GD at Tag you're it!

After last week's busy blogging week, I've been pretty quiet. This was mainly due to my SIL visiting with her husband but I did manage to grab a little crafty time to make this card for the reminder post at Tag You're It!


I was honored to be asked by Tracy to GD for their latest challenge based on this fab tag from Donna Mikasa.


This week I decided to make a CAS card with the CASEd tag, using the following elements, white heat embossed flower, b/w strip, w/c background, black sentiment. The flower is from a Woodware set, 'Doodled Flowers', the foliage from a Uniko set. The colors are from ColourQ and the layout Freshly Made Sketches. The tag is a Poppy Stamps 'Stitched Main Street Tag' and the EF used for the background is Darice, I think. 

It had to be a quick and simple make as we were going to look around The Secret Bunker, a redundant WW2/ Cold War command post. Quite creepy, being deep underground in a concrete bunker with all the old communication equipment and 1960 nuclear warning posters. As a child I don't recollect all the prepare for a hit pamphlets and posters, I suppose I shut it out. It was refurbished in the 70's so my hubby was familiar with all the electronic equipment and we kept loosing him in the display rooms as he relived his Uni days!

OK, that's it from me, but please check out the rest of the DT over at Tag for more fab inspiration.

I'd like to join in over at -
