WOYWW 437: Nearly Half Term!

Happy What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday; only a few more days until half term and I must admit that I'm ready for a break.  If you want to visit some more desks then head over to The Stamping Ground and chief desker Julia who hosts this weekly event.  Next week I'll be crafting on my own as Eva is off to visit family, so I made the most of her company yesterday.  I'll be heading off to work shortly as there is another parents' evening this evening.
 My side of the desk shows the start of a birthday card for my youngest son who turns 18 tomorrow (where did the time go).  I'll be sharing the finished card tomorrow if you want to see the finished result.
On the other side of the desk, Eva was busy die cutting some of her background pieces.  Short and sweet this week, just the way Julia likes it. Before I sign off, I just want to say how glad I am that Shaz is out of hospital and back home!

Art Journal Prompts 42: Leaves

Having left it until the last minute to work with last week's art journal prompt, I thought I'd get straight down to week 42: Leaves.  I decided to use a stencil and stamp from Claritystamp which came in the July 2017 New Design Stamp Club and Stencil Club packs.

Journal Page: Water, Orange, Purple, Blue?

The prompt for challenge 38 on Junk Journal Junkies and Mindful Art was Water using the colours orange, purple and blue.  I was a little flummoxed at first, then I found the quote and the rest came quickly.

Nellie and Elmer!

This card was made for a Facebook friend of mine who has such a positive outlook on life, considering that nearly a year ago she was struck down with Lymphedema in both legs.  She calls them Nellie and Elmer and has set up a craft challenge to commemorate the first anniversary of their appearance.  I am in awe of her positivity and it was a pleasure to make this!
