Tuesday Taggers with silver, gold and purple

Our lovely Ildiko has chosen the theme this week at Tueday Taggers, and she has chosen silver, gold and purple with some stamping. I am beginning to think about Christmas (I know, a bit later than most!) and came up with a tri fold tag card.
 The poinsettia stamp is a cling one from Magenta coloured with distress inks and has a bit of tulip paint, stickles and glossy accents added. I mounted on silver mirriboard. The corrugated card was sprayed with a variety of creative colour sprays (Crafty Notions) in shades of purple and gold. The base card is a pale gold pearlescent card that has been partially run through the cuttlebug with the divine swirls folder. The ribbon was a gorgeous find on our last trip to Sir Stampalot and the tinselly cord was a generous donation from Megan's stash.
This will be my last post for Tuesday Taggers for a while, as I'm taking a break whilst things are a bit hectic at work with post Ofsted and Christmas preparations.
A quick update on the home front. Steve is a dab hand with the crutches now and is able to get about the house reasonably well. He even ventured out to the postbox on Sunday, and on to the patio to help fill up the bird feeders.
Can't have the birds going hungry!

Hi Sal

A gorgeous tag.

Love all the sparkle and the different textures. Great colours.

I am pleased to hear Steve is getting over his op OK and managing to move about.

Is he OK to iron sitting down?!?!?!?

Love Jules xx

Great news about Steve, Sally. I hope he's not getting too bored.
I love the fact that you've coloured your poinsetta purple, it looks lovely, especially with the sparkly corrugated card.
Good luck with all you have going on at the minute.
hugs Lisax

This is gorgeous Sally with lovely rich colours. Like the idea of a tag tri-fold too.

Don't blame you for taking a bit of a break. I'm feeling the effects of a 'stressful' home front at the moment and I'm supposed to be retired, Lol! It's not me that's the problem, it's all the others, Mum's, kids, granddaughters not to mention my OH who has had man flu this past week! Ah well, keeps me on my toes I suppose, Lol!

Take care
Lesley Xx

This is beautiful Sally, was wondering how to incorporate gold and silver together. Great job. Glad to hear Steve is moving about now even if it is on crutches.

Sally this is lovely!

I like the idea of the tag being tri fold - more to enjoy.

Have a good break and hope things calm a little in time for Christmas.
