Maypole Queen for Happy Daze's New Challenge

Happy Daze's new challenge  is 'May Queen', all details on the blog http://happydazedesignteam.blogspot.co.uk/ and the monthly prize for one lucky winner is £15 worth of vouchers.........woo hoo.

I have a load of Grand-Daughters birthdays this month so this new stamp by Suzi Blu is perfect for them, she is so pretty and am totally in love with her.

When I was a girl we always had a Maypole on the village green in May and all of us girls danced around the Maypole with its fabulous ribbons and one was chosen to be the Maypole Queen.  Sadly I was never chosen........aaaaahhhhhh.     Today am showing you an Enormous Tag or Door Hanger made from recycled items.


( 9 inches x 4 inches)

Items used:  Flat Cardboard and Corrugated Card (packaging) Acrylic Paints, Paint Dabbers, Distress Inks, Viva Inka Gold, Stickles, Gold Glitter and the rest of the bits and pieces are from stash.

Stamps used Suzi Blu 'Pretty Girl' and Inspire Me


plus am showing a card using the same Suzi Blu stamp which is brilliantly easy and quick to make and we all love quick and easy cards don't we................

Will be back later in the day to look at all your new creations, as am on a birthday present buying mission today for the grand-daughters birthdays this month.................wish me luck............!!

Look forward to seeing your take on the challenge.  Take care of yourselves, Annette x

Hi Nettie, love your girlie, so sweet. Your granddaughters are going to love love love. I remember dancing round the maypole...weaving those darn ribbons and getting in a tangle...what fun heady days... I never got picked either to be the Queen. Does anyone except Morris Dancers do the Maypole thing anymore?

fabulous Netty What a fantastic card and tag , great colours and I love the main image. Well done Great work hugs Elaine

Candy C said...

Netty...your tag and card are amazing! I was blown away with how that simple stamp looks so different, depending on how you color (or not color) it. Your granddaughter will love it! That stamp is one that I may not have ever chosen to buy....but after seeing how you've so effectively used it in two completely different applications, I think I may need to look at stamps differently! <3 Candy
