Playing Tag!

Tag1507

In a bid to get better organised ... I got my diary out earlier and input everything and anything that I need to do between now and the end of this year ... well the stuff I know about already I mean!

Anyways ... it struck me ... Can you believe that it is nearly a month ago when Anneliese and I set off to Ranger U! A Whole month!

And that means it is nearly a month since I actually sat down and made a tag ... you know ... just played for playing sake!

So here we have it ... lots of Distress inks and lots of Lord Tim of Holtz's Grungepaper and lots of The Wendy Vecchi's stamps! You know Tim ... the man that can make rainbows in the night sky with just a smidgeon of black enamel accents and a bull dog clip.Tag11507

Now ... here is where the playing came in ... look at this delicious rose ... OK ... it's my first attempt and it aint perfect ... but there is a new type of Grunge Rose in town ... I have made it with metal and canvas too ... but that is for another post. Anyways ... it is really simple and I learned it by following this fabulous tutorial by my fellow Zister Lynne ... go see ... it is her first video and it is fabulous!

I also need to ask you guys if I am the only person in the entire universe that is n't Lord Tim of Holtz's Facebook friend??? Everybody else seems to be :0( And when I ask if he will be my fweind ... it says ... he has too many requests :0( Don't laugh ... it aint funny!

Oh ... and if you still wanna know me secret ... well keep checking here ...

Laters!

Wow love the tag and off to have a look at the tutorial!

Can you ever have too many friends?? Haha Facebook seems to think so, the price of popularity eh? I'll be your fweind but I don't have the same appeal or talent as Sir Tim LOL!

gorgeous tag and gorgeous rose. tim's loss. One day he will be screaming at your door to be friends. Has he seen your creations? Obviously not ma dear.

Nancy said...

Beautiful, Linda!

We can be friends on Facebook if you'd like! (or are we already? lol) Tim's missing out! ;o)

I love your tag and thought that after visiting you for so long I should leave you a comment. BTW I love all your work, obviously why I visit a lot.

I'm not friends with Tim on F'book either, but then I'm not that into F'book myself.

Minxy said...

Super tag, great colours.. as for your secret.. dam thats cost me some big bucks lol

Sid said...

Nice tag Linda !!

Helen said...

Lovely tag and am off to watch the vid now. Good to see you having fun again!

Carmen said...

Can't you message the man on FB? I'm sure he could *ahem* bump off one of his lesser friends for you, the great and gorgeous Linda? Not suggesting murder or anything so drastic - maybe just a *cough, elbow, oops so sorry to push you, quick Linda jump in the space* kinda thing?? But no, I'm not his fwiend either. Must admit that after not 'getting' FB for a long time it's been great for catching up with my sis and friend the last couple of weeks. The sis that lives just down the road mind you but works such weird shifts I never get to see her.

Anyhoo... love your tag - off to see if I can sniff out your secret now ;)

Andrea said...

stunning tag Linda and the rose looks perfect to me, I dont do facebook so sadly have no friends not even Tim :-( I know you feel for me now, have a good day xx

Rosie said...

Lovely tag Linda ... and I'm sure Mr Holtz is already your friend, not to mention one of your BEST FRIENDS. It's only the public at large that have to approach him via Facebook innit??

Love the colours on your tag Linda, that flower is gorgeous. I'm off to check out the video.
Tim just doesn't know what he's missing, Judith xx

Angelnorth said...

I'll keep you company in being no friend of Tim's on FB ;o) (OK, so I don't have a FB account). Fab tag, the rose looks great!

craftimamma said...

Fabulous tag Linda and that rose is awesome. I'm off to check out the tutorial now.

Ah sorry you can't get to be one of Lord T's FB friends but just think, how many of those who are have met him 'up close and personal' like? And even less will have been to Ranger U!!!

Hugs
Lesley Xx

Linda said...

ok, so am I the only person who refuses to do that whole Facebook thing? Love Tim but his blog is all I can manage ;) Love your blog! Look everyday to see what fab thing you have done.

LynneForsythe said...

OMW girlie...thanks for the huge shout out on my video!!! and I think your Rose is just FABULOUS!!! and WARNING....they are a bit addicting!!!

Got another video brewing using Tim's Tattered Floral die and Distress Reinker Mixtures!!!

BTW I'm not Tim's friend either....maybe we should start a FB page for all those peeps who are Tim friendless!!! hehehehe

Anneliese said...

Hey Linda, No I' can't believe it's a month since we went out there !!! where did that go ??
Love that rose. will go & check out the video, thanks for the eyes up hun xx

Twiglet said...

Gorgeous rose and I even went to see Lynne's tutorial - brill!!

Ann said...

I love the colourful tag and the rose looks perfect to me!
Can't see the appeal of FB myself so I'm not a fwiend of Tim either, or I would've let you have my place on his friends list ;)
