Tag You're It #45 - Reminder

IMG_4078

Happy Friday!

Didn't this week go fast? Great weather, which we can all take, and made conditions traveling into Toronto so much easier for me.  I had a week full of appointments and tests, everything it fine just some annual checkups and an MRI.  It is exhausting though. Saturday we are heading up to Sudbury as both of the kids are finished school. Year three completed for Ben and year one for Brooklyn.  We are going up to help Ben move into his new apartment, apparently his furniture doesn't fit in his Civic--ha ha! and we are bringing Brooklyn and all her possessions home for the summer.  So after 8 months of it being really quiet around the house a flurry of activity is going to be happening for the summer.

So today I have a tag/card for the Tag You're It Challenge #45 reminder call. I am absolutely in love with the gorgeous ink blending on Carol's tag.  I had some big ideas for my contribution but when I packed up my road kit for my road trip I came without a few elements. I forgot to bring the stencil I was planning to use so instead I borrowed a clear background stamp from my Mom which I partially inked up with the Hero Arts Butterbar to Orange Soda Ombre ink pad.

When I went to do my ink blending, although I brought all of my Mini Distress Ink Pads with me, some of the ink pads didn't have their foam blender on the bottom so that limited my colour choices a bit.

Gorgeous tag-card, Tracey. And what ever didn't make it into your mobile crafting unit, wasn't needed. I love that background stamp you borrowed from your Mom; those arrows look like they were made for your design. And that sweet little butterfly! Love this!! Have a great weekend. Bev
