Getting an early start .......

Happy Friday ......

A nice early post to get the weekend started ...... lots to do today.

I'm playing catch up with this year's 12 Tags of Christmas with Loll & Friends event ......

It's Tag number 10 this morning ...... I'm nearly there

This cute little tag was made using leftover bits ..... I haven't had time to clear my desk this week so there's stuff everywhere!

The tag is one I rescued from earlier in the week ..... things didn't go according to plan, I didn't like the bottom of it but I didn't want to throw the whole thing away, so I chopped it down ....... I knew the top would come in handy

The flower is made using the smaller layers from the Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die.  I've been cutting a whole bunch of these for a workshop coming up soon ...... I need more of the larger ones than the small so they're piling up on my desk.  By the time I've finished that project I'll never want to see a poinsettia again ..... but that.s another story!

They've been cut from smooth watercolour card, inked around the edges with Fired Brick Distress Ink, and then I spritzed them with Perfect Pearls and left them to dry.  I love how the ink has blended over the card and mixed with the Perfect Pearls ..... looks really pretty.

Once it was all dry I added some extra foliage behind ...... found in my box of many left over die cut bits, and attached a jingle bell to the centre.

The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Tin of Tags  ....... a great little stamp set designed for tags, but not just Christmas ones so you can use it all year round

Well ..... only 2 more tags to go.  Time to get out of my PJs and get on with the day.  I'll be back later with Tag number 11 ..... see you then!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day

Cheerio until next time


  1. Gorgeous soft and pretty poinsettia and so clever using a bell for the center. I love your speckled stencil for your splattering of sparkly snow. TFS Linda. Hugs, Nancy

  2. Great save with the tag background Linda. Looks amazing with the beautiful layered poinsettia. Love how the fired brick mixed with the peal spray to create a soft pink poinsettia --- gorgeous! Thanks again for sharing with my tag event! xx

  3. These leftover bits from other projects went together perfectly! I love the jingle bell in the center of the poinsettia! Great touch!

  4. This tag looks so soft and pretty. The foliage and jingle bell are nice touches. I love the look done with the pink and Perfect Pearls -- what a good idea.
