Thanks so much!

Hello friends
Brhhh - still jolly cold!  
Today's card is featured in this month's edition of Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine.
The ever so lovely Bitty Blossoms are featured.  
The papers are Carta Bella - Traditions  designed by Samantha Walker who also designs dies.
A very simple design - tucking tags behind a strip of paper.
The quality of the paper is superb, very thick - much like cardstock.  I love the colour tones
and the natural marks in the papers, all helps with that vintage look.

I'm trudging through snow to get to my studio/shop - still lots of work to complete before 
the end of the month and that shop window to do...good job I thrive on being busy!
I have found an item of furniture that I want for the shop window, fingers crossed it isn't
too big - I'm collecting it this morning so hopefully photos very soon.
Take care friends, wrap up very warm.

I'm not a great lover of tags, but this card is really pretty, and beginning to win me over. Sorry you are still snowed in, just to rub it in, we've had none here in Ireland. (Unusual, but very welcome)

Hi Christine. Love the tags on your card today. I must admit before i started following your blog, tags were just something to stick on gifts but I seem to be using them on my cards as a feature more and more. So thankyou.
Looking forward to seeing what item of furniture you've bought.
Keep warm and safe everyone.

Morning Christine, lovely card and papers today, love the vintage feel to the papers. Well we now have snow in Cornwall for the 1st day, Tilly spent the night playing in it as she's never seen snow! She came in covered in it. Emma

Morning Christine

This is such a pretty card you've made, love the colours and papers you've used. The tags are a great idea to add, think you're gradually converting us to be tag makers too!

Hope you have a good day in your studio, and your new purchase fits in well.
