Tag You're It Challenge #36

Wow another week gone by...and another week closer to Christmas.  I have a few more cards and tags to make before the holidays arrive!  And, of course, can't let up on my tennis so my husband and I are headed out to the courts this am!

Just in time for the holidays is this holiday inspired tag from Joyce Mehrberg over at Tag You're It Challenge #36.  I just love making cards and tag with houses and this one is no exception.  I was inspired by many of the images in this tag...the Santa silhouette over the moon, the houses in the foreground...all of these images this just captures Christmas for me.

Here is my take on the inspiration tag.  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with...

I started off by using distressed ink for the night sky.  I blended two different blues and a purple to get this rich color.  I then cut my moon from a pale yellow cardstock and used distress ink to provide some shading.  I colored some white cardstock with a few different colors of distressed ink for the houses and trees.

I then stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.  As a final touch, I stamped and heat embossed my Santa and his reindeer!

Can't wait to see what you come up with!  Please join us for this fun challenge!


  1. Susan this is over the moon darling! Love the colors , the sleigh and gold embossing!

  2. I just love your tag--what a fun neighborhood you have created, and love how everything is so very inky. Your Santa with his many reindeer make this card so very festive, and I see you were smarter than I was because you left room for a sentiment.

  3. This is so lovely! Your colorful houses are wonderful!

  4. I love the vibrant cheerful colors you used and your graphic design.
