Holiday Tag And Humans - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Happy Friday!

A beautiful sunny start to the day. I've got my 4 year old's Christmas play to go to this afternoon. When I asked him what character he would be playing, he replied "a human"!!!! Wonder if it was a choice between humans and aliens?! It seems early for a Christmas play to me but I think there are a lot of festive activities to fit in before the end of term.

On to my inspirational tag for the Daring Card Makers Challenge this week. It's the second of the 'Step Away From The Cards' challenges, the first being bags and boxes a couple of weeks ago. This time it's creating gift tags.

I used a ready made tag with an aperture I had in my stash and used the Sizzix dies I got in the sale a couple of months ago. At the time I thought I'd spent too much (as you do) but they're worth it as I've used them a lot (that's my justification in any case!).

To embellish the tag I used felt in 2 different colours for the holly which I die cut and added painted wooden berries.  A little bling on the snowflakes and twine completed it. Both the lime green and white are glitter card although you can't see from the photo as well.

I hope that you'll join in with the challenge here and see the other creations made by the Design Team.

Enjoy your weekend,

Awesome tag Shabneez, I love the bright colours. I hope the play went well- we have 3 weeks until ours but Samuel had to audition last week. Hopefully he'll get a good part! Isaac has been singing Frosty the Snowman for weeks- they start preparing early in Reception. Cathy x
