Make the Day Special October Challenge

I've got to admit to having purchased quite a lot of new Christmas stamps this year, more than I'm sure I'll need, but they're all pretty cute. My favourite at the moment (as well as the rest of the crafting world!) are these Mama Elephant Reindeer. The Make the Day Special October challenge is "Anything But a Card" and when I first saw the stamps, I thought the little city skyline would be perfect for some little gift tags, so that's what I've made!

I've stamped these onto die-cut circles of watercolour paper, and coloured the reindeer with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens, and the backgrounds are Distress Ink watercoloured (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire). Finished off with some bakers twine.

I have been making lots of cards recently, but life seems to get in the way of blogging about them. But they are all on my Instagram :)
