Sneaking in ....

Here I am sneaking in at the last minute with my tag for this weeks challenge at Dragons Dream Tag it on which is 'Bead-dazzle'. I've made a bracelet with twisted bugle beads, cube beads and size 11 seed beads and attached it to my tag for this weeks challenge. I did get it finished yesterday but the internet was soooooo sloooooooow I gave up trying to post it lol.

I love bead stitching but it takes so long I really don't make as much jewellery as I'd like to. This is the second of these bracelets I've made, my friend loved the design so this will be a perfect pressie for her.

The tag is a large manilla tag from Graphicus, I coloured the tag with dusty concorde and milled lavender distress inks and stamped the Stampman dragonfly stamp with dusty concorde. The edges and sentiment are embossed in silver although it hasn't shown up too wellin the pic. The words read 'Imagine the possibilities' , another stamp from Elusive Images.
I made a couple of little holes with my cropodile and attached the bracelet with a little purple ribbon, it looked a bit plain so inspired by Cynthia's fab challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog this week which is 'feathers' i added a purple feather.

I'm also entering this tag in this weeks challenge from Tuesday Taggers where the theme is 'Anything Goes' and the sponsor is Ribbon Oasis who are offering a gorgeous selection of ribbons to the lucky winner 

Thanks for looking. We look to be having some better weather today,
I hope you get some sunshine too
