An Iris, A Desk

It's WEDNESDAY!!  Desker Day!  Hump Day!  But a great day to tour desks all over the world!!  Yep, today is "What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday".   You have the unique opportunity to view desks and fabulous projects from your computer!  This is all brought together by Julia at the Stamping Ground.  And if this is new to you please click on the WOYWW logo in my sidebar or her "What is WOYWW" page tab at the top of the Stamping Ground blog.  But now for my desk...

I have been working on my FSJ "Kit of the Month".  I have 2 of the 4 cards complete, to the left between the red Cricut and my paper trimmer.  Mostly center is the stamp set that came with the kit and some blue painters tape (from a project last week and it needs to be put away).  Kinda center to right is the instruction sheet and the card elements.   Far right are some bottles of sequins and my scissors. 

I actually made a card for a dear friend using the single Iris stamp from the KOTM stamp set "Full Bloom".  She had a mild stroke last week and has been praying for me this past year with the death of my mom and the remarriage of my dad.  Now it's my turn.  I got the text a bit too much to the right or maybe I should have moved the flowers more to the center (I tried that but it looked awkward).  Oh well.  I know she'll love the card. I used my scallop oval dies from Spellbinders, too.

I colored the flowers with Copic markers and used Gold Wink of Stella to color the stamens.  The background stamp is a large FSJ script background stamp.

Ok, I'm done here.  But you really need to head over to the Stamping Ground and continue on the tour of desks and the great projects.  I'll be visiting all day.  Many join in later in the day and I want to check their desks, too!

The card and flowers you created are beautiful. I have never used copics, but you seem to know exactly how to use them. The yellow flower is awesome, too.

Thanks for the earlier visit. Happy WOYWW from #9.

That flower is beautiful, Carol - well done. The card looks great, and has reminded me I have a similar sized stamp of a flower... must dig it out and see what I can do. When nothing else is looming, you understand, and I have absolutely nothing else to do or think about....???!!
Thanks for your visit and your kind comments. We have really appreciated folk saying they pray for us. Such a help and encouragement! Through the mill? Yes, I suppose we have, rather - but then to quote the old hymn "God did not promise skies ever blue" - but He does indeed promise He will never leave us nor forsake us - so we know He is there in it with us. What a relief and a help.
Take care. God bless.
