CCC#32, Simon Says Stamp and Show a Tag, GC#88

Wow, it is hard to believe that we are at week 32 of Linda's Compendium of Curiosities challenges.  I am already feeling the withdrawal symptoms.  Thank you again Linda for taking us on this amazing journey.  We have almost reached our destination. OK, so I am being just a little silly!  Linda has us inking and stamping masks, Simon Says Stamp and Show a Tag, which sure made this easy.  Gingersnap Creations is looking for "coffee and cream" and although there are a couple of other subtle colors, I think this will work.    This was truly a fun tag to create!  I did masking on the "Umbrella" guy, soon to be a Tim Holtz Sizzix die cut and the rustic old truck.  The cobble/brick background is a stamp from I Brake For Stamps, which I thought made a pretty cool old time road.  All other stamps are from Tim Holtz.  I also made a little baby tag using two more stamps from Mr. Holtz.
Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend and have plans for a delightful weekend!  Sounds like many places are being blessed with some warmer weather, so enjoy it!  As always thank you for taking the time to visit and comment!
