ABC Challenge T for Tiny/Tags ,,,,mid way reminder

Hi all ,, I missed making cards for this ABC Christmas challenge last week so I am here with a reminder for you all to join in :)

The theme for this fortnight is

T for Tiny cards or Tags ,,, we would like you to make a set of 4 of them :-)

We are sponsored by our lovely teamie Lacey and she is offering a $25 voucher to her online store, Stamp and Create :-)

I decided to make a set of quick and easy tags, we all need loads of these eh !!

I used a tag die that I bought at the NEC and cut 4 white and 4 blue tags. I used some Unity penguins from a Christmas Eve Chowder set. I stamped a background of snowflakes, embossed with clear powder and then inked with Stormy Sky distress ink. I then went around the edges with Pumice stone distress ink, sprinkled with perfect pearls. I coloured the images with copics and then layered onto the blue tags. I added some glitter and a punched snowflake on each and added some ribbon to finish.

Thanks for looking, Christmas is just around the corner so I hope you will all join us :)

For my card I used this brand spanking new September House Mouse stamp of the month, this one is called Nature Bites ,,, sooo cute !! ,, just look at the size of that tummy ,, :-) Coloured with copics and the edges inked with Vintage photo ink and then dusted with bronze perfect pearls ,,, so shimmery. The papers are Cosmo Cricket and I added some American Tag twine, a button and some Hero Arts gems. I inked and added perfect pearls to all the edges and then sewed them all :-) The sentiment is from a little Hero Arts set and I added some Star Dust stickles for extra sparkle :-)
