Hello lovely ladies and gents just popping in with a super quick post as I see one of my favourite challenge blogs Just Us Girls has a fantastic theme this week.
It’s been an absolute age since I made a tag and as I had just received a little package of goodies that seemed perfect for the challenge I thought I would give it a go.
Harvey is the name of this super royal guard by Tim Holtz and Sizzix , I absolutely love him there are so many options in the set so expect more non traditional flamboyant guards to follow. I chose traditional colours this time and added a few gold “blobs from Pinkfresh for buttons and a touch of Nuovo drops for his shiny boots. I used another new embossing folder from Tim Holtz for the sprigs and coloured it with Distress Oxide added a touch of chunky glitter embossing paste hither and thither, unfortunately, the glitter is a bit shy and decided it didn’t want to appear but I can assure you it’s there! A few gold splatters were added willy nilly hoping to add a touch of something a little more festive.
I used my Crop-o-dile to add the eyelet the poor thing has been shoved at the back of a drawer for many. a moon and was glad to see the light of day. The sentiment is courtesy of Mr Holtz.
So there you have it! A big thank you to Carol Mc from Just Us Girls for this great challenge it must be about 10 years since I last made a tag and I enjoyed it so much.BTW the tag was hand cut as I didn’t have a die and I couldn’t be bothered firing up the old Silhouette Cameo.
Do pop over to Just us Girls as the DT have some amazing tags to inspire and delight.
I’m also linking up to NBUS # 43 as Harvey is out on his first official engagement as is the embossing folder.
What a wonderful tag Marie, I LOVE the Guard, his buttons are perfect, clever Gal. He’s certainly polished his boots for you. Love the embossed festive foliage, I can see the glitter! Love the lovely sentiment also, a SUPER duper tag.

Love Harvey and he looks so regal here especially with those shiny boots. Super tag Marie. I bet this looks super IRL. Photos quite often don’t show true.
Ina he looks fabulous in real life even if I do say so myself lol
Great tag, I love toy soldiers and this one is wonderful. Thanks for joining us at Just Us Girls.

It’s the boots – polished to perfection! Just love this tag Marie and am very impressed by the accuracy of your ‘hither and thither’ and ‘willy nilly’ additions (technical terms of course!!) Vicky x
I knew you would be impressed with my word placement technical terms lol !
