Friendships Warm the Heart


Hi, am early today because have got to get the place cleaned before the family arrive......sigh sigh.

Anyways I made this huge tag for the Art Journey Challenge which is make a tag using mainly Art Journey stamps. Have been trying to take part in these challenges for ages but time just slips away and as I was up at 6.30am this morning I got straight on to it..........yep it has taken me this long to make it............lol

Hope you like it as its going out to a blogging friend of mine. Have a great day while I am slaving away with the housework.................aaaaahhhhh Will be back later tonight after Benidorm to see all your lovely work. Take care, hugs Annette x


PS (Saturday) Have just found out this is an ISC Stamp not Art Journey, oh b.....r this will teach me to wear my specs while sorting out my stamps.....lol I am definitely doomed with entering the Art Journey Challenge.......

Annette this is soooo beautiful. I love the way you have repeated the small stamp to fill the tag, and the way you have stamped the ribbon. Your colouring and the colours you have used are wonderful. This has made me realise that small stamps can fill large spaces. Thanks so much for sharing - have a fab weekend x

Love this tag, Netty, such warm and happy colours. I am still trying to convince myself that less is more, but I'm afraid I am losing the battle!
