Remember That Tag!

Live 1a

You know that tag! The one that Tim, the master of all things crafty and wonderful, did a tutorial on back in 2008. The one that I love making so very much but never manage to get it to turn out quite right! The one I made the other week and turned into a canvas because I did n't like it!

Yes ... That one!

Well I have had yet another go at it! This time I made several all at once ... picked the one I was most happy with and chopped off the top to make it into a card for Dan's birthday! Live 1

If you are still awake ... this is the card ... one tag  makes the main feature and I cut another one up to make the embellishments. I love making this tag! In fact ... I loved making this card!

I still have n't perfected the tag ... I intend to keep trying though.

We had a fab day ... Dan, Andrea, Hels, Tina and I went to Frankie and Benny's and just laughed and ate and laughed and sang Happy Birthday [Four times - don't ask!!!!] and ate yummy cake and laughed some more :0)

Enjoy your evenings - Whatever you are doing!

Absolutely brilliant, love the tag, love the birdies, love it all. The man/umbrella image reminds me of a film poster and I can't for the life of me remember the film... but I can see the actor in my head clear as day, oh that's going to really bug me now!!

Did they turn out all the lights and play the music at Frankie and Bennys? I love being there when they do that for someone :P

Carmen said...

Hahaaa! Peter Sellers, Being There.

Angie said...

Brilliant card ...and as for that tag ... I think it is amazing but it is to you what certain landscapes and topics were to the great painters who painted and repainted the same scene for up to 30 years trying to get it perfect.

Glad to hear you had such a good time

Hels said...

Cards like this one are more than just a card, they are more like a present that you can take bits off and use for yourself **ROFL**
Thank you for a FAB day, the bit I liked most was the amazing compliment you paid me...that will stay with me FOREVER!!!!!
