Happy post!

Hello blog friends!

I had 'happy post' today.... Tattered Poinsettia die from Tim Holtz!!  I always order my dies from Country View Crafts, best prices online and FREE delivery, can't get better than that!  and I only ordered the die yesterday.... fabulous service, well done CVC!

Anyway, on to my first play with the die...   I coloured my tag with peeled paint distress ink, then stamped the lovely Xmas words from Visible Image and embossed in gold.  The poinsettia has been coloured with fired brick and peeled paint distress inks and then sprayed with Spray and Sparkle, shame it doesn't show up well in the photo....  I tattered the edges of the tag and then rubbed gilding wax around the edge.



I'm feeling festive at the moment, I'd love to get out the fairy lights to cheer everything up indoors cos this horrid weather this week makes everywhere seem dreary and dark!

I hope you like my first play with the poinsettia die, I'm entering this tag in Visible Image's challenge this month, which is Make it Sparkle!  I'll also enter this tag in the Make it Monday challenge on the 11th.
Thanks for visiting today, enjoy Christmas crafting all of you! :) xxxxxxxx

Gorgeous vintage tag Wendy. Love that tattered poinsettia. I just bought the Spellbinder Poinsettia set, which is pretty but I like this one better. Do you know if the TH Dies work in a Cuttlebug? Happy Sunday, Shirleyxx
