 Hello everyone..

So much going on this weekend and what a great weekend it has been so far..

My Grandsons turned up to make me a new fence up the top half of the shared drive, I had trellis there but it more or less disintegrated...

Here's a few pics..

What a great weekend..

I whipped up a couple of tags through all this excitement too..
because I kept getting in the way

The theme for these tags were birds, and these are going to Tag Tuesday challenge..

All began with these papers for Couture Creations paper pad,
Enchanted Tea Party Collection..

Die cut some branches, then coloured them with my markers, added some birdies..
Done.....or was I..

I needed dimension, so fussy cut flowers from the scraps of papers.

Found this cord with leaves on it in my ribbon stash..
just what I needed..

Isn't that lovely..

The dimension...not a lot, but some.

The tags full size..

And here they are, could be bookmarks too as not too thick at all..

So there we go,
Thank you so much for stopping by, I'll see you tomorrow..

How lucky you are to have such helpful and kind grandsons.
And well done being able to create while all this went on. Beautiful papers turned into gorgeous tags. Love the special details like the popped up flowers and special ribbon with leaves.
