DAY 4 - 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS




Morning everyone..... I come to you shamefaced because I don't have a Father Christmas Stamp or paper with him on it.......however did that happen, just cannot believe it....... Not got a facet but have got fragments so I did at least do the technique on that........but to hang it all I stamped the clustered flower upside down - hence its now a balloon.... The paper and image came from a Complimentary copy of the 'Making Cards Magazine' and Gems were from stash and aryclic paint for Snow. The alcohol inks used on the fragment were Plum and Cranberry. So this tag is not completely recycled, unless you call going in the rubbish bin and back out again recycled.....lol
Anyway I did the best I could. Nothing like Tims but hopefully the next one will be.

Artyjen is hosting a fun gallery of these tags and this is really worth a visit......wow there are some fabby crafters displaying their tags on it. Am entering this tag in Jennies Artistic Stamper Blog in the hope I might win a Father Christmas stamp.........lol

This totally gorgeous Pear made of fabric came from Efemera-Ink........yep I won it, how lucky can you get.....ooh its so fabulous, thank you so much Effie you create so many wonderful items.

Thank you everyone for sticking with me on these tags even though I cannot always get it quite right, well hardly ever............lol Have a Happy Sunday and take care, Annette x
PS... just seen Day 5.......would you believe it.........its another Father Christmas.......oh nooooooooo
