Kings and Queens

Thank you to everyone who left wonderful comments on my tag post last week--always lovely to read them and to visit all the other blogs as well.

This week I let my mind run riot for my tag subject

I used a pack of cards.

The tag is based on the fact that Spades face in the opposite direction to all of the other picture cards. So because, I imagine, they must all be fed-up of seeing just the back of their partners head I let the Spades King and Queen and two others escape for afternoon tea. They had to cover their crowns to avoid detection. Must have been good to chat face to face to with others. Now you know I am completely crazy :)

Look forward to seeing what everyone else makes

  1. I had already thought so,but good to know - welcome to the crazy club! Love your cardy royalties, and thir lovely hats. I never knew that about spades, though, so I have learned something again! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Brilliant Chrissie, that made me smile. Great idea.

  3. I didn't know that about spades - how lovely that you have made them more sociable! Great tag. Carolyn xx

  4. Now I will be looking at a card pack Chrissie.
    Without a doubt I am sure many people want a disguise from time to time - I'm loving that at the moment I have radically changed my hair - not being recognised by some in my small town is indeed very liberating.
    Love your concept and your arty tag!

  5. I LOVE your whimsical take on the traditional kings and queens of a set of playing cards. Those hats to help them remain incognito are too cool. Blessings!

  6. this is so much fun and I love their hats! xo

  7. Please may I join the crazy club, I think I qualify! Great fun, great tag. x

  8. Great idea to use playing card kings and queens Chrissie!
