Tag 444! snowbound!

This is tag no 444! OK I am lying..it is only tag 4 of my withdrawal...not sure why as I thought I had done a tag everyday since T!m's gorgeous tags, but seem to be lagging behind! lol The snow heavens opened yesterday here, and we are surrounded by gorgeous white stuff! Sadly I am not able to get to see my Mum who is in hospital, so hoping to get there tomorrow. Mind you the trains are running.. that is in itself a miracle but she has ordered me not to make the trip! Think that was the influence of the morphine... so I have obeyed and been a good girl! For those of you who sent their wishes, thank you it is much appreciated, and there is a long way to go..but all is good at the moment :)
In the meantime while snowbound, I made a little tag. This time I used an embossing folder of the Snowman. I embossed it once on a tag and cut out the snowman in negative, and laid it on top of a distress inked tag, and just used a pearl dabber to make out the snowman before running the inked tag back through the embossing die. Does that make sense? I was going to clear emboss some snowflakes on the tag, but horror! I cannot find my pot of clear embossing powder! Mislaid in the piles of *stuff* filling my studio!! So I dabbered them instead!
Add a sticker from the seasonal sticker pad .. snow has come to my tags!!

 I am entering this in Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge as well as my own ( not that I can win anything...but it is just fun!)
Keep warm
Hugs
