In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia,
On the trail of the lonesome pine.....
I have been singing this all morning since seeing what Hels challenge over at the Sunday Stamper is this week. I think it's one of those songs that once you start thinking about it it just sticks in your head, well at least , it does in mine. Oh no! Now I've got Ruby, Ruby, Ruby whizzing round in there as well. I'm blaming it on the fact I've just finished a week of night shifts.
Anyway enough waffle. Here's my tag.
I succumbed to temptation last week and bought the new seasonal DI's, they are truly gorgeous colours.
My tag is inked with Iced Spruce and I've then run the tag through my Big Shot with Tim's pine trees embossing folder. Then as carefully as I could I dabbed the raised bits with Evergreen Bough and Walnut Stain. Then the pine needles and cone are stamped using the same colours.
The fence is painted with Picket Fence crackle paint, and some snowy Flowersoft. The rosette is made from tissue tape, and finished off with a couple of sparkly pins and one I made by cutting out a tiny 25 and gluing it into the memo pin with some Glossy Accents.
The tag is finished off with some ribbon and what is actually a Christmas cake decoration.
Now I've mentioned the Christmas word, I really should make a start on some cards, but actually I just think I might watch the old Doris Day film that's on TV this afternoon, and then catch up with the first episode of the new series of The Mentalist. My conscience is clear as the garden is neat and tidy (ish), and I've been out for a longish walk this morning.
