Needle and Thread

It has been a busy week as I said in my previous post so I won't ramble on about it here but I finished the ironing(boring) and then felt I could find some crafty time so ran into my room of craft and with time not being on my side and I made this quick tag for the Tag Your It challenge this week which is Needle & Thread.   The tag was cut from a background I had made previously with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, can't remember which ones but a mixture of the pinks I would think judging by the colour.
Have to say that these stamps were already on my desk so I didn' even look at anything else just used what was to hand for quickness so I stamped a flourish -Tim Holtz-onto the tag and then, following the flourish ,I stitched in linen thread. I used a stamp set from Stampin' Up! Vintage Vogue - just love this set- and stamped and distressed the small flower and also stamped a background flourish, the butterfly was from another Stampin' Up set which I stamped and then punched out with the matching punch.

I was pleased with the result sometimes things do come together in a rush lol.

I shall be joining in the June swap over at Tag Your It and will email for addy after I have posted this.

Bye for now
