You Know I love Tags...

I was getting a little worried that I wasn't going to make it in time for
Tag Tuesday!  There challenge ran for two weeks.. Thank Goodness..
So I got to play along.  I am also entering this Tag into The Kaft Journal..




Over at Tag Tuesday the Challenge is to add a postmark to your Tag..
What a great challenge..  My postmark is one of Tim Holtz stamps.



This cute little image is from Crafty Secrets.. The sweet Suzz had sent me.
Thank you my sweet friend..
 




I added a paper doilies that was soaked in some coffee.
and some yummy seam binding and lace..



Over a The Kraft Journal the challenge is to use Buttons on your project.
I have to give a little shot out to a couple of ladies who inspired me
to do this challenge..  TRACY and  AUDREY..
You ladies are amazing!!



So there you have it..  Another wonderful Tag to add to my collection..

To see all the wonderful entries you can head over to



I guess I better go get ready for work..
We have a fun craft at school today. Yep we are playing with glitter..
The kids just love it.

Thanks so much for stopping by..

Hugs, Linda
