last minute tags, new stamps and a winner....

I decided to make a couple of special last minute tags for some gift baskets I purchased yesterday and thought I'd enter them into Louise's latest challenge... to use gold or silver on your tags.
Last minute tag

this is the first one ~  the second is very similar... a bit different distress round the edge and a different flower.  The vintage image was a freebie on Joy's (aka dustypenny) blog.  I resized it in word and printed on 140gm cream printer paper.  I added glossy accents to the birds and the holly berries and some glitter glue in gold round it.

Now for the new stamps.... my parcel from Simon Says Stamp arrived this morning... I got three new stamps... the Cling Bicycles, Small striped flower and Classic Fabric design.  Plus the wonderful staff at Simon Says Stamp added a set of blue rhinestones as a little gift.  How sweet.  Can't wait till I can play.... maybe next week.... too busy today.

And yesterday I was stoked to find out I made the Fab 4 at the Play Date Cafe challenge ~ a touch of Yellow with this card.  Quite excited.

Well that's it for me for a few days.... I just realised I forgot the avocado when I went out shopping the morning... so need to see if I can get one now.....:-(  at least the fruit and veg shop is only a kilometre away.
