Tag You're it.... week 39

Its Friday! I always forget which day of the week it is over Christmas and the New Year and with having time off from work all the days just roll into one....anyway, it is Friday! and Friday's are Tag You're It days....yeahhhh......the theme for this weeks tag is to use your new stash, either Santa's gifts or things you've recently bought for yourself ....

Here's my ""Happy New Year" tag

I cut a tag using one that came from Josh's new jeans as a template and then coloured it with chalk inks and stamped over it with a "Happy New Year" stamp, the edges were distressed and then overinked. The calender sheets and little tags are "new" stamps from purple onion (have you seen those stamps? if not, pop on over, Michelle is lovely and the service she provides is second to none!) The sheets were distressed using various inks, the December sheet was ruffled around the edges and the January one left pristine with a gold edging (well the dauber had to get a look in somewhere didn't it!! lolxx) The little tags were stamped onto distressed paper and then stamped using the Happy New Year stamp masked off as required.

Pop on over to TYI this week and take a look at the fab tags created by the DT and join in....we'd love to come and visit your blogs and see what you've created.
