Happy Hump Day....

Hello Everyone...Hope you are all doing well this evening!!! I'm rather late on getting my blogpost done....but I was determined to get it completed before I went to bed this evening....I spent the afternoon tweeking my blog and my ARTHaven....Always something to tweek in our rooms isn't there!! ;)
I thought I would share with you a tag I created a few weeks back for a Patriotic Tag Swap I was involved in.....the vision I had for this tag actually came through into the finished product so I was quite happy!!! Here's the  tag....

There is alot of dimension in this tag and I just absolutely love how it turned out...I created a grungy star stencil with my Silhouette Cameo so That I would create star texture on the base of my watercolor paper.....once that dried I pulled out some water colors and did the red at the top and blue at the bottom.....dried with my heat gun then used some red and blue distress ink to give a touch more color to the 2 areas.....added fun foam to the back of the watercolor paper and then adhered that to the red cardstock...and attached both of those to the blue cardstock....added some of the stencil cutouts of the stars to the white layer for another layer on the card....added and eyelet to the top of the tag....used Mixed Media Adhesive to add the metal embellishments and the button.....I cut the banner label with my Silhouette Cameo as well as the phrase "Let Freedom Ring!!" with black mat vinyl. Added a bow to the top and fibers.....this turned out to be quite a nice card and I'm very happy with  it!!!

So....I have a question....I am contemplating joining a stamp/card kit club of some kind.....just not really sure what's all out there.....Would some of you please give me feedback on what your favorite ones are??? I know I don't like the childish/cuteish images....I don't want to jump into several all at once...I'd really like to dip my toe in and see if it's something that will bring me joy....know what I mean.....I watch alot of Youtube videos of the amazing fun so many of you have with these kits....I've just never jumped on that bandwagon as of yet.....So...please let me here from you.....

I would also love to hear what you think of my tag........As always...THANK YOU so very much for stopping by and visiting with me...Means more than you know...I wish you all a very blessed week...and hope to see you again very soon!!! Until next time...
