******Tuesday Taggers Challenge Launch******

Hi Y'all
Well today's the day!!! It's the launch of our new challenge Tuesday Taggers, where we will be challenging you to have a go at making some fantastic projects, not just tags but inchies, atc's, gothic arches, fairy gates, in fact any format which isn't used often enough will get a place on our challenge. This week we thought we'd ease you in gently with a challenge to produce a tag using the theme of New beginings, get the connection? new challenge?
My tag for this week means quite a lot to me as it marks a decision myself and my OH made to start enjoying life again after many years of family heartaches. We got to the stage that even doing good things became a chore and have made a real effort to turn that around. We bought the caravan and our first trip out was a few weeks ago, where we camped by the River Wharfe in the wonderful Yorkshire Dales, not far from where we live but far enough to be able to enjoy every minute of our New Journey into the future. The Text is a Native American Indian proverb which suited the tag and the inspiration behind it.

Stamps - Paper Artsy, Habico, Scene it & Lavinia Stamps
Inks - Tim Holtz Distress Faded Jeans, Brushed Corduroy Pine Needles
Embellishments from Stash
Horse Hair - from a field where we camped!

Come and join us, for no other reason than to enjoy the moment, and to share your ideas with kindred crafters. There will be mystery prize this week for the randomly chosen winner and each winner will be asked to be a guest designer for the following challenge, It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or a seasoned crafter, we'd love you to join us and help spread the joy!

See you over there!
x Michelle

This is stunning Michelle. I love everything about it, the stamping and the wording, just lovely. Good on you for making such a great decision, we all get bogged down by daily life and it's easy to stop smelling the roses. Enjoy every minute.
