Got your cards made and mailed? Gifts wrapped? Home decorated and baking done? Me...none of the above! I am, however, nearly done making and mailing cards (except for my family's, which will be delivered when we visit next weekend); nearly done with my gifts (we give presents to our niece and nephew, following the "Something they want, something they need, something to read" rules. Ms. Niece is getting a box filled with crafting things as one of her 'somethings' and Mr. Nephew likely getting Lego. Kids *need* Lego! The books are ready to be wrapped, too!); sort of done with decorating, and because our place is small, I can't do very much. As for baking...aside from baking cookies to tide us over for the next few days, I'm leaving the sweet treats to my mom. Her shortbread is *the* best!
Anyway....today, my amazing DT and I invite you to join us in playing at Tag, You're It #37, where your wondering eyes will behold this dazzling beauty Donna created for us. Classy and exquisite!
As you'll see on the challenge site, my team mates have designed stunning translations of Donna's tag. Me...well, perhaps mine's not so 'elegant' but kind of fun and, I hope, a little bit pretty! I wanted to use a clear tag base, but...nothing in my limited stash fit the bill. I wanted a clear feature, so I adapted...and my rendition looks like this:
My PTI candy corn shaker, transformed (and a challenge to photograph, with the snowflake placed along the edge)! I drew inspiration from Donna's tag with:
- the shaker acetate = her 'transparent' background
- black, white and green beads + the black white snowflake, sporting a green center = her colour scheme and, for the snowflake, her flower placement.
Wishing you some 'quiet' times, outside the hustle and bustle of Christmas preparations. Thank you for spending part of your *me* time with me!
