Anything but a card with new sponsors Flonzcraft

Good morning all

I haven't been a very good blogger these last couple of weeks, hardly any visiting been done, bare minimum cards but i have kept my commenting  up to date so i feel quite angelic about that one (check out our next weeks challenge at Fab'n'Funky on that one hint hint) I'm really chasing my tail with lots to do and not much crafty time.  I'd tellyou what I've been doing - but I haven't got the time! and I need to do a HUUUGE catch up post because so much exciting stuff has happened this last week!!

I had scheduled this post and just checked to find it hadn't posted so even bloggers not giving me any help!

Anyway a quick one today with a fabulous challenge and sponsor at

Fab'n'Funky Challenges 

and new stamp company 

.  This weeks hostess is our gorgeous
 with the theme

Anything but a card

A great theme to get your creativity going and our DT girls really pushed the boat out for this one -I was really blown away when I saw the beautiful variety of projects they came up with.  I decided on the easy option of a tag and this gorgeous little vintage themed stamp fit it perfectly I think, and it gave me an excuse to get my messy inks out and have a play.

I really enjoyed making this and might have a play and make a few more tags - perhaps for Christmas, the thing about these style of tag is you can always mount them up and they make a fabulous card and you can get even messier with that option!

This is what I did....

This is a simple lovely creation! However I just wanted to check with you as it appears you meant to enter this in the challenge at The Stamping Boutique and instead entered in DT Call. Can you clarify?
