It's time for a Seasonal Tag at Make My Monday

Hi everybody, I do hope your Christmas preparations are further forward than mine.  But we did manage to get the tree up over the weekend, and re-organise the kitchen - so a job well done.  However, I have run out of cards so shop bought ones are coming back out of the cupboard.  Today is the final challenge of the year for Make My Monday, and we are looking for Seasonal Tags.  Please pop across to the challenge - there are some lovely pieces of work for your inspiration.

I'm sure most people will recognise the Father Christmas image - from Tim Holtz - probably one of my favourites ever.    I stamped with Archival Ink and then coloured lightly with pencils.  The tag itself I coloured with distress stains and to take the colour back I went over with picket fence.  Ran it through the Bug, and then highlighted the snowflakes with ink.  The branches at the bottom are from the TK Pine Cone die, and I still haven't mastered the art of getting them right - so no pine cone.

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.



  1. This is stunning Val. The Father Christmas is just gorgeous and I really love the snowflake background and fir branch trim.
    Hope you get the hang of the pine cone (how come Tim makes it look so easy!!!)
    Wishing you and yours a very Happy Christmas and all the best for 2012.
    Hugs, Fliss xx

  2. Stunning Val...!

  3. Oh, I just LOVE the sponging and the texture of all the die cut pieces!!! This is beautiful! I really like the Santa backed by sheet music! :) I hope you and your have a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year! :)

  4. The tag is fabulous Val, even if it doesn't have a pine cone, lol! I treated myself to that die this week but haven't had time to have a play with it yet. Might even have to wait until after next Tuesday, :(, lol!

    I'll take this opportunity to wish you a very Happy Christmas and an even better New Year.
