Tag - part 2 ...

...  Gosh, it's been a busy day today.  I typed up the minutes of the Scouts Programme Planning meeting - we've got some fun events lined up - incoporating ideas from our Scouts and planning according to the weather.  I don't do too many outdoor events in the winter (December), so the requests for night walks and camps will have to
wait for warmer weather!!!  I'm mean! 

I also managed to get all the ironing done - it's so nice to see empty ironing baskets.

So as I was sitting down watching the news with a nice cup of coffee - well earned - I suddenly thought of another Tag for Claire's Tag - You're It competition.  I have another set of Claire's stamps that have hardly seen ink - yes, I know that's bad.  So without further ado - here is the tag.

I used a wonderful set that Claire released last year - it's a secret so you have to visit a special place - don't want little eyes to see this set!!  You'll need a password - ibelieveinsantaclause - should work :))


I'm really pleased how this turned out.  A sweet little Elf Shoe - in very festive colours.

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Secret Stamp Set
Inks:  Versamark; Memento - Cottage Ivy;  Distress - Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint
Embossing Powder:  Heat It Up! - Red Tinsel, Green Tinsel

This image lends itself to a bit of decoupage!  And it's so easy to cut too.  I kept it really simple and only did two layers - for a card I might be a bit more adventurous and do three or even four!!  The green shoe base is a piece of paper that I had in my stash and actually had holly leaves on it - so worked as a tag backing.

That's all for this evening.  No bonfire party around here tonight - we're going to the big one in Chester tomorrow night.  Besides, it's rather wet and windy - so not the best night to enjoy fireworks.  Here's hoping that tomorrow will be better.

Ohhhhh - Santa left his footprint at your house. He's really rather a traditional chap & rightly so - he has impeccable taste with his colour scheme. Absolutely love it, just imagine that he has a tree shaped footprint - it's brilliant & I love the way he's made it sparkly too & a lovely neat attaching knot - looks like he's been doing knot practice with the elves again.

You know, I'd forgotten I had this!!! Imagine that! It is hidden in a brown padded envie....somewhere...gosh I have not a clue where I've hidden it in case Granddaughter found it...but it doesn't matter now as I've heard she's cottoned on....drat....a search will be on tomorrow! Thanks for reminding me! I want to loan it to some friends with small kids! That's a great tag!
