WOYWW #337

Another week has flown by! Time to see what everyone has been working on! If you don't know what WOYWW is, just click on the paisley square on my sidebar!

Here is my desk this morning:
I was making Christmas cards yesterday (finally!) and needed to weigh one down to dry, which is the stack of stamps and gesso you see!

Here is the card:

You can't see it in the photo, but the white background part of this photo is embossed Swiss Dots, so it needed the night of drying for the image to stick to all the tiny dots!

Here are my cards so far. Sometimes I choose one to mass produce, so I don't have to make a different card for every person. Which one would you choose? (click on the photo to enlarge)

Here is my finished journal page for this week, such a sad ending to the week.

I have detailed the Paris attack under the flap. In the circles I have put a Dalai Lama quote:"Don't pray for the people of Paris, pray for peace in the world" In other words, focus our energy on the positive (peace) and not on the negative (ISIS). But our hearts still go out to the people of Paris who had to suffer through this terrible attack. Pray for Peace.

Here is my new journal page, ready for writing on.

I love this little detail stamp!

I find it very interesting how when I make these journal pages at least a week ahead of time, they seem to be just the page I need on that particular week, For example, when I made the flap on my last journal page I had no idea what I was going to put there. But then Paris happened, and that was the obvious place to journal that horrible night.  

Thanks for looking, I appreciate any and all comments! Don't forget to vote for you favorite card! I will need to choose one to mass produce! Thank you!

Lovely cards, and your journal pages are wonderful.Love the colours. I tend to batch make Christmas cards, as for acquaintances/work colleagues etc, I need at least a hundred, then I do a separate special design for family and close friends.Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #9 xxx

Oh, the cards are all so lovely and I can't pick just one. I like two the most. I like the top left one with the angel and I like the Manger scene as well. They are both gorgeous and something that would bring joy to anyone receiving them.

Your journal pages are lovely too. I love the prepared one. It makes me want to get on the ball a little more about using mine more often. Thanks for the inspiration!

I like the top angel because of the individual background but do whichever you would enjoy doing a lot of - they are all lovely. Thanks for popping by earlier - as you saw I will be doing an angel. Jackie #21

Hi Linda! If I had to choose one card, it would be the log cabin with the embossed background - but all of them are wonderful! Lovely journal pages - and a sad reminder of what happened last Friday. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa #33

Your journal pages are lovely - and a tribute to Paris too.
Not a clue about the Christmas cards as I like them all - probably top centre and top right if I had to say but I really don's know which.
Hugs, Neet 24 xx

If I would choose a card it would be the angel one, in the upper left corner. I like your journal pages, especially the second one (for next week). Vicky(#20)
