Tag Tuesday and T stands for Tuesday

Hi Everybody!

We were delighted to see so many people joining
in last week at Tag Tuesday,, and Karen from Lunagirl
has chosen the winner of the image sheet,
but you will need to go to the TT blog to learn more....
On Tuesday we are starting our new challenge there
hosted by our lovely Wendy, who chose the theme:

🐩Birds and Nests🐩

As usual, you have 2 weeks to link your tag, and tags of all
formats are welcome.

I made a 10"mixed media tag, using a paper napkin
over partly peeled corrugated card:

It started like this:

Then I sewed the tag to a coordinating backing:

The nest was made from some Xmas band twisted
together and with added twigs. The eggs are art stones.
I glued it all with silicone glue:

I painted them with water-colours and glazed them:

I added more twigs:

The ticket and sentiment are stamps from Tim Holtz:

Today is Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so a big 
welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T Gang.
No cake again, sorry, I'm just knocked out,
but I made a coffee tag using a napkin and some
coffee dyed lace, all sewed together again:

Spring is springing everywhere:

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


  1. Both tags are lovely, love the sweet nest on the first one, but I'm sure the coffee one is your fave! The photos are wonderful as always, lovely to see the spring flowers, we are enjoying them here, too. Have a good evening and look after yourself, hugs, Sarah

  2. Hi Valerie - what a lovely post. Your tags are beautiful...especially the first one with Blue Tits, that's really gorgeous - it was brilliant the way you created the nest and eggs.
    Lovely flowers too - have a great evening...

  24. I love both the tags -all that texture and detail! And signs of Spring are so welcome :) Happy T Tuesday

  25. Happy T day Valerie!!! I just LOVE both your tags!! I love how you combine paper and sewing.. I have seen that before but i have never tried it. You make it look beautiful! Did you know that Daffodils are toxic? Even to other plants.. I picked a few Daffodils last week before the snow and stuck them in a vase with other flowers and they quickly killed the other flowers... I see you put yours in a vase by themselves so maybe you already know that :) Hugs! deb

    Have a great weekend,
