woyww - card making

A bird's eye view of the desk  showing some left over cardstock, watercolour paper, ink pad and new dies.  Had planned to use the dies for cards but started painting.  Then I used the little paintings to make cards.
My favourite "magnolia for you" Altenew stamp embossed and painted with glimmermists.

Trying out a painted wreath for a congrats card and finally ...
Have a great woyww.


  1. Ooh I do love that Magnolia stamp - how gorgeous it looks with that delicate colouring against the aqua - beautiful. I love the Congrats and the daisy cards too - the wreath would look gorgeous in silver and red for Christmas, although why I'm thinking Christmas this early I don't know! Thanks so much for stopping by earlier, I hope you have a great week,

  2. The little paintings will make great cards. Love the magnolia.
    I wish my space was as organised (and disciplined) as yours. Maybe I need one of those larger green mats. Have a great week.

  21. Well I am successfully either VERY late for WOYWW last week or nice and early for this week,Sandra, yes still doing catch up... And just while I think of it...d not be too excited by the card from me, it was not how I wanted it .. After did it thought should have done it another way, however do hope you like it anyway. Love yours. And also the ones that you've created with brush instead of dies.. Am easily distracted too from my original plans!,
    Happy WOYWW Shaz in Ozx
