2nd Day of Christmas

"On the second day of Christmas my true love brought to me, 2 turtledoves...."  Now that I have that song in your head, we can move onto the crafting.  This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries and I really like making Christmas tags.  In fact I like them so much that I am doing 12 Days of Christmas Tags based loosely on the song, "The 12 Days of Christmas".  The story that inspired these tags is posted in a video on my blog on Day1.  I'm not going to go into it here, but it is something that has been fun for my family for a long time.

3 Girl JAM ribbon is definitely my go-to ribbon for crafting and this tag was no exception.  I grabbed Halloween Harvest because I liked the hints of red and green peeking through the gold.  It was the perfect compliment to the tag.  I also used the following items:

DCWV - The Christmas matstack
PaperTrey Ink - Vintage Cream card stock
Black cardstock from my stash cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge at 1.5" and coated with Glossy Accents
Ranger #8 tags
Recollection Bling
Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
Crystal Stickles

Now be sure to head over to DJ's Sundries to see Day 1 and to learn how to enter the contest that's going on.  Here's a little sneak peak of the Day 1 tag:

Thanks for stppping by and remember to take some time to enjoy the little things today.
