Christmas Left Overs at Tuesday Taggers and a DT CALL


 Before



After

A very good Tuesday morning my dear friends, well I finally got all my DT projects finalised for this week, more slowly than usual, but I did it....our talented Lyn, has chosen a fantastic challenge, this week, at Tuesday Taggers which stretched the minds off all us DT sisters and our Guest Pinky.  You may remember that we asked you a few weeks ago to keep some, left over  Xmas Papers, ribbons, tags, etc, for a challenge, well this is it.....our DT have made some fantastic projects and Lyn has forgotten all about Black....must have been painful for her...LOL.., I tried a bit off "collage work", but that did not work out, so I used a Xmas Tag, (I have the before and after picture), to let you see, how easy it actually was, once I got the idea in my head....we want to see anything, a tag, a card, a Scrapbook Page, and altered item, anything girls, so get the thinking caps on, and join us this week.  I want to thank everyone for your support for my challenge last week, we all seem to have a great love of "Birds", I was thrilled to listen to them, whilst playing in my shed on Sunday, a sure Sign that spring is on its way...I am entering this tag, into Anyone for Anya, who this week, want to see Black, White and 1 other colour.....

Hi Avril Ann,
I would never have guessed that these were one and the same. What a trasformation. I like d the original tag but the addition of that cute image and surrounds really works well. Great.

Avril, what a unique and crafty tag you've turned that old one into! I wish I'd thought of doing something like that. I have some that I used as die-cuts - think I'll give it a go now that I've seen how BEAUTIFUL yours is. :D I love how you colored the little cutie. You're so crafty, my dear! How are you getting on these days? Staying warm? Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such warmth - it puts such a big smile on my face! ;D
