Challenge 17 over on Karens Doodles ' Tag your it'

Good Morning ladies I hope you are all well. I am soooooo sorry for the lack of postings on here lately I have been busy making my brothers wedding invitations and have been poorly for the last few days so haven't had time to get any done :( I know it's bad when I can't craft. 

The challenge over on Karens Doodles this week is Tag your it. This can be interpreted however you wish as long as you use a Karens Doodles image. I have chosen to make a tag for one of my Christmas presents for this challenge. I am hoping to do a few more too before Christmas I think it is nice to add that little extra touch. 

Here is my tag which I made using Santa's list isn't he cute 

I coloured the image using copic markers as always :) and added a bit of clear stickles glitter glue to Bigsbys hat. I have heat embossed some snowflakes around the edge of the tag and then distressed using Tim Holtz Distress inks in tumbled glass and stormy sky. This is the same technique I am using for my brothers wedding invitations I will be sure to post a picture when they are completed.

Please be sure to enter the challenge this week over on Karens Doodles - what a great chance to get some christmas cards done too :) if you are needing some inspiration don't forget to check out the rest of the design team to see how they interpreted this challenge.

Look forward to checking out your creations.
