Back into the swing

Not having done much paper crafting recently, I'm getting myself back into the swing and came up with the following tags using a couple of stamps that have been in my stash waiting for me to play with them :)



This is a lovely random stamp which I've put onto a gloss card background.



I love the water droplet stamp that I've used for this background

And finally a belated congratulations to my mum and dad on their 60th wedding anniversary - what an achievement!  They've also just connected to the internet for the first time in their 80s.



Don't forget you can click on the images for a closer look.

Congratulations to your parents Carol - we have another 2years to go to catch them up.
Both tags are beautiful and I love the edging on the first one. I have produced nothing but knitting for weeks now and must get cracking on some serious creativity very soon.

Nice tags...like the woman on the 2nd tag...fab stamp.

Wow - that's getting back into the swing with a vengeance... two stunning tags - love the glossy one, and the combination of that quote with the bubbles and the mermaid is just perfect! And congratulations to your parents, and welcome to t'Internet!

Fabulous tags, Carol. That bubbles background is stunning - I thought you'd added some glass pebbles - it's so 3D.

Beautiful card for your parents. Congratulations to them.

Lovely, Carol and yes, I love that water droplet/bubble stamp, too. Who makes it, please?

Lovely work and lovely colours. Congratulations to your Mum and Dad! Even longer than mine have so far managed. Hope they cope with the internet, too - it's such a useful tool if you don't let it rule you. A whole new world for them - am seriously impressed x

Was going to say I love the colours on the first tag but then the second one came up when I scrolled down and I love the colours on that too. Love that image on no 2 as well.
Gorgeous work as always Carol.

Wow, many congratulations to your parents Carol. I thought my OH and I were doing well reaching our 40th last November! The card you made for them was lovely and I bet they treasure it. Love your fabulous tags. The colours are beautiful on both and that bubble stamp is amazing. It's so realistic!
