trisha too: last minute 4th of July decorating, and some good news

I had already altered some large canning jars, which were used as candle holders for a Rustic Elegant style wedding reception, but wanted something for our Independence Day celebration.  So I pulled out all my favorite Rogue background stamps and . . .
The tag in the foreground is stamped with the Almanac background the Relish Reading set.
. . . stamped all over the fronts and backs of a bunch of manilla tags.  Which was quite easy to do, since the backgrounds are a generous over-5 inches by 4 inches--makes for some NICE stamping:

(You have to admit, those really ARE yummy backgrounds!)

Then, I added a simple collage image and some red/white/blue trim, and tied the tag to the
already-altered canning jar:

Now the altered-altered jar is going to hold wildflowers and a flag.
You can tell I tied the patriotic trim right over that burlap, jute, and key embellishment--
move it on over, Rustic Elegant wedding, it's time for some 4th of July fireworks!

Here's the good news:  the Rogue backgrounds are now available as SINGLES.
So yes, you can have them ALL.  And trust me, you will want them all.

Happy 4th of  July!  (Hey, even if you're not from the US, you can still have a happy 4th of July, right?)
