WHAT…no flowers??????

haha!  Yep that is what i have created for the challenge over at OUR CREATIVE CORNER cos that’s what they wanted. This is also for RAISE THE BAR as anything goes with them this week Smile

For this challenge i created a card and co-ordinating tag!! (Yeah i know…i NEVER make tags…lol) This is about to change though. It’s something that i never create but yet it’s something that we can always use, plus sometimes a tag would be perfect to create when you want to enter a certain challenge etc but don’t have the time to create a card.

The manilla tags on my creations i put together a good few weeks ago. I just got a load of blank tags and then stamped them all with the oh so gorgeous MME doily stamp set that i have, stamping in all different colours. Then i used sentiments from papertrey’s ‘Love lives here’ set to stamp sentiments on top. Inked up the edges and then job done. They were then put away till i needed them. I think i did about 20 or so. I sometimes like to sit and just ‘play’ just creating embellies n such rather than creating finished cards etc.

Here ya can see me blank tags that i’ve cut ready and waiting to be prettied up…lol


Papers : Melissa Frances / 5th avenue

A sheet of vintage sheet music, vintage buttons,

Stamps by papertrey and my minds eye.

Simply gorgeous! I've had a little note to me on my desk for almost a week with 'Melissa Frances papers' written on. Don't mean my results will be like yours, but it's a start - truly fabulous!! Di xx
