Tag you're it - week 35 - Snow is falling...

...and boy did it last Sunday! within 1/2 hour we were white! didn't stay for long soon turned to dirty slush and then disappeared!

So, the theme this week over on Tag You're it is "Snow is Falling..."

Here is my attempt!

The tag was cut on the cricut and the background coloured with glimmer mist (most of which stained my fingers!! lolxx), white and silver snowflakes where then stamped and hi lighted using ice stickles and a blue gem, the snowman image is by personal impressions and that gorgeous saying is by Penny Black!

Pop on over to Tag your it and see the gorgeous tags created by Anne, Dawn, Sarah and Kath and join in the fun with us...

Tag you're it - sketch week....

Grief can you believe its Friday again? we've had a busy ol' week again this week mainly due to my 18 year old not being very well and being referred to hospital for tests and now waiting for a CT scan - its not until you're in these situations that you realise "busy" is nothing! the majority of us take good health for granted don't we and these situations really bring you back to base line! She's seeing a neurologist on Monday evening so hopefully we'll be a bit further forward, she does seem a bit better today!

Friday and its means a Tag you're it new challenge. This week Anne set the theme and gave us a sketch to pop over to the Tag you're it site and see the fabbie creations submitted by the dt.

So, here's my take on the sketch:-

The tag was cut on the cricut, as was the oval, the background is cranberry and lake mist dabs! then stamped over with gold text stamp and then white paperartsy circles a gold dauber on the edges finished it off. The paper is basic grey and the image magnolia coloured in with watercolours and hi lighted with stickles...

What a hoot!!

I attend a couple of crops a month and VERY rarely finish anything, if I'm totally honest I very RARELY start anything!! lolxx (unless its a secret project and I can't do it at home!) anyway, this Saturday the "gang" went off to Papermaze - and a very enjoyable time was had too! anyway, Steve, my DH, had taken these photos the week before and they were just "hooting" out to be scrapped! so, I had a go and here they are:-

A tawny owl had set up home in a hole in a large tree in the local park - one eagle eyed twitcher had noticed it and sent in a picture to the newspaper, anyone that knows my OH knows he just had to go and get his own piccies for the collection!!

Here's my tag for this week:-

The background is a cranberry dauber, with torn pieces of basic grey papers for the bottom and top and also stamped onto - her eyes have been shaded using a versacolour cube as a base for watercolour. Some bling and a prima flower finishes it off...

If you pop over to Tag You're it this week you'll notice that Kath has organised a gorgeous bundle of stash for one lucky tagger to win, last weeks winner has been announced too... only a shame us DT members can't enter!! lol

Its been another manic week, work wise, this week, hopefully things will start to calm down a bit to allow me to make a start on those Christmas cards...
