Oh My - Christmas Tags

Hi, Judy here. It was my turn this week to host the challenge and I am hosting a Christmas Tag challenge. I love making tags for my Christmas gifts. Many of my tags over the year have turned into one of the next years Christmas ornaments.

We are sponsored this week by Bugaboo Stamps! Here is a fun read about our sponsor:

As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of paper crafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we’re still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you’re bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!

If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

One lucky winner this week will win seven free digis! The winner will be chosen by random org.

Come and join us this week. We would love to see your art work. Check out the tags of our design team below and check their blogs for even more inspiration.

 I chose Diane's card for the lovely flowers that she made but also for the beautiful layout and all the extra little bits that she added such as the gemstones above and below the greeting, the ribbon underneath the top layer and then the bottom layer with all those pretty hand made flowers. She ended it off with a beautiful bow and a flower on it as well. Great job Diane on making a stunning Christmas card.

And the winner this week is .....

Thank you to all the participants in the last Holly Jolly Challenge. What lovely cards that were submitted to us for this week’s challenge.  It is my turn to pick the top pick this week and with so many lovely entries it was hard to pick one but I had to. 

My choice for top pick is a card by Heidi.  I loved her image of the reindeer and the unusual color scheme for a Christmas card.  Her details in completing the card were extraordinary. 

Thanks so much for playing, Heidi ... be sure to grab our Winner’s Badge.
