Tag and Atc

Hello to everyone who drops in to Jumbled Crafts and thank you for all the wonderful comments on my posts--always appreciated.

Still plenty of time to join us at Artful Times for the badge, button or brooch challenge--anything that fastens with a pin. It finishes on Thursday evening.  Hope to see you there.

Had two walks yesterday as we will be watching the first day of the snooker finals today and then the last day tomorrow so won't be going far. May have to have a brisk walk along the seafront to the Spa as there is an Elvis weekend there and a competition to find the best Elvis--they are everywhere in town in various costumes and some look more like Elvis than Elvis did :)Well the Elvis I remember when I was 15.

At Tag Along this week the theme is by the seaside-good for me for sure.

I sponged the tag with various colours then added the picture of my home town. I got the picture from a brochure we picked up when we went to see a exhibition of Railway Poster--I just love those.

I found the shell and pebble with a hole on the Bridlington beach so added those as well.

Now to Wicked Wednesday where the theme is Taurus

I am married to a Taurus, though he is on the cusp with Gemini so has some of their traits as well. Think I will stick this in his birthday card and see what he has to say about the quote :)

Have a wonderful day.

Love Chrissie x

  9. These are wonderful Chrissie, we used to alternate between Bridlington and Scarborough for our holidays when I was little so this brings back great memories of sitting on the sand in a swimming costume and a cardi lol. By the way Star Wars day is the 4th of May - May the Forth - get it - May the force be with you groan :-) xx
