Hi everyone,  I hope you are all well and have enjoyed this last long weekend of the summer. We had  a lovely visit with our Son and his family on Sunday.  The boys had been asking to see us..I think they miss my cooking :D   They brought Tegan with them, their bull mastiff who starts crying as soon as the van stops in the driveway....she loves visiting us.  Could it be because I spoil her? ......

 ***************************************************************************************

Today starts a new challenge at Cards for Men and the theme is "Tags".   Since I'm rubbish at making  tags I decided to make a Christmas card and add tags to it.   This way I'm adding to my stash and lightening the load come November!

Our sponsor this week is Fresh Brewed Designs and I chose to use this Wonky Christmas Tree and coloured it with my copics.    The paper I used to print my digi was not Copic friendly and didn't blend the way I wanted...but it was the right base colour :D   I painted the circles using Gold Smooch.



                          Details:
DP: Déja Views The Sharon Ann Collection, Home for the Holidays ( a very old set)

Green & striped tags are from the same collection as well as the striped border.

Happy Holiday tag is a SB Back-to-Basics Tag, printed in Word on Kraft paper, embossed with SU Bravo Burgundy ink.

Gold frame - SP Romantic Rectangles



I would like to enter the following challenges:
Graph'it markers - Red & Green 
Make it Monday Challenge #156
The Christmas Challenge #15 - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge - September

Thanks so much for stopping by and your lovely comments are always appreciated.
hugs
