Dream Valley DT 'Tag! You're it!'

For my DT card for The Squirrel and the Fox please scroll down to the previous post. Ta.

Hello again! Apologies for being late with this post, too! Now that I'm a Deputy Church Warden (no need to salute lol!) Sunday mornings can be quite busy! I should have remembered to schedule today's posts. Sorry!!!

Anyway, enough of my twaddle! The new Challenge at Dream Valley is to use a Tag on your creation.

Our sponsor is Lacy Sunshine Stamps and a winner can choose 3 of their gorgeous images from the store! Go and see what my teamies have done with the lovely images they were given!

And here is my card:

The alert among you (ie everyone) will notice that I didn't use a digi image. My printer isn't speaking to my laptop for some reason, and refuses to produce anything but blank sheets of paper. (Or maybe it's pictures of a white horse in a blizzard? No, I don't think so, either.)

There are three tags on the card, they are made with a Whiff of Joy die, the top one is vellum and has 'Dear Friend' stamped on it. The papers are 'Love' by Fancy Pants, and I used a Memory Box die to make the border. The button and paper flower are from stash.

I tried to make a tag, using my spray inks and following Dyan Reaveley on Youtube. What a total mess!!! I ended with muddy, blotchy tags that went straight in the bin. I need a lot more practice! The only result of my spraying was the flower stem on the card, and that was cut from the scrap card I put under the tags! Oh dearie me!!!

I hope you'll 'play tag' at Dream Valley, and that you're more successful than I was!!!

Thanks for looking, and have a good week!

love Mags B x
