Thank you!!

Another thank you to my Out laws.. the children visited them as well this summer and I wanted to try a Tim's technique that I had used on a challenge. My MiL crafts and I took some time. The visits to them are riotus and exciting so I went for bright colours and embossed packaung but simple words.The packaging was embossed with the cuttlebug stars embossing folder and then spritzed with bronze radiant rain on the wrong side then fixed with red star brads. I managed a one of Tim's rosttesm a mirale to this who know me!! I'm a bit heavy handed and usually end up with a couple of wiggly bits rather than a rosette.. chuckle.It was all finished off with a few words using my dymo.. a right result as my FiL would say!

All that fun and care!

I've got very behind on blogging my craft.. there was a slight hold up whilst my Sister collected a Thank you tag from the Post Office.. it took her 3 weeks and that was it all my good intentions went to pot whilst  I was waiting for her to see what I had made. This was another one that got held up. I made tags for oth sets of grnadparents that had the children over the holdiays. This was my Mum and Dads and I wanted to express that we know how much they love them. I distressed and tag it wild honey and rusty hinge distress inks then stamps the unity cow parsley stamp in faded jeans, stamping twice each time the get the depth of colour on the first and a lighter touch on the second.I masked the tag and sprizted with bronze ?? rain. I liked the idea of hearts and stamped shrink plastic with staz on in saddle  brown, cherry and teal and shrunk them (memories of shrinking craip packets flooded back!). The smaller tage was a luggage label found in the drawer and the wors well that was my wonderful dymo. I think they liked it... well it's still on the dresser :-)
