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!

    '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.

  21. Fantastic creation, Valerie!
    Love everything about it :]
