A Tag and a Holiday Cards and More Publication!

Hello!  Happy Thursday!  We are having a great week!  Monday Ariel and I went to see the musical Mary Poppins which she loved!  She asked me if she could be an actress one day!  :>  Than on Tuesday we spent the day at Tinkertown (amusement park) and by day i mean all 7 hours they were open!  We love tinkertown!  Yesterday it was finally hot enough to swim so we went with my sister in law to a friends pool and had fun with the cousins!  Today we are off to my friends who also has a pool!  Tomorrow is the beach...no crafting getting done over here I've been unable to get off  the couch in the evenings..

Today I am here sharing a Holiday tag to play along with Moxie fab World's Holiday Cards and More The Gift Tag challenge!  I enjoy making tags and wrapping up Christmas gifts with them!  I played with my leaping deer memory box die (a favorite last Christmas)  and came up with this:

The great part about this tag is that I got a photo of it, the bad part is that I lost it!  Sigh I still have it as its in the house and Christmas is still months away...I will find it....  So that said I don't know the measurements of it, it's small but not tiny....  I used some patterned paper by Echo Park, there Very Merry Christmas line along with Hero Arts Happy Holiday stamp and some twinery twine!

In this issue (Holiday Cards and More 8)  I also have two publications!  I have a gift wrap and I also have this home decor item!  I made both of them the last day of the call (what is it about the last day that I get so fired up with great ideas?)  This candle came to me while cooking dinner it made so much sense to me, I made it, had to take a photo of it with no natural light (at the time it was getting dark early) and I was sure it would get picked.  Not trying to be boastful sometimes you just get that feeling (anyone else feel like that?)  I love it so much I think this year I will make it to give as gifts.  Hmm this may even make great teacher gifts!  Isn't that nice to figure out in August?  Here is how it appears in the issue:







For more details on this candle please check out this issue!

Thank you for stopping by today!  Hope you have a great rest of the week!  I am off to Michaels on the way to my friends pool (wish me luck taking three kids there, Ariel's friend is coming, Michaels has a lot of crafty and not crafty stuff my kids love to ask for!)
