Boxing Day (a.k.a. - Wednesday 26th)

Morning readers,

I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful day yesterday and that Santa was kind to you all. Whilst I published a post yesterday, it was really only to wish you all a Happy Christmas and I didn't post any makes ...... I don't usually post on a Tuesday so here I am, publishing my usual Wednesday (Post Christmas) post .... although, that said, my mojo's been in hiding for a few days and I'm a little short on ideas so, I decided to try making two tags - one white and one kraft

My two tags, side by side
And a closer view of the kraft tag
And a closer view of the white tag
Materials used:
  • Two tags, one kraft and one white
  • Katzelkraft rat image stamped using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Crayola coloured pencils used to colour - I used the same combination of colours for both images the only difference is that I blended some of the colours on the white tag, using gamsol
I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - challenge No. 96 - ANYTHING GOES - 2nd entry
  2. Dragonfly Dreams - December challenge - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Through The Craft Room Door - December 25th challenge - ANYTHING GOES
  4. Lemon Shortbread - challenge No. 83 - ANYTHING GOES - 2nd entry
And now .... I just don't seem to be able to stop myself making Christmas cards!!!
