Crafty Catz Challenge #348 ~ Anything Goes

Good morning, how are you all?  Well we've had a week of it weather wise, the start of the week saw rain and lots of it which lead to localised flooding but thankfully we avoided that part and now we have strong winds and its bloomin' cold!  So all the more reason to stay inside and craft!  Well this week I have finally been able to get into the craft room and do some proper crafting.  I took it easy so as not to over reach with my thumb and I managed to complete my project for Crafty Catz this week. So without further ado lets talk about this week's challenge over at Crafty Catz, it's everyones' favourite 'Anything Goes' and this week our fabulous Janette gave the DT the twist of 'a Christmas tag'  Now remember the twist is for the DT but you are more than welcome to join in with the twist if you want to.  We have a great sponsor too

So I made a Christmas tag using a wonderful image generously given to us by our sponsor.  This little cutie is called 'Toots Santa' he is coloured with copics and spectrums and I added lots of glamour dust to all the fluffy bits for that Christmas sparkle.  Die cut to trees from Kraft then embossed them and rubbed them over with white ink.  The background paper is from Bearly Mine Designs and the paper used for the bows is from Raspberry Road Designs.  Bows are cut using a TH die and I layered up the large and small ones and finished them off with a little snowflake.  The final touch was the sentiment which is a little wooden one that I have heat embossed with white sea foam powder.
