Scheduled ... Not!

PAtag1a

I had planned to schedule this post for midnight ... but the carriage turned into a pumpkin and I have no idea where the horses went ... perhaps the mice in the road scared them off!

Do I sound like I have lost the plot? I don't think I have ... but I could certainly do with a map to locate it! I had one of those yummy Bank Holiday lie-ins ... you know the ones ... you get up a bit later ... eat your breakfast in your jammies!

It was only a few weeks ago when I was telling the Wonderful Lin and the Lovely Karen that I had paid extra to  have a coating put on my glasses ... so when I go from cold to warm ... they don't fog up! Anyways ... this morning I found myself wondering why they had suddenly stopped working ... all steamed up they were ... could n't get my head around it at all ... until I went to wash my face ... I was stood in the shower ... Oh yes! ... nekked as a jay bird ... still wearing said glasses :0) So where is the map??? You know ... for the plot!!!PATag1

Loved making this tag ... love the new Paper Artsy stamps a lot ... a yummy flower with some gorgeous images and patterns on it ... a yummy bird cage that shrinks down to make a really delicate and pretty charm ... a yummy flourish that depending on which way you use it ... makes a pattern that looks like it took two separate stamps.

Did you spot it? The Lord Tim of Holtz Ornate Frame ... you know Tim ... the man that can cloud surf with just a swivel clasp and two foundations! Love the foundations too ... just keep stroking them ... I will use them soon :0)

Distress ink colours are Spiced Marmalade and Aged Mahogany.

Have a good week everyone!

Hi Linda,

It's now 1am on the 6th and I'm blog surfing when I should be sleeping, but what a reward. I get to be the first to see your gorgeous tag. The rose is sumptuous and the birdcage is fabulous (and that's from someone who has three, yes three, drawers of bird related stamps) and why did I never think to use a birdcage stamp on shrink plastic? Because I'm not you, that's why. Love it, just love it.

craftimamma said...

I think all people who were glasses regularly (like me) have done the shower bit Linda, so you're not going bonkers.

Only four more sleeps and I get to see my heroine in action, Lol!

Luurve the tag BTW. It's absolutely wonderful.

Hugs

Julia Dunnit said...

ooh am loving this tag. Am just off for some therapy now, can't get the picture of you in the shower out of my head. It's not the nakedness thing - after all, I'm a girl, it's the glasses thing...I need to make sure I never travel that same path......

Ayelet {Jenny} said...

LOL!I am afraid that map is lost over here, my DH would be very happy if someone could be kind enough to find mine :-)
Beautiful Tag, I make the Tim flowers from paper, but they look so much better made out from grange board, I think I need to order some :-)

Toucan Scraps said...

that is fantastic

judith@poppy cottage said...

Love the tag Linda, beautiful colours. The little birdcage is great. I have a migraine today, so my plot has well and truly gone. So looking forward to seeing you at the weekend. Judith x

Elaine A said...

Linda -

Your tag is just lovely! I am so excited because I just ordered the set with the flowers and birdcage from Leandra. I didn't realize (a DOH! moment for me) that Leandra would ship to the US. So I am waiting for it to arrive, then I can play too!

Elaine Allen

P.S. I once took off my glasses so I could hear better. And I did it in front of a group of people who just about died laughing!

Brenda Brown said...

Georgeous tag, aged mahogany is one of my favourite colours, it looks stunning the way you have put it together. I resonate with the lost the plot stories - glad I'm not the only one.
Take care. LOL Bxx

Debbie S said...

This is great. I've never done the glasses in shower bit but I'm often wondering why I can't see in the shower and realising I've got in before putting my contacts in. Looking forward to seeing you in action at Ally Pally

Lori said...

Mmm, love Spiced and Aged together, lovely colors. This is a fab piece, and those stamps are awesome!

Shazza said...

love this Linda

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Hehehe I've done the same thing ;)
Love the artwork Linda ;) must check out the new PaperArtsy stamps. As for the Rollagraph stamp I had seen them before but at the show in Harrogate a couple of years ago was watching demos and thought I need one of those, as you do! Thought it would be useful for borders and to decorate envelopes though I usually mess up when I do them!
I've got a little something for you on my blog ;)

TinaB said...

Stunning tag! I love everything about it, the bird cage is fab! xx

Jenny said...

That is absolutley beautiful! I love the flower and the bird cage! TFS xx

Kay said...

Gorgeous tag, Linda. Never done that with the glasses, though I was talking to my daughter on my mobile once, at the same time as rummaging in my handbag frantically looking for...... my mobile phone!!! Guess I need the same map, lol

Cher~ said...

Stunning. Love that color combo and wouldn't have thought of that myself.

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Re your comment on my blog, the same kind of thoughts went through my head at the time LOL
