WOYWW 579: Two More Weeks

Well my mojo has come back with a vengeance.  In comparison to the previous week, two tags in four days, I have made four samples, two tags, three prom invites for a private event and seven cards.  Of course I can't show you many of the pieces as they are for work colleagues.
In my desk photo I was working on the second of four cards from Maria Moorhouse's third virtual stamp class.  I thought I'd better get on with it as I've just paid for the fourth one lol.
The class was based round working with mica powders and palettes, although each project could be done with both.  I made two versions of the last card and thoroughly enjoyed myself.



I am joining in as usual with the long running blog hop hosted by Julia at the Stamping Ground: WOYWW.  Please visit if you like looking round people's desks and crafty spaces.  I'll be round to visit everyone and should manage by the weekend as I am in school for the rest of this week.  A shout out to the majority of Y7 and Y8 who aren't in school at the moment.  Last, but not least, a big thank you to LLJ who sent me happy mail last week which was very much appreciated.  Stay safe and Happy WOYWW fellow deskers.

Morning Sarah. Goodness - you really are motoring now! Must be the effect of being back in school!! Those cards are great - I especially love the ammonite one. It's gorgeous. Well done you!
Take care. Stay safe. God bless.

Lovely cards on show from our no 1 spot crafter. Love the ammonite and the kind of purply one which is intriguing.
Now why are we not seeing your happy mail - perhaps you will show us next week along with the various teasers you posted. I would love to know about the private prom invites. Am I just plain nosey?
Hugs, Neet 11 xx

Those really are all beautiful Sarah, so glad you managed to find time to get on with the virtual class, I bet it's given you many ideas for future makes.
Thanks for sharing these lovelies.. Happy WoywW Tracey #12 x

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh well done, your spike in mojo has been very productive and more to the point, looking fab! Love me a bit of mica powder, so versatile aren’t they. Some fab images there too, like the leaf/lantern one on the first card - who is that by?

Diana Taylor said...

Wow your cards are fabulous - you really have been busy - so glad the mojo's back. I love the purple shiny motif, it really is spectacular and the shading on the ammonite is just gorgeous.
Have a great week,

Shoshi said...

Sorry Sarah - got my wires crossed and thought I was on Julia's website for a moment! My mind is already on other things this a.m. Anyway, I love all the cards you made, and the gold flourish one at the beginning is my favourite. Thanks for visiting - Ruby's expression is a picture, isn't it! Off to the kitchen now to launch into my day.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #9

Some lovely makes there, Sarah. These virtual classes that are being run at the moment are great aren't they. I hope they are one thing that keeps going after lockdown. You can do ones that would normally be too far to travel too.
Hope school is going ok. September will be interesting with everyone in won't it? We are a primary school at the top of a hill and one of our guidelines is that all the windows will have to be kept open and we will need to dress appropriately, that'll be about 5 layers then in winter lol!!
Have a good week

Good to know your mojo is found! I was more productive when I was working, but wouldn’t trade retirement in for anything..
Do love your cards! What brand is the bunch of wild flowers stamp, please? It is so pretty. And I’m on a wildflower kick now...

Stay safe and well!

Happy Wednesday!
