TLT - Pinky's Challenge - Tag It!

Wayhayyyyy! It's time for another TLT and we've got pinkalicious Pinky chosing this weeks challenge which is Tag It! But before I go into details I want to thank everyone who entered Julie's challenge of NO DESIGN PAPER! Hopefully you all weren't such woosies like the Ladybugs lol. Head on over to the Challenge Blog to see if you're the winner of a stamp of your choice or a top three winner :-D If you see your name email me with your choice and where you'd like it sent.

Onto today's challenge...Tag It! It means what it says...make a card or project either in the shape of a tag or have a tag somewhere on it. If it's got a tag then that's all you need :-D

Today came awful quick after my busy schedule of the last week but an idea came to me over the weekend and I set to work yesterday. I'll admit I'm not 100% about it...I love the idea...not necessarily the execution lol. Anyway, you can be the judges...just go easy on me ok?

I've been desperate to use the new Christmas Add-Ons again so I used the tree, star, pot and bow. It's so much fun building up an image with the layering....and so EASY! I came across my flabulous SU! pointsettia embossing folder. I saw it on Dawn Griffiths blog last year and just HAD to have it. I kept it WOW so the image would pop. I added Glamour Dust to the dots on the embossing though you can't see how sparkly they are :-(

After colouring the image in with my Copics I added some Topaz and Siam Swarovski Crystals to the tree as baubles...they are truly sparklicious.

If you couldn't see my tags then here they are! I punched out tags using my SU! Tiny Tag Punch and ran them through the computer spelling out JOY and fixed them to the suede ruffle ribbon with micro glue dots finishing them off with crystals

I finished off the inside Mary J style :-D The sentiment is computer generated.

A few of us Ladybugs have had some technical issues with Blogger this week and wonder if any of you have too? I spent ages last week trying to comment on the Challenge entries only to find after commenting and clicking 'post comment' the comment disappears. Also one or two Ladybug's have found weeks/months of their postings disappeared and have tried to repost them. So if you find there isn't a comment from one of us Ladybugs don't think we haven't's just Blogger is acting up....again!

We hope you enjoy this weeks Challenge. Don't forget to leave us some love...everyone needs love sometimes :-D

Have  great week

Catch ya later x

No need to be modest, Kerry. Your card is absolutely gorgeous! If you're still unsure, you can always send it to me for Chrismas, lol. I love every little detail, including the fab ribbon and the sparkles on the background. You can see them if you click on the image and enlarge it a bit!
