Delving into Digis...


Happy Boxing Day! I hope y'all had a fabby Christmas day too! Chris and I managed to travel to our families thanks to the bright sun melting some ice and snow - though there's still a fair bit around so we celebrated a very preddy Christmas day. I over indulged along with my dad; we always do as we can't bear the thought of food being wasted LOL!

So today, apart from it being Boxing Day and my Mum's Birthday (another card to share there later!), I'm sharing the gift tags I made for my nieces and nephews' presents. I think I was having a crazy spell with this idea - the presents looked lovely with the tags but why oh why did I add making 7 tags to the never ending list of things to be done?!

Now when I get around to uploading some more cards I created for Christmas you'll totally realise that I'm on a colouring obsession at the mo! (I think it's because I find it so relaxing amongst all the chaos) So I wanted something fun, cute and fun to colour for the gift tags and found the perfect solution over at All That Scraps! I purchased some Digi I'm not a complete convert to 'em because nothing beats geting inky, but they're fab when you're in a real rush and have no time to wait for rubber to arrive on your doorstep!

So without further ado let's crack on with all seven tags shall we?



...Cora...actually I tend to call her Cora Lilly-Belle but there was no way that was fitting on this tag LOL!...




...and last, but by no means least, Charlie who is celebrating his first Christmas!

All the images were printed on PTI Stampers' Select White Cardstock, coloured with Promarkers and mounted onto various PTI cardstock using my Nesties. The lettering comes from a book of alphabet transfers that I accidentally found whilst looking for something else - don't ya love it when that happens?!

And while I'm uploading, I've just realised I can enter this for the current challenge over at A Passion for Promarkers - what a bonus!

Right, I'm off to celebrate my Mum's birthday and then tonight I'm off for a catch up with some friends so it could well be a late one ;D

Catch ya later!

Aimes these are gorgeous, I love, love, love them all!

Hope you've enjoyed your xmas. You must be mad, adding extra work, but it was worth it! (I only just managed to stop myself doing Tilda tags, so I'm teetering on the brink of madness, too. LOL)
I love 'Thomas' with his antlers and candy-cane jumper. So cute!
