BugABoo Winter Fairy Skating Xmas Tag

Had a successful yard sale today. I organize the yard sale for my homeowner's association each Spring getting everyone permits & placing free ads in online newspaper & Craig's List. Had rained a lot last night but no rain today. Sold both my former Cricut machines (Cricut Expression 2 & one that preceded the Exp 2; I'm enjoying my new Cricut Explore Air), cards, all my Stampin' Up stamps I had for sale along with SU blocks in a case (do not need the blocks anymore now that I have the MISTI tool), portable air conditioner, electric mower, edger, grinder. 2 vacuum cleaners, kitchen tools, from daughter's apt (bedroom bed frame & dining room table & chairs; these were from her college apt, we figured when she moves out from home she can start over and it's less than having to ship/transport the furniture), baby travel crib/playpen, shoes, tshirts, Christmas items, suitcases, Mc D Dalmation Happy Meal Toys and much more. One funny item that sold was a Billy Ray Cyrus cassette that I had won years ago along with some popcorn & pocorn bowls when daughter was younger and I won for most Box Tops for Education donated.

Created this Christmas Tag using BugABoo digi, Winter Fairy Skating. Colored digi with markers & pencil colors.

Used Simon Says Stamp Stitched dies. Stamped SSS sentiment.

Added twine.
