I know it's a busy week for everyone with the countdown on for Christmas, but wanted to share these photos of adorable Christmas tags I made inspired by Michelle Clark another Stampin' Up demonstrator.  They don't take long to assemble, so they're a good last minute project!

I used the cute little antlers from SU's "Wonderland" stamp set, pearls of different sizes which were colored with markers and added tiny red pom-poms for Rudolph's nose all suggested by Michelle.  Great idea Michele, thanks for sharing and inspiring!

Here's a side view showing the cute little pom-pom nose!

Also wanted to share a picture of my decorated fireplace mantel.  The idea for the bulb swag came from Pinterest of course, from Madeline Grace's blog I thought it was a great idea.

Here's a picture of all the bulbs strung together (had to make two strings as I didn't anticipate making the swag so long), eventually just tied them together.

Doesn't it look pretty?  Thanks Madeline for a great idea!

I love to read your comments, hope you leave one for me today.
Merry Christmas to all my fellow bloggers!

The Paper Players Sketch # 273

This is a very versatile Tic Tac Toe Challenge from Sandy at The Paper Players, lots of fun options to use.

I think my card could qualify for either  a diagonal or a horizontal line item, what do you think?

I couldn't help myself a few weeks ago when Papertrey Ink released their November stamp and die sets, this "Winter Woods" set just sang out to me.  It reminds me of winter days in MI when you could spot a beautiful cardinal in the white snow, just a lovely sight (even though there was snow).  My inspiration or should I say CAS came from Nichole Heady with just a few minor changes. I did use the SU newer embossing folder for the falling snow, but it doesn't show up in the photo.

I'm sending this card up North to a friend in MI who celebrates a December birthday, I'm thinking this card is perfect for him, snow or no snow, what do you think?

Here's a side shot showing the glittery snow on the snow bank.

That's it for today, I'd love to hear from you, won't you leave a comment
