All Good Things

Well we've made it. Our last challenge of the year for Crafting With Dragonflies and we're asking you to make a tag or tags. Perfect time of year don't you think? It's also my last challenge as a Dragonfly. I will miss the girls very much as we are all friends but I have got to spend some time on my scrapbooking. Course this time of year I'm busy planning a couple of birthday parties. One for my Abby and one for Jesus very shortly afterwards. Our sponsors this fortnight are QKR Stampede and Sassy Studio Designs.
I made a bottle tag using a Silhouette cut file cut from double sided cardstock. I printed my sentiment and image out on white cardstock and colored her using my Prismacolor pencils. I had to add some tights because most of Lindsay's Sassy girls wouldn't last 2 minutes in a Canadian Winter, lol, this one is called Santa Pin-Up. Some DecoArt Snow Writer was added to her fur for texture and dimension. I thought the sentiment worked well considering both the wine and the image ;)
I don't often talk about our weather because I know there are so many Canadian stereotypes out there that we all live in igloos and such but last Friday morning our school buses didn't run because of extreme windchill temperatures of below -40 Celsius. We were even -45 one morning with the wind chill. And do you know people were still out Christmas shopping that Saturday in droves? I guess the urge to cross some items off the list this busy time of year beat out the urge to hibernate. And we're in another extreme wind chill warning for tonight and tomorrow morning. Sure hope the girls can go to school, we get cabin fever pretty easily these days stuck at home and inside. Although I always make sure to save a few 'snow day' projects for just such occasions. Take care all and stay warm (if you're in this part of the World)!

What a fabulous tag Barb. I am trying tho think how I can make several before the season gets going......will I have time ....probably not! I cannot believe those temperatures! OMG! Hope the cabin fever does not strike too often or you will be using up that bottle before it gets given! Have a great Christmas and all best for 2014.
