25 Days of Christmas Tags '13 - Day 19



Welcome back to Day 19 of 25 Days of Christmas Tags!

Today my guest is the fabulous Virginia Lu! Virginia's blog is Yes, Virginia and if you haven't been there before you are in for a treat.  She embraces new techniques and creates the most stunning pieces of art.  Virginia and I were on the Fresh Squeezed Stamps design team last term and I have had the pleasure of meeting Virginia a couple times and was actually dining this past summer in her dining room.  Her food is every bit as good as it looks!  She is so sweet and would do anything for you.  Today, for me, she created this fantastic paint chip tag.  I hope you get over to her blog to leave her some love and have a look around, you won't be disappointed.






Today I used the the Lil' Inker folding tag die to make two sweet tags. If you haven't figured it out I love Christmas and I love jingle bells.  My first tag has two sequin embellished Holly Jolly trees and the second tag the smallest holly from the Holly Jolly with a sequin for the berry. I love making some tags in non traditional holiday colours.

I think non-traditional colors are very "hip" (am I showing my age?)
All of the tags you have featured have been wonderful.
