Its Tuesday so we have a new challenge at TRY IT ON TUESDAY.
The new challenge is to make a tag, and the theme is HEARTS and FLOWERS.
Now this week is a bit different, we are having a blog hop all of which involves collecting letters from the Lovin' ink shop where you see the heart which looks like this...........
and can be found on this page
You will need to visit every member of the Try it on Tuesday team to see their tags and also find out where to look for the hearts. Leave a comment on their post and once you have visited the last one work out the anagram and go back to TRY IT ON TUESDAY and email the TT email addy with your answer.

So why would you want to do all this?

Well the prize for this week comes from Lovin' inks very first set of limited edition stamps - Compos Match box and wait for it..........

The project these stamps were launched with - the gorgeous bug box - the actual one that was in Craft Stamper designed and dreamed up by the fabulous co-founder of 'LOVIN INK', Michelle or Midnight Crafter . Michelle is quite modest and does not believe anyone would want to win her work, yeh right!!!????..... however the rest of us know, it is a gorgeous piece we would all love to get our inky mitts on......

You should have come to me from Emma

So here is my tag.... I made my tag using distress inks, stamping swirls and hearts onto whilst it was still just damp, for that misty aged feel.... i printed out a vintage lady onto vellem, mounted it onto gold card, stuck that, vintage lace, paper flowers that i coloured with distress inks, and a grungeboard heart, that i inked, triple embossed and stamped into whilst hot.... all onto my background tag.

Here is a close up of the lady, flowers and heart..... and also a real close up of the heart... you can see it says 'LOVE'.... aarrhhh how sweet..... OMG whats come over me?

your next stop Janet I am sure you'll have great fun on this hop and be totally inspired by what every member of the team has made.
