Apologies and Tuesday Taggers

I'm not being a particularly good blogger this week. Please bare with me. This week it has been parent's evenings at work, so I've been at school quite late on 3 days. I've had three new children in my class, it's Steve's 50th Birthday tomorrow, I've been to the dentist and the car has been to the garage (neither of which were serious, thank goodness). I've also heard from my Neice who is currently in Antartica and has just returned to Scot base safe and well after 6 weeks in the field. I was getting withdrawal from emailing her! I'll explain more when I've got more time. I've been working on a project too, which will be revealed on Monday. Make sure you pop by and take a look!
Anyway, here is a rather hurried entry for Tuesday Taggers where the challenge is to include a bit of jigsaw. I sprayed a tag with Moonshadow inks that I've recently transferred into spray bottles. I used the hero arts leaf flourish (bet you are getting bored of it!), a quote from the internet and some tiny blank jigsaw pieces I have had in my stash for aeons. They took some serious digging out! Just realised I've done a quote mentioning cards on a tag. A bit incongruous but I liked the idea my cards become a record of history!

Gorgeous tag! I love the vintage look. I bet those tiny jigsaw pieces were fiddly to work with. I've had no time for crafting so far this week, but I'm hoping to get a tag or something made before Tuesday. x

Hi Sally

A gorgeous tag. Love those little jigsaw pieces and your colour combo.

I too have been a very bad blogger this week. (Shame on me). Need to make amends tomorrow.

Love Jules xx

Oooh Sally, I love this, you know my fettish for tags. The jigsaw pieces look fab and the moonshadow ink is perfect. I for one could never get bored of those flourishes.
It's a week for birthdays,I hope Steve has a great day and don't work too hard.

Hi Sally

Another bad blogger here, but is this challenge organising time consuming - fun mind yoy, I'm not complaining.

Great tag and think I can see that must have Hero leaf and swirl card peeping round the edges.
