Post Surprises and a Tag

This week I have had 3 nice surprises in the post, from Donna, Katie and Narda, who often sends such good jokes.
Donna sent me some Valentine images and embellies, packed in a beautiful mail-art envelope. The images are especially welcome just now, as my printer is back home....One of the images has been used for my Tag Tuesday Tag.

The postcard is from katie

Here is my surprise from Narda, lots of bling, and two more cows for my collection:

And here is the tag I made for Tag Tuesday. I painted the tag with black acrylic paint, before adding the image from Donna, some lace, beads and flowers.

Yesterday was the coldest day we have had since thirty years. I had to go out to have some copies made and post a letter, but I was glad to get back here again. In the evening it started to snow, and now everything is white. It's supposed to be getting a bit warmer tomorrow, and then colder again on Thursday, sounds great!

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


  1. How lovely for you to receive those lovely gifts - I'm sure you'll make great use of all the materials, and Katie's postcard is weird and wonderful!

    Your tag is very effective having the black background, it really makes it 'pop'.

    Wrap up warm. We're forecast more snow today and over the next few days :o(


  2. Hi

  3. Always great fun to have a new influx of goodies. Love the BLING! Katie knows no bounds in the card department and they are always incredibly wild and wonderful. LOVE your tag - the little flowers at the bottom are perfect. From reports here, the whole of Europe is in the deep freeze .. what's going on over there? Stay warm and enjoy your new toys. hugs, Donna
