Friday the 13th ........ Hey! it could be your lucky day ......

Good morning!,

Yes it's Friday the 13th ...... ohhhh ..... unlucky for some!!  Not for you though, right! (fingers crossed ....... not that I'm superstitious or anything ..... who me?!)

I've got a little bit of festive inspiration for you today .... well it is only 41 days until the BIG day!!
Have you done all your Christmas shopping .... or are you like me and not even started yet!  No that's not true, I have bought 2 small Christmas presents .... just stocking fillers but they will need wrapping and a tag putting on them

You know me ... I love my tags and this one is really simple to do.  Would be great on a gift for a guy I think.

I started by adding a touch of colour (Hickory Smoke Distress Ink) to just one half of the tag, then I stamped and embossed snowflakes over the top,

I spread some white texture paste across the other half of the tag, leaving quite a rough finish to it. While the paste was still a little wet, I stamped into it using the boot prints (from a Stampin Up! set called Daring Adventure).  When the paste was dry, I over stamped the boot prints using a black ink to define them a little more .....

I die cut the letters from red glitter card and attached them over the snowflakes ......

and then finished off with just a touch of glitter ...... and a festive ribbon.

Now it's your turn.  Have I tempted you to give the challenge a go .... I do hope so! Can't wait to see what you all create ..... have fun!

If you've been reading my blog recently you'll know that I'm tag mad at the moment.  One of my blog friends is hosting a special event ...... Loll's 12 Tags of Christmas (Stamping with Loll) and I've been joining in the fun

The challenge is currently on Day 9 ..... however I've only done upto Tag #7 so ....... I thought that this could be Tag #8 (anyone would think I planned it!!).  
Not only has the lovely Loll got her Tag event going on ..... this months HLS Christmas Challenge is all about TAGS

and ..... their brand new Mixed Media Challenge also has a TAG theme so I shall be linking up there too ...

Now that doesn't happen very often here does it ....... 3 challenges (4 if you include Craft Stamper from just one project!)

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day and have a great weekend.

Cheerio until next time

Fabulous! Love the way you used the texture paste as snow for the footprints. The red glitter is perfect for the die cut sentiment. Thanks for joining us at Happy Little Stampers.
