*My (self-imposed) Blogiversary Challenge is to create a new tag using the same; stamp sets, colour palette and materials/thematic elements (hopefully getting more crazy/creative over time) as the ones I used in my first post and the first tag I made.


  1. Another stunning creation!! I don't always have the time to comment, but want to let you know that I love your work!!

  2. What a great self-challenge... and what a stunning tag! I'll have to travel back in time to see the first. (We're almost exactly the same blog-age... I'm just a week younger!)

  3. Hey, you crazy chick! I've been stalking your blog for quite a while, and don't know if I leave a comment all the time, or if I ever have! But suffice it to say, your work is fantastic, and I've learned so much from you. Love your format, and every single thing I've seen you create. What a great idea to make a tag like this each year. I'm going to have to go back and see the others for comparison when I get some more blogging time.

  4. PS You are a very patient crafter to take those step by step photos. So fascinating to see how you make stuff!

  5. Every time I visit your blog I learn a lot of things: technique, tips, ideas... Wonderful as always, thanks for sharing wiyh us your creativity!BArbara

  6. First time I visit your blog and I have already fallen in love with your artworks. Where do you take all these ideas? Do you make them up yourself?

  7. As for me, it looks like an old ticket. Such things always appealed my attention, because I guess, that they have something special. Do you agree with that?
