The postie came.....

Good morning you all, hope you all feel fit and well. Ask me how I feel when I have drunk my three cups of coffee, I'm still on number one....
Yesterday the postman came and brought me a big envelope from June of *Dezinaworld*. We were both in a RAK swap over at Tee's blog - Tee is a great gal who is organising fun swaps, so go over and have a look at what she's up to! And here are all the goodies I got in my envelope:

Stop drooling, you all, it's mine!! Thanks again June, and thanks Tee for organising theis great swap around the world!

Yesterday I had another Tag day, I made some challenge tags and some tags just for fun.
First I made 2 butterfly tags for the challenge at Tag Tuesday.

I have used white tags - ran out of cardboard! which have been distressed with TH inks, and then stamped with script and flourishes. I have decorated them with scrap images, flowers, butterflies, a little metal butterfly in addition on each one (which were in my parcel from June), some blue beading and ribbons to finish them off. I reall enjoyed making these pretty tags.

And then I made 2 bird tags for the *Blog Challenge garden*

The first tag is with Red Riding Hood and a tree and pretty birds from German Scrap. The background was distressed as for the butterfly tags. The second tag is cardboard again, got another 6 cardboard tags cut and peeled, and the bird here has been painted. I used some gold and purple paints that were left over, squished them together on a postcard, bubbled it dry and then die cut the bird, great fun! The background has been gessoed and distressed, and has some of the nice flowers and a tiny piece of the lace that June sent me.
And then I made a pink tag for *crazy Amigos* whose theme this week is pink.

And the last tag was just for fun, a boy out fishing.
So that was it for today! It was actually meant to be a short post but then.... Have a great day, take care of yourselves, and thanks a lot for visiting!

    I would love to sit and watch you create but you always amaze me with your level of productivity. Do you have any secrets to share for managing to achieve so much in a day - maybe you get up really early to create. Whatever you do, don't give up doing it because I love to see this abundance of art when I visit your Blog.
