Proverbs

Hi everybody.
It's November already, winter is creeping up fast and the nights are getting longer. That means more time for knitting, crafting and other nice pastimes.
This week our theme is proverbs. 

This is my take - a bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush. Not very original, but I was tired after the fight with my little devil....(the story is on my blog)

I distressed a tag cut from speciality stamping paper with gradient colours in tumbled glass, Victorian velvet, wild honey and Forest Moss. The background stamp is from LaBlanche, the sentiment has been hand-written. The birds were cut with a MS punch. I mounted the tag onto some lace and a second tag made of black card. 

 

 


Here's wishing you all a good week. Take care, and thanks a lot for coming by.
Valerie
