Lots of Surprises and "T" is for Tag!!!


Royal Wedding

Hi Everyone--I have just created this tag for Tag Tuesday and it includes a London postmark and crown. Delicate lace, crinkly seam binding, and toile-inspired paper complete the look.

I am linking this to Tag Tuesday!

I am also linking this to Rednesday!

I hope that you will read about my news and enter my giveaways!


I just received some exciting news--I will be featured in the spring issue of one of my favorite magazines, Creating Vintage Charm! (If I was younger, I'd be doing cartwheels! lol)

Here is my Fairy Wish tag that will be featured...It is currently available in my Etsy shop!

I have a blog candy giveaway happening at my
Whimsical Musings online magazine. If you'd like
to enter, just click here.

I have 3 Mardi Gras tags that I made in this design
and if you would like to enter the drawing to win
one, just let me know by leaving a comment here.

Here's a close-up.



And, I designed 2 more in this design and I am having a giveaway for 2 of these...If you'd like to be entered into the drawing to win one, just leave a note on this post. I am linking this to Dezinaworld for the "Teeny Tiny" challenge. Why? Because these are the tiniest fleur de lis images I've ever seen!

The winners of my Pink Mardi Gras tags are: Marydon, Sissie, and Jane!

Wishing you all a fabulous week!

NanaDiana said...

WEll, I just found you! I have been directed to you twice in the past few days...so I am sure I am supposed to be here. First by Donna @ MyShabbyChateau...she and I have become very good friends and have lots in common. She told me I MUST come visit you...so...here I am. Your artwork is wonderful...and I see you like fairies. My little "fairies" are live ones and I mostly blog about them...as a history of their young years....but I do have resident fairies in my home and hidey-holes with treasures that the fairies put there. It looks like you are my kind of whimisical gal. I am signing up as your newest follower...and..I am sorry to say...you are stuck with me now! Diana

Lovely post sweetie.

Congratulations on your article coming up.
Did you submit some things?
Maybe some day I will get around to doing that.

Thanks for inquiry about how I am doing. I am fine, just soooo busy. Shop keeps me hopping and not much time to create. About time to stop all the work, and play for a bit. I'm going into bad withdrawal, and have hardly any items in the store.
