Lurve Is The...

...Tag!!! Hands up who thought I was going to say drug? Which, I have to say is a fabulous song... anyways... I am in the mood for lurve... oh dear, I am singing again... simply because you are near me.... (you are sooo lucky that you didn't hear that ROFL) Ahem... where was I??? Ah, yes, my latest tag... is lurve themed... I had this little flash of inspiration the other night when I was making my Love Configurations box... and decided to incorporate a few elements from the Duke of Distresses 12 Tags... and I came up with this... rather overloaded... tag.




The base was covered with paper from the Seasonal Stash pad... I cut a Rosette and sanded it a bit to make it look shabby. The Trim was coloured with Peppermint Stick Glimmer Mists and then dried on the radiator... oh you should see the radiator in my room... yak! It would be no good for drying clothes it is so inked up!! *I so want to make a rude comment about drying drawers but I won't... I shall be ladylike... for a change LOL* I know, I should wipe it off but... it looks kind of grungey... which is probably why I like it!


The little heart on the Rosette is made from UTEE. I got this diddily little heart yonks ago and so didn't want to use it... so I made a mould from Mold & Pour and then used Red Poppy UTEE... I made a heap of them at once so I have a nice little stash to grab at... oh and I also whacked some black Dabber over it to grunge it up a bit. The ickle crown is Idea-ology and glue into a raised position with hot glue... oh how I love my new Glue Gun.. tis FAB! The 14th Feb stamping is using my ancient date stamp - which is probably one of my favest bits of stash ever... it dates from 1948 to 1959 - so it is almost as old as Grim (don't tell him I said that will you LOL) The letters are cut from the Lost & Found stack and mounted onto card for dimension and then I chopped some photo's from the L&F stack and popped them behind Film Strip.



So... I did the fair weather dance yesterday and it didn't work!!! Grrrr... the drive is looking even more mahooosive now you know... the nice chaps have been tamping down hardcore stuff and mapping out the lines and edges... but... snow is forecasted for today and if just a few flakes fall, they will cobble up (aha, scuse the pun... cobbles, tis what pattern we are having LOL) the concrete setting and colouring malarkey.




The huge stamp they use is so going to feature here... I cannot wait to stand and watch them doing that... anyways... we are waiting until Saturday to get the concrete down so we will only be a day behind... and... we have to wait 10 days after to put the cars on there!! Ferdy is going to look so smart though so it will be worth the wait. Right... time for bed for me... another late night!!! Although... I have to say... I think I craft better when it is dark outside... maybe it is my inner vampire?? Oh and I almost forgot to say... that pic up there... is a card I made using yesterday's sketch - but instead of using inkyness I used papers... tis all on the Bubbly Funk blog if you fancy a gander... Right, bedtime!!! (ooh, I said that already!!) Thanks for looking... have a fabbylicious day! TTFN
