#2 of 12 of '12 ...

Pin It


Happy Monday, crafty stampers ... hope your weekend was long and wonderful!

Today's altered tag was created for Tim's "12 Tags of 2012, March," for entry in the Order of the Opus Gluei's "Celebrating Trees and Nature" challenge following the Bingo pattern at Fashionable Stamping.

For more info on Tim's March, 2012, tag challenge ... or to check out Tim's tag and step-by-step tutorial, clicky HERE ... the other challenge info can be found below.

In addition to these challenges, this tag also qualifies for a number of fabulous challenges ... please refer to the bottom of this post for the complete list. And for the down-low on all of the exciting product I used to create this tag, check out the Tag Ingredients, below.

Soooooooo, this weekend Sheila and I planned a shopping expedition to the Mall. When Sheila's DH caught wind of our plans, he invited himself along.

"You two just go on ahead," Ken said. "I'm gonna browse in the hardware store."

An hour or so later, we returned and saw him at the checkout counter. The clerk was ringing up the last of a pile of tools and supplies that would fill two wheelbarrows.

"OMG, are you buying all this stuff?" Sheila asked incredulously.

"Well, yes," he said, embarrassed. Then waving his arm toward the interior of the store he added, "But look at all the stuff I'm leaving behind!"

Uh oh, there's one that'll come back to haunt him ...

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!

~Hugs,
