Mother and Child

Bonjour!

I hope you are all well and having a good week.   I am just recovering from a very nasty shock!!  I decided to have a swim last Friday about 5pm and had done about three lengths when I realised that a viper was swimming along with me!!  I have never got out of a pool so fast in my life - I didn't even realise I was still able to climb out without the aid of any steps!  My legs were like jelly for about two hours.  Oh the joys of living in rural France!

My tag came together very quickly this time.  I found the image on the internet and picked out the pinky tones to embellish it.  I covered my tag in a sheet from the Victorian Classics by Paper Cellar.  I then embellished it using a MOP button tied with embroidery thread, lace trim from my stash and seam binding dyed with Victorian Velvet and Milled Lavender Distress Inks.  I coloured the Sizzix flourish with the same inks.

Thank you all for your lovely comments last week.  I'll be back soon to see what everyone has done this week.

A bientot.
