Good Morning Peeps,

Another beautiful hot day I have just been sat outside having my breakfast but it's already got too warm to sit without any shade, not complaining though.

We have a new challenge at Fab'n'Funky today one to cool you down it's out monthly challenge of:


The host for the challenge this week is our lovely Wends and she has asked for some quick and easy Christmas makes.

I decided to make some tags I printed a sheet of card from a Nitwits folder cut them out with a Sue Wilson tag die, added poinsettias that I have had in my Christmas embellishment boxes for years, some small Kanban sentiments, silk thread and gold glamour dust.

Hope to see you joining in this week and have a good day.
