"Tag Card"

Hello everyone, I know I say this almost every day, I do love that you take time to call in to see what I have been getting up to.  I enjoy your company along with all your lovely comments, thank you very much.
My Goodness another fantastic day here again!!!  Hope it was the same for you.

Had an early phone call this morning from Pearl wondering if I would like to go with her to Perth Race Course.  Gosh! I did not think there was Horse Racing just now!!   No! No! Perth and Kinross Scools were having there annual Cross Counry Sports Run.  Pearls older Granddaughter was running with the P6`s in her school.  What a brilliant morning, hundreds of children, ear shattering noise from them all, air was electric with the excitement.  Primary 6 girls from all the schools ran first.  There must have been a good 200 girls in that group.    Ellie came in 60th and first home for her school.  Have to say it was a great morning.  Pearl had a really bad "melt down" last week, she is really missing her house.  I just hope they get a move on before she has "Nervous Breakdown".  However this morning has certainly lifted her spirits a good deal.  If me going with her this morning helped that makes me happy.
My offering for today is a "Tag"


 I cut a basic Tag approx 4 x 6 from a piece Kraft card
A scrap of card from my Scalloped edged card I posted last week for the background
I died a piece of very white lace with tea which I then made into a rosette.
I found this odd floral button so used that for the centre.  I went looking for lovey oval Cameos I bought some time ago but could I find them........not on your Nellie!!!
A piece of embossed card left over from my Copy Cat card as another layer
I stamped a greeting on a tiny piece of the background card
Made flowers using Crealies Die No CL CF 05           
Cut Leaves using another Crealies Die No CL CS 11 both from Joanna Sheen
A bow of American seam binding that I wet, scrunched and then dried.

My card was made from Bits in my pile from my last few projects that normally would have gone in the bag for the School.  The only thing that I went purposely for was the Seam Binding, the Cameos .................but had to use a button and the scrap of lace.

That`s it for today I do hope you have liked my crafty offering
Thank you for popping in I really appreciate it
