25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hello Everyone!

I had SO much fun making these teeny tiny tags today, to play along with the 25 Days of Christmas Tags! You can get all the details and link up your holiday tags over at Tracey McNeeley’s Blog right here: https://inmycreativeopinion.blogspot.com/2017/11/the-25-days-of-christmas-tags-main-post.html

Today’s tag was inspired by Christy, from Lawn Fawn, on Day 12. Christy created four tiny snowman tags, and they quite a cute quartet!

My little group of snow people are ready for colder weather, all dressed to face the elements! Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow! Together we’ll create a blizzard!

25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hello Everybody!

Today I am sharing a very special tag I created for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags, sponsored by Tracey McNeeley, from In My Creative Opinion. You can get all the details and link up your holiday tags over on Tracey’s blog right here:  https://inmycreativeopinion.blogspot.com/2017/11/the-25-days-of-christmas-tags-main-post.html

This beautiful tag was created by Michele Ferguson, from Lil’inker Designs, on Day 6, and is my inspiration for today’s tag! I loved the dark circle center, the gold peace in the center, and the holiday berries and leaves. I brought those same elements into my tag too!

I really like how this tag turned out, and might make a few more for my holiday boxes and gifts! I also really like the inspiration artist, Michele Ferguson. I think I stumbled onto Michele’s blog one day, and loved how she spells her name–with one “L.” I noticed her work popping up on different blogs and soon I became a follower. She really inspires me as a paper artist too, with her CAS style and crispy white designs with pops of color.

Thanks so much for joining me today!

25 Days of Christmas Tags

Hello Everybody!

The 25 Days of Christmas Tags is in full swing and I have another pretty tag to share with you today! You can get all the details, and link up your own holiday tag over at Tracey’s blog right here: https://inmycreativeopinion.blogspot.com/2017/11/the-25-days-of-christmas-tags-main-post.html

Today’s tag was inspired by Vicki Dutcher, from CAS-UAL Fridays, on Day 3. Take a look at Vicki’s beautiful tag!

I found a lot of inspiration in Vicki’s tag. I loved the way her alcohol inked background looks so shiny and metallic in the photo, but I thought if I cut the tag out of green foil, it wold look too dark. So I added shiny green foil on the bottom, to make my little dancing Christmas faerie stand out.

I love that shine! I used Poppystamps and Memory Box dies to create all the pretty design elements!

Thanks so much for joining me today!

Tag You’re It Challenge #75

Hello Everybody!

Today I am playing along with the TYIC Challenge #75. Featured Artist Marcia Hill has created such a pretty scene to welcome in Autumn. If you hurry, you can still play along and link up your Autumn card over at the TYIC Blog right here: http://tagyoureitchallenge.blogspot.com/2017/10/tag-youre-it-75.html

I brought out my copic markers and a few Paper Sweeties stamps to create an Autumn Blessings tag. I had created a card with a similar design for the Paper Sweeties Blog, and always thought it would look pretty on a tag. I added a few highlights with some glitter and glue, to remind me of the frosty mornings ahead for most of us!

This particular Autumn season has been difficult. My hubbie got downsized in August, and we have been busy setting up a lot of Google Hang Outs and traveling for interviews, mostly in Florida where we would like to relocate. We try to remain positive while the process takes so long to complete. Of course, it’s stressful, and full of worries about the future, our security, and how to get to where we want to be. I appreciate the thoughts and prayers, and especially the very sweet cards and notes that I have received from a few crafty friends. That’s one of the things that I am most grateful about this fall! Keep those fingers crossed, those prayers coming, and love in your heart!

Thanks so much for joining me today!
