I'm so excited!!!!!

One of my favorite stamp companies (JustRite) is having a challenge this week that is SO right up my alley!!!!

Challenge number 056 is to make a shaped Christmas card or tag,,,,,any shape EXCEPT a square or a rectangle!!! I absolutely ADORE Christmas tags!!!! they are fun to make, and rarely get tossed away,,,,In fact, I send them AS christmas cards often,,,,,,,,I simply sign the back FROM THE YOUNGS with the year on it,,,,,,I usually see the tag hanging from their christmas tree :)

And JustRite has some of the most GORGEOUS and elegant fonts for their sentiment stamps that I have ever seen! My one hang up???? I own just ONE set of their Christmas stamps,,,,and it's sentiments,,,,,not images,,,,,sigh. Well, I have another few sets on order,,,,,,but they won't make it on time,,,,,,,

soooooo,,,,,,there's nothing to do but do my best and use what I have :)

I am entering SIX tags (faint,,,,,I know, but I was having so much fun I couldn't stop!!) I am going to give each tag it's own blog entry so that I can link each tag directly to the JustRite challenge individually :) so,,,,,,without further ado,,,,,,,,

my first tag,,,,,,

I just LOVE pink for Christmas colors,,,,I found this image on the Graphics Fairy Website (see sidebar for their button) and cut it out using Labels 11,,,,,,,some fussy cutting, diecuts, a few pearls and gems and some feathers to simulate snow (this little beauty has snowballs in her hands, I couldn't resist the feathers!) and VOILA!!!!!! a darling tag that my youngest has already claimed as HERS LOL.

Hope you enjoyed and thanks so much for looking!!!!


  1. Wow, you have certainly been busy! I really like all your tags, and especially this one--such a sweet image and great colors and embellishments. Good luck!

  2. Your tags are just beautiful!! What a great idea to send them as christmas cards. I have just started to make tags and they are addictive.Good luck to you

  3. Gorgeous project Holly! Love the beautiful vintage image! Thanks for joining along with the JR challenge :)

  4. Lovely tag, I like the use of pearls instead of a ribbon tie. Love the image you used and fluffy feathers are a special touch.

  5. All your tags are AMAZING! This is my favorite though!
