Happy Valentine's Day ........

and a happy Tuesday to you ......

Have you been playing along with the STAMPlorations girls and our LOVE TAGplorations event? We've had seven days of tag making fun ... all with a love or Valentine's theme.

It's the final day today and LOVE is definitely in the air ..... well it is Valentine's day after all!
Did your postie bring a sackful of cards this morning? ....... no, neither did mine.  I did get a single red rose though ..... from the waiter in the restaurant last night!!
We're in the middle of moving house so I suppose our Valentine's Day will have to wait!  Mind you after 29 years of being married ..... together for 31, everyday is Valentine's Day!!!

OK ....... that's the lovey dovey stuff over with ...... onto the important bit!
A cute little project for you today using a tag on a card ............

I cut my tag using the CUTplorations Luggage Tag thin metal die ....... and with the die still in place I added a touch of Distress ink to the centre

I then added a few little hearts onto the background using the cute little ARTplorations Hearts All Over mini stencil

I stamped a branch across the bottom of the tag and then added the birds from the STAMPlorations Small Birds set and coloured them using Distress Inks ....... cute little love birds

The words are from  Rosebuds for the With Love 

and A Full Heart for the Happy Valentine's Day

I added a pretty bow to the top of the tag using some vintage seam binding, coloured using the same Distress Inks that I used for the tag and a few dots with a silver gel pen to add a touch of sparkle

I then took a piece of white card, and used the mini Hearts All Over stencil again with some Festive Berries Distress ink to create the background .....

before adding my tag to the middle.

I hope you've enjoyed our TAG event ..... we certainly have.
There's still a little time left to play along ...... commenting and the Linky button are open until the end of today.

Thanks for popping by ...... have a lovely Valentine's Day.

I'd better get back to the packing ....... why do we have so much stuff!!!
We've not done too badly though over the last few days, everything's nearly done at this end ..... and all the furniture goes on Thursday.  There's quite a bit been unpacked at the other end too .... kitchen stuff mainly and the garage is filling up nicely! My new craft room is a bit of a mess though ........ I can't wait to get in there and get it all sorted. Hopefully it won't take too long.

Cheerio until next time ....
