10 Years of Art from the Heart!

Welcome to a very exciting blog hop in Celebration of 10 years of Art from the Heart!
  Lots of exciting things happening at Art from the Heart next weekend where the big birthday bash is happening. Want to know more then do click here to be magically transported to the wonderful Dy's Blog.
You cannot believe how excited I was when I was asked to be part of the hop ... they said ... "You can only use Lord Tim of Holtz products!" I said ... "You had me at ...erm ... You :0)"
So to make the chunky ATC ... I used a block of wood ... Ranger Manilla Cardstock ... Lord Tim of Holtz Distress Inks ... Rusty Hinge; Wild Honey; Forest Moss; Vintage Photo ... You know Tim ... the man that can swim the length of the Thames in under an hour while writing a critique of all the eateries along the way with just a Paper Piercing tool and an Edge Distresser. I digress ... I also used Claudine's Sticky Backed canvas ... Lord Tim of Holtz's butterfly die. an Ornate Frame ... some Game pieces ... a Snow Cap Dabber ... Ranger Jet Black Archival and Lord Tim's Shabby French stamps and a key hole!

So in Celebration Art From The Heart are having 5 birthday blog hops.
You should have reached my blog from Janet's fabulous blog ... here  and are on the Lord Tim of Holtz Team hop!
Before you move on - you will need to collect a letter from me which is T This is part of an anagram of a Lord Tim of Holtz product. Once you get back to Dys blog please email your answer to Ben by 6pm on Sunday 11th September 2011.
So after leaving me a comment you need to move on to
the uber talented Michelle's blog!
 Have fun hopping!
I am now on Day 13 of not smoking by the way!!!
Laters!
