What a lovely day we've had on the island today .... the sun has been shining, the birds have been singing and I had a lovely morning with the house all to myself ...... just me and my Tim Tag!
No hunting around the old craft room needed either, I did pretty well on the ingredients list this time. The only things I didn't have were Frayed Burlap Distress Stain (why!!!), the metallic stickers and the trim ...... but I improvised and got there in the end.
Here's Tim's February Tag .......
and here's my take on it ......
I love the new Hearts stencil, and the new Random Quotes stamps are fab.
I'm still on the fence about my chalkboard effect though....... I gave up after 4 attempts and used the best of the bunch. I think I need to invest in some decent chalk if I'm going to give this another go (I said this last time we used this technique!)
I do love the glittered heart though and my little Idea-ology metal arrow
Instead of the Industrious Stickers and Borders I used Tim's Vintage Lace die and cut my own. I covered a piece of cardstock with some of the metal foil tape then die cut the border ......
I even managed to keep all the lacey bits in place ..... I wanted more of an embossed look rather it all being cut out.
To finish it all off I added the red seam binding .... trust me, it is red. I know it doesn't look it in the photo ... must be the sun ..... I'm not used to taking pictures when it's shining!
Well, that's me nearly done for the day. Just got to get the little man in bed ..... Yes I'm on Grandma duties again. Then it's time to settle down with a glass, or two, of something chilled (I've earned it this week!) and catch up on this week's TV.
I'll be back tomorrow with my card for this week's Merry Monday Challenge. Enjoy your evening.
Cheerio for now
