Happy New Year!
Happy New Year ladies! I'm back home after spending Christmas with my family in the UK and I couldn't wait to get crafting once again. I got loads of new craft stuff for christmas and I couldn't resist buying a few extra bits and bobs myself....I'm sure you all know how it is!!! I ended up with so much I couldn't bring everything back due to the pescy weight limits on our flight....but the rest of it will be arriving at the end of March with my parents!! Anyway onto the challenge....One of my failings at Christmas was that I didn't make enough tags.... I thought I didn't have enough, but seriously I should have made about five times as many!!! I have a few male birthdays coming up so I'll not be caught out again!! The challenge on Tag You're It Week 39 is to use new stash and I also followed the sketch from Secret Crafter Challenge 13. I used blue, navy and orange card, the penny black stamp is called contented and it is coloured with distress inks, the paper was received in some blog candy from Sally, I used the paisley embossing folder to emboss the navy card and I used a star shaped die to make the silver stars and finally the sentiment was done on my computer using the font segoe script. For the "new stash" element my cuttlebug was a much anticipated christmas prezzie (I love it), the stamp was one of many gorgeous ones I received and I treated myself to some distress inks and a water brush (I love them too).
