This is just silly, two posts in one day

It seems the more time I have to do something, the more likely I am to forget all about it. I completely forgot about the Tag Tuesday challenge from TWO weeks ago! Usually we are set a challenge every Tuesday, but this time we were given two weeks to complete our challenge. Sigh. Too long for me, lol, until a couple of days ago I had forgotten all about it, and then the weather turned so nice, I spent most of my time geocaching with my youngest son.

So today, the panic set in, lol, as the two weeks are up today, and a new challenge will be set tomorrow. Oh, the flurry of activity in my room here, you would have had a good chuckle if you could have seen me. But, I have finished a tag, woohoo.

The theme was "SURPRISE". Take all the lovely sunshine, the walks in the woods I have had over the last few days, and its no surprise ( groan that I came up with a tag like this one -




Psst, you have to be very quiet when you see a faerie door in the woods, you know. You don't want to upset the faeries. But if you knock very gently on the tiny door


then perhaps it will open for you a little,


and if you sing a gentle song, you may be allowed to push the doors open wide and


and see the tree faerie fluttering about in her beautiful tree home. And that is the "SURPRISE".
I thoroughly enjoyed making this tag, I do have a soft spot for these beautiful creatures.

I think this is the most creative tag I've ever seen! The little door is great, hidden fairy and natural looking wood front..wow...this is amazing.

What a delightful surprise tag! I love how you've used woodsy photos, and the embossed leaves. A perfect little fairy home.

What a neat idea to have a tree fairie inside of the tree tag! She's beautiful.

Well quite clearly you work very well under pressure. That's the prettiest tag to date. I adore the doors, not pun intended! Very girly and pretty. Well done indeed.

Hi Liz
Sorry for not stopping by before now. I also forgot all about Tag Tuesday and could kick myself especially as there is now no more Tag Tuesday which is sad.
Anyway, adore your tag with the secret door. So Springtime!
Have a great week.
