Itching...! And a New Class!

Hello friends,
Thank you so much for all your kind words yesterday, my family and I truly appreciate it.

Now, what do I have for you today?
A tag!  
I was itching to demo this on TV and never got to it.  In fact, I was going to do this as a step by step tutorial post with the kit I had left over only to realise I had left it behind at the TV studio! 
Instead I will explain - I've used a regular luggage tag stamped with embossing pad (Versamark)
and using the script texture stamp available here.  I then sprinkled on Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powder - Lapis Pearl and heat set.  I cut/embossed the smaller rectangle from cream cardstock using Card Creator - Fancy Postage Stamps - ink edges.  Using No.3 die from Matting Basics A, I cut/embossed a piece of red striped paper.  Assembled and adhered at a jaunty angle!
 The pretty green frame and gold foil 'Worth' is from Jewel Framed Sentiments and yes...
those tiny polka dot flowers - Homespun.  The keys are great for that extra touch and appropriate 
for an 18th, 21st or new home project.
Talking of tags....
It's a Christmas Tag Class.
Please let me know if you have problems reading the embedded document,
always happy to email across details.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, it is very warm here, a little too warm!
I know I should not moan because a lot of you have rain!  I wish I could parcel up sunshine.
Take care friends.

Hi Christine, Love the tag, was a pity you were unable to demo it on C & C. but there is always another time to demo your special tags on TV.
The class sounds just great, wish I lived closer so that I could attend. I have tried very hard to arrange things so that I could come down to the weekend one, but alas I'm not able to , hope things work out for another time. Crafty best wishes, Carolyn. x

What a pretty tag but then all your tags are. Thank you for the explanation of how to do it. I have just ordered the script stamp and looking forward to using it.
We have had a nice day up till about an hour ago and it is spitting with rain now. Ah well it is still quite warm.
Hope you enjoyed your day.

Hi Christine, your tag is so beautiful, love the script and the colouring, the design is wonderful too. It has been warm and muggy here with lots of showers, neither one thing or the other. Crafty hugs, Anne x

HiChristine really admired your tag when seen on C&C. inspired me to make a set of tags to give as gift for my daughter and son-in-law

Hi Christine,
Another lovely tag (though I have to say the Butterfly one has to win...well it had butterflies, what else do I have to say!)
I do hope the classes go well and you have lots of fun.
