Hi All

Sorry I have been a very naughty blogger again but my mojo did a bunk right before Christmas and has only just started to make a reappearance (thankfully)

This fortnight's challenge over at Crafty Boots has been chosen by Helen  and is New, this could be new crafty stash (which is what I have used) a new technique, new home, new baby, etc.

So on to my piece for this I decided to make a tag and use some new die cuts I got of eBay and a relative new technique which I learnt at one of the lovely  Gabrielle's classes last year.

I took a size 8 tag and covered it in metal tape that you can get form the hardware stores and cut it in to little pieces and stuck them to the tag (This is a technique I learnt at Gabrielle's class where we made a block which I really must upload onto here)  I the applied alcohol (pool, mountain rose & hazelnut) inks to it and ran through an embossing folder.

I inked my die cuts in peacock feathers distress ink then popped a mask over it to add the flowers and stamped the word dream on to the cotton reel.  I added ribbon, lace and gems from my stash.

I thought I would share a couple of snowy pics with you too as we've had quite a bit here in Leicestershire

Hope you can join us over at the Crafty Boots challenge.
