DragonsDream design team - Tag It On!

Well, here it is, the news I was teasing you with!!
I was thrilled recently to be asked to join Frankie's DragonsDream Design Team for her Tag It On challenges and have joined a bunch of very talented ladies.  This is my first time being part of a design team so I am very excited - but somewhat nervous!  Click the link and come join the fun, please!

This week we are challenging you to use "birds" for your tags. Can't wait to see what you do.

I made a very simple tag using Wendy Vecchi stamps (apart from the tiny tiny leaves which are Art Impressions and the 'dream' and 'hope' which are unknown - but from a set of those self-inked stamps - I got them years ago from LB Crafts at a show somewhere!) and distress inks - crushed olive, forest moss, brushed corduroy, and walnut stain.


I decided to make the 'lady' bird sit on a nest which is from Tim's trimmngs, coloured with some distress ink.










I couldn't find a worm for the boy to bring his lady love!!

Congrats on your DT spot. Have just been over to the challenge for a snoop around and may well enter a tag. I have some ideas brewing. Love your tag and the worm comment. Hugs Mrs A.
p.s. 3.30am or even later is the norm for me. Can't sleep so no point in lying in bed trying to.

Kay said...

Huge congrats H, very well deserved too :) Love the tag and you are, of course, the queen of tags so who else would they choose for the DT? I might even get to join the challenge as I am off from Friday right through to Tuesday 26th so might actually get some "me" time for a change!
