Tags and Gifts

Rain, rain, today so I stayed home and played but couldn't get anything right except these two tags. I made them for the KCUK group May challenge and, being my usual Gemini indecisive self, I couldn't choose which to enter so I put both in for it. The Asian tag is stamped with my new wood mounted Geisha stamp which was a gift from my friend Jayne. Thanks so much Jayne. I love it and may do it better justice another time! Both tags have Distress Ink backgrounds.

I was lucky enough on Saturday to receive another gift, which my friend Caz brought home from her trip to the recent show in Zeist, Holland. Our friend Christine sent it with Caz and I am so thrilled to receive it. Christine is a lovely "Lancashire Lass" who now lives in Germany and we see her in Haagen at Stempelmekka and she also comes back to England occasionally. Because I couldn't get to the Zeist show she made me this lovely book in a box. So well made, with fab embellishments, and  I especially love the index tabs on the pages. A useful treasure I might one day use instead of just having it on show! HUGE THANKS Christine, I really appreciate it and look forward to seeing you again soon.
