Altered envelope - 1st try

 From the blue envelope to it being covered:

To this with a small tag in it:
Tag slightly removed, it can be written on.
A journaling card would be in it rather than a tag to give someone more to write on. I didn't cover the back of the envelope as it will be stuck completely onto a page. Not a bad first attempt.

The Zoo

 We all went to the zoo yesterday, trying to see what we missed last time. Still didn’t manage it. DGD enjoyed herself but got tired. It was very busy and at times difficult to keep away from people. We bought an overpriced lunch which was ok but not over special.

We all slept well but DGD has got a cough and a bit of a runny nose. She’s already been tested for Covid otherwise we couldn’t have come.

A few more items made

 Herewith some tags and a couple of journal cards, before and after tags:

I love the fairy journal cards. They are from the Autumn Fairy book by C. M. Barker. She has loads more so shall try and seek them out at car boot sales. Herewith afterwards:

I could also stitch around them if desired. Might try that on the next few I make.

It is very difficult in the early days of learning a new craft, as you tend to copy others work to get to grips with the technical side of things. Eventually, I hope to find my own style. Even in the above image, there are only 5 out of the 8 I really like so am probably beginning to get where I want but it will take a lot more time. This I know!
