Tag Tuesday (and Mojo Monday)

This week's theme is Goosey:

I coloured a white tag with Stormy Skies and Faded Jeans distress inks.
The background picture and nursery rhyme are from an alphabet book I found in a second hand bookshop last week. Although printed in 1979 the alphabet and illustrations date from 1916 - which you can tell by looking at "J" - for jetty and jessamine...
Buttons, ribbon and metal bird are from my stash.
The large goose has been cut from one of our Henley photos - it's an Egyptian Goose.

Mojo Monday is a sketch/inspiration  resource on Flying Unicorn a site I've just discovered.
This is last week's sketch (I'm working on yesterday's)

Back an hour later...just been for my regular blood test...and yes, I do still have blood..:)

Made using Basic Grey "Marjolaine" papers, stickers, chip stickers and alpha. Other embellies are by Prima and S.E.I. The photos are yet more from our day out in Henley....can you tell we really, really enjoyed our afternoon there?!!!

One good thing about the enforced  "stash diet" is that I'm actually using papers that have hitherto only been stroked and drooled over. I'm working my way through Basic Grey but still haven't dared to use my Graphic 45 collections...lol!

And finally...a second ATC for Penny's challenge..a traditional one this time..

I found these  lovely vintage images on Sweetly Scrapped via Pinterest. Simply added some lace from stash and a K&CO metal embellie ("Madeleine" collection.....yet more papers I've hardly used!).

Hope you're all having a good week...I'm off to have a coffee and do some stitching on a LO before tackling the ironing.....3 days the empty basket lasted....not nearly long enough for my liking...:(

Lovely work Sue. The goosey tag is beautiful, good that you had such nice illustrations and the Egyptian goose is very majestic. Love the LO and Atc, too. Hugs, Valerie

hi Susie
I have just joined your merry band of followers.
We have a few links - I too am 50+ living with my OH, I have a sister who lives in Witney, Oxfordshire and we too had the best dog in the world upto 4 months ago, little Bobby.
I think all that and being a crafter qualifies me to join, dont you haha !
Have a great crafting week.

You have been a busy girlie, Sue! I really like the soft colours of your tag - the goosey goosey rhyme always seemed rather strange to me. That poor old man on the stairs got some pretty harsh treatment!

Pretty ATC for Penny's challenge, those are lovely images.

Hi I'm Maria... said...
