tag on my memories

I make this tag this morning in no time at all (don't say you can tell lol). I missed joining in both these challenges last week and was determined to get something made this week. I used a butterfly stamp from qvc I have had for years, a bird stamp from Laura Ashley and a piece of my late Mum's old dictionary.

I used the memory dictionary bit over stamped with the butterfly stamp and stamped again and cut and coloured and glittered then stuck on top so the wings stand proud. I stamped the bird stamp around the edges. If you get a 10 minute break today then have a go at a tag, they are great fun, might get another one done later. The sun is shining here at the moment so I'm off to walk wee Squirt. Have a nice day everyone.

1. Tag You're It - a butterfly's kiss

2. Tuesday Taggers - memories (they are sponsored by The Craft Barn this week)

3. Incy Wincy - anything goes

Hi there Pinky this is fantastic. It looks like you have spent ages on it xxx I love the use of the dictionary and the orange is wonderful too. Sorry I am a bit of a colour addict so I tend to leave comments on colour all the time. Thanks for joining us this week at Tag You're itxxx Hugs Pascale

Wonderful Pinky!! I hope you scanned that dictionary piece first then you can use it again and again? I did that with some dictionary pages and made them into bg papers! Your tag is fab! I love the use of the dictionary and your butterfly is just gorgeous! Thanks for playing with us at TYI!! ;o) xx
