PaperPlay Challenges - Holiday Tags

Good morning everyone!! I just love waking up to the winter wonderland outside my window. Sadly it's not to last much longer :( 

This week on PaperPlay Challenges we would like to see your Holiday Tags - tags that you are going to add to your gifts.

I haven't even started my tags yet *gulp* but am mostly done with my Christmas cards, so it's not so bad. 

I went a little bit "T!m" on my tag today... of course nowhere near his standard of excellence.. lol... I'd need a full year to make all my tags as detailed as his. 

hmm.. it's too hard to get a decent photo of the Santa, but I have him covered with glossy accents so that he pops up from the tag. I also used glossy accents, and red ink, to highlight the "25"

The holly leaf stamp is from Waltzing Mouse's Around Christmastime set. I added a JOY charm that I bought in the NEC this year and secured it to the seam binding using a dark green scrappers floss. 

I hope you like :) Don't forget to visit my teamies' blogs, they have come up with some wonderful tags to inspire you!

I made a card for a challenge recently, and only after I had it made did I realise that I had to use a specific image, which I hadn't used, so the card couldn't be entered. It's not often that upon finishing a card that I can honestly say that I'm 100% happy with it.. but OF COURSE this one I love!! I haven't decided what to do with it yet so I can't post the whole card but here's a little peeky.... 

Have a great day!

Tease!!!! You know I love white cards so I really can't wait to see the rest of this one.
Fabulous tag, love that Santa stamp and gorgeous detailing.
I've come to the conclusion I need a lot more time, a lot more practice and a lot more stash to compete with Uncle Tim.
