First Tag Swap

Hi all,

Here is a pic of my completed tags for my first tag swap which the lovely Louise had organised.

I was suppose to be meeting the ladies from our craft club to play tonight but my back has given way again after almost a year and a half since the first occurence of my back problems. It is so frustrating not to be at my best but hopefully after seeing physio this coming Friday I will be more mobile. I have a big weekend coming up with our craft club workshop on Saturday in the shop and my future sister in laws hen weekend so I really want to be back to myself for that. So ladies hope you had a great night and sorry I could not be there, looking forward to seeing you on Saturday.

This swap was great fun to do. I decided to make all of the tags individual for this swap although the base of them all are all nearly the same. 4 of the cards are done on a corrugated card base and one is done on plain card. All were primed using pearl dabbers, alcohol inks and glimmer mists, copper ink and distress inks. Each was embellished differently using a variety of products and techniques. I hope my tag partners are happy with them and I am going to send them out randomly by putting them all in their envelopes and putting the random names on each. I will put up a more detailed slide show too so you can see the backs which I mostly kept quite plain. They are being sent all of the world to their new homes.

Can't wait to see everybody elses tags!

Thanks again to Louise for organising.

Ooooooh I can't pick a favourite! They are all so gorgeous! Thank you for playing along with my tag obsession. I hope you will stop by for March's swap? Poor you and your back! I know what that feels like. I have prolapsed and bulging discs for 5 years now and I know it is not fun when they act up!!! Hop you get plenty of rest. ((((HUGS)))) xxxx

I want to be in your group!! They are really nice - we decided that last night was very dull without you and we had no fun at all...!
Hope the back gets better soon x

They are all absolutely beautiful! I do like the one with the bird, but then I do like anything to do with birds... said...

Gorgeous tags Cathy! I'm sure the gals you are swapping with will be honored to have them. Was so sorry to hear about your back. I hope you recover quickly. You were missed last night!

See you soon!
