Fireworks are legal in Indiana so the kids (and adults) in the neighborhood have easy access to them. Moriko (our fur baby) had a horrible weekend.. .she spent most of it trying to find somewhere to hide from the loud bangs - they're not going off as much as they were earlier in the week, but it's not uncommon to still hear them every evening. A loud BOOM! to startle you when you least expect it! And then WOOSH! Moriko is off and running for cover!
We've got a great new challenge for you to try at Tag You're It! The inspiration this week is from our guest designer Donna Mikasa. Take a look!
Beautiful inspiration right? I was excited by the different elements on Donna's tag - the watercolor wash background, the embossed and distressed floral images, simple sentiment and sprikle of enamel dots.
I did some searching to find the perfect detailed stamp that would be good for this technique.. something with a matching die of course! And remembered I just got this one in the mail last week! All the stamps and die cuts on my card are from Poppystamps - they're a sister company of Memory Box. We're in the middle of a blog blitz there showing all the new holiday items and offering a prize on every post - so if you have time you should go check it out!
