25 Days of Christmas Tags '13 - Day 1



If you are here for my Lil'Inkers November Release Projects click HERE or scroll down!


It is that time of the year again, and I am starting even earlier than last year with my 25 Days of Christmas Tags Series.  Each day for the next 25 days I will be posting a new Christmas tag. This is the third year that I am doing this see all my previous posts HERE and my Pinterest boards for 2011 and 2012. Every year I would say I am going to make all my Christmas tags and every year I was either buying them or making them at 2:00 in the morning Christmas Eve! Once I started this tradition I found that I was actually inspiring others to get going on their tags.  My two tag's Pinterest Boards are among the most popular I have.

This year I am switching things up a little bit and I have asked some of my friends to join me as my guests.  Sweet bloggy friend, Lesley Croghan is my first guest.  Lesley made this fabulous badge for me to use for these posts and she made these gorgeous tags to share with us today. Please visit her blog to see how she has linked her tags up to the newest Merry Monday Challenge.




Here is my tag for Day 1...
