I am so late - I left at about 8 o'clock for some errands -I hope was back 10-ish and I have just arrived back. The Dr (due for a blood test) was closed ??? The post office was backed out, the electrician couldn't fine the bulb I want and the optician was ages taking care of one 'person'  - I feel like going back to bed now!!!
I didn't dare post this earlier as my Google mail has changed and seem to have connected itself with my blog and keep trying to upload all my images in my drafts. I have been doing research this weekend and the advice given to a few people on forums is 'Leave it alone - it will sort itself out when it's ready' - not very helpful but what else can I do ???

Basic Grey...................make a Tag

Hi everyone and thanks to all of you joined in with our 'Flowers'  Challenge.  Do check back later to see who is the lucky winner of the Simon Says Stamp $25.

And now on to our new challenge, we would like like you to create a


just remember to use a Basic Grey product and let us know in your post what that is.  Oh, and don't forget that we are also now limiting the number of entries that you can make to three. 

As always, our wonderful sponsor, Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore

(Please note: This is a voucher code that entitles the winner to a $25 saving off their order in Simon Says Stamp, P+P charges will still apply unless the conditions are met to earn free P+P, please check here if you would like to see these conditions)

The Basic Grey papers I have used this challenge is Serenade and the base is Tim Holtz Tag
I have used Stamping Bella Luccile send Oodles of Love (a perfect size for a tag) and coloured her with Copics.
I have edged the tag with a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles and added a Memory Box Twirled Heart Border. The sentiment is part of the Luccile send Oodles of Love and stamped on Bazzill Vellum - I used Memento Ink but it is not very noticeable  - I think I shall remove it and add one using Versafine. The brad attached with the ribbon (from stash) is Amereican Crafts Brads
