S for Sandra?

 Time again for another challenge over at Tag Tuesday and this time around I am hosting and have chosen the theme "Use the First Letter of Your First Name"

I have created 2 Tags using the letter of my first name...Sandra = S

My first tag is a Sewing theme, I rubber stamped the images and added them to my tag. 

The tag was cover in some instructions paper from a vintage pattern, which had aged nicely.

For my 2nd Tag I created this one Digitally, not the best at digital stuff, but I think this one turned out quite well.
I've named it Snow Queen.

The background of this tag I used a photo of a snowy hedgerow that I tweaked digitally.
Then I added the Snow Queen, a free image shared by June Macfarlene. She has a page on facebook where she often share images to use for free.

I hope there will be many entries for this challenge, it will be interesting to see what them you choose with your letter.
You can find the challenge here at TAG TUESDAY
Have fun everyone...xx

Anything Goes Tag

 Just dropping by to share my Anything Goes Tag for Tag Tuesday

The theme this time around was chosen by our lovely boss lady Valerie.

I'm just skidding in towards the end of the challenge, I just don't know where the time has gone, although to be honest I have been out and about a bit more recently.

I've opted for a narrow Tag that I collaged with different scraps, added a stamp, label and this fab passport style photo.

There is still time to enter this challenge if you want to play along.

Windows, Doors & Arches

 Good Morning to those that have dropped by, as always it's so nice to get visitors to my blog.

My post this time is to share my Tag with you.

The theme was chosen by teamie Wendy over at Tag Tuesday, Windows, Doors, Arches.

I love the theme, so I was pretty determined to make a Tag, even though I'm not feeling 100% well just yet, getting there though after being in hospital and diagnosed with a heart condition.

I used a large white tag that I coloured using distress ink.
The Door/Arch stamp was actually one that was given to me by a friend, she was having a de-stash, unfortunately there was no packaging with it and she couldn't remember who it is made by, but it is perfect for Wendy's theme.

I stamped the door and surrounding arches and bricks and coloured them in, from my own stash I found a stamp for the greenery and added some red dots for flowers.
The 2 girls are from Tim Holtz, I coloured them slightly to make them stand a bit more.
Do pop over and join in the challenge if you can.

Black Colour Option

 I was tidying an area of my craft room when I came across a canvas board. I had cast it aside after making a mistake with it, but it was too good to throw away.

The board measures 5"x 7". I had previously added texture to it and I had painted it in several shades of green.

So all I did was to paint the whole piece black to tie in with this months colour option.

I gradually built the canvas up using burlap, pieces of distress papers and one of Tim Holtz relatives. I love the image of this young boy.

I finished the canvas by adding clips, a piece of a black leather belt and a couple of buttons.
