Christmas Tags #4 and #5

Hi All!

Here today to share Christmas Tags #4 and #5. This first one is a strong reminder to me that I need to figure out what I'm going to do about out Christmas stockings this year.... As I mentioned a few posts ago, we are newlyweds and this is our first Christmas together and we have NO Christmas decorations. I want our stockings to be something special- the kind that we'll use for the next 30 years etc.

So- do I make them? Do I buy them? I wish my hubby had a strong opinion to guide my decision, but he has no opinion.... So, I'm feeling the stress of needing to make a decision soon- because if I' am going to make them I need to get started!!!

So here we go:

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to share any stocking ideas you have with me!

Supplies
Tag #4
Paper: white card stock
Stamps: PTI- Christmas blessings, Love lives here: holidays
Ink: PTI- simply chartreuse, true black, harvest gold, canyon clay, berry sorbet

Tag #5

Quick post to share with you my second Holiday Tag. FYI, my first one was randomly selected at the October Papertrey Ink blog hop and I won a $25 gift card! Woot Woot!!

 Check out the rest over the next few weeks and thanks for stopping by!

Supplies
Paper: white card stock
Stamps: PTI- Christmas blessings, love lives here: holiday

For Unto Us a Child is Born

Hi All!

I hope  you are all having a great week. We're enjoying some colder weather this week: windy, cold, and amazingly clear. Since we live near the tallest mountains- something like the lowest valley to highest peaks ratio - in the US,  we have GREAT VIEWS!!!

I am thinking ahead a lot to the upcoming Christmas season... we have ZERO Christmas decorations- yes, ZERO. So- I'm trying to figure out how to deck these halls on a major MAJOR budget... a work in progress for sure!

To start with, I'm working on my Christmas cards and tags and I'm going to put them all up over the next few weeks to share with you all. Here is my first:

This is a nice mix of masculine and feminine with the kraft and wood grain background and the angel. It's a fairly thick card with many layers, so it will not be making it through the mail.

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Supplies
Paper: kraft, pti- enchanted evening, vintage cream
Stamps: pti- love lives here: holiday, christmas blessings, background basics: woodgrain; kaiser craft- silly season
Ink: pti- true black, scarlet jewel, fine linen, ocean tides, vintage cream; Versamark
Other: pti- mat stack 3 die
