I'm Back!!!!!

Good Evening peeps,
Well firstly I must apologise for my absence and thank everyone for their lovely emails and well wishes. Lot's of things have been going on and many not so good so I needed to channel all of my strength to get through the last couple of months and that meant I had to put some other things on hold.
Anyway things are a little more settled and I couldn't stay away from blogland any longer. I found the inspiration I needed on some of my fave challenge blogs and here is what I came up with:


I haven't made a wine/bottle tag for ages and had great fun creating this one. I used the gorgeous new Edwin on Skis and coloured him with Distress Markers. The beautiful die is Snowflake Corner from Memory Box and the punch is MS Aspen PATP. I have faux stitched all edges and distressed with Pumice Stone DI and Glamour Dust. Lastly I aded some yummy pearl stars and a cute little star charm.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
MDUC - #174 'Create a Wine Tag'
Midweek Magnolias - #39 'Starlight Starbright'
Tilda's Town - #29 'Celebrate Christmas'
Simply Magnolia - Sketch Challenge
Totally Gorjuss - #159 'Don't Be Square'
Live and Love Crafts - #5 'Christmas'
Promise I'll be back soon to share some of the projects I have been working on.

    Sorry to hear you've been going through a rough period, I do hope it's better by now. Gorgeous Christmas card; I love how you've punched out the snowflake frame, and the Magnolia sentiment is one of my favourite Christmas stamps! Thanks for joining LLC for our November challenge.
