Forgotten Friday 12- Monarch Tag

Hi folks, well it's Friday, so it's time for my Forgotten Friday post again. How quickly did this week go? I had a lovely time on Saturday at Alexandra Palace, meeting my  CSQ friends at the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show. I also got to meet some of the Chocolate Baroque Guild members too, whose names I know, but I had never met in person before. It was lovely to meet you girls. It is always a big treat to meet up with Jo, Lesley and Elaine, who I rarely see. We talk all of the time, but this was a great opportunity to catch up face to face. We also managed to fit some time in spending money on crafting goodies too!

My craft room is full to the brim already, but there is always something new coming along that is a 'must have'. Don't you know that feeling? Fridays are a great chance for me to use something that has been lurking unused for a while, and has been neglected, because I've been using my new stuff. This week, I've chosen too use a little bit of both again, some new, some old. I have used a beautiful Monarch Butterfly stamp that I have had for many years, I don't know when I bought it. It doesn't even have a makers name, but I think I bought it from Creative Expressions. I've also used an unused stamp from Stampendous, 'Wishes take flight', I can't believe I haven't used this, considering my love of butterflies! My new items are a large Cling stamp, again from Stampendous of a Dahlia, it's gorgeous! and some of the new Fresco Finish paints from Paper Artsy. I raided my paper stash for a piece of paper from Basic Grey to finish the tag, adding some organza ribbon at the top.

I hope some of you will find time to join in with me this week. Have a look through your forgotten stash, make a project, and leave a comment for me. I'll pop over to your blog to take a look. You've got a week, see what you can come up with! Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

A beauty - mine has Creative Stamping 2005 HH1120H marked on it but I think you're right that it is Creative Expressions. I love what you have done with it & how you have used in conjunction with a number of others.

Some weeks are like that - mine has been so hectic and still is until Sunday evening but hope to come up with a card for your challenge. This tag is lovely and that dahlia stamp looks really good, and the fresco paint, and ... - all of it really.

Wow, this is lovely Buddy. I love the dahlia image you bought on Saturday and the butterfly is gorgeous. I still haven't found time to try out my Dylusions.

Last Saturday was a great day wasn't it. It just goes too fast!

Hi Judith - thanks for continuing to encourage the use of neglected items (which I'm sure we all have hidden away).  Here is my contribution for this week
