Live, Laugh, Love.

Hello, I hope you are having a lovely day and I hope the weather is better for you than it is here, its raining and cloudy.  Not that it worries me, I will be up in my craft room later, playing, so I will be quite happy!


The tag is made using Sizzix die Super Scallop Crescent.  I stamped round the edge using a free stamp that came with Craft Stamper which was designed by Visible Image - the words are from the same stamp set. I embossed the tag with Creative Expressions Brick embossing folder.  The words are stamped with black Versafine and embossed with clear powder.  The flourish is Mini Flourish Movers and Shapers die by Sissix and the little red heart is made using a punch.  Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste has been used for the background through a Special Touch mask and bakers twine to finish.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Visible Image - Tags - I hope this qualifies as I used free stamps designed by Visible Image.  I do have other wonderful Visiible Image Stamps but wanted to use this set.

That's Crafty - Black and white with a splash.

Scrapology  -  Freebies.

These are all fabulous challenges so if you could, please visit the blogs and see the fabulous Design Team projects and wonderful entries.

Thank you so much for visiting me - I really appreciate it - your visits and comments really give me a boost and your blogs really inspire me!  Take care.  Christine xx

It looks wonderful. I love the little red heart against the monochrome and the tag looks great - love the edges. I hope everyone enlarges the image to see it properly.
I've done quite a bit of crafting, lately, Lol! Looking forward to some some, though. Jx
