  1. super cute tag, awesome! so glad you played along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

  2. I can't say which I prefer, because you did a great job on both! I love colored embossing. It's so pretty!
    Thanks for playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

  3. This is a fabulous tag, and looks like it was rather quick and easy, too. I think I like this one better than the green as it has both colors in it, but they are both fabulous. Thanks for playing with LTSCB.

  4. Thanks for entering Suzy Bee's and all of my Craftyhazelnut's challenges with your lovely crafting - hope to see you again soon. x

  5. This tag is absolutely adorable and got me all giddy about Christmas already! I love the look of the woodgrain background and how the bright red letters pop against it. You did an amazing job and I'm so glad you submitted it to this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
