{ 12 tags of Christmas - Day 8 and 9 }

I know these are not the best tags you have ever seen, but I am running out of creative options. Tim's tag Day 8. I had nothing, but the tag to work with. I made my own ornaments and I thought I would use a wrapper from a chocolate Santa that arrived from Germany last week. I used the gold stars since I did not have any gold flourishes. I was going to use a stamp, but I forgot to stamp it and later it was too late. The background stamps are Stamp Camp and the sentiment "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" is from The Paper Studio. Tim's tag Day 9. I have only ONE Santa stamp and it's not even cute. I thought of everything and couldn't come up with anything so I used the not so cute stamp. When I was completely done with the tag I did not like the stamp so I downloaded a photo from the internet. I cut it out after printing and tried to "blend" it in the tag. It didn't work. The Santa is so much better than what I had originally. Stamp Camp and Impression Obsession stamps (key, branches). I wasn't able to achieve the "distressed/icicle" paint look because I missed a step where I had to wipe it off. I know, it's late. I am still 2 tags behind. I hope I win something in the next day or two so I have some real stuff to play with.
