Let it Snow!

Good morning all.

Eldest has announced he is going to Bulgaria next month....oh no a boozy weekend or such thought I....but no he's off with two mates to spend two weeks helping in an orphanage! He doesn't have any details apart from dates at the moment though...there's never a dull moment!

...and thanks to the helpful receptionist at the dentist we were able to confirm he would be back in time for his appointment which he'd forgotten all about.

Sorry my title isn't a plea for a change in recent weather lol!

Today's share is a Christmas tag.

Stamps are all from Anita's, part of a set I was gifted once. Everything was stamped in versamark then heat embossed with white EP. I've used various green and blue distress inks to colour the background. Decided I would resurrect my H2O's to colour in my snowman...I can't remember the last time they saw the light of day. Ribbons, cord and lace are from my stash. Tag is finished off with a few gems, some stickles and glamour dust was used to cover the sticky tape used to fix the lace on.

  10. Now that is a very neat idea to use the glamourdust to hide the tape on the lace!! Must remember that little tip. Funny you should mention h20's as I have been looking at videos using them on You tube and was thinking it was about time mine came out to play. I love this snowman tag .
