Dreams of Youth

Add caption
Can you tell I'm on holidays? I've been having a lovely time the past few days playing with my stamps and doing a little surfing on the net! I found another challenge blog that caught my eye and thought I'd make a piece for Tag Tuesday this week. The challenge was to create a tag using only stamps and ink - no printed background papers or embellishments allowed! I did wonder how I'd go, knowing how much I love using those types of products. And this week's Wednesday Stamper theme is 'Dreams', so I guess this piece fits the bill for both challenges!

Anyway, I pulled out the very gorgeous Paperbag Studios plate 'Stitched and Tied' and put ink to many of these stamps for the first time! The focal image is 'Grace', the words are from 'Keep True' which are also both PBS stamps.

Keep true to the dreams of your youth... time to reflect and think about what they were.. I remember always wanting to sing - and I do, pretty much on a daily basis with my students and at church. How about you??? Will you share a youthful dream or two with me - one which still plays a role in your life today?

Sue, I love your tag! And you've made your own ebellishments but stamping the buttons and cutting them out. Thanks for giving Tag Tuesday a try this week:)
