Tags at Divas by Design

Hi everyone! How are all those of you in the UK enjoying this scorching weather?! I have to say I feel dreadfully guilty if I don't go outside as it is so rare for us to have such lovely weather in the UK! So if I'm kept busy in the house during the day, I at least try to have my lunch outdoors!
Well, we had something else to deal with yesterday in our busy and hectic schedule! Remember my daughter's nasty fall a few weeks back? Well the wound on her shoulder didn't heal quite so good and now she has impetigo! For those of you who don't know, it's a highly contagious surface skin infection which has now spread to her back, chest and underarms. Honestly the poor thing, like she hadn't had enough to deal with! So now she has to have anti biotics 4 times a day and cream 3 times a day and she still hasn't fully healed from the original fall!
So in between all this we had the year 6 leavers meal yesterday and 2 school discos. Today is community day at the high school and tomorrow is the year 6 end of term play. My eldest daughter has announced that she wants cakes making for the school party on friday and I am still lacking in teacher thank you cards!
But next week is my Nephews birthday so I made him a card for my DT contribution over at Divas by design this week where our challenge is to use a tag on your creation or just make a tag.
We are sponsored by Shape EZ who gave us templates to use.
I have used Bazill basics papers for this card, aren't they just the funkiest bright colours?! My tag is the Pedestal tag template from Shape EZ. I have also used a bunch of things from my stash and created some hand cut bunting too.
I love this fabby Haenglar image. I bought this one off a crafty friend as they are no longer available in this country. I am ashamed to say I have so many not even inked and they really are just so adorable, I loved colouring this little man with my prisma pencils.
Do check out what the rest of the team have done for this great challenge!
Thanks for coming by my blog!
Big hugs

Gosh Rebekah.. your poor daughter is going through a rough patch… I had impetigo as a child on my face… it was horrid… just remember having to use all separate flannels, towels etc.. as it spreads so easily… I really hope it clears up quickly for her and she can enjoy the school holidays!!
Your card is very sweet… what an adorable image… I love the Summery colours and the fab bunting… the tag looks gorgeous!
Hope you manage to get through your hectic week ok!
Take care
Hugs Sue xx

Fantastic boys card Rebekah, love all the gorgeous layers and fab image and colours.
Lacking in teacher thank you cards, I haven't even started yet thinks I will have to buy some. Sounds like you are us busy there as we are here with all the end of school year things going on ...we saw our year 5 & 6 play tonight, was fantastic, enjoy yours tomorrow.
Thanks so much for my wonderful surprise parcel this morning, so kind of you.
