♥ Simon Says...An ATC or Tag! ♥

Happy 4th of July!! I hope you all are having a wonderful day today!! We will be grillin' and chillin'! Just us though! (And my parents!) We normally have a big 4th of July party but this year we decided to take a break. Just gonna eat, swim, relax and then go to the boardwalk at Seaside Heights (yes, where they film that gross show "Jersey Shore") and watch the Fireworks over the Ocean. It is only 5 minutes from here. So, have a fun and safe holiday everyone!!



This week's challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is to make an ATC (Artist Trading Card) or a Tag! And this week the Simon Says DT are featuring products by the Cutie-Patootie Mr. Tim Holtz!! I ♥  him!! I can't wait to see what you all come up with!!


I decided to make a Tag using one of Tim's White #8 Tags. I first sprayed the Tag with some Perfect Pearls Biscotti Glimmer Spray and Mist Bronze Glimmer Spray. I then layered some pieces of Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby Chic Papers onto the tag.


The adorable stamped images are from his Seamless Experience Cling Stamp Set. I finished off the tag with some White Opal Liquid Pearls, crinkled and hand dyed seam binding, a mini Maya Road Wood Spool, a button, sewing needle and some thread.


And, don't forget, Heidi will generously give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!





Have a super fabulous week!!
