The Second

I promise I am not doing my December Daily via my blog! 

This morning there was a "pep" in the boys steps on the way into school.  
Why?  Because I had just shared with them that tonight is the night that the The Late Late Toy Show is on tv. 

This year's theme / set design for the show is Toy Story and the presenter is going to dress up as Woody!  The Late Late Toy Show is an institution here in Ireland and guests tonight include Olly Murs and Jedward.
Spot the presenter?  Here they are in rehearsals.

Now ... onto a creation.

  Have you seen the Christmas tag challenge on Waltzingmouse Stamps?  Well, I knew I had to play along.  I made a 3D hanging tag that can then be used on a tree!
This started out life as a Cheerios box which I ran through my Big Shot with last year's Vintage Ornament dies by Spellbinders.  I found that Cheerios / Nestle do the whitest cardboard in their cereal boxes.
Supplies:  Vintage Ornaments - Waltzingmouse Stamps, Seasons of Love - WMS, 
Spellbinders - Vintage Ornament dies, oval and heart dies, Memento Ink - 
Bamboo Leaves, White gel pen, Tea Dye distress ink and blending tool, 
gingham ribbon - Gisela Graham, mini bells - Paperchase, 
adhesive and glossy accents.

I cut out first, then stamped then cut out the ovals, then distressed, glued and hey presto a tag for my hubby's gift this year.  Below is a shot of the production line for distressing!
Thanks for peeking.  Hope you have a great weekend.
