Tag your're it - New stash challenge

The challenge at Tag Your're it is to create a tag from your new stash you got from Father Christmas. I have to be honest ,as I cannot lie. Me and the OH do not exchange christmas gifts, as his birthday is on December 23rd and mine is in 17 days...... I however have treated myself! Well rude not too. The stamp seen here and the promarkers arrived just after christmas from Mr Postie. I had made this card for Cuttlebug challenge but realised the card would not work for that challenge. So I have saved it and decided to use it for Mum's birthday at the end of the month. I therefore need a matching tag. When I went to get the stuff to make it I realised that I had no brown card left. Promarkers came in really handy to colour the cream card I used the cocoa colour. I then coloured in the image to match the card. I made a nestie style distressed flower and added a stickle dot as the centre of the flower. I cuttlebugged the blue card. I used a tag sentiment from the old stash and attatched it with jump rings. Mum is very particular, she is tres chic and posh and very french, none of which I am.

Hi Pascale, and Happy New Year!! You will be pleased to know that visiting your blog has set me off on my latest craft craze, polymer clay (as you can see at the top of my tag! LOL!!)

I love this set - the stamp is great and brown & blue is one of my most favourite colour combos!

Thanks so much for playing along with us again, and lots of luck for 2009! ;o) xx
