Below is my offerings for the challenge.
Hope you like them.

Inspire Yourself


That's the inscription that on the stamp I used to make my Valentines Tags for the swap on the All Things Tim Yahoo Group. The woman on the stamp just spoke to me as the perfect image for a Valentine. I hope all the recipients like them as much as I did making them.

All 6 tags together.

Sealed with a Kiss!

Pictures of the Motorcycle Damage

Here are a few pix of the damage to the motorcycle.

Nasty scrape and ding to the tank and nice cracked windshield.

That used to be the shifter

Motorcycle Crash

Hey everyone

Wanted to share my misfortune :(
I crashed on my motorcycle Friday afternoon. I have a fractured shoulder and a fractured ankle both on my left side. I believe in the power or prayer so if you could send one my way it would be most appreciated.

You can see my x rays below. Yes I had a helmet on. I hit some gravel on the road and left the roadway and crashed onto the ground not the pavement thank goodness

Thanks In advance

Inside My Own Head

Yes its been a while since I posted to my blog but you know Christmas just wears me out.

My first blog offering of 2010 is the Artist Choice ATC, Artist Trading Cards. This swap is for the All Things Tim Yahoo Group.

When you think about art, it all comes from your thoughts or ideas so what better way to convey that thought but with head stamps.
Having a few of these in my stash made the creativity flow easily from my head to the card stock, paper and ink!

This is using one of Tims background techniques he taught in his recent 12 Tags of Christmas. I stamped the image and embossed it with Black Soot Distressing powder. The inside my own head is from Paper Artsy another favorite stamp company. I have several listed on my eBay store

The backs which I signed and again used both stamps from Tim Holtz and Paper Artsy.
Drop me some feedback or subscribe to my blog and let me know what you think.
