Recently I met up with a few of the girls from
Alys crafty challenges (FB group)
and I was luckily enough to be shown how to use dyluison inks 
and made some tags
Both started of as white.
I sprayed each with various colours of dylusions.
I also embossed a piece of acetate
cut to the same size / shape as tag
 I added a heart cut from a piece of hessian 
and then tied the acetate tag to the other with a piece of "string"
To the bottom one I added a piece of ripped newspaper
and a die cut tree and finished it off as the other one
tied a piece of "string" though the hole of the tag
Thanks for taking the time to read please come back again,
and see what new challenges /  creations I have made

lets start at the beginning.....

I started card making about 10 years ago, when i developed alopecia,   there was a suggestion it could be due to stress,  so i thought i would give it ago as people said it was relaxing.....
I started with a kit or two, then a box, then a small cupboard,  well there is no room in the garage for the car now !!!     I love to make cards and also scrapbook - when I can find photos  to do pages.
I like to see the looks on peoples faces when you give them a handmade card, and when they look through my scrapbook pages
