Tag Tuesday " Snow, Sports and Games "

It seems that Tag Tuesday may just become an addiction! Another one ! I had such fun not only taking part but seeing all of the beautiful entries , such stunning work. If you haven't been by  then I urge you to pop over , you will be amazed and inspired. I was really impressed I can tell you but that's more than can be said for my dogletts Rosy and Bailey who where banned from crafting den due to copious amounts of glitter and glue attaching themselves to every object in the room. When they where finally admitted entry they still managed to get all blinged up even after I had hoovered ! If you have ever seen a porky French Bulldog and a tiny weeny pinscher sporting glittery fur and depositing it all over the house then you can well understand why they where locked out in the first place !

The theme this week is " Snow, Sports and Games and  for my tag  I decided to go in the opposite direction and steer clear of the sparkly stuff, that and the fact that the other ladies do it so much better !




This is quite a large tag and as you can see my icicles are defying nature and growing out towards the side , I am using my " artistic license  " here, I  did try them in more natural positions but well, they just looked too" normal " I used some foam dots between the layers to give the illusion of dimension. The whole tag was created solely with the aid of my Silhouette machine not a stamp or even a jot of glitter in sight !  The sentiment such as it is  and for those of you like myself suffer from bloggers blindness is a compilation of  words relating to the theme, snow, ice, skating , sledding, you get my drift  ( pun intended ) . Anyways hope you like it !

Am also linking this to Paper Creations Ink who are asking us to use die cuts/punches on our work 

Just one more thing the greenery is not part of the tag ...... what you had guessed that already, of course , silly me !


Right am off to visit you all and ooh and ahh at your wonderful creations

Until next time..........

Marie

  1. Your tag is brilliant, Marie. And I think those icicles look just perfect where they are. I love how you layered them! Fabulous Silhouette work!! Is your background cut, or is it printed? If it's cut Sillie has done a fantastic job, and so have you! x

  5. Hello Marie
    Did you handcut those icicles? A fabulous edging for the tag. A very clever tag you created but no surprises there.
    Any chance of a photo of the blinged up doggies?

  25. Very 'on the edge' or 'over the top' or whatever the latest term is for leading edge ... love it! I'm sure your dogletts are broken hearted to be locked out of your presence ... give them a hug for me if you don't have your little black dress on! :o) As always, thanks for sharing .. always enjoy. take care. xoDonna

  45. I love your tag Marie, ESPECIALLY the gravity-defying icicles! It's art after all, doesn't necessarily have to resemble real life (just be thankful icicles don't really grow like that!):) Thanks for your lovely comment on one of my blog posts, I really enjoy have a look around on your blog and perhaps find a little inspiration for my own creations :) Have a great day!
