Share an oldie Friday, Tag you're it! Tim Holtz style.

Good morning all, it's that time of the week again, sharing an oldie Friday.  It's the day where I encourage you, just for the fun of it, to join me in sharing a past crafty project.  It can be anything that you have made yourself.  All I ask is that you leave a comment below, that way I know that you are joining in and I can pop along to your blog and share the love of all things homemade.
After last weeks scrapbook page today I also have a little something different for you too, a tag project.

I have used;
Inkssential manila craft tags.
PI Acetate sheets.
Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz cling mounted stamps Fairytale frenzy and Urban tapestry.
Distress inks;  Peeled paint, Crushed olive, Festive berries, Fired brick, Tea dye, Vintage photo and Walnut Stain.
Distressed stickles;  Peeled paint, Fire brick and Vintage photo.
Stickles Diamond.
Fibres and charms from my stash.

I created the see through acetate pocket for these tags so they could be given like a card plus they're decorated on both sides, with the acetate you get to see both.  Although I have to admit my sewing machine wasn't too keen on the double thickness at the bottom but I got there eventually.

As my shifts have been change at work I now have every other weekend off, when I do I am working a couple of shifts during the week.  This means that I have this weekend off!  
My youngest has all sorts of plans for me but we shall have to wait and see what we end up doing.  One thing is for sure I shall be sneaking in a little crafting at some point, ssshhh don't tell!
It only remains for me to thank you if you have joined me today, I do love visiting you and seeing your projects too.  Have a super Friday and even better weekend.  Hugs.  s

Hi Erika, this is a fun and different way to use your tags, it makes a great 3d card. I have joined in today too with a real oldie card too.

Glad to hear you're getting a bit more time to spend with your family. The tag card is brilliant, glad your machine made it through the sewing.

A stunning piece of "art work" I really like that idea.
