Make It Monday #234

So, today I have a tag to share.
I made it to accompany the butter crunch that we'll be giving to
our taekwondo instructor tonight.
Normally, I'd give it to him closer to Christmas,
but this is the last class we'll be attending in December.
Our month is so full!
We have Jonah's band/choir concert tomorrow evening, Sage's voice recital on Monday,
Sage's Grade 5/6 concert/play on Wednesday and
on Thursday, we got tickets to see the new Star Wars movie.
All fun things, for sure, but busy...

Anyway, so for my tag, I was inspired by this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink:
Embellishing with Felt to add some felt to my tag.

Our taekwondo instructor hunts, so I thought he might appreciate a felt deer on his tag. ;)


I diecut my tag using my Journaling Card Tag and diecut the deer
(a Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper die) from some dark chocolate felt.



I diecut the banner, holly and berries from Tinsel & Tags and stamped
them with their coordinating stamps.

Thanks for looking!

Not only will your TKD instructor love the buttercrunch, he'll definitely like the tag that accompanies it! Brilliant idea to use the felt. Love this!! Lucky you -- Star Wars.... Wish I were going too! Enjoy your busy season! Bev

Beautiful tag, Leigh! I love the deer die cut from felt! And the bright banner and holly looks so festive and fun. Everything really pops against the crisp white base. Awesome!
Sounds like you have a very busy, but happy, month ahead! Lots of great memories in the making!

Loving this tag, Leigh. Clean and crisp, yet merry, of course :) I shouldn't visit your blog because I always seem to leave needing something that you used (i.e., the stag).

Leigh, I love that deer head die! Know so many hunters in the family that it would work for. Thanks for the inspiration! Beautiful! Or should I say, 'handsome'!

Kathy Mc said...

Perfect masculine tag, Leigh, even for non-hunters!
