Can you believe that we are almost to the single digits on the countdown to Christmas! I thought I would be done with buying gifts by now but I still have a few that are stumping me. I went out shopping last night but still will need to go out again this week to finish up.
It is also Tuesday and time for another fun challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. This week the challenge is MAKE IT A TAG!!! Who doesn't take a look at every tag on the presents under the tree. This week we want you to create a tag, it can be any kind at all just make sure you have fun creating it! We also have a fabulous sponsor this week
I love snowmen so when I saw this cutie I knew I needed to create my tag with it. This tag is going on a snowflake bag that I bought for a gift for a friend at school. I used a doily as the back that I took off the table at a new restaurant my sister and I went to a week ago. They probably wondered where all the doilies on the table went when they cleaned up. A great find for the price of a delicious lunch.
The ladies once again really out did themselves this week with their tag creations. Their creations are so wonderful each week! Be sure to stop by and leave them some love.

I give a lot of gift cards every year for Christmas so to make it a little more personal I try to dress up them up a bit with a handcrafted holder. I chose this one to make this year after seeing it on Joni's Blog, she gave great instructions to make it, thanks Joni! You can't see it in the picture but it sparkles all over because I dotted each snowlkake on the DP with Stickles. Also all the snowflake embellishment either have been glittered or are made with prism paper so they have a lot of shine and sparkle. I also decided to make it hang this year so it could be put on the tree. I made the largest one so I could add a few goodies if I wanted with the card. I used a 12x12 piece of double sided DP (Bo Bunny). I may add a greeting to the back, I'm not sure yet.
