The Holidays Are Coming!

Good morning! The holidays are coming up, and I have to say... I'm ready! I decided that this year I would make lots of my gifts and start early to avoid the stress. I kept my word... I have gifts made, cards prepared, tags ready! I have had lots of fun creating new items: framed collages, felt and fabric brooches, appliqued t-shirts, and more! But today, I will share one of my Christmas cards and one of my tags.

I love how this gift turned out: a little glitter, a little tulle, a couple hand cut leaves and ribbon tied it all together. I adore that flocked polka dot paper from Doodlebug Designs. Card base is chartreuse from Waste Not Paper.

I embellished a shipping tag with this pre-printed reindeer tag from Martha Stewart. I added some glitter, leaves and a coordinating corner, then inked the edges of the tag.
So, today, I am going fishing with Stephen and the kids. I am not fishing, but crafting. My job is to keep Elan entertained when he's sick of throwing his line in. ;) I have a basket full of things to do and it's going to be a pretty day, so why not craft outdoors?! Hope you all have a great weekend!
