Tag It!

Well I did get all excited on Wednesday night, it was snowing when I went to bed & all I could think about was playing with Nico in it when we woke up!
But when we woke up, it was all frozen over & really slippy...so no playing in the snow for us!
But fingers crossed they have forecast it for tomorrow lol I just want an inch for an hour, then it can go. I just want to see what Nico makes of it!

Anyhoos, I'm here today to share with you my latest creation for My Time To Craft. Where this fortnight we are asking you to...

TAG IT!

make a tag or make a card & add a tag to that. It must be a made tag, not a stamped one tho ( I mean those LOTV tag stamps are not allowed)

Over on Facebook, Simply Betty Stamps are doing a monthly progressive challenge &  their theme is tags, so I thought I would combine the two!


I forgot to take a photo of the back. Along with the image you get two sentiments & I used
 'You're Just My Type' & its on the back. I just loved colouring in her dress & playing with her pleats.
