365 Cards - #153 - Tag, You're It

Today over at 365 Cards for the second last day of Reader Appreciation Week the challenge was set down as Tag, You're It and you had to include a journalling ticket on your card somewhere. You could use an actual ticket, a rub-on, a stamp or a sticker. I'm sorry I didn't get my card on last night but I went to bed at 8.30pm and did not get up again until 8.30am this morning I think I had some kind of 24 hour virus, with high temp, headache etc. I got up okay this morning except for the constant headache which is still with me tonight but other than that I have no clues as to what it was. . .it is a mystery!! Now back to cards, I digressed for just a bit sorry ladies! My pic tonight is a little blurry and I don't know why. Do not adjust your screens folks we will return to normal viewing directly!
I used one of my coveted Tim Holtz Journalling Tags that I won on his blog (you all know what I am talking about lol) and I have been keeping them safe for a couple of months now but I cracked them open for this challenge. I also used a new set of Tim Holtz rubber stamps which I won on EBay a couple of weeks ago which came last Friday. They are my new favs. . .geez I am so predictable!

This second pic is of my beautiful little grandaughter Sophie eating her dinner tonight which was stir-fry oriental noodles and she loved them as you can see lol. She wants to feed herself now at 14 months but got a little carried away and tipped the bowl into her lap and then proceeded to put the bowl on her head and as you can see she is thoroughly enjoying herself lol she was having a ball, so Nan decided to get the camera! She is so beautiful.

Okay that is it for me tonight.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

The card so fits the title of your blog! And Sophie so fits my image of how children should look - messy and happy! I enjoyed both pics today, put a smile on my face!

Michelle, you are many things, but I have a feeling that predictable isn't one of them! You always delight and surprise with your lovely cards. Speaking of delight and surprise - Sophie, though messy, looks radiant with joy. What a great picture (and thanks for posting it!)

You've changed your picture!
I can empathise with you about your granddaughter's feeding habits... Daisy hasn't quite got the idea of feeding herself yet either, but she also wants to try!
Great card once more.
