Fancy a festive challenge ........

Happy weekend folks .......

I hope you're having a good one.
I think the festive season has started early here ........ I was out last night at a lovely event ..... a bit of a girlie evening.  It's not often that Lauren and I get to go out together so it was extra special. We had a great time ..... cocktails and canapes at the event, then we met up with hubby and his crew for pizza and pasta, and we finished the evening off in Chris's place.
And ..... this is a scheduled post as I'm out again this evening ....... party animal or what!  I'll suffer for it tomorrow no doubt!

Anyhow .... enough about my galavanting, it's time to get November's Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge underway (only a little over 7 weeks to go until the big day .... just saying!)

It's an Anything Goes theme with the optional twist this month of ....... TAG!

Now you know me .... I do love my tags.  And I do really need to get started on my festive makes so here we are ...... a cute little gift tag (just need to make a start on buying the gifts to put it on now!)

A simple black tag spritzed with Perfect Pearls Mica spray to create the wintry sky

I then cut two pieces of white cardstock for the snowy hills, stamped my greeting onto one of them and attached them to the bottom of the tag ....... I did use foam pads to add some dimension

The trees have been stamped onto some coloured card from my stash and then fussy cut and added to the tag to create my little winter scene ......

A few glitter glue baubles to decorate the trees ....

And some holly alongside of the sentiment to finish off .....

All the stamps I've used are from the HLS Christmas Joy set.

Now it's over to you ...... happy Christmas crafting!
And don't forget, there's a prize for the challenge winner ..... a $20 gift certificate to spend in the HLS store

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your weekend.
I'm currently at one of my favourite bar/restaurants on the island ..... The Seven Kingdoms.  We're out with some friends so it'll be good food, nice wine and great company ........ with the odd G&T no doubt. Well it is a gin distillery after all!!

Cheerio until next time ......
