Have a Dirty Weekend

Sorry my wonderful crafty pals, my title promised so much and all it is aimed at is a 4 wheel driver hee hee. This time it is a man tag with a tatty background.  I turned my hexagon borders into crawler boards. The title quoted one of the stickers that was on a landrover I had many years ago, the other sticker was rude and my boss did not approve.  I will say that the stickers were there when I bought it.
The police allowed me past their cordon to drive from the top of Bath onto an unmarked blanket of snow, there was no way I could tell where the road was. Those were the days before Health and Safety. Funny how a memory returns to us - Now I have a sensible little automatic and have reached the grand age of 57 today.
Yesterday was my perfect day, I met up with two of my blogging crafty pals, and my newest at a crafty shop/cafe. Stash, food and the best company anyone could wish for. Thank you both very much.
This is only my second tag but I did have fun thinking how to do it. Thank you also to all my crafty pals who take the time to leave me comments, I so enjoy reading them. 

Tag is made from Papermania Kraft card cut using 
the "Tags and Bookplates" alterations die ,
Other Dies used – wooden 4x4 die and Die-namics Open Hexagon Border.
