Tag Tuesday...

Hello my sweet friends..  How is everyone doing?
I hope the answer is "Great"!!


I am finally back doing a tag.. Yea..
The Talented Rebecca has taken over Tag Tuesday..
And I just wanted to say Thanks for taking over.  It has been one of my
favorite challenges..  And I am looking forward to playing along here with you!!

So this week Rebecca is Challenging us to use a cut up post card..


So here is what I came up with..  I have to admit.. I didn't use my postcard.. So sorry..
I just love this post card.  I got it on one of my trips to Solvang, California..
So I took a photo copy of it and Cut that up.. 




I really couldn't decide if I should put this flower on.. 
I really liked it both ways..  I think without the flower it gave it a more vintage look..
With the flower it gave it more color..  
Decisions, Decisions..   Well you can see what I did..






 A Tim Holtz stamp..  Some seam binding and eyelash yarn..
To top it off..   No stitching again.. What in the heck is going on!!





And there you have it..  Another Tag..
I love the way this turned out...

Thanks again Rebecca for the great challenge..   I am looking forward to playing some more..
To see the other entries you can pop over HERE..




Not that I am excited or anything..  But only a week away till my
daughter is due..  Can you see me jumping up and down..







Thanks so much for stopping by..
I really do appreciate all the sweet comments..
You Ladies are the best..

Hugs, Linda

You look too young to be a grandmother Linda! Gorgeous pictures of your daughter! Your tag is beautiful too! Good idea to take a picture of it, even a scan would be good, so that you can keep the original!

I so love that tag, I know that's a great postcard to start with, but it would be so beautiful without your magical touch!

: ) love that "Do Not Open till...." photo, so funny!

note- i was typing halfway and lost my comment, not sure if it went through, just in case you see "double', just delete the other one!

What an amazing vintage tag, Linda!! I love those colors, so cheery. Glad you added the flower. A sweet pop of color!! And I can see why you used a copy of your postcard to cut up for your tag. It's too pretty to cut up! Thanks for sharing those amazing photos of your daughter--you must be bursting at the seams with excitement. Have fun!
