Let It Snow Tag

Good Morning!

First of all (because I can't wait!) I can now share with you some fantastic crafty news - I have been accepted on to the design team at the Cutie Pies Challenge Blog!!!  This is the first DT I have plucked up the courage to apply for so I was amazed to be offered a place on the team.  I especially love making cute cards so I am over the moon to join such a wonderful team.  I am not taking part in the current challenge but they have a fantastic 'Cute with Shades of Autumn' theme which has just started over at The Cutie Pie Challenge Blog.

I'd also like to welcome the new followers to my blog, thank you for finding me, and thanks also to my existing followers for their ongoing support and lovely comments they leave, it's always appreciated.

Today for a change I have a tag to share.  I really enjoy making tags and every time I make one I wonder why I don't do it more often.  I think I just like being able to fill a small space like that with a few little details rather than having lots of space on a card and sometimes it can look a bit sparse.

I have used a freebie snowman digi that I picked up on the Dearie Dolls blog ages ago and forgot I had until I tidied up my files on the pc the other day! I think he looks very cheery!  I've coloured him in with Promarkers and given him a generous spritz of Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle.  I've die cut and mounted him on a piece of turquoise snowflake patterned paper.  The red tag and lace are both from a Docrafts Christmas Goody Bag I got for my birthday last week.  The snowflake die was another freebie from last month's Creativity magazine.  The smaller snowflakes were made using a cheapy punch that belongs to my daughter, the buttons are also from her stash (I'll get shot if she sees this lol).  I've finished off the tag with a sentiment from LOTV, some paper cord and a couple of turquoise pearls.  That's it, the tags full, jobs a good 'un, as my ex boss used to say!

Bye for now...Shona xx
