A whole lot of S's

Afternoon all just back from the Coffee Morning at the Village Hall
a good day. Must re-stock my Get Well cards !!

Here is today's card .... but it is a tag :)

Been working on a tag again for a couple of challenges

I first stamped the design using Hobby Art Stamps.

 Brushed blue over the tag to create the sea and then hand painted
in background seaweed and painted in the shells.

Now the question is S is for Seaweed, Seahorses, or Shells.

Think it has to be S is for ...... Seaweed :)

So added the definition to the tag .... and there it is done.

I would like to enter it for the following


Sweet Stamping Challenge - Tags 

The Craft Barn Challenge - S is for + Shell 

But before I go I thought I would continue with the photos of
Grans House......

Something old to for Erika's Something Oldie Friday

will link it in a bit later. 

Here is a photo of the progress, if you can call it that, from last weeks 

My partners Gran's house before it was pulled down.

 Before as you may be able to see we can see the bungalow where
Dens Aunt and Uncle lives,  in the background

Having the roof taken off....

the size of the new build !!! No longer able to see Den's Aunts garden.

Strange colour of sky

Have a great day 

Thank you for your visit and I look forward to
seeing you back very soon to my blog.

  13. Great combination of S words, nice little underwater scene!

  14. Great Tag and also great minds think alike lol

  15. I couldn't wait to get here to see what you had created this fortnight. I am sorry I haven't gotten here sooner, and believe me when I say your lovely comments have NOT gone unnoticed. You are so generous and kind, and my time has simply not been my own for several weeks, as you may have read.

    I love the S enty you created on the "scalloped" tag (sorry, couldn't help it). Your choice of words was incredible, as was your choice of stamps. I simply adore this entry you created that didn't seem to bother you in the least, but caused fits for me.

  16. So pretty! I feel like it should be turned in to an exclusive wallpaper design! Maybe modern day William Morris?! Love it! Lou x

  17. Great word idea. I love the very pretty colour combination with the pink accents x

  18. your tag also has a scalloped edge, yet another s :-)

  19. A lovely tag and great choice of word with so many S's connected with the sea to choose from.
