Maps, charts and diagrams

Hi everybody!
I'm pleased to say my eye is feeling better after the OP, and I can see well, but the examinations unfortunately showed a lot of things that need to be done, so I will be spending more time at the hospital in the near future. They diagnosed a glaucoma, too, so have to take drops and tablets for that - life seems to get more and more complicated as we get older.
Thanks to all who left good wishes.

As I saw this weeks themes I felt rather lost, and then I remembered my trusty A-Z of London, at least what is left of it, and used it as a basis for my tag. I added Union Jacks as bunting, and a quote from Samuel Johnson. 'Tea-time' and the telephone box are both stamps from Artemio's vintage London set. This was more or less a copy of a tag I made before, I think my medication has switched part of my brain off just now!


Then I made a second tag, although I am not sure if I should call it a chart or a diagram - sometimes my black humour refuses to be kept locked up. The tag has beem distressed, stamped and stenciled, and I added some coordinating flowers.



Have a good week, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
Valerie

  6. Love it all, Valerie, esp the way the first has inspired me to take a computer break for an irresistible cup of tea.

  10. Ahaa, I love the London tag of course Valerie; that phone box stamp is wonderful! I don't think your medication has affected your creativity one iota & I'm really glad to hear your eye is on the mend. Bit of a bummer about the other news tho' My old mum used to say, 'Age doesn't come alone' ;) Me & the wee one are off on a new London adventure next month, I will pick you up a new A to Z.
    I think the second tag is lots of fun and the flowers are very pretty :o))
