Hello, and welcome!
I am really craving a heavy snowfall, right now!
It is far too hot for this Celtic lady, and our electricity bill is goin' to be mahoosive, because we have two fans whirly-giggin around in every room, and I'm still meltin'.....sheeesh!!
In keeping with my mood for frozen frostiness, I've made a cute little Christmas Tag......yep.......never too early for the best season of the year, in my experience.....haaaaa!
The challenge we have at
this week is to create a tag, or a card incorporating a tag, and upload it at the challenge blog.......fun!
Our lovely sponsor this week is
and Mr. Random Org. will choose a winner who will receive 5 digi images of their choice!
Our Design Team (links in my sidebar) came up with some really lovely creations, using some of the cute images from our sponsor....do take a look!
I chose to use this lovely one, and gave him pride of place on my tag.......
I used a large tag die, cut from brown Bazzil, and cut a slightly smaller one from tan K&Co. paper........then cut the same size shape from acrylic that has gold embossed Christmas trees.....all layered up! I tore a piece of red and gold paper and lay it across the width of the tag, then a strip of tartan paper on top of that.......
The big man, himself, is coloured up with my lovely Promarkers, with some pencil for shading. I used a little white texture paste on his hat and coat.......a little yellow gem on his poinsettia, just 'cos it's Christmas....haaa!
I cut the holly leaves with a large punch, and drew in the veins with an embossing tool......the cheery red heart looks as if it's got something white on it, but it's actually a reflection of light, lol.......
I added the extra little tag, which was cut from a HOTP page, and lay a word strip across, with two little gems, and a metal Christmas tree with a shiny centre brad......
I think I got this lush lace from our local market.........done!
I love tags, and am looking forward to visiting your blogs to see what you come up with, for this challenge......come on, join in!
Okie-dokie.....that's me for the next week.....we are off to sunny Cornwall for some much-needed lazin' around, and generally doing the good ol' British-on-holiday stuff.....haaaa!
