Winning Tag
(Prize:  $50 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp)

It's all starts with the fabulous colour combination of red, white and kraft.  The richly coloured red sleigh looks fun and festive with the brightly coloured packages all tied up with ribbon.  The metal blades of the sleigh are settled into a snow drift with lots of snow falling all around.
A beautiful, creative, winter scene, that makes you feel the excitement and chill in the air!
Congratulations Bonnie!!

Make sure to grab your Winner's badge.

Top Tags
(Prize:  $25 gift certificate each from Simon Says Stamp)

Pat (Colourful Card Creations)

Congratulations Nancy, T., and Pat!!

These three top tags are as diverse as they are beautiful.
Starting with Nancy's muted colours of her snowy winter forest scene, this tag leaves you with a peaceful, tranquil feeling.
T.'s gorgeous ink layered background sparkles, while her beautiful, ornate ornament adds another big punch of colour with lots of dimension and texture.
Pat's tag starts with a textured holly background, which is highlighted with silver and blue.  The tranquil winter scene is so pretty with the mix of soft, delicate colours and finished beautifully with a silver frame.

Congrats to Nancy, T., and Pat!
