Something Completely Different #4 - TAGS

As its the beginning of June (already!!!) Something Completely Different challenge blog have changed thier theme as promised:

"TAGS"any size, shape or colour unless specified within the weekly theme.
So, with tags as our Challenge who better to ask to be Guest Designer for the Month, but, the one and only, mega talented..................
"KATH" pop along to her blog and have a look at her fantastic creations and read her fab posts! We'd all like to say a BIG Thank You to Kath for creating some lovely tags for us and for agreeing to join us this month...So, this week the theme is:-


I was pretty pleased that it went to tags even though I was just getting the hang of the twinchies hehe. Stars & Stipes immediately conjurs up images of the U.S.A for me! I had bought one of those little ATC books that with a military theme & as it was full of American images it wasn't any good for what I wanted it for BUT now its been perfect!!!!

The background is a Sir Tim stamp again and I coloured a few of the diamonds in red. The big star stamp was a freebie in a mag a while back. The flag & striped paper were from the little ATC book. Oh & I swapped the wording reason other than to fit better hahahahaha

I really enjoyed playing this week. The DT came up with such a variety of tags, not all U.S orientated. Some great ideas pop over & have a peep. Thank you for looking at mine ...have a terrific weekend, HUGS XXX
