Good morning! Today is another chance to spy on each other's desks. If you don't know about this desk hopping, go to Julia's blog Stamping Ground where all is explained.
Here is my desk this morning:
There are some more freesias from my little courtyard. They are lovely and fragrant. Next to the monitor there is a pile of birthday cards that I am going to open as soon as my DH comes down with the breakfast he is lovingly preparing. Yes, it's my birthday today! Tada! I'm 65!
I'm typing this early as later on today we are going away in our campervan to the coast until Monday. I have a bottle of Chardonay in the fridge for our lunch on the way and tonight we shall 'dine' in a restaurant.
The other thing on my desk is... decoupage! Yes, it was fashionable years back and I still have a box full of decoupage sheets. I know most of you would shudder at the thought of fussy cutting in this age of Silhouette cutting machines, but I enjoy doing it and find it relaxing to do for an hour or so when I sit outside on the terrace in the sun. I did quite a few and I have put them all on some white paper for you to see.
Yes, definitely posed. Now all I need to do is make the cards....
I'm still continuing to do the free digital scrapbooking for beginners course at The Scrapaneers. I have finished my second lay out. Like last week it was complicated as I had to 'translate' from Photoshop Elements into the Adobe Photoshop CS6 that I have and then into Spanish as I have Spànish software!
I still have a problem resizing photos. In PSE if you resize them by the corners, it will be proportionate. In PSCS it doesn't do that and I don't know how to keep the photo in the same proportions. Anyone know?
A while ago, one of you was making a load of cards and asked if anyone would like a birthday card. I wrote back: "yes, please as I don't get many." Well, it arrived a few days ago, my mystery card from Canada. I've just opened it and it is beautiful!
It's from Michelle in Whitby, Canada. If you are reading this Michelle, a huge thank you! I am so 'chuffed' as they say. By far the best birthday card I received and the only handmade one.
That is it from me today. I'm going to open the rest of my cards now.
Oh, and I might not be able to do many visits or comments as I don't know if the campsite has wifi and if they have, how good it is.
Have a good week all of you and Happy Easter for those that celebrate our Lord's resurrection!
He is Risen, He is Risen indeed!
