Happy New Year!!

So another Year begins - anyone broken their resolution yet?

What better way to start the New Year than with a Tag You're It challenge? New year - New stash! This week we want you to create a tag using some stash that you got for Christmas or if Santa didn't bring you anything (naughty Santa!) , then you could use some of your most recent purchases.

I was very lucky to be given these gorgeous Prima leaves and I have included my most recent purchase of BG urban prairie papers so I have used both for my tag. I used up lots of little gems for the swirls.

Unfortunately it is so dark here at the moment my photos are not clear as I have to use the flash everytime.
Well it's back to normal here, the tree and decorations are down and I have to go back to work this afternoon (Boo!) and although I do love Christmas crafting I am so glad to be making things in lovely bright colours again.

I am on day 2 of the stash ban and I am doing quite well, no withdrawal symptoms yet, but given time I know I will get mood swings etc LOL! if only all the craft websites would stop their sales and discounts I would be fine!

pp - Basic Grey Urban Prairie ( if you haven't got these - trust me you need 'em!)
leaves - prima
flowers, gems and ribbon from stash
button from Poppicrafts.

Please join in with the tag challenge this week we love looking at all your beautiful creations, and I am very nosey and want to see what you all got for Christmas!
