ATC and Tag

Hello everyone and Happy Weekend. Lovely blue sky here and a promise of nice weather for this week. So pleased that you found time to pop call in at Jumbled Crafts--thank you.

The challenge at Wicked Wednesday this week is to make an ATC with the theme Beautiful Blooms. I usually try to make my wicked side come out on the challenges at WW but I couldn't think of anything wicked to say about blooms.

A couple of days ago my husband's took some photographs of some the flowers in our garden and lots of them had insects as well. I used this one for my ATC and I liked the quote so added that as well.

At Tag Along they want us to make a tag that is Vintage Inspired

The background paper and the wonderful image are digital downloads from With Wild Abandon and the flower is cut with a Tim Holtz flower die. The material for the flower was sent to me by dear Valerie--thank you Valerie.

A couple more of the photographs Vic took on Thursday after it had been drizzling

Have a wonderful day all

Love Chrissie x


  1. Fab blooms, lovely bright colours. Perfect vintage tag for their first anniversary celebrations and ooooh that spiders web looks stunning

    Blue skies here at the minute too, hope it lasts xxx

  2. Love your ATC and tag, they are both lovely. Hard to think of blooms as wicked, that's true! They are wickedly beautiful, as are the wonderful photos, especially the one with the spider's web, just magical!
    I have the little fabric flowers you sent me on a mirror, they look lovely. Have a great day, I am off for my walk here! Hugs, Valerie
