Fifth Avenue Tag and Leather Bottle

Hello friends
I often look at the titles for my blog posts and think they sound somewhat random - 
today's title is a perfect example of that!
The Leather Bottle refers to this pub.
This is where I am taking my Spellbinders™  Design Team Coordinator and her hubbie for lunch
today.  It is Cobham in Kent, dates back to the 1600s and has strong associations with
Charles Dickens.  Nothing like a country pub and a Christmas dinner - yummy!
And now to a crafty project.
This is the tag that I featured on the show on Tuesday made from Melissa Frances - Fifth Avenue papers.
All very pretty, subtle and vintage designs.
The tiny leaves and flowers are from Homespun.

Thanks for all your kind comments regarding the shows - 
it really does help when you know you've got friends tuning in.
Before I go - a photo I posted on Facebook last night....two loves of my life!
Back tomorrow - FDD - they come around so quickly!
Take care.

We have had many meals at the Leather bottle but not since we moved to the island 5 years ago. I'm sure your visitors will love the pub and the location its so typically English.
Have a lovely day.
Cute picture of Bella so looks so comfy.

Morning Christine, What a stunning pub, that is my kind of place.
Love the tag, the vintage feel to the papers is absolutely gorgeous.
Love that piccie of Bella and your GC, I will be emailing some piccies of my 2 cats when I can wade through them all (they are the most photographed cats ha ha).
It is really, really, frosty here today, hopefully the sun will come out later.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine, I watched both your shows and enjoyed your demos inc this tag..It's such a shame you (and all other demonstrators)never get enough time for more demos..It's most frustrating when the presenter is waffling on all about the products!! I'm sure they could speed up that part of the programme!!..Anyway moan was great to see you on the show..:)xxx

Hi Christine,
such a lovely looking place to eat.
I bet they loved that being American.
Now the tag has given me food for thought as I have a wonderful wedding photo of my Dad and Mum.
The tag you have shown is superb.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Hi Christine

Wow!!! What a pub - It would be perfect to go for a lovely Christmas lunch there.

Caught you around 3pm on Tuesday. It was lovely to see you back on Create and Craft. Loved the gorgeous papers you used.

The tage you've created is beautiful as always.
