Welcome Christmas into your Heart!

Hi everyone! 

The first day of December!  Imagine that!  I spent it having fun in my craft room.  I wanted to enter a contest at Swirlydoos, so I decided to use the techniques from Sandy's 2nd tag at Scrapbooker's Paradise to create my entry.

Pictures just don't do these tags justice.  The sparkle and shimmer from the glitter and Inka Gold is just beautiful.  As the contest required a Santa on the tag, I made my pointsettia smaller and used a fussy cut image from Kaisercraft's St. Nicholas Collection.  Metal was also required, thus the metal corners!
For the next twelve days, Swirlydoos' designers are going to be handing out assignments to be completed.  These assignments must be posted to Swirlydoos' gallery by midnight EST on the day they are assigned.  The contest is open to anyone, using any supplies.  See more information here
Chat with the other contestants here.

Now I'm patiently waiting for a No More Shims Embossing Mat to arrive and then I'm going to tackle Sandy's 3rd tag!  It is cute, cute, cute!!

Have fun creating during this wonderful month full of glitter and sparkle!

Supplies used:

Tim Holtz tag
Distress Inks:  Barn Door, Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade
Kaisercraft "St Nicholas Collection" - Santa image
Tim Holtz "Tattered Flower Garland" die - pointsettia
