T is for Tag and Inchie

Hi All. Hope you have had a good day and managed to fit in some crafting. Thank you for your visit to Jumbled Crafts where I have a bit of a mixed bag for you.

At Every Inchie Monday the theme this week is Gorilla

Not my own drawing . This one I found on a kiddies colouring page and enjoyed colouring it in and then scanning and resizing it

Happy T Day if you have arrived her from Elizabeth's drinks party. You can join in with any drinks related post and are always very welcome by the host.

This is me in Southport having  an ice cream-well it was very hot that day.

And here I am with a mouthful of biscuit in a cafe nearer home. Apparently it has been down a side street for 3 years and we only just found it. Called the Wish Cat Cafe and it is full of wonders

We now have a loyalty card for there so will be going again.

Last but by no means least I have another tag for Tag Tuesday were the theme is Animals this time. Chosen by our own Michele with a prize from Karen at Lunagirl

A large tag with a an animal background sent to me by dear Valerie and a piece of paper painted in gold Aztec metalics and fastened on with gold brads. The cat was cut from a Cat Protection pamphlet. The words and the other cats were added digitally after the tag was photographed.

Love Chrissie xx


  1. Lots of gorgeousness in your post today. The inchie is great, and love the tag with the cats, Elizabeth will love that! I could do with a portion of that ice right now, and the little café you went to is really pretty. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  2. Who's been a busy bee 🐝 then! I have a friend in France who worked with Diane Fossey the gorilla lady, could have welcomed some of the photos that Alan has of his time in Rwanda with the gorillas 🦍


  3. Its a great inchie Chrissie and that gorilla seems to look happy not fierce.
    I loved the cat tag, we once had a cat called Tiger and she was quite a character.
    The tea room looks a little gem, its a good idea to have loyalty cards, especially to pleasant venues like that one.
    Happy T day Chrissie.

  4. Love your cheerful gorilla...and all the yummy pics. Your little cat cafe looks very cheerful and a good find. I love reading your posts each Tuesday, as I don't get out much any more...reading of your cheerful outings is almost as good as going there myself. Dixx

  5. Leave it to you to find the perfect gorilla and turn it into a digital entry. Good for you.

    I LOVE the cat tag, possibly because I am such a cat lover. That cat from the protection brochure is beautiful and looks very well fed.

    But of course, I was in awe of you at Southport. That was much more than an ICE CREAM. That was a meal in a glass. Incredible.

    I was SO glad you took us to the Wish Cat Cafe. It was fun to look around the place and see some of the cute items, like the darling kissing cats. Loved seeing you with a cup and biscuit, because that glass of ice cream was so heavy, I had trouble looking at it (grin).

    Thanks for sharing your adorable inchie, your beautiful cat tag, and your ice cream and drink from the Wish Cat Cafe with us for T this Tuesday.

  6. A lovely post Chrissie, the cat cafe looks great. Love the tag and inchie. Horrible weather here, but last weekend went well. Will put some pictures up later.
    Hugs Wendy

  7. fun animal art projects Chrissie. My, that is one fancy ice cream! The café looks delightful. Love the floral wallpaper! Happy creating and happy T day too.

  8. Such a fun post, and your inchie and tag are fantastic! Now that's what I call an ice cream - please can you let me know where this is in Southport as I'll be happy to go there next time we visit, well it will probably be a hot day when I visit too ... lol 😉. The café you found in your home town is wonderful, definately somewhere to visit again too - Happy T Day! J 😊

  9. Loving your cat tag-and wow that ice cream looks delicious-and loving that big cup for your beverage too-the cafe definately looks like an awesome find for more visits
