Sorry I was too late on the go last night to schedule my post for this morning - I only finished my tag and got it on the challenge blog around 1am :( Work is still a bit mad and I'm still on my own, that's almost 6 weeks now. There is light at the end of the tunnel though, just as well as I'm coming home drained every evening and as usual crafting is the first thing that suffers. Unfortunately it's not as essential as looking after my family and sleeping (please note I don't really count housework as an essential apart from keeping up with the washing and keeping the bathroom and kitchen clean, the hoovering and dusting and ironing can wait!!!)
So back to my tag... Our theme this week at I ♥ ProMarkers is 'Anything But A Card' and we are sponsored by the fab
As time was against me I decided to make a tag for the challenge rather than anything more complex. I love making tags as I find working with a small blank space to fill easier than a large one (note to self maybe give ATC's a go!). I decided on a Christmas theme and then had a rummage through my rubber stamps to find a suitable image that would fit on the tag. In the end I picked Poinsettia Girl by Sugar Nellie and coloured her with Promarkers.
The coloured tag is by Papermania and I used an X-cut die to make snowflakes out of newsprint paper from Stampin' Up for the background, adding some little buttons to the snowflakes. The '25' stamp is by Paula Pasqual and the sentiment stamp is from a Lucy Cromwell set that was a magazine freebie, both were stamped on kraft card and I used an X-cut mini die to cut the label shape. I've added some gingham star trim from Hobbycraft, ribbons and a charm to finish my tag.
Thanks for stopping by and I will try to catch up with all your blogs in the near future.
I would like to enter my tag into the following challenge:
