Tiddly Inks challenge 72- Anything Goes continued!

Morning Peeps.

Its Tiddly Tuesday time again and us Tiddly Inkers are in full flow with our anything goes challenge month over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.

I went for a whimsical christmas tag for my creation this week. I printed out my snowman and sentiment 
( ..the sentiment comes with the snowman and I love it!) Then I ran my tag through my cuttlebug with a TH embossing folder and rubbed on some faded jeans distress ink.
I ripped up some of my glittery speckled vellum and added one layer to my tag, then my little snowman and then another ripped vellum layer over the bottom of him.
Next job was a good old bit of hand stitching with some blue metallic thread all round the edges. I also stitched the sentiment on!!

I added a blue eyelet to the tag hole and then popped some thread through it, then stuck on some snowflakes here and there!

So get your tiddly thang on and come and join in the tiddly inking fun using any tiddly inks or one of christy's stamping bella's.
***** EDITED IN TO SAY*****
Thank you so very much for all your lovely messages about our beautiful dog,Zac.
Last night we each lit a candle and wrote some little messages for Zac to help little Mo understand it all.
I think it helped a great deal but waking up to a house without Zac in has been extremely hard this morning.
Love you Zaccy xxxxxx

  7. Gorgeous tag Lou. Just adore the velum idea, have to dig through my stash now. It's a stunning effect and the stitching is fab!

    Sorry about your dog. Give Mo a huge hug. It's hard on the wee one's, but it is such an incredible lesson for them. My DD had so much empathy for her Nana when Nana's mother passed last month. I don't think she would have understood so well if not for losing our family cat a year ago. Sending you cyber hugs!!!
