Been and gone.

Last week was busy, we had some house guests and work sent me to an ATC workshop, see the results here…

The pharaoh was made by ironing wax paper over the stamp before sponging the ink over the top.

The leaf was supposed to work it’s way into a spiral, but by that time I was running late so I cut some corners (if you’ll pardon the pun).

For the tree we had to write a haiku on the other side (see below).

And the last was a veggie for earth day, because of it’s appearance I titled this card “World Beet”.

Here are some of the ones I got to swap for (we made duplicate cards).

Here’s a wax paper and a haiku card,

and a veggie and a spiral card.

We also made a flashing color card that I hated my results from and a marbled paper card that was great till I stamped over it.

In other news I went to Tucson this weekend and had a great time with some friends.

Managed to come back with a teacup…

I couldn’t resist.

I was from this great breakfast house called The Hungry Fox.

They shared a strip mall with a bar called The Kon Tiki.

It had a great bar tender and a curious clientele.

The good thing is that there is someone to keep them all in line!

    The heart shaped saucer is so cute! And I’m intrigued by the wax paper method. Sounds interesting but confusing!

    Beautiful cards! I especially like the tree haiku.

    I started growing some herbs and flowers this weekend. I’m looking forward to seeing (and tasting) my results. Last week we started some flowers for Emma in a little greenhouse, and they are already sprouting. It felt so good to get my hands dirty.

    You’ve been making some beautiful things… i love the beet (looks so yummy) would look good framed on your kitchen wall. Love the pink cup too, i collect old teacups too (it’s addictive isn’t it?) i read the bit about the bar as having a ‘tender and curious clientele’ which i think is quite poetic, then re-read it and got it, but think i will keep that phrase for later use… ‘tender and curious’ i like it! and i like your blog too… XX
