I can't believe we're half way through November already ...... how did that happen!! This last week has really flown by, probably because I've been busy trying to keep up with Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas event ...... it's been so much fun!
Day 12 was yesterday ..... but the event is staying open until the 16th (tomorrow), so I've still got time to link up my last 2 tags ....... I did say I was going to do all 12!
Here's my penultimate tag ........ (this was going to be the last one but ........ I couldn't get any decent pictures last night of the one that was going to be number 11 so I've swapped them round ..... does that make sense?!) Pop back later to see Tag number 12.
Anyhow ..... I did buy another one the year that Chris was born (1990) ...... it comes out every year with the Christmas decorations and we read it on Christmas Eve ....... to our Grandson now! Christmas just wouldn't be the same without it!
Back to the tag ....... the top half of the tag (the sky) was inked using Distress inks - Tea Dye/Vintage Photo and Aged Mahogany. I placed a circle mask on there first to create the moon.
I then stamped Santa and his reindeer (IndigoBlu's Here Comes Santa stamp set), using Potting Soil Archival ink, across the moon.
The town silhouette is from Inkylicious and has also been stamped using the brown archival ink. i then sprinkled the tag with chunky white embossing powder, and added a touch of glitter to the moon.
The sentiment banner across the bottom is a chipboard embellishment I found in my Christmas stash ...... I think it's from an old BoBunny collection, not sure which one though, but it's perfect for this tag.
To finish off I added the festive red bow along with some die cut holly leaves and a couple of shiny sleigh bells
Only one more tag to go!
Oh well must dash ....... busy day today. Trip into town this morning ..... if I can get everyone out of bed that is! (I think hubby might just have a hangover ...... it was rather later when he got in last night!) Chris needs to go to the opticians, hubby needs new shoes ..... and I need to look for the all important frock for the Christmas Do ...... something I'm not looking forward to.
Then it's off to the wine store to pick up what we ordered from the wine tasting a few weeks ago. Good job I'm off the antibiotics finally ...... I can actually have a glass or two (HIC!)
Then this afternoon, it's off to the north of the island .... up to Ramsey, and my favourite shop. According to their Facebook page it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in there so ...... it may be time to add to my every growing bauble collection or, even do a spot of Christmas shopping. They always have gorgeous scarves in there (a weakness of mine) and beautiful handmade jewellery. Their scented candles are just heaven, and they have fabulous home decor pieces ....... could be an expensive trip!!
Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy your Saturday. I'll be back later on with that final tag!
Cheerio until then
