12 Tags of Christmas Funkie Junkie Style # 4

Welcome everyone and thank you for dropping in here.

Well, it's busy here this week but I have just managed to fit in another tag for the Funkie Junkie 12 tags of Christmas Challenge. If you click the link you can read all the details about this challenge, great fun to do and I have now nearly managed to catch up...
Here's my version of no 4
You can see Linda's original HERE. Once again, there were many of her ideas that inspired me, - the use of Burlap, her background and the whole home spun country feel of her tag.
I don't have the paper Linda used, so created my own ephemera paper with the help of stamps
My letters were also stamped, punched and mounted on some die cuts.
I just added one poinsettia only, mine was made using Spellbinder dies.
Like I did with earlier ones I made it into a Christmas card again.
The challenge is sponsored by the Funkie Junkie Boutique and is great fun to do.

One more to do and I'll be all caught up and I will have a good start on my Christmas cards. As it's not even Halloween yet, I'm feeling quite pleased with myself about that.

Thanks for visiting like always

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
