Tag You're It!

Good morning beautiful people! Well I went to see Les Miserables yesterday and I must say I didn't really enjoy it that much.  I have never seen it on stage and I remember why now because it is such a depressing tale.  Didn't think the singing was up to much either!  However the acting was excellent and the photography and effects were good  but the cinema was freezing sat there for 3 hours with my coat buttoned up and collar turned up.  I have to admit I am a Phantom girl - love it to pieces and its on at The Empire in Liverpool soon so I am going to try and get to see it again.

Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Delightful Challenges, the theme is:


So we need to see a tag somewhere on your project.  Now I think some of you are going to look at my card and think she hasn't got a tag on hers but believe me I have!! Guess which numpty die cut the sentiment with her tag die upside down - mmmm wonder who??

Not only that but then I covered the bottom of the tag with flowers and ribbon and so you can't see the "tag" part at all - believe me its there!!  I have used the delectable Beatrice Bee:

She has been coloured with Copics and I used my Twinkling H2Os on her wings and heart which is quite luminescent but you can't see it in my picture. I then partially cut her out with a Spellbinders Oval and matted on a Fancy Oval. I have used a sentiment from the Love is in the Air Sentiment Set:

The sentiment was cut out using a Doohickey tag die and yes I know its upside down lol! Other dies I have used are Whiff of Joy Heart Banner Die, Dienamics border die and Lil Inker Heart and Arrow die. The papers are First Edition, flowers from Wild Orchid and pearl string and ribbon from my stash.

Our sponsor this week is:

and the prize for the lucky winner will be:


Please pop over to my team mates at Delightful Challenges and see what they have done. Remember, you don't have to have a Digital Delights image to enter but we love it so much when you do that you can enter it twice.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Crafting by Design - Use Alcohol Markers + Hearts
Inky Impressions - Tag It
Paper Pretties - Use Ribbon
Digital Tuesday - Flower Power
Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Flowers and Ribbon

Well hopefully this post will publish as I am scheduling it.  I am going to get my nails done today and then that's it really.  I am off on Saturday to spend a week with my two gorgeous grandsons Harrison and Rafe down in London.  I am driving down on Saturday but there seems to be a lot of snow forecast for Friday/Saturday so I will have to see how it goes!  Thanks for looking and take care xx

Judith said...

This is so cute Susan - great choice of colours and happy tag accident I'd say. Not wanting to be controversial - I love les mis! Seen it 3 times on stage and it's perhaps just as well you don't live in my house because I haven't stopped singing it since I saw it on Sunday! - but I sing so much better than Russell Crowe lol hugs Judith x
