Colour Christmas Red and Green!

It is cold here in the UK with snow in some parts, and heading our way in the south east tomorrow!! I am snuggled up, not! and not sure if I can cope with another bout of snow where the council can't clear the roads, and everything grinds to a halt!!  Christmas is only a week away (HELP!!)  and I still have lots to do, and yes I am keeping up with my tags for the Tag withdrawal challenge, albeit that I might be blogging them a little
Today I have made the most simplest of tags using one of Tim's Alterations embossing folders ( Merry Christmas and Vintage Holiday). So simple, just emboss it on the tag, and colour with Distress inks. (err I used red and green!) and add a small amount of Perfect Pearls powder in gold on the top half, add a red sparkly ribbon, and secure with sewing .. I can still see to thread a a needle ! result!

On a sadder note, my Mum has to go into hospital tomorrow for a major operation, so although I have done another tag for tomorrow, I have no idea what next week will bring,  but the challenge is open until after Christmas ( you can even enter your Tim tags if you are still making them, and I know some people are :)) and I will be round to see them.
Have a creative day!
