3 is a magic number!

The challenge at a Vintage Journey is 'Special Numbers' - I'm not really a numbers girl but the number 3 is a special number to me! Three children and three grandchildren (so far lol!), but my sons are usually referred to as 'the boys' collectively!
My inspiration came by looking at CC II, not picked out specifically for this challenge but because it had been out and not put away!
I was looking through and decided to use embossed Core'dinations card for my tag and some of Tim's ideas for the tag.

Thanks for looking, Chris

Your tag made me smile how you have depicted your sons Chris and I love how the red makes everything pop. Great work and thanks for joining in the challenge at A Vintage Journey and good luck.

Well Chris, I am a numbers gal, and I totally approve of that tag. I especially like how you incorporated the red tag in the background (or middle ground). I think it made the tag come together nicely.

I'm off to see the link you shared with me. I feel so ignorant, and this is MY heritage. I remember my Grandmother trying to tell me about my heritage, and we belonged to some house or something. NONE of it made sense, but now I want to learn about it. And to think, it all started with my friend Kathy who was throwing all her research and pictures away.

Hugs, Neet xx

I love this tag, Chris - the delicate pale neutrals, and then the warmth of the red panel, and such a fabulous topping. Gorgeous!
