Tag, You're It!!! Challenge #4

Groooaaannn.... I've got a stinking awful cold and I feel like the lowest of the low this week. Don't you hate it when you can't taste anything, and your skin feels so sore that the slightest touch is excruciating! Well that's where I'm at - along with the horrid nose and hacking cough - Oh woe is me.... :o(
However, another fabulous week over on the Tag, You're It! challenge blog this week, though it appears that so many of us were loathe to put our stamps away for a brief moment. They came out again this week though while I was making the current theme's tag - to incorporate a slide mailer. I chose to use a Sizzix one but I really did struggle with this. I tried several different techniques - covered them with papers, glued and covered them in beadazzles, and eventually I painted one and while I was painting it I remembered a gorgeous mini book I saw a couple of years ago that had been made with a slide mailer - unfortunately I can't remember where I saw it, or indeed who made it, but if you recognise your style in this, please take credit for it with my blessing!

So here is my offering for the Tag, You're It! challenge this week - just go for it!!!


  1. Gorgeous tag Anne, love the colour combo - is that background paper or stamped? very effective.

    I made a concertina tag book a couple of christmas' ago, and put the kids piccies in (mainly to remind the mil exactly who her grandkids were!! lolxx)
