Day late Grungy Monday!

Ok so the preparations for the fair are going fairly well but I just had to take a little break from the intense owl making! It's amazing just how much work it takes to get ready for a fair!! Who Knew!
Still it's all an experience and all part of my journey.
Anyways, enough with my waffle, what I was trying to get at is I took time out yesterday to have a little skype session with Ali and decided to play along with Grungy Monday as I had missed last weeks being so busy and all!
I had so much fun with Tim's technique I actually made a grand total of 4 cards, but today I'll be sharing the first one I made
I used the gorgeous 'agapanthus long' stamp from stampendous, and as I don't own any of the adirondack dye ink pads I used my memento's and they worked brilliantly.
I also used a penny black butterfly and one of Tim's sayings.
I'll blog the rest of my cards throughout the week.
Right back to the grindstone for me!
Stay Inky

Wow, Minxy, what a gorgeous burst of springtime! The watercolor stamping looks fabulous-- all those colors together just make my heart happy! Great choice for the sentiment, too!

Hang in there, busy lady-- all your hard work will be SO worth it!!!
