25 Days of Christmas Tags~Day 5

Hello,

We're zipping right along through this month; already time to bid you a warm welcome  to Day 5 of Tracey's 25 Days of Christmas Tags
Pop Quiz: have you played along with us yet? If so, excellent...and if not, time to bring out that festive spirit and get going! Let's fill the gallery!

Newton's Nook Designs is our fabulous sponsor today, you'll be dazzled by the Newton's designers, as well as those by my lovely companions on this journey - KimLindsey Joyce - and, of course, our sweet hostess, Tracey.


Cup of Cocoa stamps and dies are now part of my collection and oh, how smitten I am with the array of delightful mugs of cocoa, complete with marshmallows, candy canes, whipped cream, cinnamon sticks and dark, rich chocolate!  I created three tags, using nearly all the images in the set (a few are on stand-by for upcoming projects) because they are tooooo adorable to resist!  Sweet-tooth tingling the entire time I was stamping, colouring (still need much more practice with copics), die-cutting and assembling!

Yes, now that the winter chills are upon us, nearly every day is a hot chocolate kind of day!


Hugs in a mug? Yes, please!


I agree...

The gang...


Our generous sponsors

You can find oodles of inspiration on today's event post. Details about how you can play along - and win prizes! - can be found HERE


Looking forward to seeing your tags in the gallery!
