Snow

This is my tag for this week's challenge on Tag Tuesday.
An American Crafts tag, embossed with snowflakes on the Cuttlebug then coloured with Iced Spruce distress ink. Blue snowflakes cut and embossed from sparkly scrap paper (again on the bug). TH tape and button. Ribbon and crystals from stash.
Image and title from "Home Words" 1883-84.


Admittedly more appropriate for this month in 2010 and 2011!! This year we have gale force winds and rain instead of snow....
not sure which I prefer??

I really like the colour combo you've chosen for this tag, it goes so well with the jewelled button. Love the big blue snowflakes too.

I'm so glad you joined in with Tag Tuesday, Sue :o) I hope you are ok.

Love the tag and the pretty colors. We are having strange weather here in Canada too. The winds are over 100 km/h and there are grass fires on some of the farms near here. Take care and hugs to you :)

Gorgeous tag :)

I was going to say I prefer the snow but then I remembered how cold it was and how cut off we would be in the new house. I don't like bone chilling wind though... I do love the dramatic skies we are having mind you - need to remember my camera!

Happy New year Suzie! Lovely to see you back blogging again. Love your tag, just lovely!!! We have had terrible winds, so much so it has taken our fencing down on one side of our garden, yikes! The lot will need replacing, so goodness knows how much that little lot will come to :( Hey ho, spring is on its way so happy days.
Suzie xxxx :)
