And we're off ......

Happy Thursday ......

Just thought I'd pop by and say hello as I have a little time to spare.  We're on the boat, settled in our little cabin heading across to the UK.  Goodbye island ..... see you Monday!
At least we have sunshine, and calm ish seas ...... for now anyway.

It was a bit of a busy day yesterday but ...... I took a break from the packing and found time to make my second tag for the 12 Tags of Christmas with Loll and Friends
Inspired by the deer on Loll's tag from Day 1, and Nancy's tag from Day 2 this is what I came up with.

A tag cut from Kraft card, with the fir trees stamped using brown ink (those Clarity trees are back again), and the snowy hills created with white pigment ink brushed along the edge of a piece of copier paper

A touch of glitter to the trees and a sprinkling of chunky white embossing powder adds the look of  falling snow ....

The die cut deer was one from my stash ..... already coloured, I just added the glitter to his antlers
and a tiny bit of the embossing powder before attaching him to my tag

A piece of white card across the bottom with the sentiment on also grounded the deer a little.

Well that's tag number 2 done.  I'll have to catch up with the rest next week.

It's a special day on the blog today ..... quite the milestone, I think so anyway!  I'll be back later to tell you more.

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
I'm going to have a little snooze as we had a bit of an early start.

Cheerio until next time ......


  1. Such a beautiful tag. Love the brown tones and thanks for the reminder about the Clarity Trees. Love the little touches of the chunky white snow, the hint of glitter and the little bit of embossing powder on the deer. Enjoy your time away, hope the sea remains calm and enjoy your snooze x

  2. Beautiful tag and I love the gorgeous sponging of your sky, your tree line and wonderful snow drifts for your deer. The glitter and snowfall is the perfect final touch. Beautifully designed!
