"Birthday Tag"

Good Morning Blog friends, well here we are at the start of yet another week.  Wonder if this one will last any longer than the last one.  Is is just me or are the weeks getting shorter??.....................!!
Thank you for taking time to call in, I love to have you visit and leave all your lovely comments.

This is cleaning day here and it has to be done.  I strip the bed, do all the cleaning, every corner right through the house on a Monday, then on Friday I just give a quick clean for over the weekend.    Last Friday I did not get it all done, I went to meet Hazel, far more important than house cleaning.   Not all done Friday then the boys being here most of  the weekend there seems to be crumbs and bits all over the place, today it has to be done.

Today`s card is one I made for a friend for her birthday cross between a card and a Tag.  
It does open like a card, knowing my friend I thought she might want to hang it up.

Base card 4 x 6 white card
I cut out two borders in white card using Spellbinder Border Dies
A piece of white lace I threaded pink ribbon through
Hanging loop and bow same pink ribbon from my Ribbon Box
Flowers cut with Bitty Blossom Die
Leaves Crealies Die from Joanna Sheen

That`s it for today, off to get that cleaning done 
Thank you so much for stopping here for a while I really do appreciate it

  11. Hi Patricia,
    such a pretty card today. Love the idea of the tag, and of course there's pink in it.
    I hate housework, but then it's got to be done hasn't it.
    I would rather craft much more than the boring old housework.
    Have you thrown the dreaded phone at the wall yet. Lol.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Thank you for your sweet comments whilst I was AWOL I am getting better and am going to drive again this week , The knock on my head made me feel so sick all the time but it has eased off , still have awful headaches but am improving. I have missed so much around blog land . I have had a peek at what I have missed of yours , you have been making super creations. I have lots of housework to catch up on too , I hate it when it mounts up . Biggest hugs Elaine
