Good morning! The 890c55cc-7bbe-4620-98f0-77bb.gif is in full swing! This week is the

LAD Blog Candy Bashand today is my turn to share a bit of Lizzie Anne lovin’. Both Zena and I are giving away blog candy. So, be sure to stop by her blog too! If you want to know who else will be giving away blog candy and which day…check out the Schedule of Events.

The blog candy I’m giving away is a surprise gift from Lizzie Anne Designs. If you want a chance at this fun gift, all you have to do is leave a comment telling me what your favorite summer dessert is. Mine is my mother’s Banana Split Cake. mmmm mmmm good! I thought I had the recipe, but can’t find it. I’ll get it from mom and share it with later. It is a layered delight of bananas, pineapple, cool whip, cream cheese, vanilla pudding all with a graham cracker base.

I went downstairs late last night with an idea for my card today. Needless to say, the minute I turned on the light everything changed. I ended up instead with this tag.

July 9 LAD Tag

The flowers in the background and the butterflies were stamped with a Gold Metallic Paint Dabber, and the different colors of Adirondack inks were wiped over the tags. The excess ink was wiped off with a towel, leaving the gold paint to shine through. The butterflies were cut out, wire added for their anntenae, and then they were raised on mounting tape. The sentiment was stamped on a scrap piece of the second tag. The edges of the main tag and the sentiment were sponged with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.
