Tag 5

Just a little bit behind, but I do have a good excuse.  So here's Tag 5, still to start Tag 6


As usual didn't have all the correct stuff so had to improvise.  I thought the father christmas stamp was the large one, but the keen ones amongst you will have noticed that it wasn't, hence not enough space to stamp Merry Christmas at the bottom of the tag, however I did do the dabber resist round the edges, I stamped a Paperartsy holly stamp and had to use ordinary stickles, his beard etc., is glamour dust, made a flower and put a red button in the middle, this is one I made earlier out of Fimo, I didn't have any white UTEE, so just used a couple of coats of ordinary white embossing power, but I put too much white acrylic on them and they went all bubbly, but I actually like the effect, bit of a vintage look I thought.  By this time I just couldn't be ar*** to get the big shot out, find the grunge paper, because hey, have you seen the state of my desk.  Just torn a bit of card, coloured as per instructions.  I did manage to find some jingle bells, but I just could not show you the other side of my room, I am so ashamed, I had to empty every drawer, cupboard, box etc, to find the darn bells.  Anyway I'm not going to tidy it up until day 13, but it is starting to stress me out a bit because things keep falling on the floor, then I stand on them, then I swear a bit, then I turn round and my big bum knocks something else off, you get the drift, lol.

Work desk



My daughter is here at the moment so we've been chatting all day, had a spot of lunch and she's just gone with her dad for walk, I've managed to make the tag and now I've got to clear up the lunch things, the kitchen is in a mess and the dog has been going mad because we've had my son here as well, so hence dog hairs everywhere, even in the fridge, so got to hoover the fridge as well, dog owners will know what I'm talking about, lol.

Don't forget to pop over to artyjen to see T!m's Splinter Group creations.
