Enjoy Simple Beauty

Happy Saturday!  It's raining rubber at my house!  I have a few new releases just hit my desk that I am creating with. Of course that means not sharing anything too much on my blog. :)

I took a break from my other projects to create a tag for the Fashionable Stamping Challenge of Anything Goes
I used a combination of Artistic Outpost Sets to create my tag.  (Keeper, Whimsical Melange, Old Grist Mill) The background was supposed to emulate the flannel shirt. I had embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder and smeared a combination of blues, reds and brown distress inks over the surface.  My favorite was creating the string of fish. I stamped, colored with the coordinating distress inks and cut them out to attach to the twine.

Of course I had to add the ruler as every fish needs to be measured!

We are celebrating my youngest birthday with a family party. A little delayed due to our vacation.  Things are wrapping up for the summer. My older kids are back in school next week.  Maybe it will quiet down a bit after that.

Have a lovely weekend!
