Symmetry for Tag Tuesday

Hello my crafty friends . Thanks for calling in .  I believe that some one new has popped by and joined my blog .Thank you , hope you like what you see and let me know when you call in again .

 Almost missed this week as life has been quite busy .No dramas really,  just normal household stuff that mounts up after a while and suddenly you have to do a heap of  things.

So the theme of Symmetry.
Before I share must tell you that the DT ladies have posted some awesome tags to inspire you over at Tag Tuesday

I am determined to use what I have from my huge stash of card/paper  scraps and  embellishments .
This is what I managed this week . 

 
I used Whisper White for tag base , Paper from stash, both SU.

Sentiment , SU . Top punched using SU punch .

Twine, bow, flowers from my stash .

Back ground paper has some symmetrical value , I think .
 
Tags , especially hand made by yourself , are a lovely addition to any gift .
They can be as elaborate or as simple as you like and if you have a small collection of them they can make a nice gift too .
 
Well that's it today .
 
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

Music theme tag


Hi there . Well,  as cold as it is outside ,  I am as warm as toast in my craft room where I would like to share a tag .

Before I do though, it would be remiss of me not to acknowledge my new followers .
Thank you so much for joining me in my craft room  where I hope that you enjoy your browsing and that you let me know that you have been so that I can return the visit as soon as I can .


While blog browsing I found this site
http://vintagemadeforyou.blogspot.com.au/

from here I used this image for my "music" tag .
Created this for posting on Tag Tuesday





I printed image twice , cut out the dancer from second printing and 3D it over first .
Adhered a couple of feathers onto back ground paper , 3D the  image panel over them .
Punched hole for added  ribbon .

Hopefully I can find some music paper in my stash and another suitable image to create another tag for this week for I think I have become addicted .     A " tagaholic" a tragic tagger?

Catch you again soon ,cheers for now  Shirley-Anne
