Tag Tuesday

Hi everybody! Today is tag Tuesday again, but my tag is not yet finished. Actually, I haven't started, but hope to have it done for tomorrow. I tried to rest yesterday. That means, I did do some clearing up, but no furniture moving or heavy work, just little things, like clearing out my wardrobe. Now I have 2 big bags to take to the recycling yard....
I had a nice surprise yesterday, a beautiful card from Yvonne


Thank you so much for sending such a beautiful card, and for the lovely vintage images and sentiments which came with it!

And I made an easel-card for a friend whose birthday is this week. The background has been painted with layers of acrylic paint. The picture is a bit fuzzy, but by the time I'd noticed it, it was too dark to take a new one....


Have a good day you all, take care and thanks for visiting!
