Completed My second scarf for christmas 2010

Feeling all pleased with myself  I have completed my second scarf for christmas next year.
While watching  Tim Holtz on QVC in germany the other night I felt inspired to make a tag, so was crafting while he was on, I inked and stamped the tag, Then I added a leaf, button, flower and gem I then though I might be able to make a nice card out of the tag

 So I matted and layer up my card and added an embellisment to the 
bottomright corner, however I was not pleased with how it looked 
at this point , so I thought maybe if I stamp the fern from the tag
round the edges of the card if might look more "done"

So I gave it a go and decided that was much better ...

Then I mounted the tag on the card I am quite pleased with
the results I think it has "rainforest feel" to it

I wonder what other people do with their tags when they have made them ? 

Whilst making the mens cards I made recently I stamped an image I was less that pleased with however it was too good to throw away so I wondered if I could rescue it, so I gave it a go and made this card .

Went to Hobbycraft today to get some cards and envelopes I got two pack both the same size and amount 10 in each pack 6" x 6" when I got to the till the natural coloured ones were £2.99 and the white ones were £7.99, so you guessed it I left the white ones at the till :(  a few other bits fell into my trolley without me noticing lol it would be rude of me not to take them home. Also I spotted some yummy bits in accessorise I had to have
