The last of my tags for the Baroque Guild Alphatag Swap this month. The remaining 6 months each have two tags allocated to them so we've just crossed the midpoint & not one person who originally signed up for the swap has dropped out.
Why I didn't think of this before I don't know but better late than never. There is a section on the Chocolate Baroque Design Team Blog which is for public view & devoted to the Alphatag Swap.

I had to rethink my initial idea of nautical navigation as it just looked like a jumble. I'm very much an evolving kind of crafter - I have to start & see how an idea develops & looks as I go along. With this project I had a cream tag with a black die-cut behind the image & toyed with using pale blue instead of the soft rose. The musical notes & the outer heart are actually a very deep pearlescent dusky pink though they appear red in my photos.
Since the musical note punch may have been used once since it was bought several years ago & none of these stamps have been inked since purchasing them in 2011 I am joining Judith's Forgotten Friday 57 with this tag.
