TAG #11

I really love tag #11. The reindeer is so gorgeous. Had to get DH to cut it out for me because cutting grungeboard inflames my thumb joint. Another downside of advancing years.

Anyway, I knew I couldn't make those brads so there was no use bothering about them. I have covered buttons with material before and went off looking in my sewing boxes to see if I had any blanks left, but I hadn't. The simplest thing to do was cover large brads. I found one already sporting a spotty material so I used that as it was. I covered the largest with a Santa picture and the medium one with a little sticker. All a bit of fun.

I have had a ball making these tags this year, so tomorrow will be a bitter sweet day. Sad because the game will end but at the same time, poor Tim must be feeling the pressure so he well deserves a break.

I wonder what #12 has in store for us?

I really like the green and cream on this one and then the striking reindeer. Are you going to keep your tags or give them away on Xmas prezzies?

These are going nowhere Sharon. I've had a ball making them so will keep them as a record of the techniques.
