Happily today I get to go around the world on a desk to blog hop, staying inside nice where it is nice warm with a cuppa! If you'd like to join in the fun starts at Julia's blog in the UK!
Last week I need to apologize to my fellow hoppers as I was unable to get around to everyone's desk and leave a little love.. to much going on and then we had snow!!! I'll do better this week!
Here's my desk today:
I am participating in a 4 for 4 card swap for Oriental Stamps Arts and the theme is "Pagoda"
I wanted to keep this really simple, I printed a background paper from SherryKdesigns on yellow paper. I'm not sure who makes this pagoda harbor stamp but it is tricky to use. I used rangers 231 solvent ink on Kromekote paper.
A little hard to see as I photo'd them in their plastic bags for the swap. I like this very much as it is simple! The card base is a Strathmore 87# smooth warm white and the printed cardstock is a 65# smooth light yellow, I think it is a Wausau paper. I did a little coloring with Tim Holtz markers, they work great on the Kromokote paper!
I made this card yesterday for my a friend who gave me a wonderful can of real Maple syrup she picked up on a trip to Montreal. If you ever see me with a sign, "will work for food" believe it, I will!
Yes I crack myself up!
The background paper which looks like a Philip Morris design is a G45 from the couture collection and the image is a digital I made.
Lastly I wanted to show you some of the Christmas gifts that I made and had on my desk for WOYWW#238:
from this deluge of paper crafting came these
these are books of scripture that I made, 365 - one for every day
There were three more of these that I forgot to take a picture of, I made 7 altogether.
These are simple journals that I made for two of my younger friends!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!
