  1. Loll, Love your gorgeous splashed background for your beautiful stenciled holly leaves and pretty red rhinestones. Your died ribbon adds a wonderful Splash of Red!

    Julia's Guest Designer tag is Gorgeous as well with her rich red colors and fun embellishments. I am off to check out her blog.

    TFS my friend and hosting another awesome tag event day. Hugs, Nancy

  2. I love the use of the stencil against your water splashed background! The tiny red rhinestones accent it so beautifully! The bright red seam binding finishes this off so perfectly! What a fabulous tag by Julia too!

  3. That background is GORGEOUS and the holly blends in so perfectly! Love those tiny berries and the way you've done the sentiment so it blends but yet is unique! Love that curly tie too!

  4. My gosh, how did day 6 get here so fast?!!! Love the tag Loll, the holly looks so pretty on that beautiful background. I know I need to get busy when I get back home, but will have a funeral as my MIL passed this morning. But I am still going to try to get a tag in after I'm done with elderly sitting. Hugs, Brenda

  5. Beautiful Loll love that stencil. I need some holly it really looks so pretty against the watercolour background.

  6. Love the beautiful background and the holly. Perfect red accents on the green with the gemstones and the ribbon.

  7. I love the vivid shades of green, all so smoothly blended. The rhinestones and ribbon are a beautiful contrast. The red tones on Julia's tag are so dramatic - the Washi is a nice touch.

  8. So thrilled to join you on Day 6 Loll (finally posted on the correct day ;) !) the greens on your tag are so beautiful, a wonderful watercolor splash background - love the holly vine and rhinestone berries! A wonderfully festive tag! (I forgot to stamp on my tag - again!?!!)

  9. Another beauty Loll!! I love the lighter green background and the darker green holly leaves with the pops of red in the berries and bow...very striking! Your talent just amazes me my friend!! :0)

  10. That delicate holly sprig with those tiny berries is just gorgeous, Loll ... and Julia's rich red scene is fabulous with that tiny white reindeer! Hugs, Anita :)

  11. Such a lovely tag with the stenciling over that background and a pop of red!

  12. Two more stunners ..... love the traditional colours of your tag Loll and that holly stencil looks so pretty. xx

  13. I really love that holly stencil Loll and the pretty greens with the red gem berries and the lovely bright red ribbon to finish, and then Julie's bright red tag with the bleached alcohol trees stencilled on to it. Great embellishments with the deer and the pine cone too. x

  14. Two very different tags, both fabulous and both so very creative. Thank you x

  15. So pretty...
    I'm a sucker for vibrant green colours like that.
    Love it. X
