A bit of flag waving

Here is another of the Little London Magnolia collection, I just couldn`t resist this little guy and he will be wending his way to my best mate Sally. We call her our English stick of rock because if you sliced her down the middle she would have England or a Union Jack printed all the way through her like a stick of rock! She is the most patriotic person I know and she will love this little fella.

This is the back of the little pull out tag. I decided in my infinite wisdom, to staple the ribbons on, (that was my first mistake) as my mini stapler decided to ping the first staple across the room and dump the inner workings of my stapler onto the surface of my craft desk! after a lot of fiddling and muttering I managed to get it back together but next time I will just punch a hole in the tag and thread the ribbon through methinks!!

Other products used - Ruby Rock-It vintage papers, La La land Heart Banner die, hobby house pearls, Distress Inks and Markers.

I`d like to enter this into Tilda`s Town challenge which this time around is "Anything Goes"

Fancy a Cuppa?

I`m back after a longer than anticipated break. Decorating is finished, Craft room up and running and then my mojo packed her bags and went well and truly awol for months..... But I`m back to full steam now, mojo back in place and locked down and raring to go...

I fell in love with the Little London collection from Magnolia, who couldn`t! here is Tilda with her cup of tea! I can`t do without a cuppa so I can identify with this little lady!

K & Co papers, La La Land die, Martha Stewart punch all available from Sir Stampalot. Flowers WOC.

As you can see I`ve been playing about with my Blog design, as you can also see I have no idea what I`m doing LOL, but I`m being brave and clicking buttons to see what happens ! (I`m terrified I might accidentally delete all my posts) but I`ll keep experimenting until I get it right so please bear with me :)
