SSCB#50 Tag It! - Lucky You!

Hi and thanks for stopping by ! I know most of us are running around trying to get it all together for the big day.  Wow!  Christmas crept up really fast didn't it?  I've been trying to fit in some regular check ups at the doctor too before I start a new year with a new deductible.  I've got all the groceries bought and the cooking will begin on Thursday.  That leaves today for a pretty tag for you.  We're at the half way point of the latest challenge at Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog.  This time it's all about those tags.  Tags usually come together pretty quick so this is a good one for December.   Were you expecting a Christmas tag?  I thought I'd do something completely different!!!

My favorite sort of gift to give is an unexpected one. I'm hopeless at remembering birthdays, and sometimes "a little something" just can't compete with all the other gifts. So this tag is for a very happy un birthday! Lucky you to get a gift, and lucky me to have you as a friend!
The poker chip die is still one of my favorites and it pairs beautifully with the Lucky word die. I'm going to have to pin this one in my secret church/school board in case I ever get sweet talked into working the casino night! This would sure dress up the gift table wouldn't it? I think this one would be great for one of the guys too!
The pretty stitched scalloped border is from Pretty Pink Posh, and you can find it in the store at Serendipity Stamps. I love the wood look sequins (also in the store) they mix and match with any and every color you can imagine. They add a natural look, and I love to add them to just about everything!

I hope you'll join us at Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. Any sort of tag for any occassion will do - just make sure you include at least one Serendipity Stamps image (die or stamp) on your project. Looking for more inspiration? You can find more samples from the design team as well as our guest this month, Susan Wuthrich of Blue Fog Studio, here. You have until January 4th to play along!

Oh yesssss.. our 50% off stamp of the month? The Cupcake!
