25 Days of Christmas Tags - Day1



Welcome to another year of Christmas tag inspiration!
I can't tell you how excited I am to be doing this feature for the 4th year!

This year is going to be HUGE I have been busy organizing this event for a couple of months now. I am sure you are going to love all of the gorgeous tag inspiration you are going to get from 13 individual designers and 13 different design teams over the next 25 days! 

Top that off with fabulous prizes from some of your favourite manufacturers.
Details of how you can have a chance to win one of them is at the bottom of this post.
















To start off Day 1 I have a special guest, Carol Mayne, Just me c!
You probably know Carol and know that she is just the sweetest person who writes the most complimentary and thoughtful post comments all over blogland!  She is fabulously talented too, if you haven't already, you need to check out her blog. Another thing that Carol and I have in common is that we both speak Canadian! Hows that eh? 

Now if you recall, last year Carol was the winner of the tag kit giveaway for the 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2013!  How a propos that she be my first guest! I was so pleased when Carol said she would join me this year and create not one but two festive tags for us today...




I just love the colours (see Canadian spelling), the patterns. and the die cuts!
Visit Carol's blog HERE to take a closer look and and for another chance to win one of the prizes!

Yes, I have a tag too. I couldn't wait to play with some of my new Christmas stamps and dies (believe me there are a lot of them).  For my tag I did a little stenciling on the Lawn Fawn tag for the ice, a few stamped snowflakes in the air and a little elusive Wink of Stella. I Copic coloured the penguin and popped him up with foam tape.

I am also submitting this tag to Addicted to CAS #51!
