Jingle all the Way

Good morning all.

Gosh it didn't half rain here at teatime yesterday...just as they'd forecast, the rest of the day wasn't too bad. Managed a visit to the craft room too so not a bad day all told.

I enjoyed making this tag.

On Tuesday I'd smooshed a pile of tags with distress paint and left them to dry overnight, this was one of them. I used distress inks in matching colours to the paints to add more colour around the edges.  Houses are from a Clearly Besotted Die; sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers; all other stamps and dies are from Lawn Fawn; ribbon from my stash.

Challenges entered:
ABC Christmas - W for wild thing
CHNC Extra - anything Christmas
The Sisterhood of Crafters - it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Crafty Addicts - use a die cut
One Crazy Stamper - Christmas/winter
Where the HeART is - anything goes/winter blues
Craft Stamper - take it make it November
