Good Monday morning everyone!! I had a chance to play in the TLC challenge on Splitcoast today. Holly has  a great challenge for us...make holiday tags!!
I used the Rubbernecker Grand Mitten #SKU: 22-09 stamp to create my tags. They were stamped on a piece of Basic Grey dp and colored with Copics. The mittens were matted with taken with teal cardstock, a punched tag was added to the top, *to and from* were hand written on the front, and the Baker's Twine finishes them off....easy peasy!!
I need to make a few more of these for the grands Christmas presents. If I added another layer of cardstock to the backside and did a little sewing around the edges I could use these for gift card holders...hummmm...I think I'll give that a try!!!

It's below freezing this morning...yikes!!! We brought most of the plants inside so my house looks like a jungle...I'm not even going to think about all  the bugs that hitched a ride into the warm house!!! Have a great Monday!!

I know it has sure cooled down up here as well, first 110 now freezing, somewhere in the middle would be great. These are adorable tags, love the mittens and the paper you used, great stuff and will be so cute on packages.

How creative! Mitten images are the perfect tag! Yours are so cute and pretty too!

What a sweet tag for the grands, Joan! And what an even more inspired idea to turn these into gift cards! When you are done making all those that you need, make some extra for the Church craft fair next year. Don't you think some lucky Aunt, Mom or Nana would love to have some cute gift cards like this?! Hugs!

We even got a freeze all the way down here! Burr......But we've already warmed back up again. They don't seem to last long here - which is nice!

The weather's been crazy lately. We reached a high of 67 degrees today with cold temps headed our way,.
