Life is Art ...

Beer 3a

I love that stamp! Yes ... it is ... another Wendy Vecchi stamp!

When I saw the Lots to Do challenge was all about words this week ... I just had to give it a goBeer 3!

I have up-cycled yet another Beer Mat and this  time I coloured it with Brushed Corduroy ... in fact everything here is coloured with Brushed Corduroy apart from the Copper Krylon pen and the Vintage Photo distress stickles.

My teensy weensy grunge flowers are made from the smallest flower on the Artistic Stamper Flower Power sheet and the numbers and ticket stamp are both by the Crafting Legend that is Mr T!m Holtz.

I hope the sun is shining where ever you are and you are enjoying your Bank Holiday weekends!
