Bah! Humbug! Charms Challenge and A Blog Award

I was determined to not wait until the last minute this week for Bah!Humbug! so I took a break from my DT stuff to create this little tag. The challenge this week is Charms and after looking through my stash I came upon this little snowflake I'd done with Shrink Plastic. It was cut on my Cricut using the Very Merry Tags cartridge. The tag itself was cut from Plantin Schoolbook on both regular and shadow at 4". The cute little Stampotique stamp is "I'm Cold" by Jill Penney. See, not all Stampotique stamps are creepy. (And can you imagine that Jill is married to Daniel Torrente of the creepy stamps? go figure) The DP's are from S.E.I.'s Wintersong pack including the paper pieced jacket. The rest of her is colored with Copics. The rub on is Melissa Frances.

A little popping, some ribbon and wired stuff that looks to me like snow balls and that's it.

Now before I get on to the blog award, I have to apologize to the 25 or so people who have given me awards since Feb. of this year and I've never posted. I truly do appreciate them, but when they started coming fast and furiously and I started to get behind the whole process got so totally overwhelming, checking back to previous posts to find what award and who they came from, etc. etc. , so I just gave up. So SOOOO sorry my friends. I will try to do better but...

However, I did receive the Cherry on Top award from Lisa, Karen, Oh Snap and Sandra (critterbugg365) and I thank you ladies sooo much. Please visit these lovely ladies by clicking on their names and leave them some love. You know the drill for these awards so I won't go over that, but I do need to post

3 things I love about myself

1. I love that I don't feel or act my age

2. I love that I've found a hobby I truly enjoy and look forward to every day

3. I love that I still believe in Santa Claus, Fairy Tales, Love at First Sight and Happily Ever After (not necessarily in that order)

And the picture I love

Goliath, relaxing on Daddy's lap,

not a care in the world.

Last but not least, I'm supposed to pass this award on to 5 bloggers and you know that's impossible for me to choose but I do want to recognize one sweet and talented friend who is relatively new to the blogging world (since June). I always enjoy her encouraging comments and want the rest of the crafty world to find her blog and appreciate her creativity like I do so

LISA, this one's for you!

  11. Donna you are WoNdErFuL!! The last few days have been rough and your post is the *nicest, best, most gracious* thing that has happened to me all week...month, actually!! It is an amazing feeling to have someone you admire give you a shout out! You are a classy, lovely lady, Ms. Mundinger - thank you again for your support.

    Goliath is such a handsome boy! Look at him all stretched out and content - he is happy, isn't he!? I can almost hear him purring ;) I have a cat, a much adored cat at that, and there is nothing I like better than a cup of coffee and my Lily curled up purring softly on my lap!

    Your tag is adorable I love the "snow"! You are the only one I know who can take a Stampotique stamp and reduce the creepy factor ...or amp it up depending on the challenge. :D

    Now, I'm off to catch up on your other creations for this week!

  12. Donna, you are such a bright and cheerful and oh so so talented lady, and you always sparkle, and spread inspiration and encouragement. I loved your sweet tag, and I adored the pix of Goliath.

  13. Somewhere hidden deep is some shrinky dink, I wonder if I can find it before Christmas? This the cutesy tag. Hugs

  14. Adorable tag....adorable kitty.....and I'm glad you don't look or act your age, either!

  15. Hi Donna, your tag is super and well done for making your own charm. Thank you, as always, for sharing with us at bah! Humbug!

  19. Just got back from holiday so this is the first chance I've had to pop and see your card. Wow this is a super cute tag. Love it.
    Glad to hear you are a 'believer' - life would be much fun if we didn't know for a fact that all those things exist especially 'love at first sight'.
