it ends with a GIVEAWAY!

phew...I've been busy...
but haven't created anything new for the blog...
YIKES!

however...
I do have some fun posts coming up for Ranger...
with some fun projects & techniques...
so...stay tuned...

here's a photo I found...
don't think I've shared this before...
this is the inside back cover of an art journal...
it's created with 2 large art parts pages...

and here's the pull out tag...
the saying is clear embossed, 
making it so easy to use the distress markers...

love the saying...and the flourishes too...



and for something random...

ever wonder what 2000 Ranger manila tags look like?
here's the first 1000...
getting assembled for the Ranger classes @ The Queen's Ink...

I plan this assembly to take over the counter, 
so there's NO WAY I could possibly make dinner...
that's double dipping
or killing 2 birds with one stone 
and it works EVERY time!
sorry Rick!


and like the title says...
it ends with a GIVEAWAY...

this shows the prize for one lucky commenter...
it's a big stash of 
my favorite Blossom Bucket pieces...


it's my THANKS to YOU...
for being 
THE BEST BLOG FRIENDS...
EVER!

I'll be back on Monday with the winner...

WAIT...
don't forget the secret code

WVST20

use it over at Simon Says...
it's good until the 30th @ 11:59pm EST...

it gets you 20% off my stamps...
just saying...
if you NEED any...

and if you spot a detail water brush...
you WILL want one...

I have a super fun post coming up that uses the detail water brush in a unique way...
and it's CRAZY SIMPLE...

so if you want to be prepared...
ps...I LOVE the broad tip brush too...

time to go...

just leave your comment & 
you'll have a chance at the 
Blossom Bucket goodie package!

have a wonderful weekend!

as always...
make art!

I really do like journal pages with pockets... and neat things tucked into pockets. And the vintage-ness adds to the appeal.
