1st blog post for 4 months - May, June & July swap tags

due to increasingly poor health I've barely crafted since April, but
today I finally thought it was time to update my neglected blog with some tags I've made for a monthly themed swap on DoCrafts forum.
May swap theme was monochrome.

This first tag was made with die-cut card and glittered vellum, glittered shoe topper, butterfly charm, die-cut swirl, black glitter embossing powder, black and white pearls and black and white co-ordinating spotted ribbons.

This 2nd monochrome tag was made with die-cut glittered card,paper & fabric flowers, pearl brads, butterfly charm, white pearls & black and white co-ordinated spotted ribbons.

The theme for June's swap was Summertime.

This first tag is titled ' Lazy Summer Days!' Its made from decoupage, pearl card, butterfly & green glittered border peel-offs, pearls, a sentiment & fibres.

This 2nd tag is titled 'Nasturtium Bouquet', its made from decoupage, holographic card, die-cut butterfly, gems and embellished chiffon ribbon.

July's swap theme was 'Teatime'

This 1st tag is made from free 'Celebrations' papers & toppers from Crafts Beautiful, Fired Brick & Tattered Rose distress inks, a doily, pearls, a glittered brad and  2 co-ordinating chiffon ribbons.

This 2nd tag is made from embossed card, Fired Brick and Tattered Rose distress inks, Toppers from Celebrations paper collection from Crafts Beautiful, brad and organza ribbon.
