Tag Tuesday and more happy mail

Hi everybody!
Just a quick post today, I have an infection, and need to get plenty of rest for a few days.
I got this wonderful postcard from Chrissie, who has been spending a week at Skegness, where I often spent weekends when I was studying near there. It looks just the same as always, and brought back some fond memories of meeting dates at the clock-tower! Thanks Chrissie!


This postcard is a painting which Alex made, and she sent me a copy for my 'arty kitchen'- it is really beautiful. Thanks a lot Alex!

And here is my tag for Tag Tuesday, where the theme this week is beads, buttons and bows.
I used some of the paper and embellies I got from Donna, and some beads which were in my parcel from Debbie recently. The ribbon for the bow is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, part of a win I had, and the skull, from Donna, is a button. 



Have a good day, take care, and thanks a lot for visiting!

  10. You are having a bad time lately health-wise. Hope the infection clears up quickly.
    Your lovely traditional version of a witch on a broomstick stands out so well against the pumpkin background, and I like the way she extends beyond the boundaries of the tag. I avoided the bottom of the tag after a quick look ....... I'm not frightened of skulls or toadstools but .........
