Up Up and Away

What a way to start a Monday morning. I was drinking my tea, minding my own business listening to the radio when dear old Terry W made his announcement about leaving the Breakfast Show. Now I know this is not earth shattering in the scheme of things but I am one of those people who was brought up with Tel in the'70's, he then accompanied me to work in the 90's and since 2001, when I became a stay at home Mum has got us going every morning with many a smile. He will be sorely missed in this household. Mornings will never be quite the same. We wish you well Terry.

Now down to crafty things. The theme for this weeks Tag It On challenge is Up Up and Away. My first thought was hot air balloons, but I have no stamps of them so I'm afraid I resorted to the trusty dragonflies again.

I glimmer misted the background and then stamped the Stamptivity lady in dark blue brilliance ink. I silver embossed some more of the flowers on the same stamp on the bottom, embossed some dragonflies on scrap card and cut them out and attached them and then added a bit more foliage in black down the side.

Freya has also done a tag this week with a different lady from the same sheet. She painted her background with cosmic shimmer watercolours and stamped just the lady (missing of the rest of the stamp) with crimson brilliance and the butterflies with the Marvy shades of sunset blending blox.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

gorgeous tage - Freya really is showing an amazing talent. I am gutted about Terry as well, mornings won't be the same without his laugh-out-loud brand of humour.
