Papertake Weekly - When is a card not a card ? When its a.....

Whoooo hooo ! I'm back ! and good it feels too. I took a break for a couple of weeks as I got myself into a right ole tizz ! The house was a tip and was beginning to resemble a haunted house with all the cobwebs and dust around. My ironing pile was totally out of control with even Summer clothes still waiting to be ironed and I was feeling overwhelmed with the mess and my DT work, commission work, kids homework and activities and I just burned out.

You will be pleased to hear the house has been blitzed and is looking like new and all the ironing has been done and everyone is happy and I feel more in control - phew !

I am back with the first of my DT's and it's Papertake Weekly. Our challenge this week is ...

When is a card not a card ? When its a.......

Gift tag !

I made a circular card, punched some snowflakes and stuck them around the edge and then stamped the Lili of the Valley snowman image onto a circular piece of card and then layered it. I was a bit silly really because I put the ribbon on the back of the card and in hindsight should have attached it to the front of the card because then you could have used it as a decoration for the tree when its been used as a tag ! I shall remember that for next time !!

I added some glossy accents to the decorations on the snowman's arms and lots of Stickles for the snow.

The sentiment I made on my PC.

The ribbon is from my stash.

We hope you can join in with our challenge this week. The DT have made some amazing creations for your inspiration as always.
