Tagged sentiment

Hello and good morning! What great day it is! If plans hasn't change I will doggy sit my favourit doggy from tonight until Sunday. I can't wait! I love that Staffordshire bullterrier to death. He is the first dog ever who "liked" me before anyone else in my little family. My partner Mats has some kind of magic touch with these creatures and connects with them right away. I never do, except with this sweet heart. I am not sure that I will return him on Sunday...hehehe

The motive I have used for this card comes from Lili of the Valley and is called Festive Lantern. A nice classy looking image that I adore. Unfortunatly I don't have that many young men in my life who I can send cards like this too. "Sad eye" here... Oh well, I am happy to have those I have aint I? Ok, I feel my sleeping pills kicking in now, I don't take responsibility for what I write after this. LoL


I have used my favourite skech for this card. I comes from Papertake weekly and has number 85 on it I think. I love it, but when I first saw it I thought it was hard to use but at the moment am I using it for two or three cards per month I think. But you can always give it a little make over to suit you better. But I like it this way. Looks stable. Once again I have been lurking around in my favourit pad of the year Back to basics Christmas with Dove Craft. Those pads really keeps me going. As almost all the time have I been using my Letraset Markers for this colouring as. well. I have kept it simple as I don't want to spend a fortune on stamps when I can use them for craft material instead. LoL

Anyway the theme over at AUD sentiment that this card is made for has the theme of: "place your sentiment on a tag", I have used two as I am not tag person, but this worked out fine I think. It says Merry Christmas in Swedish. I used a Tim Holtz die do make the tags and then some letter stickers to "print out" the words. Couldn't help myself, so I added a little snowflake to the mix as well. :) Some brown and white bakers twine, a few cream pearls that I have gotten from Annelie is also used, and of course some stickles. You don't have a Christmas card if you don't have some sparkel on it, do you?
