Tags and remembering our pup!

Hi there!  I spent a little bit of time today playing around in my stamp space and made a few Christmas tags!  These little guys are just so much fun and they are the perfect little piece of artwork to dress up up present!  I grabbed a couple of Christmas stamp sets and some Whisper White card stock and got to stamping!  Take a look:

I stamped that handsome reindeer stamp three times and then stamped some faint falling snow in the background on this one.

I added a red polka-dot to make a Rudolph and stamped the To/From in matching Chocolate Chip.  I added a tag string up top from jute twine.  

This little tree is adorable!!  I used markers to get a brown stem and green leaves and then added the same stamp I used earlier as snow to make ornaments on the tree!  The stamp set is called Warmed and Wonder and is a hostess set from the Holiday mini catalog.  

I stamped the snowflake (also from the same is pretty versatile!) in Smoky Slate and then the sentiment in Real Red.

Third one I made also uses a stamp from the same set!  I colored it in with markers and added a fun falling snowflake border to the edge all willy nilly!

It is a great set and I really enjoyed playing with it today!

Here are all three of my tags together!  I had such fun making them!  Cannot wait to dress up some presents with them!

On another sad little note.  I just wanted to take a minute to remember our very special puppy Zoe.  It was one year ago today that we lost our sweet girl.  She had a heart condition and after gracing our family for 8 years we had to say our goodbyes to her.  There has been a dog sized hole in my heart since that day. Hubby and I talk about her all the time and reminisce over just how dear she was to us and how much we miss her (which happens to be lots and lots!!).   She was such a part of the family and I know that I will always miss her big.  Sniffles.

With much love, always.


Have a good night!  I will be back soonest with more craft-y goodness to share with you.
