Hello Wednesday

I'm so excited today as I received an email from weinerhoneymooners letting me know she had showcased my scrapbook page from Tuesday on her blog.  I know I always get inspiration from reading blogs, but this is an amazing thing to happen to me.  Thank you so so much!

Yesterday I met up with some crafty friends for the day.  We usually get together once a month to make a card or scrapbook page and swap ideas.  The stand out for me yesterday was this zentangle design made by Barb.  She used a peel off and then filled in the outline with her doodles.

I came home all fired up and rifled through my stash to see what I could find to have a play at this myself.  I ended up making three cards, one with a peel off that's been lurking in my box for years and two using stamps.  I think they turned out ok, but I would emboss my stamped image if/when I make some more. It's certainly a very relaxing process and reminded me of the endless doodles I used to draw all over the margins of school books and conference handouts.

Ink: Memento, Tuxedo black; Adirondack, cranberry
Stamps: Uniko Studio, Flower power#2, Background Builders Chevrons, Hero Arts, poppy
Peel off: Craft Creations
Pens: Promarkers with a fine nib
Embellishments: gems from my stash
Card & paper: from my stash

Thanks for looking.
