Tim Holtz: The Journey Male Birthday Card



I recently began collecting Tim Holtz stamps and his other unique products when I could use a coupon for them @ Michaels. Love his "grunge" style and knew it would be perfect for guy cards. Since my GF Ilene's already sent my hubby a birthday card for the upcoming Friday occasion, I decided I'd better get a card made for him. LOL! So out came Tim's set, The Journey. I enjoyed working with these fabulous acrylic stamps very much and look foward to being able to add more to my tiny collection. Some day, I'd love to have all my Christmas cards done and mailed early and then spend December joining him in making his Twelve Days of Christmas Tags. They are sooo gorgeous and unique, because he includes many of his unique, clever and creative ideas/techniques in each and every tag. If you've never seen these, click on my link above and then you'll find all three years' tags from 2007 through 2009 -- you'll be very glad you did, trust me!!! Enjoy the eye candy!!!
