Digi Art, tag and knitting

Hi All from a very sunny NE UK coast. I expect this weekend will be very busy here as it is a Bank Holiday weekend so I hope the weather stays really lovely for everyone. Thank you for calling in today. I will be watching the Grand Prix and the Rugby League Cup Final today so that's me smiling already. Lots of knitting to do as well while I watch.

This is sheep pyjama case I knitted last weekend while sport watching

At Dezinaworld this time the Cheeky Challenge is old lace. There are lots of free digi images there that June generously shares with all so do have a look and hopefully join in.

This isn't one of June's images it is one I saved a while ago from Google of an old Balinese Grandma. I added lace head dress, borders and a frame

At Go Tag Thursday this time the theme is go bold with colour

I made a double sided tag for this as I just love the bright colours.

I used the colours above straight onto a piece of card then folded it in half.

The stamp is by elusiveimages 2007 and I bought a box of them for £3 at the car boot sale, they had never been used . Four of them are 3,5 x 5.5 inches.

Have a lovely weekend everyone

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Love the double take on the old lac e theme and the double tag is great, too. The Sheep is sooooo sweet, what a treasure. Have fun watching and knitting today, keep cool, hugs, Valerie (It's only 35° today!)

  2. I like your tags very much, this is a clever idea, so simple and so effective. The six stamp pads look enticing too. Sheep pyjama case is wonderful, the sheep has a sweet face.

  3. Lots to smile at today on your blog Chrissie :)
    Your sheep is really fabulous - wondering if you may be creating something again today while watching the sport. (wonder how Lewis will do starting down the grid after that engine change).
    Love your happy tag and wonderful words.
    Have a great weekend.... Gill xx
