WOYWW 355, A few cards and better health !

Hello my dear friends!

How are you today? I hope you are well and happy! I am finally over the cold but still fighting the cough! It is weird - I might not cough for a whole day but then I burst into this killer cough that leaves me well exhausted!Oh well what can you do?
Yesterdays horrible things going on in Belgium have made me really sad! Is this really what we will have to face every few months?? Is this the way of our life now? Will we ever have peaceful life and our Christian culture back? Sometimes I think that is gone forever! I can't imagine how our children and grand children and all the generations after will live! Lets hope there will be some change. Something that will eradicate this evil!
Anyway back to normal life - I have not done much but I have made a few last cards for Easter which I will show but first here is my desk!

This is my desk from another angle....in the front here you can see a little pile of Clearly besotted and Artistic Stamper stamps which I have recently used - washi tapes little jars with various crafty stuff a mug with water for water coloring  and lots of pens, markers,brushes, double sided tapes, scissors and my mobile....that is my not very interesting desk for today....
And here are my cards....This one is just a distress ink background and some reverse confetti dies - the sentiment is from the Slovene company that makes dies and stamps NAJLEPŠI PAR!

This next one is made with brushos...I love the richness of them and how they burst out...really fascinating...The dies I used are Memory box and Lil' inker.....

And then this last one I have stamped this Clearly Besotted stamp in black for the background and then I colored the stamp image as my focal point! I also used the egg die and sentiment from Lil' Inker...

So there 3 different cards with 3 different techniques! I never make two cards exactly the same! 
So there my dear friends! That is my contribution to the Stamping Ground WOYWW!
Have a lovely Easter 
Love and hugs to all of you!

WOYWW 354, A cold, Easter cards and a birthday card!

My dear friends!

How are you? I hope you are all ok, we all heard about Julia - our Queen and we wish her all well. May she soon have the operation and a quick and good recovery! Julia I am thinking of you!
I myself must apologise to everybody who has commented on my blog last week - I have been fighting a really bad cold which I just can't shake off! I thought this time I will take a photo of my awful self!

Of course there isn't much to show this week - my desk is more or less a dumping place for everything!
Here are a few photos....



Luckily I have a few Easter cards I made last week that I haven't shown yet so here is some for you...



I really like this one - just a little bit of water coloring and a nice die cut egg from Memory Box...a layered a few die cuts so it looks thicker...

Here is a spring -ish one....


and another one....

 
 And here is a birthday card I made for my DBFs granddaughter.....

That's all folks for today - I will be going back to bed now and try to get rid of this awful cold and hopefully next week get back to you on a happier note! I will also get back to all of you that have commented as soon as I feel up to it!
Love and hugs to everybody! Lets share a lot of kindness! I heard this week on the radio someone said KINDNESS TO EACH OTHER MAKES US HUMAN!
Have a lovely week!

WOYWW 353 A makeover, an Art book, Easter cards and everything distress!

My dear friends! As you can see my blog has a makeover! I am back after more then 2 months. I don't want to apologise much it was just me - I think I was just in a bit of a crisis - even though moving over here seemed to have been easy it wasn't and sometimes it does bring me down being away from family and friends! As I don't know any people here where I live and being used to always having lots of company it sometimes feels a bit lonely! Also my health problems don't make me happy! Anyway I won't go on about it I will just show you some of the stuff I have been doing in the last 2 months! After we came back from Slovenia I started working on an art book which I was going to send to Donna - a WOYWWer from previous times who has now moved to France - it took me so long to make it but it is now finally in France! Here are a few pages...
I also made a little bag or should I say pouch for the book - it was a quilted one which I am very proud of!
I have made loads of Easter cards - I will show a few today and the rest in my next posts - ha, ha I am hoping to return to my regular posting! Anyway here are a few Easter cards...
And last but not least - on Saturday I went to a lovely workshop Jennie from the Artistic Stamper held for us! It was all about DISTRESS! We used every distress product there is on the market - ink pads, distress markers, stains, sprays,paints and we even tried the new distress crayons! We made a little reference book of all the techniques and here is what I made! Thank you Jennie for the lovely time! So here is our teacher...
the table was full of distress products....
and here is what I made....
Oh dear I forgot to show my desk....I am sure there isn't a messier desk around....
So that's me done...have a lovely week and don't forget to nose around and hook up to our HQ - the Stamping Ground! Love and hugs to all of you CARDARIAN
