Tag, You're It!, Sunday Stamper and Make a Moo or Two! Phew!

What an emotional week it's been for me. My eldest went off on his school residential trip on Wednesday and, if you're a parent you will know exactly what I was going through. I knew in my heart of hearts that he was going to be just fine and would be having the most fabulous time, but it doesn't stop you worrying though, does it? Anyway, he came back on Friday and, as predicted, he had a wonderful time and my worrying was all for nothing! I also lost my young charge on Friday - he left us to go to another school so I suppose I am officially unemployed again - for now, anyway! It was quite a sad occasion saying goodbye to him but I'm sure he'll be just fine.

It's also Week 5 of the Tag, You're It challenges and this week my dear friend Sam chose the theme Moo Tag. I think I misinterpreted what she had in mind and I came up with this:

there was great temptation to go and stick it on a bigger tag when I saw what Sam had done, but then I decided I actually like it just as it is, and guess what, it's got Gold lips which suits this weeks Make a Moo or Two challenge so I thought I'd link it to there too!

Then on my travels I spotted the Sunday Stamper challenge this week is Two Little Boys so I went off and made this:

The stamp is my own two little boys which I made from a photo I took last year on the steps at Brixham Harbour. I made the tag first, then I made a seperate Moo. I completely soaked my card in Winter Jasmine Gold stuff (I am hopeless with labels, honestly - I mean that sparkly water-based painty stuff that you can daub or spritz) and I edged it with gold EP. Then I looked at the two and thought "Ding Ding.... and Idea!!" and so I mounted the Moo over the tag giving it dimension with some sticky pads and mounted the whole thing on some black/gold spritzed card, thus resulting in another Moo Tag
It's Bank Holiday weekend, so naturally the Monsoon Period has started!! Tut! Bang goes all my plans to get out in the garden. Hope you all have a fabulous BH Weekend, and Thanks for popping in (ps - have a go at a moo tag while you're at it!!! LOL!!)
