Happy Monday, everyone! Today, we're celebrating the birthday of one of the most inspiring people in the crafting universe: Mr. Tim Holtz, of course! For so many of us, Tim's products and instruction have opened a whole world of creativity and joy. He's brilliantly talented, and beside that, he's an incredibly kind and generous person.
As hostess of the Tim Holtz Birthday Card Challenge, I've absolutely been blown away by the stunning art the participants have been uploading these past ten days. I've seen such beauty and ingenuity, and am just delighted that so many people have joined in! I know a lot of you have sent or will be sending your creations to Tim, and I'm delighted to know that this guy who gives so much of himself is going to be receiving such a wonderful tribute from his fans. Great job, everyone! (And if you haven't joined in yet, there's still time-- see below!)
Oh, and here's my own birthday card for Tim:
It's a little Vintage Valise card made from Grungeboard. There are several techniques from the Compendium of Curiosities books here: Inked Grunge, Rusted Grunge and Alcohol Ink Agate.
The little latch at the top opens, and inside is a birthday wish and an elastic Trimmings strap that will hold a handwritten greeting.
Don't forget: If you haven't uploaded your submission for the Tim Holtz Birthday Card Challenge yet, you can do so until 11:59 MST tonight and be eligible to win the awesome embroidered apron, autographed just for you by Tim and Mario! Click here for the details and to add your link!
Thanks everyone! Have an awesome day. And...
Happy Birthday, Tim!!!
