Love Is All Around

Happy Valentine's Day to you. No matter what you are doing or whether you are sharing it with someone or not, I hope you have a lovely day.

The theme for this week's Tuesday Taggers challenge is "Love Is All Around" and they have a lovely prize from The Craft Emporium so I thought I would do a tag using all the things I have been playing with this week.

The heart is triple embossed using Blue Maroon Aurora Cosmic Shimmer EP and Gold Lustre just dropped into it while still hot. Don't ask me whose stamp it is, it's one I found at the bottom of my box and doesn't have a name on.

The swirls were those QVC foam swirls again. I can't get enough of them and the letters were cut on my new Slice, which I'm still getting the hang of. I stuck silver gems on to provide a bit of bling and then made some paper beads, which I have discovered this week and are now being put on everything I do!!! They are very simple and don't cost anything, an added bonus. I would be happy to provide instructions if anyone is interested.

It's not a pretty, pretty tag, but I was making a card for my Hubby at the time and think I've got into the habit of thinking from a male perspective and not being girly!!

Before I go, I must just apologise for my lack of blog visiting this week. I have been a very poor blogging buddy and will try and get round all your lovely blogs and see what you've been creating in the next day or so. I'm so aware that you are visiting me and leaving such wonderful comments and I love reading them and feel guilty when I don't return the compliment.

Thank you, as always, for stopping by.

Hi isa, Thanks for your visit and ccomprehensive
The embossed heart on yout tag is fabulous. I really must have a go at this (I've got the Aurora EP so what am I waiting for?) I'd forgotton all about paper beads until I saw them on an MSC show this week - I think we may see a resurgence of them again. They are so effective. Hope you enjoyed your Valentine's day. I did - I was all on my own all day.
