A Monday Post- What's On my Desk....

Hello, Everyone,

So much going on. Been up to visit my sister, Alison, and we created some stunning cards at Buffalo Stamps and Stuff.
 These are the samples. My look just as good or better. I loved everything about this type of card. We made the background with stencils and Alison feel in love with them. She had had limited practice with them before and mostly with using pastes or sprays with the stencils. The coloring here was done with Distress Inks and the Tim Holtz new round ink blending tool.
The coloring on the flowers is done with Copic markers. and blended on the edges. The stamp set is a Penny Black set called "Blooming Tags."

 I plan to make some sets of these to give as gifts this year. Please forgive the photography. The pictures came out rather yellow altho they are matted on white cardstock.
 What's on my desk today? Well, I need to catch up on some journaling in both my books and make a list of all the online classes that I am signed up for to keep track of them. There are several I haven't finished up and I want to do that before I start on any more.

 Hope to be back on Wednesday or Friday with a look at what I have done lately in my Documented Journal. Thanks for stopping by.

Cards came out great! I've always had trouble using stencils...the ink or paint always bleeds under the edges.

Cute cards! I like the ones with blues in them best.
