Drink Me! ... Winebottle Tags

Jeg er helt i ekstase idag ~ Tim Holtz' nye bok Compendium II kom i posten, med autograf og hilsning (sikkert en standard, men alikevel!) 
"Hilde ~ Stay curious.." *dåne* Fra Kongen selv Neste T.Holtz tingen jeg kommer til å gå til anskaffelse av er diesen hans med Tag'en, det holder ikke å klippe ut selv - får aldri hjørnene helt like..

Venter også på pakke fra Simon Says med alle 37 nye Distress Markers som vist frem på CHA messen i USA ~ brukte opp de $50 jeg vant i februar for A Whimsy Home kortet mitt ++ Gjett om jeg gleder meg til å ta de i bruk! Se en av Tim Holtz demoer hos ScrapTime! Fant samtidig en utrolig kunstner på YouTube ~ Brett Weldele, som bruker Distress ink til å male bilder med ~ fantastisk!

Men her er altså et par tags jeg lagde for en stund siden, den ene for å ha på bursdagsgaven til yngste broren min, Kevin. Ser kjempegod ut denne vinflaska, og veldig kult med Alex Rosé(n) vin ;)

I am in heaven today, as my copy of Tim holtz Compendium II book arrived in the mail ~ signed & delivered by the King himself With a sweet note "Hilde ~ stay curious.." standard quote I'm sure, but nevertheless ~ My preciousss! ;)

Can't wait to get my Distress Markers & start using them ~ used up my winnings at Simon Says Superstore (Whimsy Home card) on a pre-order, mid to late march they start shipping! Hope it won't get held up too long in customs ~ just check out the possibilities in ScrapTime's Tim holtz CHA Demo, and also the amazing comicbook artist Brett Weldele's awesomeness with Distress inks, markers & stains!!! Hmmm... I will be needing some more stains soon too!..
 Showing my tags off on this cool Alex Rosén bottle of wine that I got for my youngest brother Kevin's birthday ~ but he'll receive it a little past due, as he never comes to visit (and to hang up my lighting fixtures) so Happy UnBirthday to him! ;)
