Time well spent

I worked on my recipe for the Bolton Common today.  I have 3 different ideas ranging from appetizers to side dishes to main dish.  When in doubt I just run it past my official taster, Joe, aka my husband.  So I will share that another day, he is on his third taste test.
In the meantime I made a couple of tags to share with you.  The first one is made from a Stampotique stamp called Glimmering Hope.

I stamped her on old book paper and sewed her onto a tag that had been colored with acrylic paints.  I added a few scrabble tiles to spell out my sentiment.  Then I tied a few ribbons on the top and it is ready to go.  The next tag I made has a bird theme.
I used an old map as the background paper.  The bird is stamped on cork as is the nest.  I used some old paint chips to make the eggs.  Tied some ribbon on the top and there it is!

  1. These are great tags, Rene. I especially love the cork pieces on the second one. Beautiful!
