Try it on Tuesday - One for the boys

Go on then guess who got a new die last week at the Stamp Man??? Michelle and I spotted them and just had to have them - isnt he fab? So over on TioT the theme is One for the boys - perfect opportunity to use the die and phew Michelle didnt use hers LOL!
Now this was done super quick after my Christmas card ladies left last night - last minute again so was made with supplies close at hand - lush stampin up papers left over from the scrapbook day on Saturday and some black card. not one bit of stamping but some black soot distress ink for the edges.

these words jumped out from the text papers making me feel a little guilty that I had so little time for the tag so nothing for it but to add them in!

I paper pieced the umberella and added some stickles to it. I wanted to do the hat too but could not get it to look in proportion to his face so I left it. The photo corners are a stampin up punch - 2 sizes on the punch - love it!

Now if you play along with TioT this week there are a few goodies to win and my team mates have made some amazing tags so its worth stopping by and checking it out on the Try it on Tuesday blog.

Have a great day x
