Good morning to you all I hope you are all keeping warm   It is still snowing here in Sheffield the snow must be over a foot deep. There are no buses no trains the roads are clossed and I am fed up of being stuck in now. Sorry that is my moan for the day.

Well it is Wednesday again and that can only mean one thing. “COOKING IT UP WITH KATIE” The recipe today is

1. Green

2. Card set or Tag Set

3. Vintage

Today we are being sponsored by Prairie Fairy

I have made a tag set which is different for me. I first cut the tags with my cuttlebug then I have covered them with backing paper from Craftwork Cards “Ooh La La”. I have distressed the edges of them. I printed off the” Poinsettia” image from Prairie Fairy and also a sentiment. I coloured the image with Promarkers cut them out and attached them to the tags along with the sentiments and ribbon. I also made a little box to keep them in. I hope you like

Love your gorgeous tags Doreen.

Jules said...

Wow Doreen

That sounds like an awful lot of snow!!!!

We all dream of being "snowed in" but the reality of it isn't that good.

We haven't had as much as you but it is coming down very heavy today.

Loving your tags. They really are gorgeous - and lovely to have their own little box too. Personally I would find these too lovely to use .. .. and certainly too gorgeous to part with if they were attached to one of my presents.

Great work.

Hope you are not feeling too much of a prisoner today!! LOL!!!

Keep warm and safe.

Love Jules xx
