Tag Tuesday and Happy Mail

Wow! Today I have managed to get my tag for Tag Tuesday posted promptly on Tuesday, so I'm pleased about that. Our theme is 'winter landscape'. I wanted to keep it simple, as my fingers are still leading their own lives, so  I used a photo I took in 2010. It shows the pathway leading along the remains of the old wall, parallel to the Rhine, which used to be part of the town's defenses in the old days. I just added the vintage Santa image, and matted it onto some blue miri card and silver card. The beads are some of those I made last year, and the silver embellishment was sent by a crafty friend, as were the pretty fibres.



I received this pretty card from Chrissie, who was so kind to send me get well wishes. Thanks a lot Chrissie, and all the others who have sent post and mails.


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