Grunge Tag......

Good morning ladies!  I hope you are doing well....things have been a whirlwind here this past week and I didn't get to play much in my craft room.  The new DT has kept me busy; but I'm not complaining.  It has been so much fun receiving my first box of goodies and deciding what to do with them and I even got to meet one of the DT...it turns out Lisa Lynne Wright is a native of this area and she was coming home to visit and I got to have lunch with her on Wednesday.  It was a wonderful experience and I had so much fun....Thanks Lisa! 

Then of course, we have still had Spring Clean-up going on and then we had a couple of days of storms, rain, and lots of wind.  Just about blew all the blossoms off our Dogwoods!  And then yesterday, our Niki (our 11 year old Pug) has an abscessed tooth.  So we were scrambling for a vet, as our usual vet was out of town.  She got treatment and is doing much better.  We will continue to give meds for several days and if this doesn't clear up there will have to be some surgery.

So you can see what has been going on in my life. Not a lot of creative juices flowing....but I did manage to do a tag yesterday afternoon.

I used lots of Ranger distress Ink, some bronze embossed swirls and some Spellbinders dies for my medallion and the tag.   Lots of my own Pearl Ex Sprays that I stir up myself using Gum Arabic and Pear Ex was used to add shimmer.  It also softens the colors some so my tag has a look all it's own.  Also I distressed the edges of the tag .

I hope you enjoy this....I think I will enter it over at Joan's Gardens joanscreations.blogspot.com
Now I'm off to visit some of my favorite blogs this morning and then later, we are going to our local home improvement store to purchase pine bark nuggets and some cedar bedding for our dogs.  I'm hoping to find some flowers too!  Sounds like I will have another busy week ahead of me!

I am amazed you could make something this beautiful with all you have going on--you're putting me to shame out here!
Hope you find some flowers today! Most of that snow we got has melted again, so I'm just willing the sun to come out now and get rid of the rest of it! My kids let me sleep in both days this weekend, so things are looking up!

This is so pretty, reminds me of an Antique shop find, which always thrill me. I've been MIA, but on my way to create. We are having SNOW possibly 7 inches, roads east are closed and Electricity was out earlier.
