A spoon full of sugar & Tag You're It




I'm feeling really pleased with myself today - I went for a 10.5 mile run, which is the furthest I've done since my last half marathon in May. Hopefully I'll be able to get back to my normal running routine soon - I've not been training as much lately, and I really miss it!

I've also made a couple of challenge entries tonight - one for the A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge - I used a sugar nellie holding a rabbit to fulfil the animal magic theme (it's the only stamp I have that fits the bill!). I used some paper from a magazine freebie, and my new swirly sizzix bigz die, oh and a couple of punched flowers and sparkly jems.

The other is a tag for Tag You're It, the challenge was to make a tag using black lime and teal. This is my first entry for this challenge - I covered a tag from a pair of jeans with black paper, cut out a smaller tag in white suede which I then stamped in teal with the greeting, and added some lime flowers in the corner.

Good grief 10.5 miles?? I think I would have collapsed at the end of the road!! Can't believe you then made these!! Lol!! Great tag and yes, to be effective doesn't necessarily mean extravagant, some of my most favourite designs are clean and "simple"! Thanks so much for finding us and taking part :)
