Christmas Tags

Good Morning Peeps,

I hope you are all having a good week, it’s been quite cold here but dry and sunny.

It’s Wednesday so we have a new challenge for you today over on Fab'n'Funky and our host for the challenge this week is our lovely Judith with her choice of:

Anything but a Card


I made some Christmas tags, I cut the tags with a Sue Wilson die coloured them with Cosmic Shimmer iridescent mica pigment and while wet sprinkled on some Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Shakers I die cut branches in white glitter card with a Sue Wilson die and added a bow, sentiment, pearl and silver cord.

Do take a look at the challenge blog for some great inspiration from the design team.

Winter Scene

Good Morning Peeps,

Well after all the rain we have had this week today has dawned bright, sunny and frosty, a beautiful late Autumn day, we could do with quite a few more days like this.

We have a new challenge starting today on My Time to Craft where for the next two weeks our challenge is to create:

A Christmas Scene


I am a bit out of my comfort zone without papers and a coloured image but I made an inked background with a moon and some hills with torn paper, Father Christmas and the sentiments were from a free magazine set, trees and stars are Lavinia stamps and the stags are Cardio and I added Cosmic Shimmer Glitter.

Look forward to seeing you joining in our challenge this fortnight only one more after this one before Christmas!!!!!!!!

Enjoy your day and have a good weekend.
