Tag 6 ish

For those of you bright enough to realise , yesterday's tag was actually number 5 , and so today I am blogging tag number 6... actually really does it matter?... I am creating and having a bit of snowbound fun! I really should be making cards..not that they will be going anywhere..the post in the UK is pretty awful with packages stuck in sorting offices, and snow thick on the ground in most places! I heard along the grapevine there isn't much in Hel's country!! lol, but she is making tags too, and giving them away.. just check out here!
Today's tag is is of the old-fashioned type.. a bit aged round the edges with a gorgeous ( not made by me..salvaged cones and bauble hanging) I used antique linen distress ink to colour with aged mahogany to edge. I added a Tim Holtz Merry Christmas in Barn Door Distress ink, and then clear embossed. The holly leaves were inked in distress ink greens, and a little bit of stickles made up the holly berries.

I have shown you mine, so if you have been making tags..come on show me yours....and add it to the sidebar linky thingy to win goodies!
I am off today to brave the cold and snow.. ( who am I kidding?..I have thick boots, gloves.. coat, scarf, hat...lol) to see my mum.. so I may not be back ... here's praying the trains don't get stuck on the ice...the roads stay clear, and the snow stays away! I expect I am living in lala land.. but am keeping my fingers crossed x
Keep warm.. and be creative!
