A Christmas Tag

Hello Friends,

We had wonderful spring rain this weekend and the temperature is a little bit chilly this afternoon, just perfect to keep busy with crafting. I made this Christmas tag for the Penny Black Holiday Tag challenge. As I have only two Penny Black Christmas stamps it was a bit challenging to come up with something. Shopping for Penny Black Christmas stamps will definitely be on my to-do list this week!

Challenges:

  • Penny Black stamp “Xmas Kiss” 2754H
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities  dies “Floral Doily Motifs” and “Standard Circles Small”

  • McGill leaf punch
  • Crystal beads
  • Red gemstones
  • Skwiglues glitter
  • Spectrum Noir pens for colouring
  • Hug Snug seam binding “Lipstick Red”

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I am always glad for your kind comments and visits. May your week be wonderful with lots of crafting time.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

    Hi Amelia, dankie vir al die “comments’ op my blog! Hierdie “tag” is “super cute”.
    Hoe gaan dit met die knie? Ek vat op die oomblik net hier en daar grond met al die trou reelings en moet ek nog tussen in leer vir my “Regulatory Exams” wat ons wonderlike Staatsdiens mee vorendag gekom het!!!! En ek kan nie my werk doen as ek dit nie het nie!!!! Wat die depressie betref voel ek stukke beter en sien weer kans vir die lewe!
    Liefde

    Just too cute Amelia! Wonderful design, coloring, and oh those lovely jewels really make this one spectacular tag. So glad to see you crafting and hope all is well in your section of the world. I’ve had another bout of the lung infection for the past week and just can’t seem to find the energy to create. Soon I hope! Take care dear friend. “Hugs”
