Wedding Gift Tag

 This month's image from The Outlawz, is from Kathy Asper, and we received two images, Little Viking Lady and Little Viking Man.

I thought I would put them close together and create a wedding gift tag with a bit of humour.  Love the sentiment, which I found on the net.

Coloured with copic pens and glitter on speckled paper, which I have added gold ink to the edges.

The little verse reads:
When the roaring fires of your love
have burned down to embers
may you find you have married
your best friend

Snowman Tag maybe

 Hi everyone, this month's image for The Outlawz , Progressive Freebie is Challenge is Mr Squiggles drawn by Cara.

I decided to practice with my pencils and coloured the snowman with Prismacolour pencils. Firstly to show my husband what ombre was in colouring as our daughter had her nails done last week in blue ombre, but as her father has a form of colour blindness, the subtle changes were not apparent to him, so I made them more prominent.

Couldn't resist adding colour to the yellow nose and rosy cheeks though.  Marker snow and some glitter completed the image.   

Rummaging through a box for a label, I came across a pad of labels I bought a long time ago and I am sorry I can't remember where as I would love to have more of these labels.

At this stage I have made a tag, but maybe I might turn him into a card.  The square at the top with the hole, is perforated and can be removed, leaving the top the same shape as the bottom.

Happy New Year.  Let's hope 2024 sees as creating more.

The optional theme to start the new year is to make a Gatefold Card.

I haven't made one for years, but think there could be more coming this year, I had great fun using patterned papers from Uniquely Creative and diecuts from 49 and Market.

The Happy Birthday was made with a Stampin Up die, I used 4 layers of white and one layer on patterned paper.
