On The Funky Road...

...Blimey! Another Friday appears already! That means that it is my day for the Bubbly Funk DT... and I made a tag using some Tim Holtz stamps, Distress Inks and some LUSH Tando Creative chipboard... totally inspired by one of the 12 Tags of Christmas '09 by that clever American chap called Tim... the deets on how I made it all can be found on the Bubbly Scrumptious Blog here.




Did you spot something on this tag too??? Didya??? Go on, tell me you did!!! Look at the ickle Adage Ticket... do you see what is stamped onto it??? YES!!!!!!!!!!! It is one of Tim's new stamps from his 100th Collection - you know the ones that he autographed only 100 in Gold ink... bless her, Pamicat from the ATT group managed to grab for me when she was at Carson the other week... well, they arrived today! I say "they" as at the same time she also got me a couple of Wendy Vecchi's new sheets... I have to admit here and now that I was soooo excited to open the envelope... and now I have a little story to tell you about something that Grim said... I was so excited about the arrival of my new rubber babies that I had to show him, pointing out that the set was autographed by none other than Tim himself, you know, that Tim who had not that long ago been holding those stamps in his talented and more than likely inky hands... well, Grim said... I cannot believe that he said this... he said... *note I am still shaking with shock at such a thing...* "that he could get that scrawl off the bottom of the set using some Surgical Spirit!" Oh, he is a card, isn't he!!! Needless to say, I hastened to the Room of Stash and hid said stamp set... I know he wouldn't do that but... I am not taking any chances!




I now have four things with Mr Holtz's autograph on. The first thing he autographed for me was my very first Tim stamp... the very first time I stood there drooling, I mean watching him doing his demo's...that was in Feb 07! The same day he signed a mini suitcase I had altered...one of my first attempts at altering I hasten to add too..hence the nasty yellow inside.. I didn't alter that cos Tim had signed it and it would be sacriledge to cover over that! Then a piece of art I made and finally the 100th collection...oh, I am sooo lucky!



Anyways... tis nearly 2am and Grim is just home from work so I am off to make sure he can't get access to my stash ROFL... oh and the saga with the chair... thank you to Andrea n Jennie for making me laugh with you comments... and finally... I have been asked a couple of times how I stuck the bookpage to the CD I altered this week... I used... Claudines Multi Medium :O)) thanks for looking... have a goodly day! TTFN

Liking the tag :)), but I really haven't time to stop as I am learning today how to make caramel shortbread, so that I can bribe Grim, and sit on my chair! I could be some time though, as cake making is not one of my skills..rofl

LMAO at Grim! xxx

whyducks said...

Oh he is a tinker that Grim! Vanish over the signatures quick so he cannot get at them!

ellen said...

I DID NOTICE! Before I even read that it was true! What a great friend you have! I was also very lucky to get the 100th collection set (but mine isn't signed...) I have two signed DVD's and a signed book. Which Wendy sets did you get? (I have 3 so far.) Maybe our swap could be using our new Tim & Wendy stamps? Lemme know. :)

Love this tag, I have always loved that car image and sentiment and I have been thinking about buying tim's new stamps, problem is I keep buying, I'm going to need a 5 storey building at this rate to store it all. Lovely artwork Hels. Tracy Evans x P.S. you are a very lucky girl by the way!
