Now I am up to date - July Tag Swapping

Here are pics of this months swap tags.  The subject for my Aussie 12 months of  Tags for July is; 'Beauty of  a Tree'.  My swap partner Elaine decided to send me a "money tree".....there is no arguement that it would be a beautiful tree to have in my back yard.  Thankyou Elaine!

Below is the tag I sent to Tanya.  The background is done with alcohol inks; which was my first effort with the product.  I enjoyed it so much that I just couldn't stop playing with them.  The following pic is a card where I also did the background with alcohol inks.  The tree's are embossed with two different embossing colours.

Tag Swapping Catch Up No:2

Here are my June Swaps.  The first tag is the one I did for my partner Elysia in Canada for the June 'Altered Place' Tag Swap.  The subject was 'Everything is coming up Roses'.

Below is the tag I made for Elaine in my Aussie 12 months of tag swap for June.  The subject was; 'Queen for a Day'.  This sweet girl reminded my of  Princess Diana and if there was anyone I would wish to be Queen for a Day, it would be her.

 Below is Tanya's tag which I received as her interpretation of 'Queen for a Day'.  Wasn't it a clever idea to think of the Queen of the Cards?   I love the way the girls in my Aussie 12 months of Tags swap are stretching their imaginations and creating such different tags.

Also; in June I made a giant tag for a birthday swap in my local Papercraft Artists group.  We all celebrate our birthdays in the same month and swap a tag of any shape or size.  I had a great time creating this cute house.  I've only recently purchased the window die and I love it!

Tag Swapping Catch Up

 Hi There Blogging Friends! I am just about beside myself with the frustration that I am having with trying to post to my blog. Things just are not working for me anymore.  I'ts the absolute pits and is preventing me from posting. I've been trying to get a post up here all day and even now it is sloppy and full of frustration.  My curser keeps freezing to the one spot...just will not relocate, the Post Setting dialogue box is open and won't close and the screen won't scroll down.  I am so disappointed as I "used to " love posting to my blog when we had the old styling.  One more day like this and it will be goodby blogging from me!
Below are some of the lovely tags I have swapped over the past few months.
The first gorgeous tag of mother and daughter was sent from  Diane in my Aussie 12 months of tags swap for the Month of May, and the subject was 'Remember Me"....just beautiful!

The tag below was received from Vicki in our Aussie 12 months of tags April Swap.  The subject was 'Red Poppies". Just love the way Vicki has created a jigsaw pattern.  I feel it demonstrates the broken lives of  those who have served our country.

The following two tags are my Red Poppies and Remember Me sujects that I sent to the girls.
