Monday again....

Hi everybody! A lot of people here have the day off today, as tomorrow is a bank holiday, and this way it makes a nice, long weekend. I have been busy doing (more or less) nothing; spending time on my recliner and reading. But I did do a bit of fussy cutting, cutting out images for future projects. Then I threw some of them away when I crumpled up the cut outs instead of the waste - grrrr! But a few survived, so I was able to do my tags for Tag Tuesday and The Cheerful Stamp Pad. So here's my DT piece for *Tea Time with the Queen*



The Royal crest has been cut out of an old book-cover that was torn, and the queen cut out of a prospect. The teacup is from the Graphics Fairy. I rolled it round a glue tube and then stuck down just the edges,letting the middle bulge (like mine!) to make it dimensional. The tea-bag has been cut from a paper scrap, and the thread was taken from a real tea-bag! I wonder what the Queen would say to this? Probably, *We are not amused*.... You still have a week to enter the challenge if you would like to do so!

Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!

  19. Good to hear you've been resting, NOT good to hear you scrumpled up the wrong pile of paper, grrr!

    'Tea Time With The Queen' is such fun :o)

    I'm going to try and join in with Tag Tuesday this week (although it DEFINITELY won't be on Tuesday!), it's been weeks since I last joined in the tag fun.

  20. That is one great tag Valerie.
    You have a great sense of humor.
    Well I have done the same thing crumpling up the good pieces. AcK.
    Try ironing those pieces that are a little more crumpled, might help salvage them.
    Take care and stay creative.
