There's still time to play along ......

Hello there, me again ......

The first Holiday TAGplorations Blog Hop from STAMPlorations is well underway ..... have you joined in with the fun yet?
No problem .... there's still time you know!  You have until November 25th to link up your festive tags .... there's some fabulous prizes up for grabs.  Check out the STAMPlorations Blog for all the details

Today is the final day of the inspirations posts ..... there's been some amazing tags created by the Design Team ..... hope you've enjoyed seeing them all.

Today's tag from me is a nice CAS design ...... classic black and gold with one of those cute little Christmas Reindeer taking centre stage again ....

The tag's been cut twice, from black cardstock, using the CUTplorations Luggage Tag Die.
Taking one of the tags I then die the words from the top using one of  the CUTplorations phrase dies, and cut it again, this time from gold glitter card.

I inlaid the gold die cut into the black tag and then joined both tags together to securing the words on the back.

I stamped the reindeer onto Kraft card, coloured him using Distress Inks and fussy cut around him.

He was given a touch of sparkle with some glitter and a festive jingle bell tied around his neck before attaching him onto the tag using foam pads.

I finished off by adding a few dots of snow with a white gell pen, and edged around the tag with a gold marker

I'm also linking this up to the 12 Tags of Christmas with Loll & Friends ........ I'm trying to play along each day, so far so good but it is only Day 2!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
The trip to town this afternoon was postponed last minute due to the fact that the weather was dreadful.  The warm and cosy craft room seemed a much better idea ..... and I do have a workshop to get ready for.
I still made a start on my Christmas shopping though ...... the mobile phone and the bank card are wonderful things.  I got just what I wanted and it's waiting for me to collect on Friday.

Cheerio until next time .....
