Hello! I've had a couple of cards to share for the last few weeks, but December has been pretty crazy around here, and I'm just now getting the chance to share them. During the 25 Days of Christmas Tags events, one of my favorite tags I made used Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Poinsettias. (You can see the tag HERE.) It creates a large, beautiful flower, and I knew when I made the tag that I wanted to use it again to make some cards. My first card is large. It's 5x7 in size, which I rarely do, but the size was perfect to really let the poinsettia shine.

Good Morning! I finally created my first Christmas card of the year....clearly I'm a little behind, but I am excited about the way it turned out. I've used lots of Pretty Pink Posh goodness today.
For the sentiment, I combined two of my favorite products. I die cut "merry" from their Merry Christmas Script die and added "wishes" from the Simple Sentiments stamp set. Pretty Pink Posh's Lattice Background is something I'm really loving lately, so I used that on my card base but left all the pieces intact. It adds a great subtle texture.

Y'all, we made it! Can you believe it? We are on the last day of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags. A whopping 53 tags later, and I'm sharing my very last tag with you today. Our bonus sponsor (yay more prizes for you!) is My Favorite Things.
Thanks so much for dropping by today and for all the other days you've stopped by this month! You are much appreciated. Also, I want to express many, many thanks to Tracey for organizing this incredible event. There is SO MUCH WORK done behind the scenes to organize and put on this event. It starts months before it even begins. If you have a second, I would love if you would head over to Tracey's blog and give her a big thank you. While there you'll surely be inspired by the fabulous tags being shared today, and you'll find all the details on how to play along. Also, you'll have one more week to get your last tags in, so I hope you'll continue to play along!

Good morning! Today is a little extra special because I'm playing double roles as both a Pretty Pink Posh Guest Designer and a member of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags Design Team.
It's also special because I think the world of Pretty Pink Posh's owner. Paulina is as genuine, kind, and generous as they come! I followed Paulina long before her company was born, and she has amazed me by her goodness time and time again. Being a guest designer for her has truly been a sweet blessing. I just had to sing her praises today!

Hello! It's our fourth and final week of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags. Crazy, right? Today's sponsor is Erin Lee Creative. She has some really unique stamp designs, and my tag today uses Aztec Antlers and Holiday Sentiments stamp sets.
When I started making this tag, I had a clear vision in mind. I was going make a shape tag and emboss the deer in gold on a sheet of vellum. I wanted it really light and airy. Well, obviously I didn't end up sticking with that plan, and it all started with the embossing powder. Instead of plain gold I decided that Midas Touch Wow embossing glitter would be even more beautiful. Looking at the glitter reminded me of this card by Dawn Woleslagle...it's one of those cards that you just never forget. And that's when I decided I needed to do a dark background...and then I pretty much ended up with a simplified CASE of Dawn's card. But it just fit the design of this stamp so well.
Well, folks, that's all for me today. I have to say, I was really happy with how this turned out. It's so different from anything I have created so far. As always, you can find more inspiration over on Tracey's blog. I hope you are having a beautiful Sunday!

I'm so excited to share today's tags. I have been a huge fan of The Greetery right from the start because I have been a huge fan of Betsy for a decade now. Everything she does is quite simply amazing. She wows me time and time again. I can't speak enough about her kindness, generosity, and shere creative genius.
Today I'm sharing a bunch of tags using The Greetery's Candy Pops Circle Dies. These dies are so brilliantly designed and so easy to use. I'm 100% a fan. My first tag will accompany a hot chocolate gift. It is full of yummy toppings to add a little something extra to the hot chocolate. I used a greeting from Candy Pops Sentiments and the bubble option for the Candy Pops Circle Dies.
Thanks so much for visiting today! You guys leave the sweetest comments that truly brighten my day. Thank you! Speaking of ways to brighten a day, make sure you head over to Tracey's blog next. The Greetery has such a powerhouse design team. Their tags are so inspiring!
