Tree and Tags or is that Tags and Tree?
Its Saturday again and today is Decorate the tree and house day and well I have some boring chores too! ironing where does it all come from??  Hubby is working today and its a good opportunity to wrap a couple of gifts, I will also be wrapping a couple of gifts for my son and hubbys boys too!

So what’s this weeks Totally Gorjuss challenge? 
Challenge 111 - For someone special – and we have the wonderful sponsor Simon Says Stamp
I have not done much Christmas shopping, but the things I have got need wrapping right! and after I have wrapped them I need Tags… so I have made these Special ones….

I have Stamped on to Kraft card stock with versa mark and embossed with bronze embossing powder, Cut the tags out with a Marianne creatables die, Coloured with distress inks, Santa’s Beard and all the white is coloured with white gelly roll pen, and his boots in black gelly roll! I stamped the snowflakes and edges in versa mark and embossed in white detailed embossing powder.. a little bakers twine, so what do you think?

Here are the challenges I am playing along with: 
Crafty Catz - Santa's Hat. 
Glitter Geeks - Anything Goes. - C10 
Jelly park Challenges – Anything but a Card. 
Jingle Belles – Christmas. 
Raise The Bar – Christmas. 
Simply Create Too – Embossing. 
Stampin For The Weekend – Christmas
Marianne's Design Divas - Christmas. 

We got our Christmas Tree last weekend and have had it in the garage keeping watered and cool and brought it in the house this morning, popped it in the stand watered it! unwrapped it from the netting and ½ the forest floor has fallen out! ekk! A wise friend told me
"with a bit of luck, all that debris will fool the tree into thinking its still firmly planted in the Forest and it will last for ages lol xxx"

Ohhh I hope your right Mands!

Happy Saturday everyone! xx
