Sunday Stamper - Week 159 - All Around My Hat

Well, I am just so pleased with myself and happy to have my tag ready for Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stamper Challenge  - #159 All Around My Hat".  

And what was really fun is getting to use one of the  new stamp sets I just got in the mail Friday from Artistic Outpost.  (They have two new sets released that they are calling British Invasion but those are not what this post is about ;->) 

I used the previously released set "Steampunk" because I like this guy's hat and the "Gentleman's Choice" stamp.  This tag also features stamps from Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 sets.  Some Tim Holtz Ideology goodness and tissue tape.  I also die cut out the On the Edge die:  Townscape and used it as a mask when I was blending on my Distressed Inks.

I found the quote online from Henry David Thoreau and thought it was perfect for this tag's theme.  "Live your life, do your work, then take your hat."  I printed it out with a free font I found a long time ago that looks like those Dymo label makers.  

ALSO - I hope you'll check out my previous blog post -- with my favorite Texas Cowgirls stamp -- that I made earlier today as I celebrated my 50th Blog Post! -- WHOO HOO! 

AND HERE'S SOME OTHER NEWS!  When I get to to post number 100 I will be posting an opportunity to win some Blog Candy -- so stay tuned and keep stopping by.  

Stampin' Hugs!
