Tag~You're It! I have 2 more tags done!

I've already finished one more tag than I did in all of last year's twelve! Being sick and confined to the house does have its advantages!

For the snowman tag, Tim chose shades of blue.  As I've mentioned before, purple and I have a long history.  I saw this tag as my chance to "Kellyfy" it with some purple pizazz!  Tim used acrylic/acetate for the snowflakes on the side, and while I did make one (it's kind of hiding behind the snowman), I wanted something that was more visible, so I went with vellum.  I love the way he pulled tulle through the button holes, so I did that too.  And, while I admired his snowman's "25", I added some dimension with one more snowflake.

For the tag below (Tim's Tag #3), I used my large Fiskars Stamp Press to arrange all sorts of Christmas stamps from Kaiser Craft and Close to My Heart to make a hodge podge. I then embossed it with a snowflake pattern, added some greenery, berries (love that idea to just color clear ones with your own inks/markers), and some twine to finish.  I like that he throws an easy one in once in awhile.

So, I'm sick.  A cough you can probably hear through your computer speakers. 

No housework done.  No Christmas cards done.  Minimal Christmas decorations done.  No cookies done.  But, I have priorities.  4 tags done.


  1. Love your versions of Tim's tags! we used the same snowman die - hope you feel better soon (although being home sick DOES have it's perks!!
