Waltzingmouse November Blog Hop - Christmas Tag


Are you Waltzing?  On the 17th of every month Waltzingmouse Stamps hosts a blog waltz.  The theme this month is ...   are you ready? .... wait for it.....  CHRISTMAS!  Now if you know Claire (Waltzingmouse owner and stamp designer EXTRAORDINAIRE) you know Christmas is her favorite holiday.   In fact I think there are more Waltzingmouse Christmas stamps than stamps for any other occasion.  So it just goes to follow that everyone will be pulling all the stops to bring their best and most festive to this waltz.  There's lots of Waltzingmouse goodness to choose from so yo can't go wrong.  You can get all the details as well as the links to all the other blogs participating at:  http://waltzingmouse.blogspot.com/


I know everyone is in a hurry to make it through the list of bloggers (I expect lots of participants this month!) so I will keep this short.  I made this Christmas tag to put on a very special present - sorry TOP SECRET - no peeking, no telling.   The purple bow is 1.5" wired ribbon, topped with a gold loom bow.  I wanted the ornament to look like vintage glass so I sugared the inside with Martha Stewart crystal fine glitter and added a little gem.    I hope you like it!  Can't wait to see all the fab goodies everyone came up with!

Oh my goodness, this is gorgeous. Honestly, so beautiful with the gold and the purple colors. The glitter on the inside of the ornament is so beautiful and that little bow, just about the most elegant and ornate looking element you could have chosen. I just love this and I bet whoever gets it will just love it. REally, really great job Jeanne.

Oh my GOODNESS, Jeanne! This is just stellar! It's like a vintage dream! The purple and gold are spectacular, I never would think to put those together, and they are amazing! I just love how FANCY this is...totally reminds me of real glass with the sparkle. And GIRL, you sure know how to WORK some RIBBON (shutting off Caps Lock now, heeee!)
