My Christmas Stocking

Here are the goodies I received from Melissa for the Christmas Stocking Swap put together by Lisa!  Stop by their blogs and see how talented these ladies are!

Melissa packed it with so much wonderful stuff!  I can't wait to use it all.  She really did a great job.  This was a fun swap and makes the season so much fun.  I love getting goodies in the mail.

 I'm still finishing up my tags.  I have two more to go, one-n-a half, really, since I'm working on eleven, and I'll post the final six when I finish. 

Heehee, Enrique's Baby I Like It is playing while I preview, I love that song!!  Makes me wanna get up and dance!

A View Of Christmas

Here are some pics from my holiday.  Some are leading up to the day and then the day itself.  We had such a wonderful Christmas and I hope you all did too!

Making gingerbread and sugar cookies.  What a goof ball Santino is!!

Sophia helped me make stroffoli.  They can be tedious with  rolling all the tiny balls.

Every year all the nieces and nephews put on their Christmas pj's for the annual pic. 

My table all set for dinner.

Christmas morn.

Phew, all this Christmas stuff is sooooo tiring!!!

Twelve Tags Of Christmas Inspired By Tim....

Created by moi.  Let me say this, in no way do these come close to that man's work.  He is in a whole other caliber of talent, but I really had fun doing this!!  I only have 6 so far, I will make the rest and post them when I finish.

I really like this tag.  From my DCWV Christmas stack that I've had for about 3 yrs and still haven't put a dent in, came the paper. I glimmermisted with the iridescent for some sheen. I used my Heidi Swapp heart ghost shapes and put them through my xyron sticker maker then put doodlebugs glitter on it and glued them onto white cardstock with the accent glossy glop.  The wings are from a glimmermist pkg I have, then I cut the doves with my cricut Joy of the Season cart. They got some glitter as well. Sprinkling of bling here and there, some pearly beads to dangle and there you go

This one I made with my ink blending tool, some red and green and blended away on the tag. Glimmermisted with the iridescent.  The deer was from cricut, same cart.  A shiny Merry Christmas sticker on top, and I stamped with Tim's holiday postcard stamps then added some little pearls.  I think it came nice.

This one is too cute, I love that polar bear, I made him for a swap hosted by Lisa 2 yrs ago and thought he'd look great here!  Same cart again, as well as the peace.  I used some chunky glitter I had for peace and on the snowflakes as well.  I blended the tag with the blue inkpad, glimmermisted with the iridescent and some red and black stickles for the bear.

I love Santa!  I collect Santas, and this came from a postcard pack I have.  I cut him out and glued him on the tag, which I blended with red ink, then stamped over it with a large composed letter stamp from Stampin Up! inked up in the same red. Glimmermisted with the iridescent for sheen.  I did a bit of stickling on the tree with green, glimmermisted and gold stickled the flowers and cut out the little tag with the cricut, then stamped that with peace at Christmas and added the gold star.

I think this one is very pretty.  For this, I used a mask (Tim's) then blended with the olive green ink.  Removed the mask and blended with walnut.  I also used my iridescent glimmermist to give it a sheen, glimmermisted the flowers and stickled too.  Used a stamp from Rhonna Rarrar,  a Christmas collection and some bling.

Hands down, this one is my fave!!  Again, the Santa comes from my postcard pack, it is very ethereal.  I blended with blue, then used my Stampin Up! roller with the baroque stamp inked in the blue and rolled away.  Stickled the border with the silver, cut out joyful with the blackletter cart for cricut and sent it through the sticker maker.  Sprinkled the glitter then covered it in the glossy accent goo.  I also smeared Santa's beard with some glue and sprinkled some white glitter on him and used iridescent stickles on his hat. A little bling on the bottom and there ya go ;)

And here is the group together.  I hope you like them!
