Tags for Merry Monday

Good Merry Monday Morning!

Kreative Kristie (and she is truly creative!) chose our challenge this week.

I was happy to see this challenge as I had a NBUS Poppystamp Die.

I had seen this card, done by the very talented, Marybeth
and fell in love with these dies.

They stayed on my list for a while.  When I saw this challenge,
it was the excuse I needed put in an order.

I die cut the tags and embossed them with a retired SU embossing folder.

The holly is from Memory box, cut from white with color sponged  
on the leaves and slightly shaped.  
I punched 1/16" circles from Cherry Cobbler for the berries.

A little twine and it was done.

Tags are so much fun, especially Christmas tags
 and I love seeing them on cards.

I hope you'll put a tag on a Christmas card and join us at

Thanks for joining me today.
