And today it's *Cinco de Mayo*, a day which is celebrated in many countires and towns, and especially n Mexico, where Donna lives. She is holding a big earring giveaway today, so hop on over to her blog in sunny Mexico and read all about it here
Yesterday I had a lazy day, just made some tags and another mail art envelope.
First the envelope!
I very much enjoyed making this collage of printed and stamped elements, even if it means another trip to the post office....
I have made the tags using craft paper. Each tag has been distressed with TH inks in stormy skies, Victorian velvet, wild honey and forest moss. The backgrounds have then been stamped with script in forst green. Then I made a stamped collage on each one, three with a Paris theme and three for my home town, London. I have kept the embellishments to be a minimum this time, as they will all be sent with the post, but more about that tomorrow....Here they are.
I like the muted colours caused by the craft paper, which gives them a vintags look which reminds me of old coloured postcards. Hope you like them, too!
And Lenna has now put my mini-books for her swap on her swap blog, which you can find here
OK Ladies, that was it for today. Have a great day, take care, thanks for visiting and come back tomorrow because it will be surprise Friday on Bastelmania....
