Yippee, It's Almost Christmas

Good Morning, I have a quick post for this week's ABC Christmas Challenge to share with you this week. We have reached the letter Y, just a few more weeks to go.
Yippee, It's Almost Christmas
That is our theme this week which means that you can do anything you want as long as it is a new Christmas project.

We have three great sponsors this week.

Our winner will receive 3 digis from Karen's doodles of their choice

I have been watching the 12 Tags of Christmas over on the Tim Holtz Blog and have decided to have a go at creating a tag of my own.

As I don't yet have any of the Distress Stains I have pulled out my Distress Inks and aged this tag in various shades of blue and then flicked the whole thing with a bit of water.  I have then stamped on all of my images and heat embossed the angel image using a blue metallic embossing powder which has a really pretty shimmer IRL.

I inked some ribbon to match and added a charm with some tinsel wire. The silver snowflakes are peel off stickers and the acrylic snowflake has been accented with flower soft to give it the look of real snow.

I hope that you will join us. I look forward to seeing your Christmas Creations. Be sure to pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge Blog and see the rest of the wonderful DT creations.
