Hello everyone..

One more tag to share for Tag Tuesday..and a story.

I was typing away earlier doing my post and my computer started working all by itself..

Okay we all know that is impossible unless you are connected to a friend who can jump online onto your PC and help you in your hour of need when you clicked and shouldn't have,,,,,,BUT that was not the issue, this thing was going up and down flat out..

I have a new keyboard and in my new room there is not a lot of space for a computer station so there I am with very bad posture leaning over the keyboard in a tight corner at the end of my trestle table and my wrist had just touched the ' down page and up page button' was getting ready to leave the room, I tell you, it made me jumpy, and it was only me doing...phew..all sorted and typing resumed...

So onto todays tag..

This was sprayed first with oxide sprays..then stenciled with my new leaf stencil using Altenew Moss ink..

Then I stenciled in navy Blue Bayou ink Stampin' Up ink, this swirl from my stash..

Added a Tim Holtz Elegance Swirl die cute in black, to represent the wind..or at least a breeze.

Then I stamped this Tree image called " Presence of a Tree " Innovative Stamps and added white splatters..

I used a white Gel pen to go around the flourish and the trees for shadow and dimension of sorts...

And here is my finished tag....

And here is my cat who sat right in the middle of my work just to say hello as they do..

And it is the little things in life, my new desk rubbish bucket, it is only 6" high and really cute.

So there go, quite long winded today, sorry about that..but thanks so much for getting to the end and for stopping, so much appreciated, and I will see you in a couple of days..

No, I'm not getting tired of your tags at all.
This one is another beauty and it reminds me of having that flourish die too.
I had a big laugh about your computer story (have experienced the same some time).
Lovely pic of your cat.
