Saturday Stamper - Tag It!

This week's theme is Tag It. I love tags, especially on cards but this one hasn't turned out how I envisaged. For a start I made a mistake by printing onto the shiny paper & forgetting to alter the printer. So it rubbed off a bit & although it doesn't look bad, I wanted it clearer! I desperately wanted to use my angels again from Crafty Individuals & this holly from an Inkadinkado Christmas kit. I used rub on alphabets to put the bit of verse from Mary's Boy Child (my fav version is actually the Boney M hit!) I wanted to keep this an antique Christmas card but didn't have the suitable red in paper so it is done in green & gold with red touches being Mill Hill seed beads (from my cross stitch days) & a red pipe cleaner & brad. Edges inked with my fab, Timber Brown, Stazon.
Nothing much going on here, I've plenty of ideas but no motivation to get them onto paper! So typical when you actualy have the time to create!

Hey Paula dear! I'm so sorry you seem to have caught the bug that won't go away. Me too. It's been forever that I've had this phantom ache at the back of my throat but it doesn't want to come out. But I guess it's not as bad as yours! Hope you get well soon! *hugs*

Oh and it's kinda funny that we artists are never quite happy with what we've done but the rest of the world asks: "What are you talking about? It's gorgeous!"

Just goes to show that artists are perfectionists. Hehe.

I still say your work is gorgeous. =)
