Another month, another tag. My time hasn't allowed for a lot of creating, but at least I've got the Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2015 challenge
to keep me going. This is the June tag. It follows Tim's tag pretty faithfully. The plaid background is pretty cool up close. The iced latte is tempting me right now.
Happy Memorial Day to everyone. I finally got a chance to work in my studio, so I decided to work on the 12 Tags of 2015 challenge
. I thought I'd give my tag a little Memorial Day flavor. I thought that the image of the sailor was perfect for the day. I also love the sentiment "When nothing is sure, everything is possible."
Here is my version of the April tag for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2015
. I love this one. Tim's flowers are so pretty. I actually was able to get the background sprayed with the sprayer and the distress markers. WooHoo! There is nothing like a Tim tag to get my creative juices flowing.
As my blog shows I have been absent from my studio for quite a while. I'm fine. I just have extra "Nana duties" and no energy left over. I wasn't able to do my March tag
in March, but I don't want to miss a month's tag, so I finished March too. I love the distress paint and tissue tape background.
March is racing by and Easter is right around the corner. This little girl (SweetStamps) in her Easter b
onnet holding the adorable little b
unny says it all. The image is colored using watercolor pencils. My card background and the E-A-S-T-E-R letters are kraft cardstock. The grass, egg diecuts, and ovals are all cut from Cheery Lynn Design dies.
I am entering this card in the following challenges: Cheery Lynn Designs

March has finally arrived. Although we are still covered with snow here in Chicago, the weatherman is promising warmer temperatures in a couple of days. I sure hope he's right.
My card today, created with the Mojo Monday sketch in mind, celebrates St. Patrick's day. My card base uses kraft cardstock. The white background is dry embossed using a Tim Holtz background texture fade. The green panel and shamrocks are cut from glittery cardstock. The sentiment is one of the Tim Holtz stamps and is framed with glossy gold. The card is finished with a pearl embellishment that I have hoarded for a long, long time.
