Hello.  Welcome.  We've been invited out to dinner this evening, and I should be finishing up the trifle, but..............  I'm sure she'll understand ROFL.  I've been working on a cute little tag.  I know!!  Tagging it again!  Not intentional.  The elements just seemed to lend themselves to this idea.  

I cut my tag from kraft card using Sizzix Tags #2 and embossed with Cheery Lynn Diamonds and Starburst embossing plate.  Then I highlighted the embossing with VersaMagic Aegean Blue and Night Sky. 

I cut Cheery Lynn Snowflake 2 and a load of circles from blue glitter card.  I stamped Unity Stamp Co. Tinsel in a Tangle penguin and sentiment on blue paper and also used the same paper to back the snowflake.  I layered the sentiment on some more of the glitter card and arranged it all on the tag.  The non-glitter circles are the backside of the glitter card and I added plenty Night Sky ink.  Some blue wool from the pretty wool box and a blue star brad.  I really wanted a bit of blue tinsel and a blue snowflake brad, but none were apparent in the stash.  They will probably pop up tomorrow ROFL.   I also added some Clear Wink of Stella to the penguin's tinsel.
