Lindy's Stamp Gang and a Happy Day!!!

Hi Bloggers!

I know I have not been around since vacation. Really been busy with travel for work, and my day job. Just wanted to share a quick story and thank you, as well as my project for the Lindy Stamp Gang Contest.

Remember my Featured Artist Series? Well Tim Holtz was my Day 11 Artist, and at the time, I did not think I would be able to send his tag to him. My wonderful friend Clare, in the UK was attending a class that Tim was having, and she offered to present my tag to him. So, I mailed it over. That very night I heard from Tim Holtz directly, and was so panicked that I made another tag and sent that to him as well.

Anyway, the class was this week, and Clare gave Tim my tag. And she snapped apicture of him for me holding my art! What a total thrill. I am too happy for words.

Here is the picture:

So I wanted to make a frame for it. And another of my favorite companies was having a contest so here is what I created:

I used a cheap Dollar store frame which I colored using Lindy Stamp Gang Products. I used Moon Shadow mist in Crow's Nest Copper, Golden Doubloons, and Bucanneer Bay Blue. I also used Lindy's Starburst Spray in Hydrangea Blue. This was supposed to be about your favorite colors, so Copper Blue and Brown(currently). And I went ahead and added all of my favorite things: Tim Holtz, his products feathers, and a Prima spray I had hoarded forever. The little bird is K & Co, and there is tissue tape also colored with Lindy's Stamp Gang on the frame.

I love their products, so affordable and they are having a big sale!!! check them out:

So this contains all my favorites! Thanks Tim! Thanks Clare!

Big Hugs everyone!
