Tag Tuesday and More....

Good morning you all! It's still cold here, just 2°, and the field outside is white with frost again. But they keep promising us in the TV that spring is on its way - I'm wondering which way it's on!? But we are enjoying nice sunrises, and there's no rain or fog....


For my *Tag Tuesday* Tag I have once again used a Beatrix Potter figure, as the theme this week is geese, ducks etc, and the first one I thought of was Jemima Puddleduck, the poor, rather stupid ducky, of whom the clever fox wants to take advantage. For the background of the tag I have sponged ink through a tree template to create the woods where the fox had his hut. I have added a few flower rub-ons, and some matching ribbon and lace. The quote has been taken directly from the Jemima Puddleduck story.


The altered postcard has been made using some blended papers, gesso, and a gel-transfer. I have forgotten from whom the quote is, sorry!


The little notebook has been made using the TH cabinet card die. I folded the cardboard so that it didn't get cut on the folded side to make the front and back covers in one piece. The front cover has been inked with Victorian velvet using some sequin waste. I used one of the images I got from Von, adding some lace, a flower and a decorative pin. Inside there are 16 pages for notes.



So, that's all for today. Have a great day, take care, and thanks for dropping in!
