WOYWW ? Leonardo, that's who - Da Vinci ..

Happy WOYWW everyone - can't believe it's Wednesday again already...........

Well, I've been cracking on with Christmas cards - got quite a few more done at the weekend but only a couple since... 28 down.... not sure how many more to go!!

Here they are, teetering on the "scraps" box... along with some bargain Ten Second Studio tools from Lin's closing down sale at LB Crafts (am I going to miss her shop!)
So my desk tonight shows my Tag it On tag - theme - the Da Vinci Code - but inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci - hence the blog post title....

and my pile of Tim stamps that I used for the tag.

Check out loads more desks at Julia's here
And here is the tag itself.  I used Iced Spruce on the tag - I LOVE this colour more every time I use it - and the words were stamped on a reject tag that  I saved - can't remember now what colours I used for it, it's from weeks ago!! Apart from the "art" (make unknown) all stamps are Tim's.
As he was a man of great invention (Da Vinci, although Tim's not bad either!) as well as an artist, I used that as my source.

Check out my other team mates tags here at DragonsDream - and why don't you join in this week?

It is always sad when a shop closes and I am sure you are going to miss it. Lucky you though to be close enough to gain from the bargains to be had. I have been drooling on line...

It hasn't taken you long Helen to create 28 cards, well done you, love the look of the snowman one on top.great tag this week too, love the image. Tracy x

butlersabroad said...

Great to see a nice big pile of Crimbo Cards sitting there, I think I have more fun making them than sending them as I hate writing them all out! Great tag, I loved that book, incredibly interesting with all that symbolism explained, but a very predictable ending really. I would still recommend it as a good read though.

Sam said...

Be careful with those cards, I may just have to pop over and "borrow" some as I only have a few so far. I see that the Snowman stamp is flavour of the month. Love the one on the post below!!

Julia Dunnit said...

I wonder if this time next year you'll be fed up with the Spruce colour?!! Is it just a phase I ask myself, or is it in your heart?! Liking the teetering pile...at least where you work they won't have far to go if they fall!!
