Gorgeous floating alcohol ink sky Loll for your tree snowscape. TFS and especially for hosting your awesome 12 tags of Christmas for the 3rd year. It always inspires me to get my tags made up ahead of time :-)

Bonnie's shaving cream background and gorgeous heat embossed tree tag is gorgeous too. Wow..Bonnie got 3 tags in one without it looking cluttered :-) Hugs, Nancy
