The Pixie Cottage Challenge #97

It's time for another challenge at The Pixie Cottage and this week we want you to Make A Set. This can be a set of Christmas cards or tags or a Christmas card and matching box. We also have a fab sketch so you can do either or combine the two.

This week I chose to make a set of tags........

I have used this cute Pixie Cottage rubber stamp called "Hanging Around Mouse" which you can buy from Michelle's Scrapbooking and More. You will find it here. I have used Kraft card and coloured the image with Derwent pencils which was a first for me and I am quite pleased with the end result  :0) 

I just love this cute little mouse!!  I added some glitter to the fur on the stocking and stamped a sentiment on the side of the tag, threaded ribbon through the hole and there you have it, a simple tag. Repeat three times more and voila - a set of tags !!! Oh and I also gave his little nose the glossy accent treatment but it's not showing up in the picture  :0(  I really enjoyed making these on Kraft card and will definitely be using it again.

I hope you will take a look at the rest of the DT's gorgeous creations and join us for this great challenge. I look forward to seeing what you create and remember, the winner gets to choose two stamps from the Pixie Cottage Collection.

So, that's all from me for today - thank you so much for looking.
