So I decided to play along in the card & tag challenge over at Joan's Gardens and doubled the tag creation for the challenge over on the Crafty Secrets Forum of SCS.
My tag can also double as a bookmarker. On the back is a To: & From: stamp to give your reader a new book ... then they can use it to mark their page. Please click on the image for a closer look if you'd like!
The stamp is from the Crafty Secrets Small Set called 'Story of Me' and the letters are from their 'Altered Alphabet booklet'. I used various Tim Holtz distress ink as well as Tim Holtz Tissue Tape (symphony) across the tag which was first covered with designer paper from the Prima 'Madeline' A4 pack.

* Leaves to create a vine on the lattice

The designer paper I used here is from the Basic Grey 'Sultry' pack. The lattice and basic vine were created using a Provo Craft 'floral borders' die. I've also punched out a few fronds with the MS frond punch, curled the leaves with a straight pair of tweezers and added to the vine. A couple little Prima flowers were added along with my Martha Stewart 'monarch' butterflies. I punched them from yellow cardstock then applied Versafine black ink directly to the paper.
Well, it's time for hubby to be home and I'm sure he'll be looking for dinner (which I haven't started yet!) ... so I'd better go for now and hope to see you again tomorrow.
Long Distance Hugs
