Well, hopefully you aren't all tired of Christmas just yet as I seem to be on a roll here! I really loved this recent sketch from Freshly Made, but didn't get a chance to play while it was current. (Can't wait to play with their current one!) However, it worked really well with this fun tag when I got around to playing.
The tag is from a cute set my Mom picked up on clearance in the Boxing Day sales when she was visiting at the holidays - Thanks Mom! I was actually supposed to share these with my Lil Sis, but we forgot to share them out before she left - sorry! A good reason for her to visit again soon maybe! Anyhow, turns out these tags make for fun cards when used with a fun sketch!
I also used some of the new Little Yellow Bicycle 6x6 paper pad I picked up in the Christmas Sales! Love that fun greyish snowflake background!
The ribbon is also new - my Lil Sis dug it out of a clearance bin at a Boxing Day sale somewhere (can't remember where) and was nice enough to share it with me!
A little embossing, a little stitching and without much fuss, voila another holiday card for the stash! I left this one without a sentiment. Sometimes it's nice to have a few like that as it could become a holiday thank you at the last minute or I could add the sentiment on the inside in another language for example. My husband's side of the family is French so I do have a few French sentiments for the holidays.
I would like to share this at:
Shopping Our Stash - Happy NEW Year! - use something new (ribbon, tag, patterned paper)
City Crafter - Burlap Love
Cute Card Thursday - What's New? (ribbon, tag, paper)
Thanks for visting!
I just got back from a skate ski lesson under the lights out at Lappe Nordic. It was a great lesson but it was a little on the cold side! Well, not as cold as it was here yesterday in Thunder Bay, Ontario when it still felt like -42 C (with the wind chill) at noon, but it was chilly tonight, -18 c and with the wind it felt like about -27 c. Good thing there are lots of trees - we had our lesson in a treed area where it was very sheltered from the wind, so it really wasn't too bad. My bed, conveniently equipped with flannel sheets; however, is calling my name rather loudly, so off I go.
