MoJo Monday #172

Decided to try my hand at the MoJo Monday again. Needed a couple of cards for the month of January so here I am. Besides, it's a contest week, Yeah! This was all made with scraps from my scrapbin including the rosette. Actually the rosette was a left over from Halloween so I just added another layer to it and voila'! The button was a leftover from a 'tag' from the 12 tags of christmas. I used the inside of the button on the tag and had this clear part left over. I punched a small circle and it fit right inside so I added a brad and there you have it. The sentiment was from a Close to my Heart stamp set and I cut the edge to look like a ribbon banner type. I thought it turned out pretty cute, hope you like it!!!

Christmas Vacation

Well Hello bloggers. I finally made it back. It was a great time. We had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I trust you all did too?? I spent about 10 days over at my sister's in Rockledge and we made the 12 Tags of Christmas inspired by Tim Holtz. We made ours pennant style which was her friend, Annette's idea so that they could be strung together and hung up for a Christmas decoration. The 'tags' that Tim used are not really functional, they are very cool but they seem to just get thrown in a pile afterwards and we didn't want to see that happen to all our hard work, thus the pennants!!! It took us about 8 days to make all 12 tags. A couple of them were quite labor intensive and of course, we had to make a daily run to Michael's for anything that we were missing. I think the only day we didn't go shopping for something was Christmas day because everything was closed that day, lol!!! So, without further ado, here are my 12 Tags of Christmas Tag #1 - The Little House Tag #2 - Happy Holidays Birdie Tag #3 - Bird in Tree Tag #4 - Santa Wish Tag #5 - Santa Dec 25 Tag #6 - Reindeer Tag #7 - Santa over Town Tag #8 - Poinsettia Tag #9 - Peace on Earth Tag #10 - Snowman Tag #11 - Tree/Sleigh Tag #12 - Joy Ornament Can hardly wait til next year!!!
