Eight!

Tag8b1006

I really should apologise for the rather rushed nature of this tag! I have spent the day clenching my fists ... bending my arms upwards from the elbow ... tensing every muscle in my body and then jogging on the spot really quickly!!! Oh Yes ... that is how excited I am today!!!

I can now share some truly fabulous news with you ... not only will I be actually on Ranger U in eight more sleeps ... but I have also heard that Wendy Vecchi is going to be there too .... yes ... THE Wendy Vecchi!!! I get to meet her in seven more sleeps. How totally cool is that? I am bursting at the seams with excitement!Tag08a1006

Just in case you have n't kept up ... that means that I will see Lord Tim of Holtz ... THE Wendy Vecchi ... Suze 'Meltpot' Weinberg ... Claudine 'Collage' Hellmuth and all in the same place at the same time with all my favouritist ever products ... EVER!!! This is better than winning the National Lottery and it just keeps getting better :0)

OK ... back to the business in hand ... this is tag number 8 from the Ten tag countdown to Ranger U! Anneliese's tag will be here and a big Thank you to all the other bloggers that are joining in too by making a tag and linking it back to here ... you can join in if you like ... the more the merrier.

Tag8c1006 Colours on my tag today are Aged Mahogany, Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Old Paper and Mustard Seed! I have used Tim's text stamp, Paper Artsy flourish and Darkroom Door's cute little Frangipani flower. The Lord Tim of Holtz hardware is all coloured with Cranberry Alcohol ink ... you know Tim ... the man that can bungee jump without the use of a bungee rope off the side of the Brooklyn Bridge while building an entire school for under privileged children with just the felt pad of an alcohol ink applicator and a dab of Black Soot Dabber!

Right I must be away ... I have 20 zillion things on my to do list and only eight sleeps to do them all in :0)

Laters!

Carmen said...

Calm, calm, deep breaths. I don't want to see on the news that you were both escorted off the plane for suspected drunken behaviour when it's just (I say 'just' very lightly) Ranger U mania! Aaaaaaaand relax!

sutty said...

Wow - how exciting - can't wait to hear all your news and see pictures from your trip. Your tag is gorgeous - great colours. Not long now :)

Anne said...

I can feel your excitement from here!

Linda said...

love your enthusiasm. I truly enjoy (and look forward)your blog.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

For a "quickie," that is one really beautiful tag. I love the color combination you used.

I really like how you keep describing Tim Holtz. I wonder if he even knows about this challenge and all the lovely things you are saying about him.

I know you have a lot on your plate right now, so I will make this short and sweet. You (and your blog) are my blog pick of the day for tomorrow (June 11). Love your blog and these tags are all over the top.

KAT said...

Love your count down and I am very jealous! You love Wendy - she's really nice but you'll be surprised - she is a little on the shy side...
BUT you are one lucky women going to Ranger U!

Paula Gale said...

oh my god - i hope you have plenty of tena lady with you cos your sure gonna wee with excitement soon!!! LOL

The tags brill - it looks like its on fire - i can feel its warmth from here...

If I cud, i'd do a happy dance for you - but my happy dancing days are over for now... Hope to resume them sooner rather than later.

themessycraftroom said...

Oh Wow no wonder your excited.Im green sat here. Don't know how your managing to sleep.
Just love your countdown tags they are gorgous. Love the colours on this one too. xChrisB

Dallying Debz said...

Apparently that's the magic number. Pity the tag is sooooo rubbish! Alright I might be lying but that's ok cos I've contacted the FBI and warned you are on your way. There's no chance of you making it to Ranger U so I thought I might just turn up on the day and see what happens!

craftimamma said...

Oh you lucky, lucky girl! Colour me Peeled Paint, Lol!

Love all these tags Linda. Fab colours on this one. Yesterday's (which I missed) was pretty cool too. The little Frangipani flowers are really sweet.

Hugs
Lesley Xx

wendy vecchi said...

Debi said...

Heather said...

Val said...

Think you will need some tranquillers before you get on the plan otherwise it is going to be a bumpy ride! For everybody! HeeHee ...

Lynn Stevens said...

The one thing that amazes me about your work (ok, well maybe the 5th thing!) is the sheer intensity of the colours. Every piece you do is so saturated with colour (and as the recipient of a piece of your work I can, without prejudice, affirm the fact it is INK and not PHOTOSHOP that produces the effect!) that if it's too early my eyeballs just ZAP open while my brain goes WOW!

Although the ENVY, you getting to go the RU, is unreal (I'm thinking cats and claws for 7 more sleeps) I will TRY to contain myself if I play along

I just got 4 MORE of the texture fades and need an excuse....

Olivia said...

Yours Artfully said...

Lou and Mel said...

How exciting!

Number 8 - fabulous too!

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Hi Linda, I've got an award for you on my blog ;-)
I realise you may be too busy to pick it up and sort it out, but there's no time scale ;-)
Anne xx

Kathy said...

The tag is fab. I love the colours and it doesn't look rushed at all.

On a scale of 1 - 100, just how excited would you rate yourself?

chantille said...

Linda, can I come with, I'll fit in your case and you won't even know I'm there :)

How are you managing to sleep??? I know for a fact that I could not possibly sleep a wink and it would worse as the excitement grew.

Nicks said...

Oh sorry I cant join you at Ranger but I have arranged Tescos to deliver the shopping that day...

Thanks for sponsoring me Linda, you are a star... thought I had already posted on this link but I cant find it now!

Gillian said...

Slow down woman, you will have no energy left for Lord Holtz and Ranger U lol, another inspired tag Linda:)
