12 August 2008 Catching up

I haven't "mused" in a long time, so this will be an update kind of entry. The celebration of the 400th anniversary of the founding of Québec City has been literally "à l'eau"--drowned out. We had over 400cm of snow this winter, and have now had over 400ml of rain--so far. Practically every day brings a violent weather warning, and Sunday evening, the lightening and deafening cracks of thunder even scared the cats. I just try to take each day as it comes, and what better time to curl up with cats and good book than a rainy day!The following are cards I made for Inkstainers challenges.

Following are a couple of ATCs I made for the ATC Artists monthly mingles. One month was on mermaids, and the next month was "thumbprints." In the latter two, the cat, mouse and cheese, as well as the flowers, sun and Ladybugs were all made with inky finger or thumbprints.

I recently joined an online group, "Technique Junkies", whose members like trying new techniques in stamping. Here are my first cards using techniques from the TJ newsletter. The first is Layered Collage, the second, Designer Tiles. For a peek at what Technique Junkies is all about, go to: http://www.techniquejunkies.com/

That gets this blog pretty much up to date. See you soon.
