Foiled again!

A real quick post from me today as I'm still mopping up the tears from this morning's Leaver's Assembly!!! WAAAH!!!! I was doing jus' fine till the children stood up and sang "Somewhere over the rainbow" and it just kicked in and the tears came rollin' down the cheeks, and the more you try to stop, the worse it becomes. Of course it didn't help having my son sat in front of me rolling his eyes because I'd probably embarrassed the heck out of him, but Hey, that's what being a mum's all about isn't it? If not, I've been getting it soooo wrong all these years! Anyway, here's my creative offering for the day - it's my tag for the Tag, You're It! challenge this week, the theme being Fairies. I used a set of the new Dovecraft fantasy stamps, and my favourite current 'ism' - hot foils - I can't stop foiling everything - I love it!! If you fancy a chance of winning a set of your own fairy stamps, just like the ones I used here, get over to the blog, play along with the theme and you're name will go into a hat to be drawn next week and the winner announced on Friday! Good luck everyone, and thanks for popping by! ;o)

Edited just for Penny: Here's the best close-up I could get that shows the foiling - it's quite tricky to photograph this stuff and show it off at it's best:


  1. Lovely tag, very warm and serene feel to it... I hope you don't mind, but I have posted it on my blog to share!

  2. Beautiful background colours and great stamps. I'd love to enlarge the tag to see the foiling!

  3. Lovely, now I can see the beautiful foiling! Thanks for that Anne ;)

  4. WoWzA, Anne, this is terrific!!!

    I just love the stamp(s) and the background. And the foiling is the perfect finishing touch; this tag ROCKZ!!!

    I think I have exactly one fairy stamp ... and I can hear you now, Anne: "but one's all you need, Deb!"

    Wonderful project, as usual, Kiddo!
