2 Tags and a LO, freezing rain and icy roads....
As I dragged myself out of bed an hour ago I heard on the radio that the rain which started in the night has fallen onto the icy roads and caused *Blitz* ice, and that it would be better not to drive if it's not necessary. So, I have changed my plans and will get the shopping this afternoon now, and hope that by then the ice will be washed away. In the meantime, I have time for a bit of crafting, blogging and I should find time for a little h*******k, don't even like to write that nasty word!
It is unfortunately necessary though, as I have a weekend visitor.
Yesterday I made 2 tags for an extra challenge in the Gingersnaps group, it's a recipe challenge for 2011 - 2 stamps - 0 diecuts - 1 ribbon - 1 piece of bling, so the tags have been made to this recipe. The backgrounds have been distressed with TH inks onto recycled card cut from my old calendar. Had to resist the temptation to stick more onto them, recipe is recipe, but it was fun to do.
The LO is a 12x12" print of a photo that I took from my balcony while the big snow was here. Printed a caption on it, used a few left over Xmas decorations and some ancient rub ons, which took ages to stick as they seem to have dried out.
It is a very simple LO, no stamping, no serious work,just for fun and just the expression of a heartfelt wish for warmth, sunshine, green leaves and flowers!
Thanks for looking and have a nice day!
