WOYWW - 170

Not much going on today, but this is what I finished last night....
and then I cleaned, this is what my desk looked like this morning.....
Friday, Virginia and I head to Sacramento to pick up Patty (my ex-daughter-in-law), and good friend.  We're then heading to San Francisco....  I love playing along with Julia and the other "desketts"  it's always fun to let my fingers do the walking around the globe to see what everyone is up to....check out Julia's fun blog here:  WOYWW-170

So, about my card.  Years ago, a man named Richard Bach wrote books that influenced me at a time that my life was not settled.  His books brought calmness to my life and loved every word he wrote.  For those who don't know him, he authored:  "Jonathan Livingston Seagull",  "The Reluctant Messiah", and "There's No Such Place As Far Away".  Over the weekend, Richard was in a small plane crash and is in hospital in Seattle.  I made this card to let him know I'm thinking of him and wishing him well. 

Off to continue cleaning house.  It's great when company's a reason to chase the dust bunnies down!  Not as much fun as playing with paper....but.....necessary!

  4. This is such a prtetty card Mary. I love the backing paper. Hugs Mrs A.

  5. Last lost item was my car keys. Moved Girlfriend Monday to water, and often start hoses, etc. at the same time and put them down momentarily outside. Panic in year zero. however, this time I'd set them on the little hassock while I went through my purse looking for the little flashlight that had unscrewed and come off of them. They go on a specific hook, NO place else. Whew! Another tragedy averted.

  6. Love your card! Very elegant! And your desk looks very inviting!
    Happy WOYWW!

  8. Hi Mary, your desk is looking all ready for the next crafting session.

    Isn't it good when you find a writer whose writing reaches out and touches you just at the right time. I've had the same experience, just a different author. I'm sure Richard Bach will appreciate that gorgeous card ... I hope he is making a good recovery.

    Wishing you a lovely weekend. Elizabeth x #90
