12 tags of 2016 - February

Hi all,

I finally managed to find a little time to make my 12 Tags tag for this month. Scotland was wonderful by the way, we all had such a lovely time the day of the party (for those who missed it, my grandfather was 90 years young on Friday), and quite a few of us continued for most of the evening too. It's not often both my brothers and I are in the same room at the same time, each of us living in a different town, and in my case, different country!
So yes, a fantastic time was had by all, and I have to admit I'm still recovering now!

So, on to the tag! Loved this month's tag - almost as much as last month's - and had so much fun putting mine together and playing the "adapt and overcome" game whenever I didn't have supplies I "needed". You see, the problem with Tim, is that one feels it is absolutely vital to buy each and every item he releases. as I am but a humble unpaid volunteer for a charity, I must live off husband's goodwill and the little spending money he gives me each month. this means I have to choose which products to buy, rather than just fill the basket. Choose! It's a hard life! ;-)

And there it is. It's hard to tell from the picture, but I also tinted the heart (strawberry?) charm with the same colour as the photo. Looks lovely when you can actually see it...
Also, I don't think I've mentioned this quite 100 times yet, so here goes for the 99th time: I was picked as one of the winners last month!! WOOT! Senpai noticed me!!

Right, that's it for me for now, as it's bedtime. Working tomorrow, no rest for the wicked.

Have a most awesomesauce day/evening!

Beautiful tag Sammy!! I love how you have made such a romantic feeling with the softly stencilled hearts and the rose image, yet still kept the vintage distressed feel of the original tag! Love it! hugs :)

Sammy Jean....I am "LOVIN'" your is PERFECTLY executed in my humble opinion! Your placement of all your embellishments along with your sentiment....Love it...your attachment of the heart with the spinner so it would rest flat is really creative too! and the little bow with the rose nestled there....sweet.....Nice job!!!!
