Tag Tuesday

Hi everybody! The theme this week at Tag Tuesday is  'Swimming', and that includes everything  that has something to do with it. My first tag is a little man who was determined to fill his pool although his Mum had said no! The photo has been backed with some of my hand-painted papers, and I added some pirate accessories, and Noah's Ark, which I found in my button box.



I love this vintage image. I have mounted it onto a distressed and painted cardboard tag, cut in the shape of a beach hut. The shabby bow is a scrap of cotton, and the sun is a yellow daisy. I have added gold glass-glitter sand and some shells.

I discovered these 2 buxom wenches in their jazzy swim-suits, and had to put them on a tag. The tag is a piece of a cornflakes box, covered with some of the blue cotton I used for the bow in the tag above. I fussy cut the images and then rolled them round a pencil to make them stand out before fixing them with foam squares. I wonder what they won those cups for??


 And these are some mini-flip-flops, which we all need for the beach and swimming....


I made this card for my DT piece at 'The Cheerful Stamp-Pad', using the lovely silhouette from Floppy Latte Digitals, *Music of Love*. I have printed the image onto some glossy paper, over-stamped it with  music notes (LaBlanche) and distressed the background in gradient colours. I have kept the embellishments simple, just a ribbon and a small flower with liquid pearls at the centre. The text is mounted inside the card as easel-stopper.



Here's wishing you all a good day. Take care, have fun, and thanks for coming by!

  15. Well you have been rather busy, what a wonderful assortment ! That cheeky chappie on the first one made me laugh, the two buxom bathing beauties most probably won the cups for looking the least like women, love the cool socks !. Great new look for your blog Valerie !

    Marie R & B send their regards.

  20. You've been busy, as usual Valerie! I particularly like your two cup winners - I think they won a prize for Best Swimming outfits, don't you? Are they boots or socks she's wearing?!
