Tag Tuesday Tag and more....

I have a mixed bag to show you today. My Tag Tuesday tag is a day late. This time we are making alphabet tags for the first half of the year. My lady is holding a card which says - 'A is for adventure - dare to be different!'


I had a go at making postcards from paint-chip cards. I am not so sure if I like them or not, but it's always worth trying. 
For the first one I just used a die-cut word and a strip of paper lace from a Martha Stewart punch, and clear varnished it. It's a bit too minimalist for my taste!



I like this one better, especially the quote from Mahatma Gandhi.



Here's wishing you all a great day, take care, have fun and thanks for visiting!

  7. All wonderful , it is a change to be minimal but it does make you focus on the true meaning of the word.

  9. Hi Valerie. Hope you are doing well. Excellent tags and that quote from Gandhi goes straight to the heart. It sounds like my husband who doesn't speak much but when he does it is from the heart. Love it! Thanks and now it's time for coffee...or tea.:)
