Tag Tuesday Theme (use lace on your tag)

 Tag Tuesday this week is to use Lace on your tag, so I hope this fits the theme as lace used top & bottom of this tag

 This was made with a friend in mind who was embarking on a move to Canada, due to her DH's job
she also is a big Sir Timmie fan, so that's the reason for a lot of his products being used on this tag, lots of embossing, glossy accents & stamping, which are her fav products.
I hope you all are having a great Tuesday and thanks for your visit today, lots of Hugs May x x x x

 My desk has been hijacked by a fur ball (The Boss) , I was quite happy making a card, the phone rang and upon my return madam had made herself at home, and would she move, would she not!
 These look tasty can I eat them Curious cat, The thing is she does not normally do this, in fact she is normally sleeping or eating
 They say you are nobody until you have been ignored by a cat well I guess I must be someone!!!
She did eventually get down and took this ribbon with her to play with, although I think she wore herself out because as you can see... No cat in this photo, thats because she was snoozing after a hard days crafting, lol! Hugs May xx
In case you are wondering why I am showing what's on my desk on a Wednesday, This is all down to the lovely Julia over at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/

A couple of cards today using this cute stamp from crafty sentiments

 This little stamp is from crafty sentiments, they have a great selection all so cute that it's difficult to choose which one to have, I even done a little stitching around the edge, the first time for me, I got the sewing machine out of the loft ( well DH did ) after it not being used for over 20 years and it worked with no problems, so I hope to use more often.
 The little tickets are from Whimsy stamps they are great you can get a little ticket die to go with the set there 20 stamps in the pack, so I will be using them quite a bit and also great for Layouts
 The same stamp just different papers
That Craft Place in Eastbourne Lisa the owner has lots of crafty sentments stamps in stock so why not call in and see the little crafters paradise ( my name for it,) if you dont live in the area Lisa has on-line shopping to, www.thatcraftplace.co.uk  Have a good day and thank you for your visit x xHappy Crafting, Hugs May x x x x x
