Say it with a Tag

We have a very dismal day here today - it feels and looks like winter! I have been doing some relief teacher (supply teacher?) work for my good friend Elaine, who is off playing croquet for the state team - in the rain!  I have had the privilege of dealing with some of the loveliest students over the past three days, and will have them again for another two until the end of the week - they are sooooo quiet! They get on with their work! They are pleasant and courteous! They say 'thank you' to me at the end of a lesson!!!!! Thank you Elaine.

I did however, make time yesterday afternoon to make a card!  It is for a challenge as my notebook tells me that  Annabelle Stamps have a Challenge to - say it with a Tag.  Also, Aud Sentiments are challenging us to make Get Well cards by today. I combined them and used an Annabelle stamp - Lil Michelle - to do so.  The sentiment comes from the same Annabelle set; and today in the mail I got a free stamp of Lil Michelle swinging, as a prize from their March blog hop: thanks Andrea, very cute!

I used the SU Sizzix Big Shot embossing folder - Framed Tulips on a textured commercial card blank.  I added a die cut circle, and then lifted the image up using dimentionals.  I had fussy cut it out after colouring it in with my Copics.  The tag was purchased from a Corporate Express shop, and I ran the copic pen around the edge, and stamped the sentiment on it in Memento Tuxedo Black.  The flower is from a set of Dress It Up Fab Buttons. 

I also got a parcel from Lili of the Valley in the UK today and cannot wait to mount them and ink them up!
