Shabby and Vintage Tags 2

A little while ago I showed you two of the tags I made while I was away for a few days over half term. We found a fabulous B&B and went out during the day, but when we got back late afternoon, I sat in our room and made these tags before we got ready and went out for an evening meal.

First though I haven't welcomed any of my new followers for ages, so a big hello to Nigel, romantyczka, Sue, Lindsay, Sara, Sara, Susan, Tee, Caroline, Ginger, Gypsy Purple, Tammy, Debby, Ozmunchkin, Caroline, Marlene, Judith, Trace, Cath, Suzanne, Sandra, Marie, Michelle, Wendy and Renee. I find it so amazing that people want to follow my creative journey and feel so blessed that you leave wonderful comments for me.

So onto tag number three. This has a mix of elements on it that I had taken with me, the rosette had already been cut for another project and not used, but was very useful on this tag to lift the butterfly. The words come from an old book I bought at an antique store we found at the side of the road on one of our days out, and it's one I will use when I finish Ken's bird album.

Tag four's image I think is from a Debbie Moore set I bought ages ago and again all the other elements I had in envelopes in my bag,  except the little lace rose which I had bought whilst out on my travels that weekend.

I hope you like my little collection.

I have actually got the Christmas decorations down from the loft and decorated the conservatory and dining room.  want to get the living room and hallway done next weekend and the trees can be bought and decorated the weekend after that. Now just gotta get cards and pressies sorted.

I hope you are enjoying your Sunday, it is beautifully sunny here after a most miserable day yesterday.

Thanks for stopping by to see me.
