O' Christmas Tree...

Yay!!!!! It's my turn to set the challenge on Tag You're It! this week and of course it has to have a Christmas theme - 'coz I do love making Christmas themed things! So my challenge is to make a tag with any interpretation of a Christmas tree - you could do a bog standard tree or think outside the box and try something new, use traditional colours or funky bright colours. Just so long as it's some sort of Christmas tree.

I have gone for my favourite colours, I am such a traditional girl when it comes to Christmas so green, burgundy and red are all I tend to use. Sorting through my stash last week I found a couple of these making Memories clear frames (I don't know where they came from or how long I have had them!!) and they are the perfect size for making a tag. I used a cheap and cheerful stamp that I got last year (well actually Sam got them for me as I couldn't get my hands on any)and a scrap of fabric, some string and an odd bit of ribbon.

Oooooohh nearly forgot to say - I am offering a little prize this week (winner will be picked at random) and everyone who makes a tag will be entered so please do pop over to Tag You're it for details and join in.
