Friday challenge...tab it with a twist


Well today's challenge at notimetostamp is to put a tab on it. Now I'm not very good at putting a lid on it but will try to do a tab and join in the fun. So I thought about this for awhile and remembered my buddy Ray at church turned 80 in December and he was gone to California and was coming back soon so.....a belated 80th. birthday for the old boy. Well when you think of being aged you ( at least me) think of maybe wine or vintage cars and since I gave up wine drinking for Lent, I went with an old car. I thought...old man, old car, but I have to tell you Ray is 80 chronilogically speaking but he's at least ten years younger in his body and brain. Really a nice old guy. An old car could be a clunker or a classic...I chose a classic. I used a car stamp from a gift from my friend Mary, it's an Angel Stamp Co. and they have some sssweet cars in the set. I put it on some patterned paper from K & Co. along with some brown cs., used my Nesties # something or other and made a receipe tab and stamped my congrats with a Flourishes stamp from their tag along set. So there you have it..oops I did put on some ribbon and one little blinger and fini. ( that's Frency y'know eh!) I think I need an intervention for my addiction to blingers. I realize this tab is not twisted but then I am so that's my play on the twisted tab...take it or leave it.
Happy weekend dear bloggers and let's hope we are not all snowed in. My brother on the west coast of Florida had snow this past week. Baby it's cold outside all over. Take care and enjoy.

That's some rig, Pat! What a blest guy to receive a classy birthday card
upon his return to town! I like your color combo choices and layering accents. Bling is good for good guys! Check your snow shovel, Pat. We have rounded off the sharp chisel edge. End of season sales may be our next haunting if we can hold out that long. Sunny after morning services. So welcome! at 18 degrees, yes positive 18.
Keep Looking UP!
