Tag(s) Tuesday

Hi everybody, it's another Tag Day here. Our theme over at Tag Tuesday is 'Clocks', a theme I like. I started making a tag, and before I knew what had happened, my tag had turned into a clock, which is now ticking away merrily on my kitchen wall. I now have a whole battery of clocks there. (No pun intended!) I cut a tag using TH's Cabinet card day, embossed it in a TH texture fade folder, distressed it, and then mounted it onto an old calendar page, which I cut just a tiny bit bigger than the cabinet card to give it a frame. Then I added one of my 1€ clockworks,  a hanger, some wings and a quote,and that was it!



And as the weather was very reminiscent of Autumn today, with rapid changes from sun to rain to wind to thunder and lightning and then back again, I made some more Autumn tags. For both tags I have used TH's branch tree, and the background has been sponged with various DIs through a CWS stencil. Here I added some deer with a rub on (which needed an enormous effort till it had rubbed off the paper and onto the tag!), and the tree has been distressed and then embossed with hologram EP





I am linking to Simon Says Stamp and Show 'For the Love of Sparkle'

While making the second one I remembered that song 'Tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree', so I did just that. The hedgehog seems to have found a big stash of berries, too. Both trees have been cut from corrugated card from an old box.



Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks for coming by!

    Terrible weather here both yesterday and today - blowing a gale and tons of heavy rain but at least no flooding here.
