Simon Says Shows Us Your Favourite Tim Holtz Stamp!




Hi
I had to make two male cards this week and it is not my top hole favourite thing to do, mainly because I am so bad at it. I know my limitations honestly.

Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge this week is show us your favourite Tim Holtz Stamp, well unlike a lot of other crafters I only possess two and both are minis, so what sort of crafter does that make me............rubbish........lol

Both cards use the Car stamp, one with a Tim Holtz Cutting Die and both with his embossing folders and of course his Distress Inks. Oops nearly forgot, the easel type card has a calendar on it but not clearly visible in the photo. Anyway I am entering these cards if only to make the other challengers items look fab, and they are, as have just been over to look at them. So if you want to see some great Tim Holtz stamps and wonderful creations pop over to Simon Says.

I am truly having a bad creative week, have been struggling with the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge this week - you have never seen such rubbish as my attempts at this - and then I found out what I was doing wrong. I will tell you all about it when I post it, you are just not going to believe how a person can be so dumb.

Thank you for popping in and supporting me, hope your week is going good, Annette x

Ob boy, so we have a new group called the "Rubbish Club." I struggled also and I am not just saying that, either too much or not enough. Both of your male cards are fabulously cool and will be well received! I love them and the technique turned out perfectly. Hugs to you!

You're just to hard on yourself, very clever use of that mini car and you always rock with Tim's embossing folders and distress inks.

These are both awesome Netty! Some weeks are like that, but I don't think it's as bad as you think, we're always our own worst critic, and all your work is amazing..

These are lovely Annette and you're being far far too hard on yourself. I know we all do it, but that's why we have each other :)
