25 Days of Christmas Tags Guest Spot!


Hi everyone! I am so lucky to have been asked by my friend Tracey McNeeley for the second year in a row to participate in her 25 Days of Christmas Tags! This year she had so many people join in that the 12 Kits Group is all chipping in on one day. So you will get to see tags from all of my 12 Kits Friends on their blogs today, too! Make sure to go to Tracey's blog here to see her tag along with the rest of the group's tags. So for mine I just HAD to use this Alpine Carolers set that I got from Mama Elephant. The minute I saw it I was in love with it :) And of course I made 3 of them to look like my little family. Too bad their weren't dogs and a cat, too...then I could have made the whole gang!

I tried some new techniques on this tag. I used a stencil for the snow and some distress inks, then I used a wink of stella glitter pen to add some sparkle to the snow. The people were colored with Copics, and the tag itself was altered from the PTI wine tag! I cut off the top part that usually hangs over the wine bottle, but then I needed some type of tag top, so I used the circle that comes out of the die (from the part where the die goes over the bottle) glued it on the back, punched a hole, and wah-lah! The card stock and ribbons are from Stampin' Up and the twine from the twinery.

Now did you know that Tracey is offering up some amazing prizes?! Check out the companies that the prizes are from:

• Reverse Confetti
• Clearly Besotted
• CAS-ual Fridays
• Neat and Tangled
• Paper Smooches

Would you like to win one? Well guess what? One of the commenters from my blog will be put in to the drawing that takes place on Nov. 28th. So make sure to comment for your chance to win one of those fabulous prizes! Thanks for stopping by :)
