PDE Linky Party #14 ~ Tags

Good morning crafty friends and welcome to another mid-way point of the two week challenge at PDE Linky Party.  You have one week left to show us your projects of either a tag or adding a tag to your creation.  Tags come in all shapes and sizes and I look forward to seeing yours.

The tag I have to show you is a new to me technique that I tried.  In April at Scrapfest I bought myself some Tim Holtz mini distress inks and have been wanting to try them out.  I started with a white tag and inked it up with Christmas colours.  This process was messy and I just played with the ink and water until I got a look I liked.  I then let it dry and embossed the stamps, added the poinsettia die and the ribbons.  Voila, one tag done for a gift :)


A closer look at the embossing and die cut detail:

Tag ~ Recollections (3" x 6")
Tim Holtz Mini Distress Inks ~ Mowed Lawn, Brick Red
Stamps ~ Frog's Whiskers (Poinsettia), Hero Arts (Sentiment)
Versamark Stamp Pad
Stampendous Embossing Powder ~ White
Spellbinders ~ Nestabilities Layered Poinsettia Die
Jewels ~ Recollections
Ribbons/Fibers ~ "Use It Up" Inventory

I would like to enter this tag into the following challenges:
Inky Chicks Challenge #33  ~ Christmas in July
Quirky Craft Challenge #14 ~ Christmas in July with Die Cuts/Punches
Robyn's Fetish Challenge #220 ~ Christmas in July
The Glory of Christmas Challenge #37 ~ Anything Goes as Long as its Christmas

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a wonderful day and I hope to see your tags at the Linky Party HERE!!!! 
Until next time, keep crafting.

Pause, Dream, Enjoy Linky Party #13 ~ Many Layers

Good Morning and Happy Canada Day to all of my fellow Canadians.  I hope you are enjoying your day whether it is your only day off or the last of a four day weekend.  It is time for week #2 of inspiration for the PDE Linky Party featuring many layers.  Don't forget to go check out what all of my design team sisters have made today and last week and leave us a comment so we know you visited.

My card today celebrates our country.  Canada is turning 146 years old and we celebrate with family, fun, fireworks, cook outs, picnics, etc., all the fun Summer brings. Canada's national sport for Winter is ice hockey and lacrosse is the national Summer sport.  This little cutie, Jenny from Canada, manufactured by the Canadian company Your Next Stamp represents this well.

A Little Bit Country

Hello there.  Last Saturday I had high hopes of joining the on line crop with my friends from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps.  You see I was supposed to actually be cropping with them but for health reasons I got benched and had to stay home.  So the next best thing.....spend the entire day in my craft room and get all of the challenges done with more besides.  Yep, high hopes....it is a week later and I have been able to finish one challenge and this card is for the second one.  Don' t think I will get three more done before tomorrow at midnight.  It seems all I have been doing lately is travelling to the doctor and sleeping.  I pray there is an end in sight.  Finally it seems a treatment is working. On to my card.  It uses Lulu from the Down on the Farm 2 set and is just too cute.
