February tag

Already the shortest month of the year and Tim has released his latest tag for 2015!

And, surprise surprise! The only item on his list in my glue n seal :-(

Oh well, never one to not be up for a little improvisation....I set to & had a rake through various bits & pieces because this is the year that I said I was going to use up some of my STUFF.

I have followed the instructions, just using what I had...dictionary page, free papers, mini playing card for the background - peel off gold frame & tiny hearts & 14, the metal heart has been around since the year dot, just added a gem & wired it to a TH game spinner, coloured a mini heart brad with a Promarker to hold the disc in place at the bottom right corner. The heart in the centre of the frame is another sticker, glitter edged, that if bought on my very first trip to Boston 12 years ago! 
Ribbon & lace scraps are more stash.

Here's a close up, the lace has been coloured with worn lipstick DP /festive berries DI

Another couple of days & we shall see what the new colour for this month is going to be, the cracked pistachio is already on my wish list!
