Z is for

Morning all - early one for me today.

Got lots to do in the crafting way. 

So here is my card for today - a tag

z is for Zebra with pearls !!! 

First I stamped onto my tag using the New Clarity Stamp 

Masked the Zebra 

Then using different shades of orange and yellow distress inks coloured the tag

Added some pearls to make a "sun" - definition and a spotty bow. 

I hope you like it and would like to enter it for the following 


Now I can not believe it is Friday again where does the time go????

We are off to the Village Hall tonight to take up our "potato in a bucket" to have
the potatos weighed and the heaviest amount wins. All towards our Village Hall Show tomorrow. 

Got to be up early tomorrow to take our entries up for the judges and doors open 
tomorrow at 2.30 pm :) 

Here is my oldie for today over at Erikas

It is a photo of my youngest daughter and her school friends with a 
Time Capsule that they buried back in the 80''s 

As I say - were does the time go - as it seems only like yesterday 

Thank you all who commented yesterday about Mum and the bath. 

Will try to discuss your thoughts with her although this morning was not the time. 

Thank you for popping in and look forward to 
hearing from you again.

  1. Love your Zebra tag Pen. The colours are fab.
    As for your potato, good luck, hope it is a winner.
    Loving your old photo too, that takes me back. I think we did a time capsule at school too although I now can't remember where we buried it. Happy days!

    Enjoy your weekend and thanks for popping by and sharing an oldie today,

    Hugs Erika. x

  2. Love your tag, the zebra stamp is fabulous.

  3. I love your zebra tag Pen. It's a real eye catcher. A lovely photo of your daughter and her friends. Time capsules are a really fun idea. We live in a cottage dated 1617 and when we had a stud wall built several years ago we put in a time capsule which included details of the village builder who did the job. Barbxx

  4. A great take on our spots and stripes theme Pen, a really clever interpretation, many thanks for joining us at Allsorts challenge this week.

  7. Lovely colours and I like how you have incorporated the pearls into a sun.

  8. I adore that stamp, and appreciate you sharing how you made it. For some reason, I have a ton of trouble understanding masks. They are NOT intuitive to me, but your photos helped me understand how you did it.

    Great choice for word and illustration, and wonderful way to incorporate the pearl(s).
