Tag You're It Challenge

The challenge on Tag You're It this week is to create a card using the word DREAM or a derivative of the word...I'm still in Christmas mode and because I'm up-to-date almost...no mad deadlines...only a few commission cards and none of them urgent...I spent the whole day yesterday mooching around...it feels like a bit of an anti-climax after 3 weeks of hard slog on the Christmas samples. Now I have lots of new stuff to play with but seem to have lost my mojo big time...hopefully a couple of days off will do the trick.
Decided that since I'm still very much in Christmas mode I would make a tree hanger or it could be a wall hanger for the challenge. Two ovals cut out with Fiskars Shapecutter and template...stamped with my favourite snowflake stamp and Versamark and then embossed with White Embossing powder. Coloured with Tim Holtz Distressing Inkpad...wiping over with a kitchen towel to remove the ink from the snowflakes...added a strip of blue vellum ..a few laser cut snowflakes...a bit of bling and some gorgeous Costco organza ribbon.

Don't panic...I don't have my Christmas tree up yet...this was hung on the conifer which is just outside my cubbyhole door...the old gal hasn't quite lost the plot yet.
  • Stamp: Hero Arts..Snowflake Rosette
  • Ink Pad: Tim Holtz Distressing...Weathered Wood
  • Snowflakes: Crafty Bitz
  • Alphabet: Hero Arts..Artistic Upper Case Alphabet
  • Word: Studio G Clear Stamp Set
The weather is gorgeous here today so I think I will have a spell tidying the garden and then fall out with the mountain of ironing....yuck...yuck...my least favourite job but the clothes available to wear are approaching nil so needs must...enjoy the rest of your weekend and hopefully I'll be back in the swing again next week.

Gorgeous tag as are the snowflakes! I was looking for that stamp, but couldn`t find something. are you sure it is named Snowflake Rosette? I would be glad if you could tell me the number, because I am a big fan of snowflakes and this would be a beautiful addition to my snowflake collection.
