One Tag, two tags, three tags more!!!

I love this weekend, as it has 2 Bank holidays, and Friday seems like Saturday and Monday seems like Sunday, and by the time Tuesday comes along, I am confused, and wishing it was Friday again!!
Last week while I was teaching the workshop at Pickleberry Crafts, we got the opportunity to use Tim's new On the Edge dies, and I cut several tags with the dies. I positioned them so the dies cut the short end, and then cut off the tops, so I could bind it together. They have sat on my desk for a few days, and finally I got round to doing something with them. I distress inked all of them, back and front, and got very inky doing it too! All the tags are stamped with Mr Holtz's stamps, and I used the flourishes on each side inking with separate distress ink colours on each tag and each side. Not sure if this makes sense, as my brain seems to be fried today!
Then I took some of his words and sayings and stamped those too, on the front of each tag. A couple of the new Idea-ology embellishments, and some ribbon, finished it off. The little embellie at the bottom is a Vintaj piece due in this week (she says hopefully :)

The pictures are taken with Mal's new phone which takes great pictures... can see me "borrowing " it just to take photos of my artwork! lol
I hope you are having a relaxing Easter, and as a gift to everyone we have FREE SHIPPING worldwide on the website this weekend, all weekend!!!
Happy Creating!
