Art Impressions Challenge #67

      Hi, it's me again!  Getting ready for a crazy heat wave that is going to usher in the first days of Summer.  They say it should be back to "normal" by the weekend.

     I realized I was running out of time for the Art Impressions Challenge for this week, so I hopped to it, and came up with a tag to cover the Husband/Father theme.


Manila Tag, digi papers, background and sentiment unknown stamps, coloring with Copic Markers, stitched ribbon, hemp twine, and a great AI stamp K-1686 Slim the cowboy popped up with dimensionals.

     I also want to share a photo of my new stamp rack that DH made for me.  We saw the idea on Pinterest, and he ran with it!  It came out super awesome, but whatever made me think I was going to create lots of room.  Basically, it holds my Art Impressions stamps, and my House Mouse stamps.  I put some of my large stamps on the wider shelves on top.  All I cleared was one drawer and three shoe boxes.  LOL!  Guess it's a help, huh?  I love that the door hides it when it's opened.

     Thanks for paying a visit!

Love the tag with the twine, and that stamp rack/shelf is awesome! Now you can SEE your stamps at a glance instead of rooting! I'd like a whole wall like that to be honest! LOL
