It's a beautiful morning.... rain-soaked ground, temperature is 71* F, cloudy, fresh smelling outdoors. Love it! We need the rain and I love a good slow one. It's the hard rains that bother me with the lightening, thunder, and flash floods. Anyway, today you get to see my desk! Yep, it's the day that Julia of the Stamping Ground organizes an international blog hop! And I've been busy.
I supposedly have a class on Thursday afternoon but unless 1 more signs up it'll be canceled. AZ Scrapbooking is doing their Christmas in July this week and I had a card, oversized tag, and a treat box prepared. Right now I'm working on die cutting LOTS of snowflakes from the Spellbinders Create-a-Flake die (which is no longer available). Later today I'll be cutting paper, printing directions, and packaging the kits. So you see on my desk the die holder on the far left, my Big Shot with dies ready to cut in the middle, and snowflakes on the right. This is a good way to use up scraps....
Early this morning I looked out on my back porch and my cute little lights were dripping with raindrops. I grabbed my trusty camera and this is the 3rd attempt to get a decent photo. Yep, it was dark out still, about 5:15 am mountain standard time (AZ doesn't do daylight saving time).
And this is one of my cards I made this week. I seen it on Michelle Zindorf's blog and I love her work. Stamps by The Angel Company (tree) and Red Rubber Designs (sentiment).
Here's a little closer look. Sometimes I can do a good job with my brayer and I lucked out on this card. Usually I have lines or streaks from the brayer edge.
I hope you join in on the wide variety of desks and projects by clicking HERE when you're done reading my post to head over to Julia's blog. And if you'd be so kind, leave a comment! I enjoy reading what you all think of my projects and photos! Thanks!
