Catching up with Tag Tuesday challenges

I have tried hard to keep up with at least one challenge whilst I am in France. Its not easy with the very limited craft supplies I have in my craftavan here, it really is a challenge every week, lol. I'll try and post all the tags I have made for the various challenges, hopefully I won't run out of time before we have to go to the evening vide greniers.

Right here goes then. I am not sure whether I have got them all right, because I usually phone Nick back home in England on a Tuesday to read me the challenge. But, being somewhat scatterbrained, lol, come the next day when I have time to craft, I have usually forgotten most of the instructions....... sigh, old age creeping up on me, no doubt.

The first one I need to post is " THE FACE " from a month ago, yikes!

Next was the POSTAGE STAMP challenge. By the time I got round to making the tag, I wasn't sure about the details anymore. I steamed the stamp off a vintage postcard and then made this tag with it -

But then, after thinking about it for a few days, I thought that perhaps the stamp should be more prominent, so as luck would have it, a letter arrived from Dorthe, and I used her stamp to make a new tag -

Next was the VINTAGE PHOTO challenge -

And this week, it was the LETTER A, where we had to pick a subject which started with the letter A and use that for the tag. Being in France, I had to chose A for Amour, of course -

OK, thats it, no more time, gotta go to the vide greniers. It is the last evening one, boohoo. Wish me luck!
