This and that....

I had a nice relaxing day yesterday. Saturdays there are usually no treatments, but I just had one - cupping and then a back massage, very pleasant. Then one of the ladies here had baked a cheese cake, and we sat in the common room, eating indecently large pieces of cheese cake and drinking coffee. Auntie Cissie, if you are reading this, sorry, the invitation came as a surprise, so I didn't have time to ask you over! When I am back home, I will make a giant cheese cake, and then you can pop over with Jason and we'll party!!

After that, I needed to work off some calories, so I made some tags and cards. I'm just showing you the tags today, as my internet stick SUCKS just now, and is taking ages to do anything! The first one has been made with a scrap of left-over cardstock, which has been randomly stamped with script and some flourishes, before adding the image, which is from Crafty Secrets. I just added the flowers and the ribbon.

The second one has been cut from white card which has been distressed with wild honey, and then stamped with the same flourishes and script. I added some flowers cut from a prospect, the image is from Crafty Secrets again, the sunflower from my stash, and the bee is a LaBlanche stamp, decorated with some stickles. I used some honey coloured dew-drops to make the flower-centres.

The third one has been made with a manila tag, the background has been stamped like the other two, before adding some flower rub-ons from LaBlanche and an image fussy cut from a picture which was flying around in my stash. The first and last tags were finished off with some scraps of lace.





Have a good Sunday you all, take care, keep warm and have fun. Thanks for visiting!

  22. I am liking that bee stamp! It's a rather large bee and IRL I am so afraid of bees and other flying things with stingers - real or imagined stingers! Darn it all Valerie every time I visit you are eating cheesecake or some other yummy sounding cake. I am already too round, have no will power. Well it is midnight almost so I will just go to bed and dream about your lovely cakes! Hugs,
