Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Tag You're It

I made this tag for
Punches or Die Cuts

This tag's final destination is Australia for a swap.

I started with a plain generic tag from the office supply store. I glued on a
second tag for more support then distressed the edges. While cleaning my stamp
with a wet wipe I used the wipe to daub a little more distressing over the
stamped music. The die cut was glued and sprinkled with copper glitter and
left to dry while I continued on with the tag. A little hat picture there, a
plastic shoe there, a pretty butterfly and maybe some wings to go
at the bottom. The tie is scraps of old lace, a fringe rose (also distressed),
strands from a tassel. My die cut is dry now and placed over
the wings. Maybe a pearl or two here and there. The edges are
trimmed with gold sticker strips. I never really know where I'm going
to go with an altered item. They just sort of happen. I'm happy with
this one.

One place I would go if I were you is to the

There is a 50% off sale going on right now. That's 50% off from
8 Designer's fabulous digi stamps.

Soon to come will be Cutting Files for your Cricut, Silhouette, Craft Robo or Wishblade!
Wendy and Jeanette have started to sell their Custom Made Greeting Cards too!! Tell your friends who do not create cards to take a look at their Gorgeous Cards. They will be putting some more in the store real soon.
Soon our I Did It Creations Shop is going to have a bit of everything
for your crafting pleasure.
Even Greeting Cards from me.
Since, I only have one card in the store right now, I decided to
change my logo. My last name is Waters, my creative name is
H20 Creations.....don't you think something with water would be
appropriate. This is what I came up with. I'll be adding more
cards in the shop today.

Speaking of water, we are having quite a down pour right now. So far
this week we've had a quick shower go through every day. Ahhhh, it is
so green and beautiful here.
If I don't wash away I'll see you tomorrow.
Have a wonderful day.
