TAC Farewell Blog Hop

TAC announced last week that they will be closing their doors.  This came with shock and sadness to me and my fellow Angels.  Paper Wings and Shirley Hotop had been planning for a blog hop for today and they decided to continue on with this plan and make it more of a tribute ... so I just HAD to participate!

I had made this fun card and matching bag for a publication submission with a sketch that they had provided.  They did not choose it  :(   so the good news is that I can share it with you here!!!

I used the Level A set called Dotty Flowers ... I stamped them with various colors of pallet ink on this Kraft card.  I added the Sew Easy Floss to the bag and to the buttons.  I added the sentiment from Thinking of You stamped in black.  I aged the edges of the Kraft cardstock with Cognac palette.

The matching bag was made the exact same way as the card and I added a big, black, satin ribbon bow!

As most of you know ... I am moving on to another Home Demonstrator Stamp Company called Amuse Studios ... although I still am very sad about TAC, I am very excited about my new adventure.

As part of this wonderful Blog Hop I'd like to offer you a chance to win the stamp set that I used on my project above.  I have an extra of this set and it is brand new and uncut! 

Want to win it?  Just leave a comment here from now to Tuesday and I will pick a winner at 6pm on Tuesday 8/30.

Thanks so much for visiting!
