Colour Q #266 - 25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hello folks!

We've got something a little bit different over at Colour Q this week and there's a chance to win a prize just for making a comment here!  The uber-talented Tracey McNeely of In My Creative Opinion  has asked us to use this week's colours to take part in her annual '25 Days of Christmas Tags' event.  You can see all the details here but let me tell you this lady has been VERY busy behind the scenes and has organised a whole heap of fabulous prizes from Reverse Confetti,  Clearly Besotted, CAS-ual Fridays, Neat and Tangled and Paper Smooches.

So, without further ado here are this week's colours:

It's been a bit quiet on my blog in recent weeks - I've now gone back to work after being a stay at home Mum for the last 8 years and I'm doing more hours than expected.  So you'll have to forgive me, I'm kind of struggling to get into a crafty zone at the moment!  I used a heap of strips from some Imaginisce patterned papers for this one and a couple of stamps from Waltzingmouse. The flower is one of Paper Smooches stand alone dies which I love - just the right size for a tag!

So,  like I said there's the chance to win for making a comment! Make a comment at the end of this post and you have the opportunity to go into a draw to win a prize from Tracey.  She'll be making the prize draw on November 28th! Don't forget to check out her blog for more ways to win and good luck!

Thanks for stopping by,
