Happy (almost) November everybody!

Can you believe it?  I know I can't.  2017 is almost over, and I feel like it has only just begun!  But guess what blogger friends?  I have a surprise for you...I am now a member of the Christmas With The Cuties design team!  Isn't that great?  Now I have even MORE of a reason to get cranking on those Christmas cards throughout the year!  The challenge for this time is "tags," and this month's sponsor for the challenge was Sasayaki Glitter, who has the CUTEST digi images!  Check out Naz's Etsy shop, if you haven't already by now!  Here is what I created with the sponsor images:

I don't usually "do" Christmas tags, so I may put these onto card bases at some point.  The images are "Snowman and Duck" and "Candy Cane Penguin."  I used alcohol markers to color both tags, and cut them out using Labels Eight from Spellbinders.  While they were still in the die, I went around the edges with Picked Raspberry and Candied Apple Oxide inks, respectively.  I really love how that turned out!  I really need to make time to play more with these inks!!

CHNC #357:  ATG or something with wings
HIMCR #324:  Any Holiday

Thanks for stopping by this evening, and have a blessed rest of the week!
