Wonderful, Wonderful Wednesday (WOYWW #389)

Happy Wednesday everyone... today I can't wait to share my desk, more of my Christmas cards and a few photos of this wonderful corner of the world I live in for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday... (Go HERE to find out all about what it is and HERE to find out how to join in.)
This is the area I am sharing today.  I call it my "messy space" which means the space where I do all my messy,  inky, painty, mixed media stuff, but also it always seems to be a bit of a mess... Grin
And for the next few weeks I have converted my stamping table into my "card drying table" since every Christmas card is being made all glittery with Stickles.  Now, here is a sneak peak of some finished cards...
If you read last week's post you might remember that I shared that I make as many Christmas cards as I feel like making - and then I stop.
To date I have made 30 cards and I am still going strong (which means I am still having fun) so you can expect to see more card reveals next week.
And finally I will be doing an entire blog post about these cards (I made 10 of them), created using my Magenta dye ink powders (similar to Brushos)... and a stamping and heat embossing technique...
Totally worth an entire blog post don't you think?
And I got the idea when playing around with my powders produced this lovely card background.  Which I am hoarding until I find just the perfect card idea to use it on. 
And now for those photos: this is the river valley view from my backyard now that the leaves have fallen, the rain has stopped and the mist is rising.
We have been having an unusual amount of rain this week, but it stopped briefly yesterday and the sun came out and lit up the entire yard until it sparkled like it was covered in diamonds...
I grabbed my camera and just got carried away taking photos and trying to capture the light and the sparkle and the beauty...
and then I just had to see how close I could take a close up of the drips on the red rowan berries...

And finally some shots of our 50 year old willow tree which has finally turned yellow and decided to start dropping its leaves...
So that's it for me this week... thanks for popping in to visit and if you are new to this event you will want to pop on over to the Stamping Ground to visit a few other desks!

  1. wow, where to start! the outdoors, i think, photos that are right up my street (missing my almost weekly trips to Kew, Christmas card making has got in the way of that) - the raindrop shots are stunning.. love the cards too, though. Helen #3

  2. What lovely Nature shots.I want to learn to draw raindrops..on my list!!

  3. Great photos all around Lynne, love the cards esp the brushos ones, I'm loving mine and getting more fun and as they're so unpredictable. Love all your stickly cards too, great work there. I always like to have cards over rather than having to rush a few unexpected ones up. Going to do my card list this week. Gorgeous creation shots too, love rowan berries...
    Happy WOYWW! Thanks for sharing,

  6. What a wonderful post, Lynne. Amazing close ups of the rowan berries! Do you have a macro lens on your camera? That would be the only way I could get so close with my Sony... Your bauble cards are great - and as for that background... well Brilliant.
    What a fun week you've had.
    Take care. God bless.

  8. All your cards are absolutely divine, Lynne! If I had to choose a favourite - it would have to be the ones with the baubles! They are simply magical! Loving your nature shots as well - each season has its own beauty and you captured the fall mood beautifully! Have a wonder-full week! zsuzsa #28

  9. Lovely post, Lynne. Your cards are all beautiful - so many lovely designs. I'm looking forward to reading all about the fabulous baubles and how you made them. Your photos from your garden are wonderful but those of rowan berries are stunning.

    Happy WOYWW and have a great week.

  11. Beautiful photos. Love the scenery. Your Christmas cards look wonderful. I feel quite lazy. I've come nowhere near making 30 cards! I was quite pleased that I managed to get a few made.

    Happy WOYWW

  12. Hi Lynne, awesome photographs. Beautiful, truly. love the cards. I love it when you get that 'I wonder what would happen if?' moment, or the ' I know what I can do with this technique' one. Makes it all so much fun. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #5 xxx

  13. Your photos are beautiful! What a view! I also make my cards until I decide to stop, then see who gets them this year! I'm only up to 8. . . Yours are gorgeous, especially the ones with the Magenta Dye ink powders - I will have to look those up! Thanks for sharing, Lindart #41

  14. Beautiful cards Lynne, absolutely worth a bog post for the baubles and magenta powders style. Lovely lovely lovely. Wirth keeping the messy area a bit glittery for now. Although your understanding of 'messy area' is a little different to mine!
    Magnificent photos,my word, hasn't Autumn been kind to us this year.

  15. What treat of a post! Your cards are all so lovely! I love the baubles with the Magenta powders! Autumn is definitely changing the views now - a lot of leaves have already fallen! Chrisx 29

  16. your cards are beautiful and what an amazing space to work in!!

  17. Your cards are gorgeous! Love the use of Stickles. And your photos... oh my!!!!!!
    Thanks for the visit and hope you have a great rest of the week!

  18. All of the beauty in your post, both cards and nature, and I keep going back to look at your absolutely adorable dog card! Great job being motivated this week... rainy days make me feel more creative too. ❤️ Have a great week! ~Heather~ #47

  19. Hello Lynne,

    Beautiful area where you live! You definitely got close to the raindrops on the tree.

    Your cards are beautiful. Every single one of them! No wonder you are still going strong at number 30. The tree background that you haven't used for a card yet looks amazing. Why not frame it?

    Thank you for visiting me already!
    Happy WOYWW

  20. Beautiful christmas cards and I love all the scenic photos. I never get tired of looking at beautiful things. Have a great week! Vickie #52

  21. Hi Lynne, great post. Loving your bauble cards, your snowmen and the little dog.... well all of them! Great photos too, beautiful images. Thank you for the visit to mine and happy woyww, Angela x 14

  22. Wow Lynne..great photo's. That last Rowen berry one looks like an eye with lashes shedding a tear. Very cool!
    Your Christmas cards are wonderful. I like the fact that they are different, keeps them interesting!
    Chris # 30

  23. every single one of your cards are just super Lynne, but I am partial to those ornaments WOW :) I love all the floor space you have in your corner too. thanks for the earlier visit ~ Stacy #44

  24. Wow Lynne, you are so busy and productive! I love your brusho-type cards, especially the ones with the trees. Beautiful! I love your studio space too - it all looks very intriguing. You are a genius photographer to get such stunning shots of your surroundings, and those beautiful and amazing photos of the water droplets. Just amazing! You live in an absolutely beautiful place and I think I'd be snappping away with my camera if I was in your position too! Thank you for your lovely enthusiastic comment and I'm glad you like my studio even if it is in a mess at the moment! I need to spend some serious time in there... I have got a lot of Really Useful Boxes as well as some odd ones - havving clear containers really helps, and the boxes keep things nice and organised. I've probably got far too much stuff, but then haven't we all lol!! So glad you like my digital drawings for the Bible study group, too. I am having such fun with those, and learning all the while, too.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
