Moo Mania and Tag Along

Hello from a beautiful sunny NE UK Coast. We are still decorating but I took time out to do a bit of crafting and will maybe take time out for a little walk as well as the weather forecast for tomorrow is awful. Hope it is lovely where you are and thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts.

This time at Moo Mania and More the theme is Feathers. The 'and more' means you don't have to add a moo at all as it is anything goes so long as you follow the theme. I combined this challenge with Tag Along as there the theme is Wings.
I do love joining in both of these challenges so I am sure they won't mind that I made a '1 for 2' this time.


This large tag started out yesterday when I found a beautiful crow's feather on the way to the car boot sale. The trees along the road are full of Crows Nest and the noise is quite scary at times. They also visit our houses and sit on the television aerials. We had to get ours moved as it was splitting the wood it was fastened to. They are such powerful birds. It is only recently that they have moved nearer to housing estates and busy roads so I thought the frontiers quote was apt.

The feather on the tag is the one I found-the bird is an image I found on Google and so are the background trees.

Have a great day

Love Chrissie x

Ooh, what a haunting tag - it's really beautiful, Chrissie! Love the subtlety of the colour blending in the sky, and the tree and crow are wonderful images. But it's that glorious feather that deserves centre stage - fabulous!

What a great tag, Chrissie, with the big crow sitting on the tree with his feather, and I really like the blues and blacks you have used here too, very effective.
