Celebrate It All!
So much excitement! The Tour de France is continuing in full force, Bastille Day (French Independence Day) was celebrated on the 14th, and France won the World Cup- after 20 years!! Best of all my Mom has been in France to enjoy it all along with celebrating she and her sister's birthdays in the mix!! I was there, in a way - more on that later:):)
And here's to another special celebration- over at Altered Book Lover hosted by Bleubeard and Elizabeth. Happy 5 years to T Stands For Tuesday!!! Elizabeth, you are an amazing blogger and hostess-thank you, and congratulations!
The candles are all lit and it's time to party!
Here is another card related to the "T" theme which I am also sharing with the Simon Monday Challenge (add a little sparkle):
I used an actual tea bag for this card:) Sorry for the bad pic-couldn't get rid of the bluish tint. It is a white card and the background paper is white too. Speaking of Simon Says Stamp- have you seen the new August 2018 Card Kit they put together? It is awesome- and it will be arriving at my door soon!!!
For Moo Mania and More(theme is butterflies) I have this ATC:
The tag card in my last post inspired me to make a group of ATCs using the same products and design- Ranger/ Tim Holtz.
A journal page:
A partial detail photo is at the top of this post. If I remember correctly, Eileen, a multi talented regular participant of T stands For Tuesday sent me some of her homemade washi tape - a bit of which I used here (beautiful...yes). So pretty! I used the credit card swiping method for the background along with a baby pink and neon pink acrylic paint. Washi tapes, dictionary page, tissue paper, rubber stamp sentiment, postage stamp,charcoal pencil, and Caran d'Ache water soluble crayons were used. Linking to Art Journal Journey ( Art For Art's Sake), Paint Party Friday, and Try It On Tuesday (Add a Quote).
That's it for this week. My Mom is returning home later in the week after a month in France so I have much to do to prepare for her return. Have a super and creative week-I'll be around to visit and see what you've been up to:)
