Vintage Santa Tag

Hello everyone.

Well, the company is all gone :(   and the cousins have all cried.  In this past week, we've celebrated two brother's Birthdays (my husband and his younger brother - born 1 day apart - 8 years apart), American Thanksgiving, and two beautiful baptisms of our older two children, with a big celebration afterward with our Church.   It was a precious, beautiful, unforgettable time.  I am pretty weary now after all that excitement and a very busy house.  :)  But big blessings all around.

I will love to show you pictures another day.  As we were doing the baptisms we were in the tank with the kids and had one of our students take pictures.  So, as soon as we get them from him, I'll share a bit.

Today, I thought I'd show you a pretty little tag that I made quite some time ago for a magazine submission.  I really loved how it turned out, but it didn't get accepted, which is ok too, because I've been saving it to show you :)

I took out this pretty vintage Santa set from There She Goes called Season's Greetings

I love the vintage style Santa in the set and the pretty whimsical trees.  I colored them up with Prismacolor Pencils and trimmed them out, popping them up on some of the sentiments from the set that I had stamped on the "hills", which I had sewn on and glittered up.   Some pretty trimmings and it's all done and ready for a package. 

Thanks for dropping by today.  Take care!

Your tag is just the cutest ever, love the layering hills and terrific coloring, the ribbon is just gorgeous too!

Oh....I LOVE this tag! Love it! The hills behind Santa, Santa and the way you colored him. The decorative edge on the bottom. Your rock!
