Wild Flowers

Hi there , Shirley-Anne here, welcoming you to my room .
It is a thrill to join Tag Tuesday , thank you , Valerie .

I have been card making for several years now . I began by recycling Christmas cards until I bought my first stamp and the rest is history . I would say that my style is definitely CAS, although I do make some vintage styles with a little embellishing flowers or bling .

Lover of stamping , tearing, embossing , punching ,piecing and all things to do with paper craft. I am a sharer of paper craft hints and tips with several ladies on Tuesdays. I have been card making for 12 years or so but have had my own craft room only the last 10. It is what I describe as organised chaos! I paper craft at night mostly, when Hubby is sleeping .I try to create/blog/research something crafty every day. I am inspired by some of the talented bloggers out there. My favourite colours are from the Autumn spectrum . I am retired business owner/manager. Am married ,3 grown children , many grandchildren.

My Husband and I live in Adelaide , Australia .
Our leafy suburb , Campbelltown has many parks , most of which are a few minutes walk from home .

Tonight I am sharing a tag I want to use on a gift  box which I will fill and present to a male family member . Now I am 100% sure he does not craft  blog browse so it is safe to share .

The theme for this week is Wild Flowers .

Sorry for the glare on first photo .
Will decorate the box later .I just wanted to show how tag will be attached.
Also I have yet to add his name to right side of tag, between the "nails".

The tag itself is  from Kraftyhands,  Love Paper Stack, 190gsm
I punched both  ends of tag with SU punch and ribbon is also from SU.
The paper for the paper piecing is from same paper stack .
The lady bug is from my stash .

Hope you like my first tag for Tag Tuesday. Please if you pop over to my blog and let me know that you have been so I can return the visit .

Catch you all again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne
