Tiny tag is a stamp from MME, button and fine string from stash
Tuille from my lovely mate Jules, it was in a Birthday package...hate to use it really but thought it was perfect for this...and that little image peeping out behind the main image...(which should have been the ONLY image on my Tag )....is from a set I bought years ago when I started playing around at this 'HOBBY'....never used till now, don't even remember where it was from...anyway, made it into a little postcard type thingy.....think that it, I am happy though at getting to use some older stuff....not that I wouldn't buy the store out if I could...lol...but hey-ho...it's not so bad....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lets get on, this week at CraftyCatz our challenge is set by the lovely Carol, she wants Ribbons and Bows on your creations, easy peasy....

Our wonderful sponsors are StitchyBear and they are offering one lucky winner a $10 gift voucher....
we were very lucky to get some of there images to use, I'm afraid my printer is having a hissy fit, so I had to use a SC image, sorry..

As you can see I coloured the image with my trusted promarkers, painted the metal corner with white acrylic, ribbon , sentiment and  muslin from stash, heart die is a nellie run through swiss dot folder, large doily also stash and I used some viva decor pearls scattered around... the blues are clashing in the picture when in real life they look fine, don't know what happened there....
Thats about it ladies, will go look for a challenge or two to enter if I can find...I am scheduling this post as by now I should be on my way to the Doctors for yet more tests and BP, see what comes of it today and I have yet another chest infection so it's all fun and games here..lol...
