March Tag Challenge

Hi folks,

I'm having crafting withdrawal as I just haven't had any time or energy to do any for over a week, so tonight I decided I had to make something!  As there are only a few more days left in March I thought I'd better get on with my offering for the monthly tag challenge over at Docrafts.

It took much longer than anticipated, not because there's anything complicated in it but because A. I couldn't find the new kraft tags I'd bought specially and B. I couldn't find the buttons I wanted to use, duh!  I really must try to find some time to tidy my craft stash while I have a couple of days off work.  Did I mention I'm not back to work until Tuesday?  Yipee!!!!

Ok, so my tag.   The remit for this one was yellow and green with another colour.  I started with a precut kraft tag from Papermania then added some Papermania Chelsea Green capsule collection paper which I distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Bundled Sage.  I then added a Forever Friends stamped image coloured with promarkers and a stamped sentiment from Hobbycraft mounted on more capsule collection paper this time from the Lemon Sorbet collection.  I finished off the card with buttons from the Boofle collection, tiny green pearls from Hobbycraft, various ribbons and papercord and some Papermania satin buds.

I certainly hope it's not as long until my next post! 

Bye for now xx


  1. Hi Shona, good to see you back. Know what you mean about being too tired, I'm the same, whacked when I get home from work and find it hard to have any creative juices flowing.
    Anyway, l love your tag, the colours are great as is the design.
    Enjoy your little holiday, Kate x

  2. love your tag Shona - so cute! I know what you mean about not being able to find stuff - I've got to stop buying stuff and get on top of everything I have - I'm going to a show in May so its another good reason to save my pennies!!! Have a wonderful few days off and enjoy Easter xx
