Rumtruffle's Easter Tag

Hi, and welcome!

I can't believe it's Thursday already........I think there's a big, dark hole in my house, where all my days disappear before I can even do much with 'em!

For those of you with a bit of the Emerald Isle in your blood (me! me!), HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!!
I can't say that it's ever been a big event, here in England, but I do remember having a day off from Catholic school when St. Patrick's Day came around, and Sister Ignatious, (my headteacher, who was an Irish nun) roaming the streets of the neighbourhood to make sure that all her "bold girls" were attending Mass........I'm sure she had eyes in the back and sides of her head!

Well, I had a little time to make an Easter tag, for Helen's monthly tag challenge at

It's probaly going to end up on a card for my Mam, this Easter.........

I didn't have the right colour of card to use as the background, so I used Pastel Yellow Promarker, then used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder on the piece of lilac gingham scrap paper that was in my scrap box, and used a small piece of more scrap paper to layer across the bottom.........

the cute basket was a free digi, as was the Easter freebies!.......and I cut it all out, and whipped out the Promarkers again......finished the basket with some flat-backed pearls (sweeeet), and sparkled up the eggs with glitter pens.........

the flower wreath was cut out from more of those scraps (fiddly, but worth it!), and the flowers were already glittered......see the tiny ladybird?....aaaaawwww!
The tag was finally finished by punching two holes in the top, and threadin' through some sparkly ribbon that I snagged at Hobbycraft.......and there ya go!

Going to Bury Market tomorrow, with my girlies, hopin' to pick up some pretty lace from one of the fantastic stalls......I'll show you if I get any, lol!


Anything goes
