Disorderly Discoveries

 As the holidays approach and life speeds up even more than usual I can think of a number of people I could gift this bag to with a nice bottle of wine or sparkling grape juice to get a handle on things and realize that it's not a disaster if everything doesn't go perfect all the time.
I used a white glossy tag with some VersaMark ink and clear embossing powder, distress inks blended around, stamped my black sentiments, and then some gold swirlies, added the fou fou yarn and gold tassels, some Paper Studio stickers on the bag. Bingo! a nice little gift from the ♥.
My friend Annette came over and suggested that I enter this tag in the Gingersnap Creations challenge this week. It just happens to be to use VersaMark. I went over and looked around their site, very arty, and lots of talent. I will keep a close eye over there and might start entering more often. I have put them on my Wednesday side bar, so if you haven't found them hop over and check them out and check out Annette also, she's a visiting artist at Gingersnap Creations this month.
