MY First Ever Tag

Hi and good morning to all my talented followers and visitors.
I hope you all had a fabulous Wednesday, and the weather
was kind to each and everyone of you.
First of all I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to all you
wonderful blog friends that had the spare time to visit 
craftyhugs blog.
Your great kindness will be repaid in the future I'm sure.
THANK YOU for all your lovely comments on my humble
I really do appreciate every one that is made.
On looking at fellow blogs such as Christine Embersons
and Carole Z.
They have been showing tags that they have made.
So I said to myself, self you have never made a tag so 
now is the time to make one. 
You see I talk to myself all the time. Some may say it's 
not good to talk to ones self, but hey it only answers what
I want to hear. lol.
Well in any rate hear is my first ever tag, not too sure about
What do you think ?

I cut a couple of tags on my Cricut Machine.
Glued them together to make it strdy.
Distressed the whole tag with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
Stamped the background with Creative Expressions Carte
Postal stamps designed by Sam Poole.
Then I added some rub ons  and buttons.
I tried to age the ribbon but I don't think it was successful,
do you.
Thank you again for every comment.
I hope you all have a fab Thursday.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Morning Jenny, This tag is lovely, I absolutely love anything 'steampunk' so this tage is 'right up my street', I love the colours and the ribbon definitely looks 'vintage' to me. Keep up the good work.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
PS I asked you the other day about what you use to make your boxes, is it something crafters companion? I have the enveloplus but I want to make boxes for A5 size cards, any help greatly appreciated, thanks xx

Well done Jenny - a brilliant first tag - I have been making a card with the extra bit of Fancy Trellis die (still have one bit left) and I made a tag to go in a little pocket on the front. I do like making them. I bet this won't be your last one.

Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
