25 Days of Christmas Tags ~ Day 22

So sorry for the totally UNCLEAR picture...I am just getting this in before we head out to the airport for our flight to Hawaii!!
Ellen Hutson is sponsoring the day over at Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags
and I was inspired by Laurel Beards heart shaped tags!
I used ME Reindeer Games and a sentiment from PTI Tinsel and Tags.
Have a great week everyone and a very Blessed Thanksgiving to ALL!

See you in a week!
Heart Hugs!

Merry Monday # 181 Blue & White with Texture

Our sweet creator and owner of this challenge has given us an awesome picture to use for our inspiration this time!
You might ask where my texture is, and I did use watercolor paper...Tim Holtz to be exact and it does have texture to the paper, then I also embossed the clusters of snowflakes with WOW! Bright white embossing powder!
stamps:  PTI Warmest Wishes
watercolor for background
copics for the polar bear sweater
Lil' Inkers stitched rectangle die 
Thanks for joining us in this challenge.  I look forward to seeing what you create in BLUE, WHITE AND WITH TEXTURE!!
Have a very happy Thanksgiving!

25 Days of Christmas Tags Day 21

Day 21, I can't hardly believe it...seems like just yesterday I made my first tag...
The 25 Days of Christmas Tags will continue until the 26th...
I chose Kim Bell's tag to copy!  My snowflake is from Casual Fridays, which I embossed with white EP, then used distress ink and finally a splattering of Gesso watered down.
Sadly, this may be my last tag unless I have some time to go back and look at other inspirations...I leave tomorrow morning for Hawaii!!  Sad me, I know!  the whole family is going so we are happy to spend the time with all the daughters, SIL's and the grandchildren of course!

25 Days of Christmas Tags ~ Day 20

Day 20 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Challenge is sponsored by Some Odd Girl...she has not only 'girls' but animals too...she colored a darling puppy.  I do not have any of her stamps, but I did decide to color up an MFT stamp and ink of the background like Kimberly did, couldn't resist a bit of snowflakes in the background, since she caught one!  *wink

25 Days of ChristmasTags ~ Day 19

Well, surprise ME, I looked at the tags and was drawn to one in particular and so I went about pulling papers and dies to make it work.  Now as I am about to post it I had to go back and see who made it...of course, Kay Miller!!  I love everything she makes!!

25 Days of Christmas Tags ~ Day 18

Pretty Pink Posh was the sponsor today over at Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, lots of awesome tags!

I adored Julia's tag so I tried to replicate it...sponged on some Distress inks on the bottom, then used an MFT brick stencil with some ripe persimmon ink.  The stockings are from a  Paper Smooches set called Merry Motifs (the sentiment also).

Seize the Birthday ~ Vellum or Acetate

Ho Ho, get your party on people!!
I couldn't resist doing another shaker card, especially since I purchased the "Fuse" tool which makes it so easy to seal up all those sprinkles to shake!
The cute little monkey is from PTI "Tremendous Treats", I guess his arm is hiding behind all the string (*wink!)

Thanks for joining us at Seize the Birthday!  We always love visiting you and seeing your creations!  You can always make ANY KIND OF CARD AS LONG AS IT IS BIRTHDAY!
