Anything Goes taking a little break...

Hi Girls...

Today is normally the day for another Anything Goes challenge.... and this time it was supposed to be Altered Art or Tags...  so I got these ready..  but unfortunately have to tell you that Anything Goes is now going to be taking a short break until the New Year...  so there's no challenge today... :(

Some of our lovely DT have been going through major life issues...  so we all had a natter and thought rather than keep the challenge going half-heartedly, we would come back at full strength after Christmas and also have fab new DT members along with us too, to provide lots of wonderful inspiration.

Soooooo  ....  I decided to go ahead and pop my tags on here anyway.... to show you what I've been working on. These were inspired by the lovely Elaine at A Technophobe's Blog...  when I saw some that she'd done last year... I just had to have a go.

The actual tag die is from a Papertrey ink die..... the poinsettia is a Tim Holtz die, cut using dark red pattered DP, with distress ink round the edges.  There is a little button in the centre, and some twine for a little knot, and also for the tag string!  The little sentiments (which I use a LOT) are from Paula Pascual and are from the Essential Christmas set.  I've stamped them in Memento brown ink..  I thought it looked better on the kraft than black.

So there you go....  hope you like these....  and hope you'll join us again in the New Year.... as they say... Watch This Space!!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting
