A little bit of sunshine



Here in Hampshire (England) spring is certainly upon us this week and it is lovely to have some mild and bright weather. A little tag in celebration!
2 stamped and embossed layers to create this tag decorated simply with a homemade flower, some seam binding and a butterfly.


I would like to enter:

 My tag is a version of one done a couple of years ago by Tammy Tutterow - you can find hers here

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by.

    1. Hi my dear! The flower is made with a die - but not a TH one - it us Ariana blooms by Heartfelt creations. Yep just normal cardstock. There is a stamp set that goes with the dies which I embossed in the yellowy colour - before inking the card blue- you might be able to see it quite subtly on the close up! Hope you are doing ok.

  24. This is stunning Nikki and the quote so true! A couple of years ago we had days on end of grey days - we went into Manchester and while sitting a cafe the sun streamed through the windows and I started to cry, it felt like such a relief!! Hubby just laughed at me of course!! Hugs, Chrisx

  29. Your tag is soooo pretty! I'm sure you plucked that flower... Spring is "JUST" starting to pop here in Canada. But living this close to the Rockies there will be more snow. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us at Frilly and Funkie!
