Tis The Season

Just a quick post to link up my project with a few challenges.  Today I've got a cute little tag to share. I broke out the watercolour pencils to create this....

So, first I stamped my gingerbread man (Hero Arts) on my white tag and coloured him with my watercolour pencils.  I added some glitter to his hat and used a white gel pen to add white " frosted" lines to his arms. I cut out a larger green tag and attached the two tags together.  I stamped my sentiment (winter wonderland set by Recollections) on kraft paper and fussy cut it out and attached it to the tag.  I added the green and red ribbon and tied a bow with some more red ribbon.  It will be a great tag to put on a gift to someone this Christmas.  :-)

I'm linking up to the following challenges:
Jingles Belles - "Shopping Our Stash".  Use at least one item that is one year (or more) old.  Both my ribbon and my gingerbread stamp are over a year old.  So is the glitter.  The paper used was scraps too and could be that old as well!  :-)
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Anything Goes with a recipe.  2 CS (Christmas Stamp I assume), 1 image, 1 sentiment, 2 embellishments (I hope two types of ribbon count.  I wonder if the glitter does?).
Festive Friday - here's the inspiration photo

I was inspired by the colours and the gift tags on the presents.  Presents need gift tags!  I've got the glitter too just not gold.

Well that's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
