ATCAS {TAG} & 500th Post Celebrations

Hi everyone, I hope I have found you well today!

I have a couple of things to share with you today. First, the challenge over at ATCAS has been going for nearly a week now but I have only just been able to post my DT project.

Second, this is my 500th Post! That has to be a reason to celebrate and give away a prize!

Let me show you what I have come up with for ATCAS and then we will come back to how you can win something ;)

Here is the code word that was chosen by the super talented Vicki

I created a card and tag combination -

I inked up a Hero Arts set that I have never used before. Hmm, I think it is called Reindeers. It has these cute trees which I have embossed with blue powder. The sentiment is from STAMPlorations and is called Sentiment Builders: Christmas & New Year

I was completely inspired by Loll's tag using Drywall tape (we call it plasterboard here) that I popped into the hardware store and bought some! Thanks Loll!

Here is my matching tag.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Less Is More - Non Traditional Colour Christmas Card
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes with optional Holiday Thanks

I would like to enter my tag into the following challenges -

Loll's Mixed Media Christmas Tag Challenge (my entry is just for fun)
Aud Sentiments - put your sentiment on a tag
Red rubber Inspirationals - Tag You're it


Now, onto the prize for joining in the celebrations for my 500th post.

Some of you may be aware that I am now creating personal watermarks and signatures. To win both a personal watermark for your projects and signature for your blog, just display my business card on your blog and comment below to let me know you have done it! Easy!

This prize is worth $40 US.
