Hello my Lovelies, great to see you :).
It was my friend Sheila's birthday this weekend,
 I made a tag, the front of the holder I used some
 pretty paper and embellished it with her name
 and a flower.

The back, I used another sheet and stamped
all over it with my new gathered twig and edged
in mowed lawn, Sheila was such a sweety and
bought the 2 Tim's inks, looooooove them.

I dyed the ribbon and stamped on it, curled another
ribbon with wire in it, just to add some contrast.

Used letters, put white paint dots on the corners.
You will have to enlarge the next pics to see them.

I forgot to take pics of the tag, imagine that LOL,
I inked 2 time cards up with the gathered twig,
flicked water all over it, used dot stencil in the
mowed lawn, gessoed a vine stencil add a bit of
green water color to it, cut out a used card for
the sentiment on both sides, I traced the scroll for
the other side and used gold stickles around it so
 they matched..

I inked this side with mowed lawn and broken china,
flicked with water again, stamped all over it,
glued some torn napkin piece's with flowers on it, added
a butterfly and that's it, I've been busy with my friend
all weekend so time to get back to my desk tomorrow.
I'll be playing with my new inks and finish my last triptych.
Thanks for visiting hope you all have a wonderful week.

What a beautiful friendship you both have and we can see that in your creations for your friend.
That tag is so delicious - the colours, the stamped ribbon (oh I love a bit of stamped ribbon) and how creative to twist the wired ribbon in such a way.
The card is also so lovely.
Of course, your friend will treasure those for a lifetime.
Thank you for sharing such a beautiful post with us.

Wow! This is gorgeous work, Dianne! This didn't appear on my list of blogs to look at on my dashboard for some reason so I just found it and I'm so cross that I missed it - Blogger just so confuses me sometimes!How could I miss something like this! You are such a dear friend and you show your love for your friends with such creativity! I love the twisted ribbon too and that lovely little scroll - such beauty, imagination and skill. Sheila is going to be so happy! I hope she has a great birthday! Julie Ann xx
