We had permission to do other things as we listened to the documentaries. That made it really interesting. I actually found it felt like more of it was sticking with me than if I had not had anything else to do. I can still hear the rhythmic chiming of the bells from the monastery.
I was planning to work on some cards, but I forgot something really, really important: adhesive. So, since I had my iPad with me, I used the time to catch up on a bunch of email. I follow a lot of crafty blogs and recipe blogs. I like to pin card ideas, scrapbook pages & recipes. I have pinned more than I can ever use and I don't care! One day I will benefit from having multiple versions of banana chocolate chip muffins. Yeah. That's the ticket. Yeah!
Ok, enough babbling. I finished off a set of cards from a workshop I took a while ago. I'm submitting the first one to the challenge because it's that I did the most work to complete. It was actually the first time I used a water brush/aqua painter to watercolour. I'm much more comfortable with my Tombows. I can see some spots where my inky fingers created blotches & I have to figure out how to cover them up.
All the other cards are made from kit. I can't remember what company the kit comes from, but I think it's My Mind's Eye.
There is still time to play so check out Addicted to Stamps Challenge #133 - Holiday before it closes!
I actually love this cared. I can see making a different version using some of my Christmas words/verses & my Stampin' Up snowflake framelits.
This one, too, could be easily recreated using patterned paper & either an image or a verse.
I love the verse on this card; I'm not sure how I feel about the triangles. Mostly, I am insecure as to whether I could ever cut paper well enough to recreate the effect. I do love the stars along the bottom and thanks to framelits & punches that would be easy to do.
