Tag, Free Papers and a FAB award!

Friday already?? This week has just flown by, and yet so much has happened I can't remember the details! However, I have had some chance to play with my stash this week - not a lot I grant you, but what little time I did have, Oh Boy, was it fun!! I was sent these papers by Nat of Craft Buyer to give away on the Tag Challenge blog. The papers are called Allsorts and they are sooooooo luxurious. They are fabulous designs but the quality is just superb - they have a satin finish and are gorgeous to work with. Here is the sample tag I made - probably the quickest and simplest tag I've ever done. The papers are so gorgeous that I decided to let them do all the work for me!

If you fancy winning a pack of 36 of these 6"x6" papers, pop over to the challenge blog, make an untraditional shaped tag, link it to the blog and your name will go into the pot to be drawn at random, and the winners (for there are two of them!!!) will be announced next Friday! And don't worry if you're not one of the winners because very soon there will be another two packs of the equally gorgeous Christmas papers to give away, but that's another challenge ;o) LOL!!
I also have an enormous cry of gratitude to my lovely friend Dawn who has sent me THE most amazing award. This is the Wylde Women Award (isn't it just gorgeous!!!)

and here is what it's all about:
1. You can give it to one or one hundred or any number in between - it's up to you. Make sure you link to their site in your post.2. Link back to this blogsite ( so Tammy can go visit all these wonderful women.and remember the Purpose of the Award: To send love and acknowledgment to women who brighten your day, teach you new things and live their lives fully with generosity and joy.
So I decided that I'm going to use this award to send to all those lovely ladies that I used to be in regular contact with before I had to go out to work for a living!! One of the best things about working from home was that I was able to keep in touch more often. These are some of the ladies that I miss so much since my home job ended:
And there must be hundreds more, but blogger seems to be playing up today and it's already taken me 2 hours to prepare this much!!!! ARGH!
Hope you're all set for a fab weekend - I know I am!!! Thanks for popping by! :o) xx
