Norah McPhee said...

hi Suzi,
Your bonnie card/tag holder looks so much like the lovely bright vagrant walks that you take through the historic houses and their gardens and this is where your card takes my mind to. Sorry i have a very vivid imagination and it works overtime when it sees things like this paper. I love Sara's papers as the are a beautiful weight and not that spit peas through stuff that tears as soon as you look at it, so it makes pretty flowers from it as well. Thank you flower for the beautiful walk that you took my mind on,
crafty hugs
Norah (Glenochil)

what a great idea, will have to try this card xx

Maryann Laursen said...

Such a beautiful summercard here, and a really great idea with all the tags, as it fives us possibility to make some more sentiments or write more personal comments to the reciever. It would be perfect for a really good friend, as you could share many great sayings for her there and with beautiful images on the front, so it looks more like an everyday card. Sooo beautiful.

Sharon said...

Really lovely card, with a fresh and summery feel.

June Smith said...

Hi Suzi, I am new to your blog I must confess, as well as new to many of the design team, but oh my word I will not be one of those people who only comment when there is a prize on offer. I spend so much time on people's blog's because I learn to much, especially obtaining ideas and inspirations but also just to be part of the community of regulars.

How amazing is your design card, especially in this summer (where is it do I hear you say) I can just hear the birds twittering and the grass blowing the flowers in the wind, this card really does that for me, gorgeous.

Good luck to everyone who is entering the blog hop, I will be tuning in when the collection is launched.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

magz9764 said...

Hi Suzi, such an amazing card and thanks for the inspiration. Lovely dies in the new collection will be getting my hands on them all even if I win a one off as I love Sara's signature collections, she is so talented and a marvellous role model. Hugs Magz xx

Zanna Godfrey said...

I am getting so much inspiration from doing this blog hop, it is really lovely. This would adapt so well to lots of different uses, for example putting packets of seeds in instead of tags. It is so pretty and if the tags were decorated you could give it as a little extra gift to someone so that they had some special tags for their presents. I love Sara's Christmas tree.

Karen said...

This is a great card, you could put spa vouchers in there, or like a birthday hunt, only you get your clues from there. It's so pretty & girlie too. I have to do this one now xx thanks for the idea xxxxx
