Do You Believe In Magic?

Happy Monday all you lovely bloggers and I hope your weekend was wonderful! I started singing that song by "The Loving Spoonful," when I came up with the post title and I bet you did as well!
I just love this quote from "Quotes and Quotables" from Artistic Outpost.  It is a good reminder about that "Magic" inside of all of us and sometimes it hides out a little and we need to wake it up!
The background for both tags was inked with Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord and flicked with some water and also Distress Stains. The large tag background was also embossed using a Darice folder and I inked Dusty Concord over the Peacock Feather areas and vise versa!
The smaller tag was covered in crinkled foil with double sided tape and inked with various blue and purple alcohol inks, until the color matched with the manila background. Cut out a little opening with one of Tim's movers and shapers for the "Quote," which is heading over to Country View Crafts Challenge, "Quotations and Sayings."
The Flapper Girl from "Flapper Fashions," was perfect for sharing the magic. She was watercolored using Broken China, Dusty Concord and Tattered Rose Distress Stains. Her jewelry was colored with Spica Glitter Pens and of course she was fussy cut!

You have plenty of time to pull out you Artistic Outpost stamps and join in the August Referral Program, which is anything goes, so go get inky!

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to comment! Enjoy the week!

In answer to your question...no discounts from Henry - but yes because my Dad was an engineer for Ford Motor Company. I can however, be buried in the Ford Family cemetery in Detroit where Henry, my ancestors and Dad are all buried. :) Happy Wednesday dearie!
