Day 11 Tag

On the 11th day of Christmas, the design team gave to me...

A tag made with 11 buttons!

Hello Everyone! I thought I should get here to post this before the day is done! I've been knee deep in Christmas shopping and cleaning but I wanted to post today's tag!

I used the mini buttons from Basic Grey for my embellishments for this tag...these buttons are so cute! I sometimes lose them very easily but they make for cute, little additions to my projects.  

Hope this inspires you! Watch for tomorrow's tag! The last one in the reveal!! Thanks for checking them out!

Don't forget to scroll down and see the Sassy Saturday Sistah! Axa created a BEAUTIFUL creation! I won't give it away! You should go look for yourself! Cheerio!

Ok, now for a couple of sponsorships to tell you about.  First, Stamp Something is having their digi day challenge again.  All you have to do is use a digi image.  Here is some inspiration from the DT:

The next sponsorship is for One Stop Craft Challenge.  Their challenge to you is “SASSY CHRISTMAS”.  What a perfect challenge for all you SASSY ladies.  Here is mine:

SSD-reindeer-boxI used the new Reindeer games image, and attached it to a cute little gift box.  I’m sorry but I can’t remember where I got the template from.  Ok, that’s all for today, thanks for stopping by and have a great day.  Stay tuned for more tags!

A tag using 10 bling

This is Marilyn's tag! Isn't it gorgeous! The shape is great for the bling! And the nutcracker princess is coloured perfectly! Superb job Marilyn!

And this one is Kathy's! I LOVE these colours together! Kathy, this is stunning! The non-traditional colours work perfect with the way you coloured the image.  And the bling on the driedal is perfect! Excellent job! 

This one is mine (Amanda). I added 7 bling along the edge of the tag and there are 3 black jewels on the snowgirl! I added some extra bling with stickles on her lips and eyes too and some Stickles under her feet to resemble snow!  The stitching is actually a rub-on from Kiki's like a tape dispenser! It's great! I love it!

Day 8 Tag

On the 8th day, the design team gave to me...

A tag using 8 colours!

Today is my official day to reveal my tag!!  This one is for my step-niece...she is getting a gift card from Old Navy or American Eagle (I haven't decide which yet!) so I coloured the image and added the lettering to the eight colours are: Brown, Orange, Blue, Red, Green, Salmon, Black and White...I thought this makes her kinda festive looking and like she's getting her Christmas pressies purchased! :D (Maybe I should make her look like me! Maybe that will help me get mine done!!!)

Hope you enjoy the tag! Watch for tomorrow's tag! Day 9!
