And still more tags....

Hi you all. It's still very cold here, although the snow has almost disappeared. Hope you are all managing to keep warm - or cool - wherever you are!

The first tag today is for the challenge at Out of a Hat Creations, where the ladies would like to see three textures. I have used corrugated card, partly peeled, gessoed and painted- the card is my fave texture just now! I added a piece of old book paper, and a strip if card into which I have embossed three different textures using Utee.  Added the flowers and jute as embellishments, tied it up with a piece of string, and that was it.



That blue thumb belongs to me!

The second tag is one for Valentine. Once again I have used corrugated card, my script stamp, lace and scraps, half of a TH branch tree,  an image from a postage sheet from Gecko Galz, and a few embellies from my bit box.





Tag Number 3 is my Tag Tuesday 'F' tag. I know a lot of words beginning with 'F', but some are not suitable for making into tags....so I chose fingers as my word:




No, they are neither my fingers nor my nails!

That's all for today, take care, and thanks for coming by!

  2. You are funny about the "F" words--fingers are just perfect! I have to say again how much I really like the cardboard tag--you make it look and sound so easy! Raining and warmer here today so some of the snow is disappearing!

  7. What gorgeous tags Valerie!! You're ahead with your F tag - those fingers are wonderful, so real looking. I've barely even thought about what to do this week. I've been poorly with the dreaded flu. Oh, there's an F we can all do without huh!? Haha.
    Have a good week :0) Mo

  19. HI Valerie
    Thank You for all the visits to my blog and your lovely comments. I really appreciate you doing so especially when I have been absent from blogland due to illness.
    Love the use of the Gecko Galz image, so adorable and the first tag, gorgeous vintage beauty set against the corrugated card and then the F tag - you made me chuckle with your naughty comment lol. Great use of the image of the fingers.
    Wishes

  21. Well, I can think of an 'F' - fish and chips! I was up at the children's hospital this afternoon making Valentine's cards and I picked up fish and chips on the way home for tea. Your tags are gorgeous, I do love the corrugated card and all the beautiful embellies. Xx
