diva and a tribute

i decided to combine challenges this week and to play in an "anything goes" challenge at the art by miran challenge blog  as well as with our challenge.  i treated myself to a new digital stamp at the art by miran shop specifically choosing a stamp to match our "diva" challenge.

love that pink feather boa!  i colored this image with pencils, outlined her and fussy cut her.  the background papers on the tag are from an old alphastamps kit.  the dragonfly is from eyelet outlet and the rest are items from my stash.

i love that our tag tuesday prompt is "diva" on january 13 which is my late grandmother's birthday.  she was a true diva in the best possible way!  so this is a tribute to her as well.  she could sing like a bird, decorate a home on a dime, she sewed her own clothes, made hats and all of it was super fabulous. no pattern required and almost always recycled/upcycled before upcycling was invented! she had deep, rich spiritual faith and was a guide to all our family.  and she had eye-stopping style even into her 90s.  she has been gone now three years.  here she is at 90:

i miss her but seek to carry her creative and loving spirit wherever i go.  happy birthday Dear.
happy week; love to all.


  1. Lovely tag, and I can hardly believe that picture of your Gran at 90, she hardly looks 60.

  2. Wonderful post, love the tag, and it is a great tribute to your wonderful Grandma! Thanks for sharing this very special diva with us! Hugs, Valerie

  3. Wonderful that your tag is a tribute to your gran. It is very beautiful

    Love Chrissie

  4. What a handsome woman and she looks no where near 90 in that photo!
    What a fabulous tribute you wonderful tag is, I bet she would have just loved it. :o))

  5. What a lovely tribute to your grandmother! She looked amazing! My Granny was a bit of a diva too! She died at the age of 100! Your tag is lovely.
