Tag #4 .......

Hi there,

How's your Sunday been?...... as you can see I managed to sneak some time in the old craft room again, inbetween popping into town for a little retail therapy (didn't buy much for me but the little man did quite well out of Grandma and Grandad!) Lunch at McDonald's, again with the little man (Alex said he wanted to go as we hadn't been there in ages!!) - oh joy!! And then I've just finished cooking (and eating!) Sunday dinner ...... lemon, chilli and herb roast chicken, and all the trimmings .... yummeee!

I think it's time to put my feet up and relax for a while ......

Thank you to everyone who's commented so far on my tags for Loll's event, I really appreciate you all taking the time.
If you haven't joined in the fun yet, and would like to give it a go then don't worry,  the event is open until the 16th of November so there's loads of time yet.  I may have just caught up by then!

Here's my tag for Day 4 ...... again I've taken my inspiration from Loll and created a little winter scene for the reindeer

Tag #4
I've inked a piece of white cardstock using Tea Dye Distress ink along with a mask to create the hills and a punched circle for the moon.

With the mask for the hills still in place, I stamped my little forest using my favourite (oh no .... not those again!) Christmas trees from Clarity Stamps.   Anyone that's been following my blog recently will know how much I love these trees ........ in all 4 sizes!!

I added a touch of glitter and a sprinkling of chunky white embossing powder to give the look of falling snow (something else that gets used a lot at this time of year!)

The little deer has been die cut from Kraft card, using the Tim Holtz Mini Reindeer Movers and Shapers die.  I added a touch of Distress ink around the edge, stamped part of him with a flourish design and gave him some sparkly antlers ..... he's even got a red nose!

To finish off I tied some bakers twine around his neck and added a pretty festive bow to the tag.

Day 4 done!  I think Day 7 has just gone live ...... so I've still a way to go!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your evening.  I think a night in front of the TV is calling .... the ironing can wait!!

Cheerio until next time



  1. Beautiful tag Linda. Love the snowy hills and moon, all done in neutrals ... those trees are really pretty, no wonder you like to use them!
