Tag you're it......

a bit of relaxation after a hectic week of visitors, including some very special visitors...our daughter  and 3 grandaughters meaning we could get our 6 grandchildren (aged 4 - 14yrs) all under one roof for sleepovers, meals, fun.........they all get on so well together too! Happy days!!

As well as making cards I've also been trying to finish a king size quilt for my daughter and am half way through another for my eldest pale pinks and greys. And today I was asked by the 12yr old ....Grandma these jeans don't fit very well can you make them into a skirt...OK ! One happy young lady later.....

Over at aaa cards I found a tag challenge....interesting, goes,  this is what I came up with.  A white on white card with vellum leaves with a script die cut silver hello on the vellum tag which I embossed with a word script folder to add some dimension. I didn't want to add any ribbon twine etc so I carefully hooked the tag over one of the leaves...and added a few.sequins and a crystal.

It did cross my mind that this would make a lovely simple Christmas card with maybe the addition of a tiny red bird or snowflakes on the tag or a leaf....which made me search for and order a die set of tiny resting birds and I already have a 'merry' script die...mmmm maybe my Christmas cards are sorted watch this space!
