The 25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019~ Day 1 (November 4, 2019): Featuring ALTENEW

Hello,

Woo Hooo! Today is the official launch of the 2019 edition of Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags event!  Let your Christmas spirit SOAR!!
I'm thrilled to be part of this year's Design Team...
That's me in the first photo, along with three VERY talented paper crafters - Kim Heggins, Lindsey M-p and Joyce Mehrberg, and, of course, our sweet Tracey. We'll be commenting on your fabulous tags in the gallery, as well as designing tags of our own, as inspiration.

Tracey has done an outstanding job once again in finding generous sponsors to offer prizes! Check out the lineup:



Incentive galore, right?!

With that as an introduction...

Welcome to Day 1, if you are just arriving for the first time all the details and the linkup can be found HERE!

Our very first sponsor is amazing Altenew!

My tags feature the stunning Modern Poinsettia set...and yes, I got carried away and used every image, be they on the four larger tags or the set of smaller tags. Lots of gold embossing! 



Designer papers (excluding the black cardstock) are Kaisercraft's First Noel. 

Please visit the main post and link-up for all the guidelines. You can participate in two ways: make and post a tag or tags inspired by any of the designers' tags or comment every day on Tracey's blog as well as the designers' posts. Do both for more chances to win a prize! Let the tagging begin!

This is beyond amazing, Carol. The dark background with the pop of light is just Oh, so beautiful. What an inspiring idea. I'll have to use that bit of inspiration to create a tag. Yours is just as lovely as could be. Thanks for sharing.
