Hello friends! Today is the 17th and if you're a Waltzingmouse Stamps fan like I am, you know today is Blog Party day! If you're new to all of the hubub, head over to the Waltzingmouse Stamps blog for more details! And, there's probably even still time for you to play along! :)
The theme for this month's party is "the great outdoors" and what better set than the new My Island which I happily inked up! I took a piece of patterned paper and cut it down to fit on top of a large shipping tag. I stamped the paper with the little hut and the big palm trees in a pale brown ink so they were more of a background. I stamped the grunge rectangle in pale yellow and then stamped the sun in pale apricot over it and then topped it with a pale brown set of the smaller trees, cut it out, and distressed the edges. I inked all of the edges to give it a bit of a vintage feel and then finished it off with some crinkle ribbon and some twine.
Thanks so much for visiting today! We've been so busy getting ready to buy our dream home (still in escrow for another month so keeping fingers crossed), I've not had much time to visit blogs lately. But, I read every single comment and appreciate every one! I promise I'll be by to visit again soon! Have a great day!!
