Linda (Life in the Craft Lane) won last year's Christmas Tag event on this blog!!  Click HERE to see her winning tag from 2014.  I'm happy to say that Linda and I are now on the Design Team together for Happy Little Stampers.  Linda mostly makes CAS cards (like me!) ... but she has mastered all kinds of styles.  Drop by her blog to find out how she made the gorgeous tag below.


LOVE all the delicious layers and dimension on this beautiful tag.  Your layered poinsettia is amazing!  Thanks so much Linda!! xx

I'm excited to also have Vicki (All I Do is Stamp) as one of my Guest Designers.  Vicki LOVES colour ... as you'll see by her tag below.  She uses bright and bold elements and colours for many of her designs, which give them the "WOW" factor.  Check out her blog to see full details on the tag below.


Like I said above ... "WOW"!!  Gorgeous tag Vicki ... thank you SO MUCH!! xx

I'm also playing along with:
Happy Little Stampers November Christmas Challenge - Tag ... and ... Happy Little Stampers November Mixed Media Challenge - Tag

Come join in the fun at both these challenges too ... there are prizes to be won! :)

See you tomorrow with more mixed media Christmas tags!
