WOW #202-Kusudama?

Just a quickie post today to all the wowers out there.  Firstly I would like to apologise for not visiting very many others last week.   But on last Wed. afternoon I developed the dreaded virus that has been around all winter.  Better now but still have a rotten cough.  But on to better things, Kusudama refer to the flower I have been making while laid up last week.  They are made from individuals squares of paper, folded origami style.  Book is a new sewing journal I am starting, thought i would spruce it up.  Flowers are not attached!
For all the details re WoW hop over to the lovely Julia's @ StampingGround.  Have a good day everyone, and my thoughts go out to everyone over the pond in Boston.

WOYWW #200- When is a desk not a desk....

 When its the Dining Room explain yesterday I had a Play date with my pal Karin.  We had decided that we would make Tim's April tag, plus do the March one as well, as we both had not managed to do on time.  So desk made its way to the dining room, abit tidier than desk at the mo,  which is even worse than last week.  If you have no idea what I', talking about, hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground for the details.
 This is my effort for March.
This is the result for April . I have used the number  9 as that my birth date in April, what a sutle hint( I think not).  Hope everyone has a good day....

Tim's April Tag

This is my take of Tim's April tag.  I have use Peeled Paint and Broken china Distress paints as they are all I have, so then used some others to get the contrast.  Borrowed the Dragon fly stamp from my pal Karin.  For the wings I have used fantasy film as it give the iridescence.  Few do dads and used the number 9 as its my birth date in April. For details etc hope over to Tims Blog...
