TAG TUESDAY....BEADS, BUTTONS & BOWS...

Hi Everyone,
I have been taking part in Tag Tuesday since the beginning and always forget to post my tag on my blog as I add it to Tag Tuesday blog...Told you I was getting old...So now I am going to try to remember to add to both!!! so I know today is Thursday but that's fine as you can add it throughout the week... The reason for today is I had a post done already for Tuesday.....  so the theme this week is Beads, Buttons & Bows...

 For the background I stamped the images from the fabulous Oxford Impressions set dress forms & corsetry I love their stamps you get so many in a pack too....
 I distressed the background with my favorite Tim Holtz ink Frayed Burlap....
 Thank you so much for your visit today.... I hope you like it.....

I love the vintage look of this so pretty and it looks really authentic. It reminds me of my childhood sitting on the floor of my gran's sewing room, watching her feet on the sewing machine treadle and playing with scraps of material and little cards of buttons. Oh, dear, they would be a choking hazard today and no little child would be allowed to play with them!!! Julie Ann xx

Beautiful vintage tag May. Love the old fashion button card and a touch of lace here and there. I like that "made in England" stamp, it feels so cozy and nostalgic.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Katie

Hi May! I've had the best time visiting your lovely blog! Your creative talent never stops amazing me! I love all of your gorgeous tags! They are incredible. I've never been to a workshop that tutors "distress inks or Tim Holtz products". I have bought a few of his inks and I tried making a card once and it was a disaster! LOL! You inspire me to want to try again! I am in love with this vintage tag!
I hope that your enjoying a wonderful weekend!
Hugs, Sheryl
