Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Ok it is official………………I am crazy……………………..I like Mondays!  Never used to like them when I worked, but I like them now.   In particular I like today’s Monday.  Why……………because both Sandra and I were runners up in the Avery Elle Monthly Challenge.  The theme was “Tags” and we  both got picked for our entries.  This is a good thing for many reasons.  One reason is that if  she had been recognized and not me, all of you would have been subjected to more of my )(*&^% and moaning about it.  If I had been recognized and not her, she would probably renew her efforts to drown me in a river like she tried last summer.    The third reason is that it is nice to be recognized for something that you like to do and would do, even if no one else ever saw it.

I also like Mondays because several of my favourite challenges are revealed on Mondays.  Simon Says Stamp new Monday Challenge is “gentlemen”.  Well, it seems like  Tim Holtz comes to mind immediately with a theme such as this, as many of the examples use Tim Holtz stamps.    One of the great things about Tim’s stamps are that they are timeless.  Vintage is ………..well………….vintage so it can’t look “out of style” and nothing says “gentlemen” more than top hats, canes and umbrellas, so Tim it is.

I decided to make my card vintage and timely at the same time.
