Christmas Wednesday

I figured after my recent bombardment of Christmas postings I would limit the next few to Wednesday posts. :)  This yummy shot is from the peppermint cake balls that I made for last Thanksgiving/Black Friday festivities.  They are the inspiration (kinda) for these tags. :)
Here was the starting point (see my tootsies at the edge of the pic? LOL).  I gathered all my red, white, red/white punched or die cut shapes, tags, and some other whatnot that struck me.
 These were made using dies from PTI and a couple Marvy punches.  My first tags and I have already veered away from just a red/white scheme!  LOL :)
After the tags were all assembled they still looked a little plain. :(  A little Stickles to the rescue!!!  Each mini tag had snowflakes.  All the snowflake centers got a dot of sparkle to give some umph to the tag as a whole.  Whatcha think?

There are more to come, but the rains came before I could get some good pictures taken.  Hopefully the rest will have their glam shots taken soon so they can make their web debut.  :)

I've gotten my glitter on here:

  2. The snowflakes add just the right touch!

    SEEING RED

    A man who was out of his head
    Was claiming he always saw red.
    He saw it all day,
    At work and at play,
    And saw it at night while in bed.
