Hi, and welcome!
What a beautiful spring day we've been having.....hope it's been as nice where you are!
When I was a little girl.....just a few years ago........I remember having to go to the headmistress's office, so that she could listen to me read from a story book, (wasn't just me....we all had to take a turn) and, as I was a very curious l'il 'un, my eyes used to be drawn to a small filing cabinet that stood in the corner.
Sitting on top of that cabinet was a box of TAGS!
I didn't know that that was what they were called, at the time........but that was where my love affair with tags got started.
When I was older, and started my first job.....I was a Telex Operator in a motor factor's office......I could hardly contain my excitement when I discovered that I had a whole stationery cupboard to myself! There, in all their brown, cream, yellow, and white splendour, were boxes and boxes of bee-oo-ti-fool tags.....and they had those paper holey thingies, and string.........and, be still my beatin' heart!......brown, green, and blue manila folders!!!!
Oh, I loved that job!
When I bought my Big Shot, many moons ago, guess what was the first die I bought?
Well, actually, it was a daisy, lol............but my second, third and fourth, were TAGS!!
These little pieces of card are such versatile, tiny (or not so tiny) works of art, and I don't use them nearly as often as I should.....they give me such a buzz when I use 'em.........sad, I know, lol!
So, here's my effort to enter into Helen's monthly tag challenge, over at acraftykindoftruffle.blogspot.com
April's theme is New Baby........
I had this pretty little pink-dotted frame, so went with a baby girl tag........
Doesn't she have the sweetest l'il face?
All coloured with Promarkers.....still don't have my colouring the way I would like, but I'm always in too much of a hurry to take the proper time to practice!
The cute pinky gems are from my stash......I have loads of stuff like this, but they always seem to fill a yawning gap so nicely, lol.......
I don't have very many of these tiny mulberry flowers left, but should get more because I think they are so delicate-lookin'.......
A bit of pink ric-rac (I hated ric-rac, at school....always had to sew some on my Domestic Science apron, every flippin' new term!)...and some cream satin ribbon, held in place by a cream brad......and, voila!
I'm already thinkin' that I can use this as the focal point of a card for my friend's baby grandaughter........mmmmm.......I'm off to play!
