Gift tag

Just thought I'd have a quick pop in and show a gift tag I made last week for one of the girls who has given up working behind the bar in our local pub, and as poor hubby is 'forced' to  go there every Thursday night when my friend comes over for a 'craft' night, this was what I attached to her leaving present.
I printed the words on card, then cut the tag shape.  The rose is quite large, made from the largest of the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals.
I am entering this at
  Allsorts - Anything but a Card
  Sparkles Monthly - Anything but a Card

I should have been jetting off to Sharm El Sheikh for 2 weeks sunshine tomorrow, but following the Russian plane crash 2 weeks ago, the holiday was cancelled last week - and after Friday nights horrific shootings in Paris, it makes you wonder how these terrorist's minds work to create such carnage.

That's all for now,
Take care,  Avril xx

Beautiful tag, you are naughty driving your poor hubby out of the house to the pub every Thursday. Sorry about your holiday, the events of the moment are all very depressing. Hugs, Valerie

A beautiful tag Avril, the rose looks great.
Hope you enjoyed the craft fair today.
Your holiday wasn't meant to be this time, and after recent events in Europe I am so pleased you are safe.

A lovely tag Avril & I'm sorry your holiday got cancelled but given the state that the world is in I'm happier knowing you are safe. Here's hoping that the next time you manage to get away!

Shame on you for driving your hubby out of the house!!!
A beautiful tag and the words make it so personal and that flower is glorious.
That is such rotten luck that your holiday was cancelled. I cannot make sense of any of it, whether a Tunisian beach, a plane, a city .... it's all beyond reason. Hope you manage to get a breakaway to somewhere.

What a gorgeous tag! So sorry to hear about your cancellation - it does pose a question for sure, although why they call themselves an army when all they do is pick on innocent people I don't know! Hugs, Chrisx

Whenever I visit your blog Avril the word that comes to mind is elegant! Always! A beautiful tag. Hope you have lovely time off anyway and get to do some 'holiday' type things - sun doubtful however! Yes, the terror is unspeakable. Nicola x

Beautiful tag. Your rosé looks so pretty. It's almost real.
Sorry to hear that you canseld your trip.
It is very scaring how our world looks now.
Why do people do these things. They are so young
and have such bad habbits.
What can we do to stop this.
I keep on creating and am glad to see that you do the same.
Thanks for showing Anneke
