"Ruby N" ... you're the lucky lady who wins an extra entry into Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags! Tracey will be making her prize draws this Monday! Good luck Ruby!

This week's challenge is double the fun as our dear, sweet and super talented friend Tracey McNeely has invited the CCC design team to join in some Christmas tag fun! 

If you are in need of some inspiration & ideas, then search no further than "25 Days of Christmas Tags". Your Christmas Tag Idea Folder will be overflowing!

You're invited to create a snowman themed tag OR a snowman themed card with a tag on it.

And yes, there are prizes!!! I will randomly select one name from comments left here that will earn you an additional entry on the goodies over at Tracey's blog. Check out all the details & goodies up for grams by clicking on Tracey's link above!

I've created a sweet little snowman tag that was quick to whip up using a Silhouette cut file. This tag could easily be reproduced using circle & oval punches (the oval for the hat brim).

I must admit that I struggled with the 'clean & graphic' part of this challenge and have concluded that snowman just don't do CAG all that well!  I think they need snowflakes, twine & bits of bling to create the "holly and jolly".  

I'm also thinking that I may have stretched CAG a bit with this wee dude! 

Wishing you happy crafty days full of holiday card & tag making!

 Happy crafting :)

  10. This is exactly the same as these decorations we made out of colored felt as kids!!!!!!!!! And I mean exactly! Some had the top hat like you have, and some had earmuffs. They all had colorful ties or bowties with shaped sequins glued on. Of course I love your tag, how could I not!
