Waiting for snow

I am very dissappointed that we did not get snow for christmas this year. We got some 3 days before, but it all rained away little christmas eve :S It is to warm to have fire in the fireplaceand there is just nothing reminding me about winter outside... 

I have been dow with a bad back all christmas, lying on the sofa feeling sorry for myself, now finally these two last days I have been able to sit again, so now it was time to craft again. I did get a lot of crafting goodies from santa this year :)

This tag is for Simon Says Stamp and Show  (make a TH inspired tag) and for Grungy Monday (tissue tape og paper).

My inspiration was the last tag of 2009
I stamped the bg with TH Christmas carol and flourish. Under the roses I have made a section with snowflake tissuetape. Does not show very good in the picture, but its there - you just have to belive me :)
The roses is from Kort og Godt. I sprayed them with Distress reinkers for color and some glimmermist for sprakle. Then I painted the egdes with white acrylic paint and then added some diamond stickles on top of that. The leaf was dabbed with snow cap paint dabber.

I added all the bling by hand and then cut out the letters using TH upon a time alphabet die. Then the letters were covered with stickles. 

Now can we please have some snow?

I also have to show you my husbands creations. He was so sweet and made his own tags for christmas.
He did a good job I think, now I am afraid that I might have to fight him for the craftingstuff......

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Oh Gunn these are gorgeous!! Yours is the best, so question of that, but Marcus is showing talent already - you will be fighting him for the supplies very soon, I can see.
Blessings, and all the best for you and yours in 2012.
