Christmas Shopping

The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is TAGS.  You can make a stand alone tag or add one to a card as I have done.  Whichever way you go, your creation must be vintage, shabby chic or primitive.

We are happy to welcome back A Day for Daisies as our sponsor for this challenge.  They will provide a $12 gift certificate to their store to one random winner to go along with the winner's badge they will get from Sugar Creek Hollow.  The Design Team will also choose one card as their Top Pick. The creator will also receive a winner's badge and will be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.

Surprise, surprise, I have done another Christmas card - two in a row must be a record for me.  This time I am using an adorable image from our sponsor called Christmas Shopping and created a tag on a card.

My 5 year-old Granddaughter is staying here for 9 days (along with her 3 year-old Brother and they leave on Monday when I see a LARGE glass of wine in my future - but that is a whole other story) and she saw this card and wondered why I would do something bad and cut the flowers out of music paper.  I had to explain that I printed the music on paper and then punched it and I did not destroy some sheet music.  At least she has respect for books and the like.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
