Christmas Tag

Hello my dears,  I'm late today in posting my DT creation for

It's been a whirl wind week with preparations for Christmas,
and welcoming my new baby Grandaughter Lily Rose into the world,  Lily arrived Wednesday evening weighing a healthy 8lbs and she is now home with her new Mum & Dad and she is thriving!!

Anyway I've managed to make a large  Christmas tag to go onto
one of my gifts.  I used the stunning Lemoncraft Christmas Greetings paper pack and also some lovely chipboard pieces from Scrapiniec, both are available over at just click on the name and hey presto you are in the store. 

Here is a close up of some of the elements used from the store:
(I stamped straight onto the centre of the bottom chipboard)

Thank you so much for popping in to visit with me, I will do my very best to get another couple of posts up before the big day arrives.  In the meantime have a lovely weekend.
