Grungy Monday 26 - It's Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas

Good Evening Folks

Well I don't know about you but I can hardly believe that it is the end of another weekend.  Where did the last week go?

My post tonight is this week's submission for the Grungy Monday Challenge with the lovely Linda.  I can't believe we are on Week 26 - despite having a few weeks of extended challenges!

This week we were taken by Fairy Dust to HERE where we saw the lovely Tim Holtz working on a 2009 tag.  As Christmas is only 42 days away (yikes!) I thought I would follow suit and make a Christmas tag in order that I can use it to make a Christmas card (I don't have many made yet!!). 

So without further ado........
(I have no idea why the tag and the bottom of the card looks crinkly on this photo - it doesn't in the flesh!!)

I have to be honest, this is a second version.  The first was a little fiddly on the edges and did not look good so I filed that one and changed to this one.   Here is a close up of some of the details.  You can actually see here that I used the Distress Stickles! 

The Merry Christmas is a new acquisition which I think I bought when I was on holiday in  Cornwall.  Yes, I managed to find a scrapbooking shop in Camborne!!  Wherever it was I bought it I think it is going to become a favourite.  It is such a lovely design and prints lovely and crisp!

Well, don't forget to pop along to Linda's site (click on the Grungy Monday tab on the right hand side of my blog) and also pop along to Tim Holtz's blog for more wonderful ideas and inspiration.

Please leave me a comment.
