Linda's Countdown -3

Here is my tag for today - only 3 sleeps to go, Linda.  Are you still sleeping? Linda's day 3 tag is here

I've used the Jo C-S inspired string technique again here, with a couple of perfect pearl/DI reinker combi's.  The eagle-eyed among you may spot I've been online shopping again (Tim's tiny attacher and the stencil type 3 idea-ology, ooops. couldn't help it!)

I quite liked the tag without anything on it, too, but decided it was a bit mean not to decorate it at all!  (the picture doesn't really do it justice, trust me it looked quite good "naked")

Also, because I know she's received it, I can show you the card I made for Hels to celebrate her birthday (I didn't put any large numbers on it cos I thought that would be mean, even though she seems to quite like being 40.  Some of us wish we were STILL 40...)

It's an 8x8 inch square card, with Tim and Wendy stamps and victorian velvet DI on the card, then a square of Tim's vintage shabby paper (see how much I think of her, to use that, lol!) and some metal tattered floral die cut flowers (that was the sneak peak from my workdesk last week) and some prima flowers.

Off to watch the footie now, and to think about tomorrow's tag... see you soon.

Love the naked tag, lol! It looks good with clothes on, too! And your card for Hels is spectacular, love the metal flower! You've been quite busy lately, but not so much as to neglect the footie, I see....lol

Another stunning tag Helen and as I said the other day, sometimes all you need is lovely inking and stamping but the tag looks great either way. Love what you've put on the little potion bottle :-)
Gorgeous card for Hels too :-)

I like your naked tag too. It's great when decorated but i do agree it looked good naked.

Enjoy your footie - my excuse to craft (sorry)
