopeful.

I'm not much of a stamper, OR a card maker, but I really love what you did and that card is fabulous.

Happy very belated WOYWW and thanks for the earlier visit.
