A little Toot! - I'm on the Tag Tou're it Design team!!!!..

How exciting is that!!!!! Sam and Anne asked me to be on the new design team for Tag you're it!! Before you know it I will see the bottom of my paper and card scraps box LOL!

Joining me are these fabulously talented ladies;



Go check out their blogs to see their fab talent!


Well back to today's challenge -Altered Fabric flowers. Well you may have noticed I do like to add the odd flower or two to my cards and tags - my first thought was felt, then I decided to try and do something a bit different. I have a shopping bag made of hessian that I have already cut into as it had split, so I tried putting it through the big shot and guess what it worked!!!! Oooooh I was dead pleased with myself - I sealed the edges of the flower with pva to stop it fraying and I am quite happy with the result. I added a circle of felt and a button in the middle. Also I managed to use up some more of those scraps - 2 -yes 2 pieces of card and some lovely basic grey paper (mellow I think). And some more scraps of ribbon.








Now you are all thinking to yourselves 'she didn't alter the flower ' - no I altered the shopping bag instead!!!!!! ;oS


Go check out the rest of the team's tags - you are in for a treat!
Thanks Sam and Anne for asking me!
