WOYWW 197 (Gelatos, and Lots of Cards)

Hi, guys! Hope all is well on your end. Today is Wednesday, so that means I will be sharing what is on my workdesk.  Thank you to Julia of http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ for this fun weekly challenge.  I know that I am having a blast sharing what I am working on and LOVE seeing what others are creating, too.

Today, my desk looks VERY full of stamping goodness.  I decided to take out my gelatos and watercolor some cards after seeing Jennifer McGuire use the same technique with pencils.  I am happy with the way they turned out. (Yes, I have a bit of a Diet Pepsi addiction!)






There are a slew of cards on the desk as I promised my brother I would make a couple sets for him to auction off for a charity at his office.  I also am making a set for a blogger who was the winner of my first-ever giveaway (for my 1st blog anniversary!). 

When I took this picture, my fingers were EXTREMELY inky.  But, so very happy!

Looking forward to visiting with some of you today, and highly recommend you join in the fun if you haven't tried this yet.  You will be inspired!

Until next time!

your cards are looking great and if your fingers were inky then you were having a good time. A lovely idea to make cards for your brother to auction

Hi Winnie, your cards are lovely and those gelato colours are wonderful. Thanks for your visit. The whole renovation includes a new extension at the back of the house and installing a whole bathroom in the front part of the garage. The whole process will take 6 weeks but that is for both, so I guess yours would take a lot less time if it is replacing what you currently have - maybe a week or so?

Happy WOYWW, Anne x #23

Inky is good - happy is great! Gelatos didn't seem to 'take' here, and I wonder why - in your hands they are marvellous. Admiring your generosity too - a great gift of time and use-able resources.

Joynana said...

I have that set of gelatos and the metallic ones and have never opened the boxes. I have got to use them. I wish my hands were inky. It means you have had time to play. #70
