Tag You're It Challenge #12 - Jingle!

So how is everybody doing? I've been soooo busy lately. Finally got the tree up and decorated this weekend. Wreath on the front door? Check! Lights in the windows? YEP! We even did a little furniture shopping. I've been looking for a corner TV stand forever and found just the right one!! Busy week too... eye check up tomorrow so I'm guessing I'll be vision impaired from the drops to dilate, and then the dentist later in the week. Yes... again! Still waiting for the perfect crown for my implant... he's sent it back twice already!! And I thought I was a perfectionist!  

Today I'm playing along at Tag You're It Challenge!  The designer this week is my friend Tracey McNeely - and let's just say.. Tracey?  Well she is the QUEEN of Tags!  I bet you knew that already!   Every year she has an annual event called the 25 Tags of Christmas!  Nuff said!!

I took a cue from the jingle bells on Tracey's tag and made some little glittery ones of my own.  I love the fun fresh colors she used - they give a bit of a retro feel don't they?  You don't have to use bells, you can be inspired by the color or the design - just run with whatever makes you happy!

How cute is this! I love the hearts around the border of the tag and the silvery glimmer in the jingle bells is genius!

Love your take of Tracey's tag! Your teeth have to fit perfectly.:)
We cut down our old TV hutch because it was beautiful real wood. Worked perfectly in the corner for our big screan TV.
