Tag Tuesday Tag

Hi you all. It's Tag Tuesday again, and the theme this week is gardening and everything related to it. I am just as good at gardening as at all other household tasks; all I know about this theme is that gardens should have flowers and plants in them, and that they attract bees and butterflies and birds etc. So, I have made 2 tags with flowers and bees. For both tags I have used some scraps of Anna Griffin paper mounted onto card from an old calendar. The first one has been made with a gel image transfer.

Thanks to all who sent hugs yesterday, I really need them just now.
Have a good day you all, take care and thanks for visiting!


  1. Lovely tags. I have no idea how you make an image transfer, but I love the faded look it gives! Have a good day, hugs, Sarah

  2. Gorgeous tags Valerie.
    More hugs xx

  3. Such gorgeousness, Valerie!

  4. Hi Valerie
    I am sorry I have not been over to visit but family matters are occupying my energy.
    Snatching some time to visit friends and see what art they have been creating.
    Those tags bring summer into the home, I like the addition of the flowers.
    Thanks for always taking the time to visit and comment even when I am unable to come and visit you.

  5. These are just gorgeous Valerie and love the pretty summery colours. Necessary today as we keep having heavy rain showers and I'm hoping the sunshine of the weekend soon comes back.
    Hope you're feeling a bit more cheerful today.
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  6. I just love the sentiments on these! great tags!

  7. dear Val,
    Glorious tags today...love the sentiment on the pink one ...how true. take care, gerri

  8. Lovely tags Valerie, lovely sentiments to go with them too! I must admit I am a terrible gardener, I can't stand bugs and I am frightened by most of them, lol. Glad today is better, take care. ~Diane

  9. Love the words you added to the beautiful tags, both make me want to get out in the garden. No chance here, as its wall to wall rain yet again.

  10. Hi Valerie. Gorgeous tags. Sending more hugs so that you have some in reserve :)
    Regards Florence xx

  11. Oh Val, gorgeous tags once again. I love seeing your interpretations. If you want to garden you can always come and help me....LOL we are in the thick of it now and so are the biting black flies. ACK...
    Take care and thanks for your lovely comments, they do not go unnoticed.

  12. Oh!.. MORE gardening! I say this because the women's group at my church was having a big meeting and guest speaker there to talk all about gardening! I don't have a 2" patch of dirt to my name to garden on, so I have to just settle for my little window garden. In fact, I'm seriously considering I may have to HANG that begonia in the window, because there's no room on the sill! Still I love to garden, if I could. I miss growing my own tomatoes... And your cute little Bumblebee tags are certainly inspiring! They're really beautiful, Valerie! I just recently found out I can participate now!!.. So I'll see what I can put together sometime soon for this week's challenge!.. Have a great day! ((hugs)) ~tina

  13. Oh what a glorious thing to be, a healthy grown up busy, busy bee ... remember that song? Super tags Valerie. Don't know where today has gone - see you tomorrow! xx

  14. WOW! What beautiful tags! Love my 2 perennial flower beds :) I always buy some annuals to scatter in the beds :)

  15. lovely springtime garden tags Valerie, and sending more hugs to you!

  17. These are fabulous Valerie, I love that image transfer, and the sentiment made me smile. I hope your foot is getting better x

  18. Your tags are wonderful.. I always love seeing what you create!!


  19. Valerie, I'm sorry you don't have a little garden to dig in the dirt and hope for flowers to grow. It is great therapy and relieves stress; however, yesterday I overdid it so took it easy today.

    Your tags are certainly an expression of summer and all of the colors we see in the flowers.

    Take care of that foot.


  20. WOW!!!
