TYI, Penny Black Sat and some birthday thank you's xxx

Well good evening and I hope you are comfy because this could turn into a long post............

Firstly this is my entry for this weeks TYI challenge the theme this week is Time for Tea I used this Penny black image as it was perfect for the theme i love making round tags and this image seemed to really suit a round shape..... i wanted to give the image a bit of dimension so i curved the image and fixed it onto the circular mat by only putting stacked foam pads down the center I inked the edges and added a little lilac bow.............

A view from the side to show the dimension..............................




I love this image......................................................................
Then!......................... and don't ya just love it when this happens popped over to Penny black Saturday Challenge and there was a fab sketch with a circular image so yep you guessed it.......................................... ta da!!!
I adapted my tag to become part of this card and I really love it!!!

The papers are Forever friends flowers are prima and i used my fiskers border punch to give it a doiley tea time feel...........
Ok now for the Thank you's
As some of you know it was my Birthday last week and i would like to share the lovely cards I received from my fab bloggy buddys.......when I started blogging last October I never expected to meet such wonderful,friendly and generous people, I don't think I knew what to expect I really wanted to share my cards and scour other blogs for ideas and inspiration!!!!!!!
Well did I get a whole lot more than I bargained for I love my blogging community and so look forward to checking out all your hard work and fab inspiration...ok I'd better change the subject before i blub lol!!!

I received these gorg cards from some of my bloggy buds!!! thank you all so much!!!!!

How versatile, love that image my friend bought the stamp a couple of weeks ago so I just had to stamp a few images before she took it home!!! I love what you have done on the card to gain dimension.

Lovely!
