Tag card

After my wee bit of fun yesterday I settled for a lazy stroll through blogland. I do love to see what you are all doing. Thank you my crafty pals for enjoying my twinchie, I so enjoyed the comments. The only trouble with blogland is that we see things we really need and this month's budget is already bust - lol. 
It is bitterly cold here today with a really keen wind. I am hoping it will ease a bit by the time of tomorrow's funeral, at any rate let us hope it doesn't turn to the forecast sleet.
Today's play started out to be a tag and ended up as a card, although I haven't put a greeting on yet, I expect it will be a BIL birthday card. 
Again I have to say that this was a real "I need it" die, and although very intricate it cuts very well especially with the wax paper, so without further ado -

Card blank is 7x5 white texture,
Dies used – Sizzix "Tags and Bookplates" alterations die ,
Sizzix Alterations Embossing Folder - Pocket Watches and
SCACD Alice's Clock Statement Corner.


  1. Hi Flora, lovely tag-card..I see what you mean about this die, it's gorgeous...mind you I like the embossing folder too and have a similar one, different make! Happy Crafting,Carole Z X

  2. You are so right about seeing temptation when visiting blogland - happens to me all the time. Incidentally I love that corner die LOL!!

  3. It's cold here just the same Flora, oh for sunshine.

    Like the colours of your card, in my mind it has a art deco feel to it. Thanks as well for your king visit to me, I know you like I struggle so it makes it all the more special.
