Nine!

Tag09a0906

Better late than never! Is n't that what they say! I am not talking about the tag of course ... because as long as that was blogged before I went to sleep ... well we would still be on the nine more sleeps until Ranger Ink Paradise ... no I was talking about my desk. It is Wednesday which not only means I show you my Number 9 tag in the 10 More sleeps to Ranger U tag countdown ... it means that gazillions of like-minded crafters will be cramming themselves into Julia's place to take part in WOYWW. Phew ... what a mouthful that was. Desk looks pretty messy WOYWW0906 I am afraid ... no excuses ... but making tags just brings out my messy side :0) Actually I don't have a tidy side ... but don't tell anyone!

The tag is coloured with Bundled Sage; Rusty Hinge; Forest Moss and Old Paper Distress inks! You can also see some Lord Tim of Holtz hardware and his yummy scrummy film strip ribbon ... more Rock Candy Distress stickles ... some Timmy stamps, a Dark Room door Frangipani stamp and the Paper Artsy Hot Picks flourish ... which I love! Talking of Tim ... you know Tag09c0906 Tim ... the man that can win the World Cup on his own while playing the ukulele and creating a scale model of a medium sized African Safari Park including animals with just a pair of Tonic Studio Non Stick Scissors and a single game spinner ... well I used his Grungepaper too!

Righty ho then ... you should be able to see Anneliese's tag here already or very shortly ... a big Thank you to everyone that joined in our tag countdown challenge yesterday ... if you feel like it ... we would love for anyone to join in today too ... just link back here so we can come see you too!

Have a good one people!

Oh this is gorgeous Linda - wouldn't expect anything less from you ;-) I got as far as colouring 3 tags in the very wee small hours (did you see my comment) but was stuck for inspiration. Am well on the way to completing one now and hope I can post number 10 retrospectively.
The desk isn't REALLY messy, or maybe that's just 'cos you've got such a big desk that mess doesn't look so bad when it's spread out.

Debi said...

Awesome tag! It is perfect for today. Love how it turned out. Now what am I to do while you are away. I will miss seeing your posts and artwork. I know you will have more when you come back but....

The Crafty Chick said...

I was wondering what the most hardware is you have managed to fit on a tag. And what will you do with themomce the countdown is done? Pressie for tim?

Val said...

Wow - nothing less than perfection from you. Cannot imagine why you think you need to go and spend all that time with the lovely Tim!

If this is perfection - what will you have to show us when you get home??

Hope you've got your case packed and the taxi booked at least 6 hours before the flight!!!

Hugs
Valxx

LadyBug said...

Your tag is beautiful Linda. I love how you mix all those colours and they look so fab! together If i tried this it would look like one big pile of poo.

Always plenty of gorgeous creativity here and love seeing what's on your space (I was even later than you - didn't do mine till this morning) x

Glen said...

Fab tag Linda - as always....do you really NEED to go to RU. There isn't much you need to learn - is there? *Ü* I do believe that I would benefit more, so how about a 'RU Swap'? You can stay at my home and organise my stash! *Ü* TFS. ~Glen~

Hands to Work, Hearts to God said...

Chrissie said...

Can't quite believe how tidy your desk is (why would you think otherwise?) when you've been so busily making all these gorgeous tags!
Good luck and Bon Voyage with the forthcoming trip.

Kathy said...

Your desk looks wonderful, so do your fabulous creations - nothing new there, though,
I didn't play WOYWW this week - I don't actually know who stole my week - but it certainly wasn't used up in crafting :(
