My poor neglected Blog, I am so sorry for not not being around but holidays and other things have been in the way. But I am here now to share Tim's amazing September tag techniques and my attempt at them. Tim's tag can be found here. I adore this months tag so much. Who would ever have thought of using the gorgeous flourish stencil with clear embossing then going over it with Archival ink. It just makes it pop off the page. My tag is a happy one because not only did I enjoy making it, but it actually turned out ok too.

I want to wish a very Happy Wedding Anniversary to my special friend Sylvia and hubby Reg.
If I have my facts right, today is their 55th anniversary.
What an achievement although not surprising because you would have to go a long long way to find 2 people more friendly than them. I am lucky to have met them and wish them many more happy years together.

Tim's August tag details can be found HERE. Well, Mr Holtz, I didn't expect to be able to join in this month as I don't have the dies used and just could not think of how to get round it. However, the pull of this monthly excitement, which I've joined in almost from day one, was just too much and having spent the past 16 days racking my brains how I could create my tag, this morning saw everything fall into place and I came up with this.

Since we bought the camper 13 years ago, I have disliked the upholstery. Being Hymers demo vehicle or 'flagship' according to them, we had no choice over colours. Blue is not a favourite colour of mine although it doesn't completely turn me inside out. However, the curtains and blackout blinds are blue. The seats are covered in an absolutely awful design of material in blue, green and a rather weird gold.
Anyway all the seats which are mainly in the sun have faded and the captains seats arms are quite mucky. Time to do something about it all, so I have.
The bench seats all look smart too.
I will have to tackle the base covers on the captain seats after that as the material is simply popped on top of them at the moment. The problem with those is the fact I can't kneel down for long enough and certainly can't get up again!!! I may have to come up with a plan there me thinks.
Right, I'm off to start this gorgeous day.

Have a look HERE for the details of Tim's July tag. Back in the land of the living after my 2 weeks of 'duty'. Glad that episode is over! I haven't been able to give any thought to this month's tag and as Tim made his to celebrate the USA on July 4th, it was quite a challenge to incorporate his techniques this time. However, I got up this morning with my determination hat on and came up with this.
