ABC Challenge Y - Yellow 365 Cards Days 152 & 153

ABC's challenge has reached the letter Y and this time round it's for the colour yellow. 365 Cards challenge today is entitled 'Tag, you're it' and entails using a tag for journaling. I have used a stamp from Unity KOM for July, and added one the the same month's sentiments. I used my DIY Lego Stampamajig once more in order to place the sentiment in the correct position on the tag.
For the background I have have used a new Versamark Dazzle inkpad in Frost to add the clouds. It's just an experiment really, I'll have to find out how else I can use this inkpad. It does have a lovely sheen, and I'm sure has lots of possibilities!

For Day 153 the challenge was to make a fun flap.
Well this is not so much of a fun flap as a fun slide!
We went to a Ruby Wedding celebration last weekend, which took the form a cruise up and down the river at Oxford. We had a wonderful time and this card is by way of saying thank you to our hosts.... hence the choice of colour.
The die is from Quickutz and the arrow is a stamp from Unity KOM for July. The embossing and squares are Nesties. The word 'thanks' is from a Cuttlebug die.
