Tag card 6" x 3" with Christine

Welcome to our latest fortnightly challenge over at CD Sunday, this challenge has been brought to you by team mate Christine and it's Tag Card 6" x 3". 
You can have so much fun with tags,  the possibilities are endless and styles unlimited .
I love to use tags and have made quite a few just as decorations hanging in my craft space and they do make great book marks to give to friends, also a grate way of using up scrap card.
For my Tag card i have used a 6" x 6" white card scored and folded in half and trimmed the top corners to get the shape i wanted. For my CD element i have used  MCS Floriography CD2 for the back paper, the images are from graphic 45 Ladies Diary , the fence has been cut out on the cameo , and the sentiment is a stamp ,finished of with gold ribbon. I enjoyed making this tag and all the fussy cutting for the embellishments
So do join us again with this lovely challenge and we shall be visiting you too.
This is one of the tags i made for Christmas decorations

Animal antics with Jenny

Our theme this time has been chosen by Jenny and it's Animal Antics .
Before we get on to that i will start by thanking Carrol for our last challenge Winter walks, we did have a good response this even though it was over the festive season and a lot of people where still off work and may still had visitors staying.
This time it's Animal Antics and that does give you a very large scope for images, i have used one i found on the net and thought it quite amusing , the CD i used is one from a set of 5  from Serif all to do with Steam punk.
 I have chosen this back paper and printed it of, I used a 6x 6 craft card and add a speech balloon with the sentiment and add a few card candy
This is nice quick and easy card with a little humor and is a great man card.
I hope you will be able to join again this time around.

Countdown to Christmas
