25 Days of Christmas Tags '13 - Day 17



Welcome back to Day 17 of 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Today my guest is Lisa Elton of My Paper Tales. I got to know Lisa very early on when she nominated my then very new blog for the Leibster Award! That was the beginning of getting to know Lisa and her fabulous style. There have been many conversations off line since them about cards, and family and four legged fur friends. She is absolutely the sweetest and she often is the first too comment on a post.  Lisa and Ii are now on the colourQ together so even more reasons too chat. Today she has a beautiful tag to share with us, so please pay her a visit and have a good look around.




Today I have a masculine Christmas tag to share. Yes ladies, guys can do sequins and embossing too! As long as the sequins and the embossing are mat--it's okay, right?
Thank you Virginia Lu for suggesting the Recollections mat gold powder, very nice!

Fabulous masculine tag. You have really proven that masculine can include gold and sequins. I can totally see this tag on a fishing rod or power drill. I am really enjoying your series and guests this year.
