Find inspiration in the song or rhyme:

NEW YEAR’S WISHES

What shall I wish you?

Treasures of earth?

Songs in the Springtime,

Pleasure and mirth?

Flowers on your pathway,

Skies ever clear?

Would this assure you

A Happy New Year?

What can I wish you?

What can be found

Bringing you sunshine

All the year ‘round?

Where is the treasure,

Lasting and dear,

That shall assure you

A HAPPY NEW YEAR?

I printed this image to make a single layer card and painted it with shimmery watercolours. The white dots on the berries were made with a narrow Posca pen.

I then added the Stamplorations sentiment.  

Hope you will join in the challenge...

            WOYWW

Wednesday again, so I am linking to the Stamping Ground

Follow the link to find out more about What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday and maybe join in... This is my post for WOYWW #655

So last week - I got to Friday and suddenly realized I had missed Wednesday - so sorry not to join in with #654!!

And today is probably going to be short...we are getting into the Christmas spirit. My daughter has moved in for the duration and our youngest son and girls will arrive tomorrow.


This is my desk picture for this week:


I was just doing a junk journal page with a prompt from Carolyn Dube - using my Gelli plate, a stencil and pens.


I finished off a canvas that was a workshop from the virtual retreat I attended at the beginning of December.


I shared the Christmas tree Kevin had put together out of scrap wood. This became my junk tree using bottle tops...


We also now have lights around the house and an inflatable kangaroo and koala...


On Monday we went on a picnic with Dan, Lizzie and Ollie - this is Dad with his little lad:



My final picture is the next stage of our build!





Hope you are all well - stay safe...

With very best wishes for Christmas and the New Year!

Happy WOYWW !! I hope to call on all of you this week...
