The last day of February and I can't believe its come around so quickly! Tomorrow is the meteorological first day of spring. Well here the blackthorn is out, the lambs are in the field and the early daffs are in bud, but more of that later.
Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz. Today we would like to see your projects on the theme of -
So, anything with a tag on or just a tag. I went with the simple tag.
I took my inspiration from the latest challenge at Tag You're It, but made it masculine by using cogs and gears instead of flowers.
The cog stamps I got from Port Sunlight a couple of years ago and are by Crafty Roo Designs.
The gear die cuts are a set by X-Cut cut from scraps of gold and kraft and some split pins. The black edge was cut using a Avery Elle die and attached to the bottom of my Poppy Stamps tag die. A simple stamped sentiment from STAMPlorations and some butchers twine with added Copic colouring complete.
Please check out the rest of the DT here for some fabulous inspiration and join in.

My gears connect to each other!
Creations for Males
PS On the subject of the track, we still have a stream running down it and now also around the edges. More stone has been added to raise the level again and in doing so the contactors caused us some problems on Sunday as some visitors were unable to travel down, Al had to let them in the back way. We were not informed that there would be a blockage so could not warn our visitors, just typical! One more thing to add to the ever lengthening list of complaints!
As I mention above the lambs are arriving rapidly now. Here is a photo I took of our first set of twins that arrived early last week.
Mum was very wary and I had to keep my distance, she was the second to lamb here before the rest of the flock went up to the lambing pens. We had our first set of returning ewes with their lambs yesterday but too late for a pic!
