I'm a little bit late...

....with this post. Just back from holiday today, arrived home about 3 hours ago and had to get some shopping first as OH and Mathilda really get grumpy about no food.... :) We had the most fantastic week in Dorset, such glorious weather we couldn't believe our luck!
Anyway back to my card. This week s challenge at Delicious Doodles is 'Tag it', you can make a tag or add a tag to your creation. I made a tag shaped card using one of Teri's newer images Tall ship and banner which you can find here. This is such a fabulous image...would make a fantastic pirate ship!I simply printed it in blue and die cut it, then mounted on a die cut circle, added some twine a metal button, brad and fancy paperclip (which was silver so I coloured it with a copic marker).
We'd love it if you 'tag along' with us this week! Just click here to see the rest of the team's fabulous makes and to add your own creation.
Can't keep my eyes open any longer, so I'm off for a lovely bath and an early night!
Have a fab weekend

Delightful!! What a great tag for a guy - bold colors and design, the elements are all very masculine, - the use of burlap & twine & metal are perfect! Well done! Thank you for sharing your project & your creativity at our house!
