Stamp with fun #123–DT project

Good morning dear friends.  Thank you to everyone who continued to visit my blog last week and leave me such lovely comments.  It was wonderful to read them on my return from holiday.  We had a brilliant time, the weather was perfect for us (as it was sunny and dry but not too hot) and we all enjoyed our break away.  It’s great to go away but it’s really nice to come back too isn’t it.  I’ve had a hectic weekend catching up with everything so I will try and pop around your blogs sometime this week, as I’m lucky enough to be off work again this week *woohoo*.

This morning we have a brand new challenge for you over at stamp with fun challenge and this week we want to see your “tags”.  Now I don’t make many tags so I really enjoyed this challenge and I’m quite pleased with the finished result.  Here is my tag:

SWF #123 - tags

SWF #123 - tags (close up)

I made my own tag shape from white cardstock and punched the bottom for a bit of extra interest using my MS border punch.  The image is from sugar nellie stamps from the simply sassy range and is called ‘5th avenue’ and I coloured her with my promarkers.   I have bought so many stamps recently from sugar nellie that I thought it was time that I actually started inking them up lol!  The papers are by authentique from the ‘uncommon’ paper pad which I got from Crafty Emma’s store – I only received them on Saturday but I had to use them immediately as they are sooooo gorgeous. 

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples once again this week, so please pop over and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us. 

I would like to enter my tag into the following challenges:

The sugar bowl challenge – sketch + option lace

A spoonfull of sugar challenge – create a tag

Papertake challenge – anything goes + option metal (my eyelet)

Crafts and me challenge – anything goes

Little darlings challenge – girly

I hope you can join in with our challenge this week and I look forward to seeing all your gorgeous tags.  I will be back later with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge but until then thanks for stopping by.
