Papertrey Ink Tag Download Challenge

With the weather here lately anyone would think it was winter or at least autumn not Summer- we have had a couple of days of summer earlier last week with nice warm weather but the past weekend has been nothing but rain and it has turned cool. DH and I spent all day Saturday up at out local Fire station helping coordinate and assisting the CFA and SES with evacuating various residents from surrounding areas as they became surrounded by water. It was all such a sudden downpour that there are few who were not affected in some way- Our house and our childrens' houses are fine but one of my nieces had to evacuate and when she got back has lost quite a bit including most if not all of her photos and heaps of other stuff. We all help out as we can. Hope everyone else is staying warm and dry glad we haven't got the snow a lot of you are getting.

I have to say that my posts are going to become sparse again as I have just had an emergency call to fill in at one of the schools I work at indefinitely so I will try to post as best I can but mostly will be only at night or weekends now for a while.

Papertrey Ink is celebrating their 4 year anniversary and today there is a free PTI Anniversary Tag Download  and a challenge to create a project.image

Although I don't own any Papertrey ink products and have never downloaded any of their other freebies -which I will be seriously looking at now- these tags are divine. I have always admired them and been envious of those who do have them so this was very generous of them to give these away.

Here is my card using Heather Nichols tag. I basically just printed the tags from the free download and cut out - I actually used a punch first up but cut crooked-oops -so to centre the image again I used the Quickutz circle die -it's a tiny bit smaller than the original but still looks magnificent -thanks Heather. I used scraps from my stash to finish the card- I had this lotus cut out and when I was looking for paper to cut a scalloped edge for the tag found it so thought I'd use it instead. I stamped a stem to make it look like a flower and then just stuck it all down. Hope you like it. Thanks for visiting.
