Tim's January 2014 tag and a case of C.R.A.F.T.!

There was I all organised - a nice little pile of "ingredients" for making Tim's first tag of 2014! I think I only managed one last year and I'm not even sure that it made it to my blog! So, everything was ready to bring away to our caravan with me and then what happened was a case of C.R.A.F.T.,that's not what you think....when I was working our school caretaker had been to his GP, while there he had mentioned to the doc that he kept forgetting things - the doc had told him that he had a case of C.R.A.F.T - Can't Remember A Flippin' Thing! Well I've got it now! I just left everything on my desk!

I was all ready to give up on the idea but after sitting knitting a scarf for my granddaughter it occurred to me that two of the colours in the wool were exactly the same colour as two Distress inks I have here - a little sort through my boxes and I came up with this prettier version than I'd like but I did stick as far as I could to Tim's instructions which you can find here.
So here's my tag
As you can see the two colours were Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry and they were ink pads rather than Distress stain but considering my brain fail it doesn't look too bad!

Thanks for looking, Chris

  1. Must try to remember this one, its so funny Chris. Your tag is lovely. I have these ink pads but shy away from them. Must be braver. Enjoy your caravan break and hope the weather is kind to you.

  2. I like your tag, it's like a little collage.
    Forgetfulness is not a state to look forward to, but it's part of escalated ageing.....sadly!
    Stay busy. :)

  4. I think it's beautiful and brilliantly done! These colours are pretty rather than grungy, but they look amazing together! I like that acronym too! Well, I guess forgetfulness is part of growing older, but it happens to all ages. My kids are two of the most forgetful people I know! Julie Ann xx

  5. Such a pretty version of Tim's tag - I think it's lovely. Interesting - now I know I have two diseases... I suffer from C.R.A.F.T. and craft-addiction!
