Phew! That was close!

Happy weekend folks,

I see I have another new follower ........ we're getting closer to that 200 Giveaway!  Thank you so much for taking the time to visit, it is nice to have you on board.

Guess what ..... it's the last day of February ...... it must be tag time!!!

I'm on the last minute as usual ..... no excuses except it's been a bit of a busy week.  Good busy though ..... I've been out to lunch twice (I could get used to that!!)  I think I've found a new sofa that I like the look of, just need to see if it will fit in the new house!  And had a successful trip to the shops this morning ..... even though I did end up getting soaked in the rain!!
There's not much packing been done though .... and it's only 3 weeks to go before we get the keys to the new place ..... eeek!!!

I won't go in to all the details of how I made my tag ...... Tim has a great tutorial over on his Blog. Easy to follow step by steps, on all the various techniques he's used to create this month's fabulous tag.

Here's my version ..... not exactly the same

The collage background was done using left over pieces of paper from the Menagerie Paper Pad ......

I added a heart cut from chipboard and glitter card ..... no room to get the sewing machine out!!!

I love these metal arrows .... this is my last one (must remember to re-stock with those!)

And how cute are these little heart charms ...... attached using some coloured wire to match the sparkly heart

I finished off with a touch of lace, and something else that's my last one .... the word band (time to do a  stock take of my Idea-ology stash I think!)

And that's February's tag done .... just in time!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.

Next week's going to be a busy one ...... I need to get all my crafty stuff done at the beginning of the week, along with all the boring stuff (housework!).  I've got lunch out and a craft workshop on Wednesday, meal out with hubby on Wednesday evening, then on Thursday ..... have I mentioned it's my birthday!?! ...... I'm off on a craft retreat for the weekend, with my bestest craft buddies.  It's my first trip of the year off the island, and I can't wait ...... my bags are already packed!

But before all that my boys in blue are playing tomorrow ...... it's the League Cup Final .... Chelsea v Tottenham.  So ..... it's Sunday lunch at ours, a quick trip round to see the new house to measure up for a few things, and then it's time to settle down and watch the match.  Come on Chelsea!!!

Cheerio until next time

I really like your take on Tim's tag...the pops of red with the glittered heart and the red wire really set this apart from the others! Love it!

You are one busy girl!! Sounds like you're having lots of fun.

LOVE your tag. The metal arrow with the dangling heart charm and the metal band with sentiment are so cool, along with your glitter heart over the frame. But it's the background that really intrigued me, Linda. Piecing together bits of paper to make a collage is so creative ... it turned out amazing. I hope to give this a try! Thanks for the inspiration. Loll xx
