 Hello everyone,

Here we are with another new challenge over at AS YOU LIKE IT  a place where you tell us your "Favourite"and WHY!!

This fortnight we are looking for your favourite..SANTA OR SNOWMAN

I was torn, I really was, but Santa still draws me in, and I have many pictures of Santa..

So as I was on a tag making day,, that is what I went with..

and after cutting up an office manilla folder to get tags of kraft colour,
 I then started ripping up scraps of Christmas DP because I can spread it around
 and make it look like I have a lot on there when really, I haven't..

glued the scarps down...

filled in some gaps, and found my postage stamps with Santa on them..

Sorted the sentiment, obviously the favourite die of all time..

and needed a focal point and these are some of my Santas.

but ended up using this one cut off the corner from some DP
he was sort of fussy cut..

picking lace, pom poms and trims..

Went with this one..
and grey pom poms,
 then added the pine leaves and bells etc..

and then my tag was over dressed and I loved it..

We are sponsored by..

and would love to see you 

So there we go, thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..
