Card and Tag

Hello and good morning...

Well, hubby is home and happy to be back except for the weather of course, which has been quite icy.
I enjoyed my 'me' time and doodle around with paint to make a few Christmas cards
Here's one of them with a matching tag


The little die cut is a new one from a place here in the UK called The Works...
We don't have much in the way of craft shops but lately this store has been adding a few stamps and dies to their range of books and art supplies and they are really inexpensive, so to my British friends- Check them out!


I'm not really a tag maker but I hate to waste any of the painted pieces and this little scrap made a really sweet tag 



 I thought I'd enter it at
Where Diane Jaquay is the featured artist - This is her lovely tag


I hope you have a lovely Saturday ...

What a beautiful Christmas card and matching tag, to boot! I would have never thought of that combo...and it's a great one! :)

I'd love to watch you paint sometime. You have such an interesting style with all the streaks and splotches and splatters. I absolutely love it. Always beautiful colors with the clean white and fabulous die cuts. I'm a fan!

I'm totally in awe, once again! I adore both of these projects, Ros--gorgeous colors & design--love that branch! Glad hubby is home safe & sound. We have a bit of everything today, including sun which lets Fritz get in some baths on the deck.

Wow! Your water coloring on your card and tag is fabulous, Ros! Love the colors and specks of gold...so pretty!! Glad your husband is back home and hope he enjoyed his trip! The weather here is a bit chilly, but at least the sun is shining.
