Woohoo, Tag Tuesday has been saved!

A few days ago Chris from Kard Krazy announced that she couldn't carry on with Tag Tuesday any longer as she was overloaded and something had to go. I was devastated but of course we all understand that we can only do so much. I am just so grateful to her that she got me thoroughly hooked on tags, I love making them. Hmm, you have probably noticed that already, lol.

Anyhoo, the wonderful Rebecca came to the rescue and took over the Tag Tuesday Challenge and I'd kiss the girl if she was right here, I am so happy. Her first challenge was " Think Spring ", which isn't that difficult at the moment, as we are having some gorgeous Spring sunshine.

This is what I came up with -




I used an image from the Flower Fairies of the Spring book by Cecily M. Barker, The Celandine Fairy, and printed out the Song of the Celandine Fairy as well. Stamped a few images for the background, embellished with a few flowers and leaves and a bit of vintage French trim and finished it off with the S P R I N G banner.

I even took it out into the garden to photograph it amonst some greenery, lol -


I am so happy Tag Tuesday is back, sigh. Huge thanks to Rebecca, who set up a lovely new blog just for this challenge. Do visit it here and see all the other gorgeous Spring tags.

Dear Liz,- it is so lovely, and you made a wonderfull job bringing all this beautifull colors together.
I love the fairies from C.M.Barker-and are so lucky to have collected some of the old editions of her books.
Such a beautifull tag, sweet friend.

I've enjoyed reading your blog - especially your life in France...where is your cottage? It looks stunning! We're living in France - between Clermont Ferrand & St Etienne. I don't have as much time for crafts & blogging as I'd like - I have to w*rk! Still...it's great to be here! I'll have to examine our Big Brocante sale in July with fresh eyes - I'm usually rather dismissive, but this year perhaps I'll look harder.
Happy Blogging!
