June Mahoney - Scrap Africa - "Tag It" Challenge 39

Hello Everyone!
 
After seeing a couple of cards in the Facebook Paper People group  that Mum (June Mahoney) shared  recently the lovely Helen Wallace  (Design Team Member at Scrap Africa) kindly asked Mum if she would like to join in with the current Scrap Africa Challenge No 39.
 
Its a "TAG IT" Challenge
                                                            
Tags are so versatile and can be used in so many ways!
So our challenge  is to use your tags and show us what you can do with them.
Please just make sure that you use at least 2 tags.
You can create a page, card or OTP project.
 
Mum was quietly thrilled to be asked by Helen  and very humble and modest saying, No I don't think I will do that..... reasons being.... she didn't think her work would be good enough to enter any challenges......but I told her otherwise.   Her other concern was not having her own blog and thinking she would have  to put me out  with helping her photograph her cards and then  spending time uploading it onto my blog so it could be linked in to join the challenge.....No worries to me, more than happy to help I told her, but please don't feel any pressure, if you don't want to play along then that quite okay.
No I don't think I will.....but I could tell that she really would like to.
 Next morning the door bell rings in comes Mum with not 1 but 2 tags for the challenge
:)
...and here are her beautiful creations.
 
[Best Wishes 4 you}

Thank you Helen for asking me to join in with the Scrap Africa "Tag It" Challenge.
I have thoroughly enjoyed creating these little tag cards.

I'm impressed by your cards June and equally impressed by your bravery in stepping outside your comfort zone to join in Scrap Africa's tag challenge.
The muted tones with stamping hessian and raffia look so elegant on the first one. The traditional Christmas colours, with distressing, music paper and sequins are just perfect to pop on a gift. Both are lovely and a big thank you to you and Janice for playing along. You have an open invitation to join in any time at all :D
