Christmas Tag for Sunday Stampers

I've made a tag this week; surprise, surprise; for the Sunday Stampers challenge over at Hels. the theme is 'Blue'. I'd intended to make a book using my long neglected BIA but as I've been rather busy this week settled on doing a tag, thinking it would be quick - it's a start towards making Christmas Cards LOL. I would have had time to make a book as it took me hours to do this! It was one of those times - all too often in my case :-{ - when things didn't quite work. I started on this side of the tag and wasn't happy, so turned it over to work on the other side and was even less happy with what I was doing. I've used Jennie's 'Dot's' background and also the 'Houndstooth' on the snowflake. Unfortunately as I coloured over the snowflake after stamping, so it was the same colour as the bauble (it was a bit green before), the houndstooth doesn't show up very well. I've used distress inks for the background and stamped 'Believe' on a grungeboard element ;) I cut the bauble and snowflake on my Robo but it didn't cut very well :( so methinks it may need a new blade! Can I sharpen it do you think or use a shim underneath card when cutting out. Hmm!

Hi Anne,

You commented on my blog background a while ago and I hope that I responded to you. I'm just getting Tres Joli Home up and running. But I really love your blog background, they have the cutest patterns! Just wanted to say hello. It looks like everyone is starting to get ready for Halloween & Christmas!
