About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Christmas Tag

The week long Christmas in July Challenge at Catch the Bug is almost over. Tomorrow is the last day. Today's challenge is a tag. So, here's my creation:
All Papers are scrap. The sentiment was printed off the computer. The ribbons were scrap from my stash. The image is from Bugaboo: Poppi Christmas Cocoa and was colored with Sharpie Markers.

Here's a closer look at the actual tag part:
Here you can tell that there is glitter on the red stripes as well as on the white part of Poppi's hat.

This tag was very quick and simple. I think I turned out pretty cute, but then I have a thing for penguins.

Have a great day!
