WOYWW #163 - Having Fun With Unity!

Good morning!!!  It's Wednesday and that is something to be happy about.  Not only is it mid-week which means Friday is growing closer, but that also means it is time for WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday)!

I have not done a WOYWW post in many, many weeks.  For those of you who do not know, we just made a major move.  From California to Florida!  With the exception of the time we moved to England when my hubby was in the AF, this is the biggest  move we have made.  I can now say we have literally moved from coast to coast!  Have to say I don't want to do that again, anytime soon.  Moving is such a pain in the caboose!

Recently I rewarded myself with some new stamps to ease the moving pains.  Hee hee :)  I actually sat down and played with them last night and made this card.



Both stamps are from a set called Insightful Meadows (Unity Stamp Company).  I am in love with this set!  Actually, the hubby actually likes them too!  Can you believe that?  They were sitting on the kitchen counter, he picked them up and proclaimed them to be "very pretty".  I told him I am going to get a stamp made that says "These stamps have been husband approved."!

You can't really see it in this picture, but the flowers are all sparkly.  I stamped them in black, then stamped over them again with some VersaMark ink and embossed them with some glitter embossing powder.  In person they *dazzle*!

OK, on to the desk...


Not too terribly much going on, since we just moved and I am still working on getting everything unpacked, sorted and put away.  The movers were not so great at keeping things together.  I swear, some of the boxes looked like they had taken my stuff off of the shelves, mixed it all around on the floor, THEN picked it back up and put it in boxes.  Stuff was THAT jumbled in the boxes.  Ugh.

Yoshi has already reclaimed his throne, back up on top of my lamp there and you can see some of the new stamps I ordered there.  I am looking forward to getting all of the organizing done and spending lots of quality time with my new craft room.  Loving it so far and will share more pictures next week!

Pop over to see Julia at Stamping-Ground and visit more craft spaces all over the world!

Thanks for stopping by,

Michelle

Hi Michelle - I too approve of your stamps and the fab card - Husband praise is high praise indeed! How great to move to Florida. I am in the UK. We love it there. I found a couple of great craft shops (but I can never find them the second time!) We are saving up to come visit again - how great to live there all the time. Good luck in your new home. Hope you get settled soon. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 69

What a lovely card and such a wonderful sentiment too! :-) Well done on your move..... over here in the tiny UK we forget how ENORMOUS the states is, so to go from coast to coast that's an incredible move!

Oh, dear. A move. Getting set-up in your new home will keep you busy for quite some time. Certainly you deserved some stamp treats. That card is very pretty; it has a diminsional appearance. Thank you for your nice comment on my Fairy pages. Charlotte #85.

Love the idea of a husband approved stamp! Great card and love the sentiment! My dad was in the Air Force-I know what a hassle that can be. :)

Thank you for coming by to visit me earlier! I've done my domestic duties and can now relax and go visiting.

Good luck with the rest of the unpacking and getting your new craft room set up just like you want. Probably the only "up" side of the massive move!

Your card is wonderful. I could see some of the dazzle! Great idea!
