Happy Birthday, A Blog Named Hero!

Hello Friends!

It's my turn for the Timeless Twine + A Blog Named Hero collaboration today! Monday was for Timeless Twine and today is for A Blog Named Hero (keeping that all straight was humorous! Like when it occurred to me that I needed to make 2 projects, doh!).

~This is a gift bag! I thought it was a fun way to jazz up a little gift. 

~One of my favorite Timeless Twine colors is Aqua Delight. It's SO pretty.

~The sentiment is from the Hero Arts set, "Year Round Sentiments" (which also happens to be an Operation Write Home set!).

~I also used some new embossing powder I picked up. It's Espresso by Ranger. LOVE! And of course some Distress Ink for the tag (which has some cool texture because of water but you'll just have to close your eyes and imagine because you can't see it in the photo. *sigh*).

There's more twiney-stampy fun over at A Blog Named Hero! And info on how to enter for a prize! Thanks for stopping by!

OK, the embossing is kind of perfect and gorgeous (especially from someone who once told me that black embossing powder is of the devil, hee hee).
