The Funkie Junkie Tags of Christmas Bonus tag #2.

I have gone down with the 'bug' that seems to be sweeping our area and have not felt like doing very much. I also started the New Year with the saddest news as we have  lost our darling cat Molly who went gently to sleep over the weekend because of a spinal growth. I am devistated as she was nearly 13, but our Persians have always lived long lives up to about 18 so it was very unexpected and I loved her so. It is the first time we have not shared our home with a cat since 1969.
Enough, you don't want to hear my woes. So I will share my attempt at Linda's bonus tag over on her blog here and so I have now completed her challenge and enjoyed it very much indeed! It has been sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique and there are some very generous offers to be won so do take a peep.
My tag /notelet has been inspired by how Linda folds up a large tag and by the embossed edging she used on it this time and the Brushed Pewter DP.

I used Silver DP and Picket Fence DP on the base and then embossed the bottom and flap with embossing paste then went over the edges with Iced Spruce DI. I die cut the butterfly and added some more Brushed Pewter and dry glitter to it and then added the Simple saying. I did the inside the same way but I couldn't get it to photograph in this awful rain filled light. I would just like to thank Linda for a great challenge, it went by so fast and I really enjoyed myself. Hope you are all having a better start to the New Year, be back soon. x


  1. Ahh, Barbara, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved cat. It is awful sad to lose a pet and the grieving is just as strong as for a human member of ones family. Maybe soon you will be able to give a lonely pussy a new forever home.
    Your wee pocket is lovely. Very Bronte I think :o)

  2. Firstly, I am so sorry that you have been ill, I hope you are fully recovered soon. I am sorry too to hear about Molly, animals play such a large part in our lives and it is so devastating when this happens. She must have had a wonderful life with you and that is a blessing to count.
