Double Tuesday

Hi Everybody!

Happy Tuesday!

Today is double Tuesday, which means a new challenge at TIOT and a new theme at Tag Tuesday.

At TIOT our new theme is 'Pearls for Girls' - now let your imagination run wild and make some pretty, pearly, feminine projects - you have 2 weeks to join in, and all sorts of projects are allowed.
 For TIOT I made a 6" card with loads of glitter, bling, pearls and feathers.
The image is a vintage coca cola image, matted with some lavender card and a glittered transparent foil mat. I added a row of pearls along the bottom, feathers to her hat, and some clear gemstones to the roses and her necklace. 

Our theme at Tag Tuesday is 'anything but paper'. I used a strip of my antique linen - my neighbour says it looks like something from a mummy's tomb! After fringing the outer edges I used my new sewing machine to decorate them.I used Dina Wakley's moon faces again, stenciled with Viva-color Rust. Her hair has been made from fibres, and I added a button for decoration - that was it.

And just a few photos from today, from my balcony and my walk along the Rhine.
We had 2 hours of sunshine this morning, and then it rained and rained....

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


  1. Cute pearly card and tag. Glad you got at least some sunshine!

  2. WOW... die Karte ist mehr als exclusiv und elegant Valerie! Und das Leinentag ist fast ein Kontrast dazu .... und auch wunderwunderschön!
    Hast eben jeden Stil drauf Du Profi!
    Gut dass Du die Sonne ein wenig nutzen konntest gestern und uns mit so schönen Fotos verwöhnst!

  3. A wonderful tag, very girly-pearly, and a fantastic and arty tag - great stuff. Great photos as well, thanks! Have a nice day, hugs, Sarah

  4. die haare zu den dina wakley Gesichtern sind der hit!! muss ich mir merken...
    und offensichtlich hast du die sonne weitergeschickt zu uns, gestern war es hier mal wieder unbegreiflich mies, aber heute scheint es schön zu werden...

  5. Stunning card Valerie with great use of the beautiful pearls. Clever tag with wonderful ideas for the old cloth and the stencil. I never would have thought to use the wonderful fringe for hair.

    Nice that you had a little sun and that you took the photographs when it was bright. I hope the weather is better for you today. Dentist day for me again :(

    Love Chrissie xx

  13. Your TIOT piece is very beautiful Valerie, and I do like your simple tag {{hugs}} x

  14. Lovely vintage looking coca cola piece! It is a real challenge to create with anything but paper and you rose to that challenge masterfully, too! Well, rain, rain, rain, is better than the snow, sleet, snow (yes again) that is heading our way later today.

  15. Your anything but paper tag turned out splendidly and you've created a lovely feminine pearl themed piece too!
    I am imagining how happy all the seeds and plants are getting so much moisture...
    Spring is coming :-)

  16. Lovely pieces, both of them. Love the red fiber hair and the glittered frame looks spectacular! ~Diane

  17. I love pearls and I SO love how you made a hat out of that feather. That was sheer genius.

  18. Wow! What an incredible post today! Both makes are stunning. Your card is wonderful and I love her necklace.
    Today has been a special day in the United States. I just finished watching PM Netanyahu speak before congress. He is an outstanding leader and I pray he can lead us all through these precarious times.
