Sir Timmie's July Tag

Hi All, Well the sun is shining lovely in East Sussex today.. whoo-hoo-- I hope you all are getting some sunshine too..

                            Proof the sun is shining the furr ball... doing what she does best sleeping zzzzzz
A big welcome to my new followers Its fabulous to have here!! Well I've been trying to complete my Tim Holtz July Tag... my version.. as this one I did'nt  have most of the products.. I only had blue alcohol ink no red... no stamps for the 4th July celebration... so I just had to ink the background of the card with Distress Inks ..used a crafty individual London scene stamp and a die cut of Big Ben from marianne D .. I did have his Kraft Core stack whoop, whoop.. Its my Birthday soon so I hope to top up on my collection of alcohol inks.. Thank you for your visit today.. Happy Saturday!! Hugs May x x x

Oooh this is fabulous May, I love your spattered inky background. I will have to check out the die too, I have a thing for Big Ben and the Eifel Tower lol. I can't say that we have managed sunshine up here, but at least it isn't raining. Mmmm I think I've got a very close relative to your furr ball - she's asleep on my bed at the moment! x

Lovely job May. I like the way you have used the inks on the background.

Love your take on this May. The background looks great, and a lot of us opted for the London theme rather than the American one. Looks just as good. Hugs, Buttons x
