Funny how some things come together

isn't it?  Just got a new TH Visual Artistry stamp set at Hobby Lobby.  I didn't have several of the stamps so it was destined to go in my shopping basket. 

This week's challenge on Simon Says Stamp & Show blog was to create a piece of art inspired by none other than Lord Tim of Holtz.  I don't know what Tim had in mind when he included the city skyline but it sure looks like NYC to me.  The heart and banner just seemed to jump out and scream at me.  Typically I prefer to remember this day quietly and wouldn't be making art to mark the day the world changed.  However, once I saw the images together that's what happened.

The #8 tag was distressed with brown and black inks.  'Post card' and the city skyline were stamped in black archival, the stars in cobalt archival and the heart in crimson archival.  The sentiment (My Sentiments Exactly) was stamped in sepia archival.  I added the date with a black pen.

God bless America


  1. It's always said NY to me too, from the 'other side of the pond'. Your tag is just perfect for your sentiment.

  2. Love it and the message on it. This is totally cool and a great remembrance, something we seem to be forgetting.....

  3. wow....this is amazing!!
